Texas leaders are in an uproar after a state judge declared the death penalty unconstitutional in a death penalty trail.

Judge Kevin Fine said in his ruling that it is safe to assume innocent people have been executed. Legal experts say it's unlikely Fine's ruling will hold up under appeal. Attorney General Greg Abbott said, "We regret the court's legally baseless order." and said the ruling ignores Supreme Court precedent.
