Save Rudy Medrano from Death Row
This petition is designed to bring awareness to the case of Rudy Medrano who is on Texas Death Row. Rudy was sentenced to death under the Law of Parties. Texas is the only state that sentences people to death under this law. Rudy was never at the crime scene. Rudy did not conspire to kill anyone, and had no knowledge that a murder would occur. Under the Law of Parties, juries can convict and sentence people to death based on the fact that the defendant should have anticipated that a crime would occur. Rudy could not have anticipated that murder would occur because he was not involved in the conspiracy to commit the crime and was never at the crime scene.Rudy was unfairly sentenced to death in Texas. The petition will be given to the Texas Board of Pardons and Parole and Governor Rick Perry in an attempt to save Rudy's life.
