Hearing Held on Bill to End Death Penalty in Law of Parties Cases

Terri been, sister of Jeff Wood, testified at the meeting of the House Committee on Criminal Jurisprudence on April 15, 2019 in favor of Rep. Dutton’s bill to prohibit the death penalty in law of parties cases, such as Jeff Wood’s case. The hearing was scheduled for 2pm, but they did not get to the bill on law of parties until about 9:30, so we waited all day to testify. Contact members of the committee and urge them to vote in favor of the bill.

Also testifying was Elsa Alcala, formerly a Republican judge on the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals, the highest criminal court in Texas.
