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

    1. Petition by

      Louisiana Coalition for Alternatives to the Death Penalty

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.
