ALABAMA, USA: Stop Execution in Alabama - URGENT ACTION

Alabama, Amnesty International, 1-13-2022

Matthew Reeves, 18 years old at the time of the crime and now 43, is facing execution in Alabama on January 27, 2022. 

His death sentence has been upheld despite compelling claims that he has an intellectual disability and that his trial lawyers failed him when they did not retain an expert to present such evidence. 

Even without the presentation of this key mitigation evidence at trial, only 10 of 12 jurors voted for death. Amnesty International calls on Governor Ivey to commute the death sentence.
