“Hi, my name is ______, and I am a Georgia voter from ______. I am writing to ask you to urge your parole board to grant clemency for Brian Terrell. Mr. Terrell is scheduled to be executed on December 8 and I am deeply troubled that Georgia might proceed with this execution given the real possibility of Mr. Terrell’s innocence. It has been repeatedly demonstrated that our criminal justice system is not devoid of error and we now know that 155 individuals have been released from death rows across the United States, since 1976. Again, please urge your parole board to grant Brian Terrell clemency. Thank you.
