“I was employed at a state corrections facility. When I got charged with Felonious Assault and Kidnapping, my job put me on unpaid leave. Greg Robey fought hard for me and the State agreed to dismiss all the felony charges against me. I am now back on the job because of the hard work of Mr. Robey.” -T.J., Cleveland, Ohio
Several high-ranking Ohio officials have called for a comprehensive review of all death penalty cases in the state, and possibly a moratorium on executions while the review is being carried out. They are urging the state to convene an independent task force to examine the cases of inmates on death row in light of recent advances in DNA technology. Over the past several years, Ohio is second to only Texas in the number of executions carried out.
