Stop the execution of Billy Joe Wardlow
Billy Joe Wardlow is scheduled to be executed on July 8, 2020 for a crime he committed 27 years ago when he was only 18 years old. The Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles has refused to commute his sentence, despite several jurors naming their regret over sentencing Billy to death.
Texas has seen a recent surge in COVID-19 cases amid the global pandemic, but the state is still planning to move forward with the execution this Wednesday. Urge Texas Governor Greg Abbott to grant a 30-day stay of execution.
