AUSTIN (AP) – Former Gov. Mark White is helping release a new report from the American Bar Association that levies new criticism of the death penalty in Texas.
The report Wednesday will propose reforms in the nation’s most active death penalty state. Eleven inmates have already been executed this year in Texas, and at least seven more are scheduled to die in the coming months.
Anthony Graves spent 18 years on death row before being cleared by DNA evidence. He is expected to join White and former federal prosecutors at the Texas Capitol, where Graves testified to lawmakers earlier this year.
Texas courts have exonerated Graves and 11 other men after juries sentenced them to death row.
