But sdgraham is correct - a wrongful execution is not a mistake. It is a deliberate, intentional act. The conviction may be described as wrongful or mistaken, but the appropriate adjective would depend on the circumstances.I'm with liliput - I knew "mistaken" was not the right word, and was having trouble coming up with the correct word. As to the discussion as to whether you should refer to the conviction or the execution, I totally disagree with sdgraham. Definitely stay with "wrongful execution". The execution obviously the result of a conviction, so that nuance would be understood.
You have left out one important word.I understand but I am still a little bit confused on how to explain what I intend to say. Somone mentioned ' wrongful execution' Then, can I say as follows?
Sometimes death penalty can lead to wrongful execution.
