The Supreme Court said Friday it would decide whether a convicted child rapist could be put to death, thereby reconsidering a four-decade hiatus on executions for crimes other than murder. Rape was commonly prosecuted as a capital crime in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The last execution for rape was in 1964, in Missouri. But Louisiana and several other states have adopted laws in recent years that permit the death penalty for the rape of a child younger than 12.

But Bruce Dodd, an attorney for the Louisiana prison system, said Charles was "in good spirits."
