Seven years after Scott Peterson was sentenced to death for murdering his pregnant wife Laci, his appeal is moving at lightning speed, at least compared to those of his 725 fellow California Death Row inmates. Appealing the death penalty in California can take two decades, meaning that condemned prisoners are more likely to die behind bars of natural causes than be executed. Now voters in California get an opportunity this November to vote on a measure that would abolish the death penalty. (AP Photo/Eric Risberg, File)
