STOP THE EXECUTION OF ALFRED BOURGEOIS
Mr. Bourgeois is intellectually disabled and constitutionally ineligible for the death penalty. The jury that sentenced Mr. Bourgeois to death never learned that he was intellectually disabled because his trial lawyers did not present the evidence that was available to them.
When the performance of his trial lawyers was later challenged on appeal, the same judge who appointed those ineffective lawyers denied relief using outdated and unscientific standards and stereotypes about the intellectually disabled that have now been thoroughly rejected by the scientific community and the U.S. Supreme Court. No court has ever reviewed the evidence of Mr. Bourgeois' intellectual disability using proper scientific standards.
Catholic Mobilizing Network invites you to send a message to President Donald Trump and Attorney General William Barr urging them to stop the execution of Alfred Bourgeois.
Thank you for your witness.
