Do Not Execute Christopher Emmett!

The state of Virginia should not execute Christopher Emmett for the April 2001 murder of Christopher Langley. Emmett claims ineffective assistance of counsel, since his trial counsel never presented his mental health history to the jury. The Virginia Supreme Court unanimously wrote, ""it is clear that [Emmett's] trial counsel was ineffective."
ACT NOW by contacting Gov. Tim Kaine requesting that he stop the execution of Christopher Emmett!

Do Not Execute Michael Lambert!

On June 15, Indiana is set to execute Michael Lambert for the December 1990 murder of Officer Gregg Winters. The jury may have been exposed improperly to victim impact evidence, and the defense did no present a fully mental history of Lambert during their mitigation argument. Currently, Lambert is a party in a federal lawsuit challenging the legality of the state's lethal injection protocol.
ACT NOW by contacting Gov. Mitch Daniels requesting that Michael Lambert's execution be halted!
