Gov. Rick Scott has ordered Jose Jimenez to be killed by the “People of the State of Florida” on Thursday, December 13, 2018 at 6pm. The Stay of his previous execution date was lifted by the Florida Supreme Court. Jimenez was convicted of killing Phyllis Minas in 1994. This would be the 28th prisoner killing ordered by Gov. Scott – a new record for a Florida governor.
On November 5th, there was yet another exoneration of an innocent person sent to Florida’s Death Row. There are now a national record 28 innocent people sentenced to Death and later exonerated despite many years of the state’s best efforts to execute them. Since Florida executions re-started in the 1970’s, 96 people have been executed. For nearly every 3 executions, an innocent person on Death Row has been exonerated. Take Action!
Florida’s hyper-expensive, catastrophically failed death penalty program is broken beyond repair and completely unnecessary for public safety. It’s time to end the needless state-sponsored killing of well-secured captive prisoners.
