"It may be the last friendly face I ever see. I must admit, at the moment I sorely regret helping reinstate the death penalty on Riosa."
―Ransom Casterfo, to Leia Organa[src]

Death penalty was the practice of imposing the punishment of death for people convicted of certain serious crimes. Worlds with the death penalty usually counted treason as a capital offense. In 28 ABY, Senator Ransolm Casterfo lent his support to a campaign to reinstate the death penalty on his homeworld of Riosa. At the time, more Centrist star systems were leaning toward it. Ironically, Casterfo ended up facing capital punishment after he was framed for the assassination of Tai-Lin Garr.[1]
