Delaware Execution Scheduled for Survivor of Childhood Sexual Abuse

National Survivors Advocates Coalition

NSAC News calls your attention today to a Friday, January 20, 2012 State of Delaware scheduled execution of Robert Gattis, who is a survivor of childhood sexual abuse, and your consideration in signing a petition for clemency to life in prison without parole.

We are printing, in its entirety, Sister Maureen Turlish’s letter to Delaware Governor Jack Markell and the Delaware Board of Pardons regarding a request for computation of the death sentence to life in prison without the possibility of parole. An edited version of the letter appeared as an OP-ED in the Delaware News Journal on Friday 1/13/12.

At the bottom of the letter is the website where the petition for clemency may be signed.
