For obvious reasons, Jarvis has a very personal take on the morality and ethics of capital punishment. Having been an inmate at San Quentin for 40 years, he has personally known men who have been executed. He has counseled fellow inmates who suffer from great depression, as they face their own mortality daily. And, he believes that if people on the outside knew that there were innocent people on death row, they could not in good conscience allow the government to execute them. You will also hear from the lead executioner who was in charge the day of the murder in which Jarvis was implicated.

Meet Pema Chodron, beloved Buddhist teacher, author and nun, who has been Jarvis’s spiritual advisor for over two decades.

Theme song SENTENCED, is complements of the band Stick Figure, from their album “Set In Stone.”
