Support Grows for an Innocent Man on Death Row

Supporters of Ivan Teleguz, an innocent man on Virginia’s Death Row, are speaking out and urging Governor McAuliffe to grant clemency. Among their justifications for stopping Ivan’s impending execution are the doubt about Ivan’s guilt and evidence of Ivan’s innocence that jurors never heard. Over the past several days, the Governor has received letters from a number of Ivan’s supporters, including: Virginia Delegate Marcus B. Simon and Virginia Delegate Patrick Hope; a group of prominent religious leaders representing the Virginia Council of Churches; and 25 notable conservatives and libertarians from across the state.
