Information about David Lee Powell


By Nell Warnes - Posted on June 07 2010

After visiting David Powell for the last six years, it is very difficult for me to express myself as his execution approaches.  Many of you have asked for more information about his situation.
Amnesty International has a web page describing the legal circumstances surrounding his case: People can change. Will Texas? After three decades on death row, clemency sought on rehabilitation grounds.
Also Robert Leleux of the Texas Observer has taken this as an opportunity to reflect on his personal feelings and opinions on this case and the death penalty in general.  He is publishing a piece each day starting from June 1 until David's execution on June 15th.  In addition to his thoughts each piece contains a video of those that know David.
