Death Row

Eight prison residents are under the sentence of death in Idaho.

Seven of the residents are men. They are incarcerated at Idaho Maximum Security Institution south of Boise.

The one female under sentence of death, Robin Row, is incarcerated at Pocatello Women’s Correctional Center in Pocatello.

Three executions have occured since Idaho enacted a new death penalty statute in 1977.

Residents 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 death row residents 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.
