URGENT ACTION NEEDED: It has been three and a half years since the botched execution of Dennis McGuire took place in Ohio on January 16, 2014. Since that time, three innocent men have been released from death row in Ohio after their wrongful convictions were finally exposed. Ohio has freed a total of nine innocent men from death row, but we have no idea how many more still sit on death row. One estimate by the National Academy of Sciences suggests that as many as 4% of death row prisoners could be innocent.

Despite these unsettling developments, Ohio has announced 27 new execution dates through 2021, beginning with Ronald Phillips on July 26, 2017. With the state’s history of wrongful convictions and botched executions, this rush to resume executions is risky, unnecessary, and it is bad for business. Please add your name to our open letter telling Gov. Kasich to stop these executions.

Kevin Werner, executive director of Ohioans to Stop Executions, said the bill does well to recognize that people with severe mental illnesses shouldn’t be executed. It doesn’t take anything away from prosecutors, he said, instead allowing for more options and convictions.

“We think this is an appropriate and needed change to Ohio’s Revised Code,” Werner said. “This is the direction our society is moving in.”
