    Although the death penalty is legal in California, there were legal challenges in recent years which prompted the State to redo its procedure, which included the building of a new gas chamber, and updating of the injection method to ensure compliance with legal requirements. Most recently, supplies of sodium thiopental, the drug required for lethal injection, expired, and domestic manufacturers have been unwilling to supply the State with new supplies. Until California is able to obtain supplies from foreign manufacturers, which will likely take 2 or 3 years, it is unlikely we will see another execution in the State.

    In regards to Richard Ramirez specifically, no execution date has been set. Death Penalty cases are cases are automatically appealed in California. In the Ramirez case, all state appeals have been exhausted. He is still entitled to federal appeals, but his defense attorney will likely not file an appeal unless the executions resume. If executions resume some time in the next 2 years, his appeals will likely take another 2 years after that, which means he is not likely to be executed until at least 2015. Currently, there are 713 offenders (including 19 women) on California's Death Row.
