Governor Jindal and the Louisiana Board of Pardons and Parole: Please commute Chris Sepulvado's death sentence to life without parole.

Chris Sepulvado's execution on February 13, 2013 would mark the first involuntary execution in Louisiana in over a decade. Mr. Sepulvado has brain damage and is in poor health, and at the age of 69 would be the oldest man ever executed by the State of Louisiana. He is a model prisoner and has consistently expressed remorse for his crime. He has a deep faith in God and was chosen by the prison to be a spiritual guide to other inmates. Please help us prevent his execution.
