Commute the Death Sentence of Brett Hartmann

      Diane Morretti

      Mesa, AZ

We the undersigned, urge the Governor of the State of Ohio, to commute the death sentence of Brett Hartmann.

Brett was sentenced to death on May 22, 1998 for the murder of Winda Snipes.
Many questions remain unanswered concerning the facts around this case, including phone records that place Brett at home at the time of the crime, untested evidence, and contradictory results where tests have been done.
Brett received poor representation at trial and had little investigation done on his behalf.
Trial lawyers (including his own), judges, and prosecutors involved in the case have all been accused and/ or convicted of wrongdoing in a variety of circumstances since Bretts conviction.

We deeply sympathize with the family and friends of Winda Snipes, but we respectfully offer that another death will neither heal nor resolve this tragedy.

An evil deed is not redeemed by an evil deed of retaliation. Justice is never advanced in the taking of human life. Morality is never upheld by legalized murder. Coretta Scott King

Action petitioned for; We the undersigned, urge the governor of the state of Ohio to act now and commute the death sentence given to Brett Hartmann.

      The death penalty is barbaric! Also, the facts simply do not line up. Do not execute this man!

      It is wrong to ask prison staff to execute a man while there are still substantial doubts about his guilt.

      There is too much controversy about his innocence; give him a life sentence instead, and let him file appeals.
