Does anyone have any thoughts on Humberto Leal's case? He is a Mexican national convicted of rape & murder and currently scheduled to be executed today. He was not apprised of his right to contact the Mexican Consulate at the time of his arrest and Texas has been asked to stay the execution pending an investigation.
Leal denies the rape and kidnapping charge and says her death was accidental. Mexican authorities said had Leal been allowed to contact the consulate, they would have provided legal assistance. http://www.npr.org/2011/07/07/137666847/texas-urged-to-stop-mexican-nationals-execution
