Death Row

A row of doors leading to cells at Idaho Maximum Security Institution
Offenders under the sentence of death are held at IMSI.
Current count: 12 (11 men, one woman)

Twelve offenders are under the sentence of death in Idaho - - 11 men and one woman. The men are incarcerated at Idaho Maximum Security Institution south of Boise. The woman, Robin Row, is incarcerated at Pocatello Women’s Correctional Center in Pocatello.

Three inmates have been executed since Idaho enacted a new death penalty statute in 1977.

Offenders under the sentence of death are kept in their cells 23 hours a day. They have the option of being in an outside recreation area for one hour a day. The only other time inmates are out of their 12-foot by seven-foot cells is when they are escorted to the shower, meeting with an attorney or being given medical care. Their hands are always restrained while they are being moved from one location to another.
