Save Jeff Wood from Texas Execution Under Law of Parties

To be delivered to David G. Gutiérrez, Chair, Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles and Governor Greg Abbott

Petition Statement

We are petitioning to save Jeff Wood from unjustly being put to death by the state of Texas on August 24, 2016 for a murder he did not commit. Jeff was charged under the controversial Law of Parties. He was not the shooter in this crime, nor was he even in the building when the shooting took place. This unjust law states that even though a co-defendant may not have killed anyone, he can still face the death penalty, because of the actions of another person.

The actual shooter in this case, Daniel Reneau, has already been executed by the state of Texas.
There are currently 337 signatures. NEW goal - We need 400 signatures!

Petition Background

Jeff Wood is scheduled for execution on August 24, 2016. We need to persuade the Texas governor and members of the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles to commute the death sentence to a term in prison. I have known Jeff's family for several years. His sister Terri Been is leading the effort to #savejeffwood. She has testified to the Texas Legislature to ban executions under the Law of Parties and spoken out many times to save her brother from an unjust execution.
