Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg said this morning that she has decided to seek the death penalty against Brandon Montgomery Daniel, who police say fatally shot Austin police officer Jaime Padron earlier this year. “I think it is the right thing to do,” Lehmberg told the American-Statesman. She declined to comment further.
Texas Moratorium Network (TMN) is a non-profit organization with the primary goal of mobilizing statewide support for a moratorium on executions in Texas. Significant death penalty reform in Texas, including a moratorium on executions, is a viable goal if the public is educated on the death penalty system and is encouraged to contact their elected representatives to urge passage of moratorium legislation.
