Capital punishment in the Bahamas
Capital punishment in the Bahamas is a legal punishment, and is conducted by hanging at Fox Hill Prison. The country is currently considered abolitionist in practice, as their last execution was over 15 years ago, on January 6, 2000. As of August 2012 only one convict, Mario Flowers, remains under the sentence of death. Since independence from Britain, it has held more than a dozen executions.
