Stanley “Tookie” Williams Watch: Ninth Circuit Rejects Last Minute Appeal

UPDATE:

Matt Drudge is reporting that California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has DENIED the clemency petition.

Now, it is up to the United States Supreme court.

The Governor’s statement:

“Clemency cases are always difficult and this one is no exception. After studying the evidence, searching the history, listening to the arguments and wrestling with the profound consequences, I could find no justification for granting clemency. The facts do not justify overturning the jury’s verdict or the decisions of the courts in this case.”

Reuters has Court rejects appeal before Calif. execution

A U.S. federal appeals court rejected a last-minute appeal on Monday to reconsider the evidence in the case of Stanley Tookie Williams, the former Crips gang leader slated to be executed at 12:01 a.m.(3:01 a.m. EDT/0801 GMT) on Tuesday.

The U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, which in February declined to reconsider the death penalty verdict against the high-profile inmate, rejected a renewed appeal filed on Sunday.

Also on Sunday the California Supreme Court rejected a similar appeal. Williams’ lawyers say they will also appeal on Monday to the U.S. Supreme Court, which has also declined to reopen the case in the past.

Barring unexpected court intervention, the last chance to stop the execution by lethal injection would be clemency from California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Stay tuned…. now it is up to the United States Supreme Court and the Governor……
