Stop the Execution of James Coddington in Oklahoma

Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt & the Pardon and Parole Board

James Coddington is scheduled for execution in Oklahoma on March 10, 2022 for the 1997 murder of Albert Troy Hale.

In scheduling executions such as this, Oklahoma makes itself an outlier in its use of the death penalty. The majority of other states are on a downward trend of executions, and increasingly, states are abolishing the practice altogether, including the southern state of Virginia, which repealed its death penalty law in 2021.

Furthermore, the continued failure of Oklahoma's lethal injection protocol and the resulting "botched" executions are of grave concern.

Please sign this petition asking the Governor and the Pardon and Parole Board to make sure Coddington does not face execution and to seek a path to clemency in the case.

We are writing to you regarding James Coddington, who is scheduled for execution in Oklahoma on March 10, 2022 for the 1997 murder of Albert Troy Hale.

In scheduling executions such as this, Oklahoma makes itself an outlier in its use of the death penalty. The majority of other states are on a downward trend of executions, and increasingly, states are abolishing the practice altogether, including the southern state of Virginia, which repealed its death penalty law in 2021.

Furthermore, the continued failure of Oklahoma's lethal injection protocol and the resulting "botched" executions are of grave concern.

We, the undersigned, ask that you do everything within your power to ensure Coddington does not face execution and to seek a path to clemency in the case.

Thank you for time and attention to this urgent and serious matter.
