In her seven years on the state’s highest criminal court, ex-Judge Elsa Alcala became best known as the voice questioning capital punishment, even in the state most enamored of it. In this Behind the Walls interview, the recently retired judge asks whether it’s time for a death penalty moratorium in Texas. She also questions the direction of today’s Republican Party, talks about the high-profile Bobby Moore case, and offers a look into her childhood as an orphan raised by her older siblings.
