Governor Fallin: Grant Richard Glossip a reprieve
Ten men have been exonerated from death row in Oklahoma in the past 35 years, four of them due to falsified testimony by criminals who had their sentences reduced in exchange for their testimony.
Richard Glossip, who is scheduled for execution on September 16, was convicted solely on the testimony of his coworker, Justin Sneed. Sneed confessed to the murder and avoided the death penalty himself by implicating Richard.
A reprieve will give Richard's pro bono lawyers time to prove his innocence.
Signed the petition to Governor Mary Fallin.
