Texas is set to execute Larry Swearingen on 21 August—just over one week.
He’s been behind bars in Texas for nearly two decades. Larry has always maintained his innocence, and several forensic experts support his innocence too.
We don’t have much time. Please send a message now to the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles, urging they call off Larry’s execution.

Larry was convicted only on circumstantial evidence in connection with the murder of a young woman. DNA testing of evidence has failed to find any traces of Larry’s DNA.
Larry’s legal representation was dismal, and lead to his execution being called off in 2009... and again in 2011.

Now, without conclusive evidence, his execution date is set again for 21 August.
