NEWS BRIEF — Oklahoma Pardon and Parole Board Advances Julius Jones’ Commutation Application

Julius Jones (pic­tured) will receive a stage two” com­mu­ta­tion hear­ing after the Oklahoma Pardon and Parole Board vot­ed 3 – 1 to advance his com­mu­ta­tion appli­ca­tion past the ini­tial sum­ma­ry review stage. Jones main­tains his inno­cence in the 1999 mur­der of Paul Howell, for which he was sen­tenced to death in 2002. The board’s March 8 vote means that Jones will receive a more in-depth review of his case for clemen­cy and affords him the oppor­tu­ni­ty to present wit­ness­es and speak to the board mem­bers directly.
