The authors discuss the Florida capital felony sentencing law, as amended in response to the decision of the Supreme Court of the United States in Furman v. Georgia. They examine developments in the construction and application of the statutory provisions for sentencing and appellate review, with a particular emphasis on the "aggravating circumstances" that the statute provides as standards to guide and control the imposition of the death sentence.
