According to an article by Chad Livengood of the Springfield News-Leader:
In March, Muschany signed on to a U.S. Supreme Court brief filed by Gov. Matt Blunt urging the high court to clarify whether the Eighth Amendment prohibits the death penalty for child rapists.
Blunt urged lawmakers in his January State of the State address to pass legislation allowing the death penalty to be applied to child rapists.
The Supreme Court eventually struck down a Louisiana law that allowed the death penalty to be administered in cases of child rape and sodomy.
