Richard Glossip Granted Two-Week Stay of Execution

2015-09-17T02:47:00-07:00

"Democracy Now!" airs weekdays at 9 a.m. PT on KCET.

An Oklahoma appeals court granted death row prisoner Richard Glossip a last-minute stay of execution on Wednesday only hours before he was slated to die. The decision was a response to an emergency request filed by his lawyers Tuesday afternoon. The decision came down at 11:30 a.m. -- only three-and-a-half hours before his scheduled execution by lethal injection. Glossip's new execution date is September 30. "Democracy Now!" speaks to Don Knight, one of the pro bono attorneys representing death row inmate Richard Glossip. Also with "Democracy Now!" is Sister Helen Prejean, one of the world's most well-known anti-death-penalty activists. As a Catholic nun, she began her prison ministry over 30 years ago. She is the author of the best-selling book, "Dead Man Walking: An Eyewitness Account of the Death Penalty."
