You signed SB122 into law on June 17, 2011. This bill is intended to ensure that if DNA evidence is available to prove someone's innocence, it can and will be tested. This revised post-conviction DNA law was authored and sponsored by legislators who strongly supported the bill for people like Hank Skinner who is set for execution on November 9, 2011.
We urge you to uphold the very standards you are promoting as part of a very much needed criminal justice reform and we ask you to demand the withdrawal of the execution warrant and that DNA testing be granted to Mr. Skinner in the best possible time. We trust you to do the right thing for justice and for the truth in Texas, before it is too late.
