OLATHE, Kan. (AP) _ A former death row warden from Georgia will headline a conference in Kansas next month on abolishing capital punishment.
The 2012 Abolition Conference takes place Nov. 10 in Olathe, sponsored by the Kansas Coalition Against the Death Penalty.
Allen Ault was responsible for overseeing executions as a death row warden in Georgia. Ault plans to talk about what he calls the traumatic impact of executions on himself and many of the corrections officers with whom he worked.
Kansas Coalition executive director Mary Sloan says Ault's story highlights an issue sometimes forgotten in debates about capital punishment.
