Rep Jeff Leach Speaks on Bill to End Death Penalty in Law of Parties Cases

Texas State Rep Jeff Leach, a Republican, in this video makes a persuasive argument for his bill to end the death penalty in law of parties cases at the hearing of the Texas House Committee on Criminal Jurisprudence on April 6, 2021. He also made it clear that it is his legislative intent that the bill, if passed, would result in removing people like Jeff Wood who are already on death row because of the law of parties. His remarks should convince enough Republicans to support the bill that it could pass the committee and the entire House. He would not be testifying and would not have filed his bill if family members like Terri Been, Jeff Wood’s sister, and other people had not contacted him in 2016 about Jeff’s case to ask him to sign a clemency letter.
