The Kentucky Supreme Court has informed us that it has not received any response from Gregory Wilson’s lawyers today, nor does it expect to receive any. We remain enjoined by the Franklin Circuit Court from carrying out the execution until further orders of the Court.
There will no vigil in Frankfort. Again thanks to all who have contacted Gov. Steve Beshear. We must continue to press all policy makers, the governor, legislators, elected commonwealth attorneys, to abandon the use of the death penalty. This case clearly points to how broken the system is.
Thanks to all those attorneys working on this and related cases who give defendants the defense they deserve and help this justice system retain credibility.
And no thanks to those who use this system and risk the taking of the life of another to further their own political goals and careers.
