USA (Florida)Joseph SPAZIANO
Joseph Spaziano, who was scheduled to be executed in Florida on 21 September,
has received a stay of execution. The Florida Supreme Court ordered an
evidentiary hearing on the question of Spaziano's innocence to take place before
his execution. However, the attorney representing Spaziano was forced to step
down from the case due to the withdrawal of federal funding for the death penalty
law centre which employed him. The hearing has now been rescheduled for
mid-November to allow time for a new attorney to represent Spaziano to be found.
No further action is requested at present. Thank you to all those who sent
appeals.
