Larry Mackey, the former federal prosecutor in the Oklahoma City bombing case, will be the featured speaker for the annual Randall T. Shepard Lecture Series hosted by the Evansville Bar Association.
Mackey, now a partner at Barnes & Thornburg LLP, will be discussing the death penalty in the United States at the event which begins at 5:30 p.m. Sept. 19 at the auditorium on the fourth floor of the Old National Bank building, One Main St., Evansville.
The lecture is free and open to the public. Former Indiana Chief Justice Randall T. Shepard will speak briefly at the event.
Mackey was a member of the team that prosecuted the bombing mastermind, Timothy McVeigh. After a five-week trial, McVeigh was convicted of the 1995 bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City which killed 168, including 19 children. He was executed in 2001.
