Hassan Bacote: Sentenced to Die
A Johnston County jury sentenced Hassan Bacote to die for the 2007 shooting death of 18 year old Anthony Surles. Mr. Bacote had few family members and had a life disconnected from positive role models.
He has likely already been moved to Death Row in Raleigh, where he will never have contact with another human being in the outside world, until the day the State decides to end his life.
