Cory Johnson is set to be executed on January 14, 6 days before the new Administration takes over. Not only is an execution this close to an Inauguration date unheard of, but this execution is completely unjust. Johnson has an intellectual disability, meaning it is illegal to execute him federal law and pursuant to the Supreme Court’s decision in Atkins v Virginia.
Why is this important?
Johnson is the only mentally disabled prisoner set to be executed who has not been able to present evidence of his disability. The White House MUST halt his execution to thoroughly consider Johnson’s condition.
