At 4 pm today, Julius Jones will be executed unless Governor Kevin Stitt commutes his sentence. Jones insists he is innocent. The state parole board voted 3-1 to commute his sentence to life in prison.

Our friend John Thompson, historian and former teacher, was Jones’ teacher. He strongly believes he is innocent.

Whether guilty or innocent, Jones’ faces either death or life in prison.

Governor Stitt will decide whether he is pro-life or pro-death.
