Commute the Death Sentence of Jerome Henderson sign now

Petition summary and background: The State of Ohio has set December 5, 2006 as an execution date for Jerome Henderson. In 1985 Henderson received a death sentence for the murder of 26-year-old Mary Acoff. In July 2003, the district court granted Henderson's petition for a writ of habeas corpus, vacating his death sentence based on improper jury instructions, and remanded to the State court for re-sentencing. In June 2006 a 3-judge panel of the US 6th Circuit denied habeas relief to Henderson. On Monday, October 23, 2006 Henderson received an execution date of December 5, 2006. The murder of Mary Acoff remains an unthinkable tragedy. At the same time, a state-sanctioned killing is not the solution.

Action petitioned for: We, the undersigned, are concerned citizens who urge our governor to act now to commute the death sentence of Jerome Henderson, December 5, 2006.

    During an interval when public recognition of flaws in Ohio's capital case system may contaminate the constitutional foundations to which it allegedly ascribes, all executions - including the execution of Jerome Henderson - should be stayed. Mr. Henderson
