news_l6.gif SERTOMAN OF THE DAY:

Sertoman of the Day:   Mike Magee was born 1939 in Houston but grew up in Chicago starting at about age 2. He can remember looking out his window and seeing the Troop Trains. He went to school in the Chicago area, then came out to C.U. in 1957, got a degree in marketing, then went back to Chicago and sold shoes for 9 years with the Florshiem Shoe Co. He liked Denver so well he came back and tried selling shoes here. He got tired of the flying and driving back and forth with the shoe business so he got into real estate back in 1972, then later with his wife, Barb.

Stephen Greenspan has a doctorate in Developmental Psychology from the University of Rochester and a postdoctoral certificate in Developmental Disabilities from UCLA's Neuropsychiatric Institute. He has held a number of academic and research positions, specifically at: George Peabody College for Teachers of Vanderbilt University, the Boys Town Center for the Study of Youth Development and the University of Nebraska, the University of Connecticut (where he remains Emeritus Professor of Educational Psychology) and the University of Colorado (where he is Clinical Professor of Psychiatry).

Here is a short excerpt from his speech: “I want to talk about the death penalty in America, and my experience as an expert witness in death penalty cases. I am a retired psychology professor who has developed a second career where I am often asked to testify in capital cases where the defendant is of marginal intelligence (often because of significant brain damage stemming from a childhood condition such as birth complications) and where that might be a mitigating factor arguing for life rather then execution. Most of the time I am hired by the defense, but I am willing to work for the prosecution and have in a couple of cases. However, I am rarely approached by the prosecution, for reasons I can only speculate about.

I have consulted in about 30 or 40 cases, and testified in maybe half that number (only once in Colorado, although I consulted in a few others). Sometimes a case ends before a trial (when the state decides to offer a plea deal) or my findings are not what the defense wants to hear, so that ends my involvement.

I have read materials on many cases and have attained a fairly good understanding of the issues, both from these cases but also from immersing myself in the legal and mental health literatures pertaining to the criminal justice system, especially the death penalty.” http://www.stephen-greenspan.com
