Good News

An Oklahoma appeals court has granted Richard Glossip a two-week stay of execution.  The new execution date is set for September 30.

From the news reports, it seems that the court will be considering evidence that Glossip was “framed.”  Hopefully this actually means that the court will reconsider the reliability of Justin Sneed’s testimony, since that testimony is the genuinely controversial part of the case.

For more updates, check into any number of Glossip support sites:  Sister Helen’s, richardeglossip.com, the Facebook group, etc..
