Weekly Report from the Board Meeting at Holman Prison 5.18.16

Last Thursday was a rollercoaster which thankfully ended well for all of us at Holman and for many of our friends and families. The Eleventh Circuit issued a stay, scheduling Oral Arguments on Vernon Madison’s competency issues in Atlanta for June 23rd. The State of Alabama appealed this stay to the U.S. Supreme Court and as that court locked in a 4-4 vote, the lower court’s ruling stayed in place. Justice Kennedy, who is looked on as a swing vote, regrettably voted to lift the stay.

Weekly Report from the Board Meeting at Holman Prison 4.6.16

We are always on the lookout for ways to reach out and make a difference. The population highest on our list and dear to our heart is at risk youth. After all, we were there and know the dangers and challenges for that group. One could say that we are the experts! In 2002 a subgroup of our organization, Creepin Death, put out a booklet which was a Youth Outreach Program. Along the way, it was placed in the hands of youth leaders, among others, the Selma group Century 21. We are in the process of reediting the booklet.

Weekly Report from the Board Meeting at Holman Prison 3.23.16

We dislike having to begin with a piece of negative news but a couple of days ago we learned that the U.S. Supreme Court won't hear an inmate's claim that Alabama's death sentence law is unconstitutional. It was the first Alabama death penalty appeal to reach the Supreme Court on this issue since Hurst was decided on Jan. 12, and strengthens the position of the Attorney General that our sentencing “scheme” is constitutional. However this will not be the last appeal of its kind!
