Weekly Report from the Board Meeting at Holman Prison 10.11.17

 

We had so much to discuss and also to celebrate about last week’s stay. However the words of Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall after the State decided not to appeal the stay are certainly a reality check: “We will seek a new execution date as soon as possible.” There was too little time to appeal against the stay for the execution to occur on Thursday, Marshall said in a statement.” And of course we are now only one week away from the scheduled execution of Torrey McNabb.

We are on a roller coaster! As you know on Monday the State appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court to lift the stay granted by the 11th of the execution of Jeffrey Borden scheduled for tomorrow. Yesterday Borden’s attorneys asked the U. S. Supreme Court to keep the execution on hold. Meanwhile Jeff has been moved to the death cell.

 Alabama plans to go forward with the scheduled executions while there is still an unresolved issue before the court. We wish we could say that we are surprised but unfortunately knowing Alabama’s love for the death penalty we are not and this  makes it all the more important that WE ACT! NOW!

Weekly Report from the Board Meeting at Holman Prison 9.20.17

The attorney for Gary Otte who was executed last week by the state of Ohio stated that she believed that the inmate suffered pain during lethal injection. She tried but was unable to get help to stop the execution. Ohio, like Alabama uses midazolam in its execution protocol. In addition, more bad news also for us was that the U.S. Supreme Court denied a request for a stay even though Otte had been under the age of 21 at the time of the crime.

Weekly Report from the Board Meeting at Holman Prison 9.13.17

Lawyers last Wednesday asked the Alabama Supreme Court to stop the executions since the 11th Circuit Court ordered hearings in a separate lawsuit challenging the humaneness of the state’s lethal injection procedure. They argued the execution should not go forward while there's a pending trial on the "constitutionality of the method of execution that the state intends to use."
