Help Stop the First Execution of 2019

Warren “Keith” Henness is scheduled to be executed Feb. 13– the first of 7 executions slated for this year in Ohio. Last Thursday, the Ohio Parole Board considered the following during his clemency hearing: Keith’s trial lawyers spent very little time on his case, doubt remains surrounding his guilt, and his positive prison record, among other substantial factors

Despite the parole board’s forthcoming recommendation, Governor DeWine has the ultimate ability to grant Keith clemency.  Call the Governor at 614-466-3555 and urge him not to execute Keith Henness. This will be DeWine’s first opportunity to grant clemency as governor, and we must show him that we are paying attention to this decision.
