In September, we reported via the Innocence project that Oklahoma's Pardon and Parole Board voted 3-1 to commute Julius Jones' death sentence to life in prison with the possibility of parole. Jones has spent 19 years on death row for a murder that compelling evidence suggests he didn't commit. You can read more about his story in our previous post. Julius Jones is scheduled to be executed in two days even though parole boards have recommended that his sentence be commuted two times based on the many doubts in his case.
The decision is now solely in the hands of Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt. Today's action is to send a message to the governor, urging him to stay Jones' execution.
