Weekly Report from the Board Meeting at Holman Prison 8.10.16

We are encouraged that it appears to have become almost automatic that attorneys representing a defendant in a capital murder case ask the Court in a separate motion to declare the death penalty section of the Alabama Capital Murder Statute unconstitutional. Who would have thought that only a couple of years ago? Obviously Alabama still has a way to go but at this point we do see the cup as half full, not as half empty, not always easy with the national negativity that we are drowning in right now.

Great news from Delaware where the Delaware Supreme Court ruled its death penalty unconstitutional due to the Florida Hurst ruling! This leaves Alabama as the only state with jury override! Get with it Alabama and get rid of the death penalty!
