“"I have spent 15 years and 4 months in solitary confinement. In the image, Expression of Faith, the drawing is of me in my cell. It portrays the remorse and guilt for having done wrong. I am looking away from the door and it is an expression of my faith."

- Karl Roberts

In May 2000, Karl Roberts was convicted of the rape and strangling of his 12-year-old niece. Roberts told the court: "I want to die“ and waived his rights to any appeals, but a judge decided his death row sentence would automatically be appealed.
