NEW FLORIDA DEATH WARRANT
Jerry William Correll
Execution Date: February 26, 2016 at 6:00 pm
Less than 24 hours after the execution of Shane Kormondy, Gov. Scott has ordered the “People of the State of Florida” to kill Jerry Correll on Thursday, February 26 at 6pm ET. Correll was sentenced to death 29 years ago. This would be the 22nd execution of a well-secured, captive prisoner ordered by
Richard Lynn Scott and would break the modern record for executions carried out by a Florida governor. Gov. Scott is just halfway through his term in office.
Please contact Gov. Rick Scott and ask him to suspend ALL executions.

From Floridians for Alternatives to the Death Penalty:
The U.S. Supreme Court agreed on Friday to review Oklahoma’s lethal injection execution procedure.
Florida also uses the same three-drug procedure. It is expected that Florida inmates facing execution will appeal for a stay while the process is under review. The Supreme Court will hear the case in April and will likely issue a decision in June. Read the Reuters story here.
