DC Sniper John Allen Muhammad, who apparently didn’t need a jihad to go around killing Americans, is slated for execution in November.
Not so fast, says his Defense Attorney, we plan to ask for clemency from the Governor!!
An attorney for convicted Washington-area sniper John Allen Muhammad, who is scheduled to be executed November 10, will seek clemency from Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine on October 22.
Jonathan Sheldon said he will also file an appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court on November 2. He posted the dates Tuesday on his law firm’s Web site.
Really? I can only wonder as to the grounds for such a statement. Should be fun.
To his credit, The Guv’nah ain’t having it…
Kaine told CNN affiliate WTOP Radio during its “Ask the Governor” program last month that he couldn’t imagine a circumstance under which he would grant clemency.
“I know of nothing in this case that would suggest that there is any credible claim of innocence or that there was anything procedurally wrong with the prosecution,” Kaine said.
Good on ya.
