Web Exclusive: Death row inmate prepares for Prop 34 outcome

Nancy Mullane

William (Mike) Dennis has been on San Quentin's death row for 24 years, and on North Segregation for 17 years. He spoke with KALW’s Nancy Mullane on Monday, November 5 by phone about the climate inside the prison, as inmates anticipate the outcome of tomorrow’s vote on Proposition 34.

The CDCR has not told the inmates on Death Row what will happen if it passes, Dennis says. There are men on his tier who have exhausted all of their appeals and they will be relieved if the Proposition does pass, Dennis adds.

Tune into Crosscurrents today at 5pm on 91.7FM for the next installment of Nancy Mullane's series on reporting from inside California's most restricted state prisons. 

Nancy Mullane develops, reports, and produces feature stories for This American Life, National Public Radio, and KALW. She is the author of the book Life After Murder: Five Men in Search of Redemption.
