Jeanette Popp will speak at a gathering of “Democrats Against the Death Penalty” at the Texas Democratic Party State Convention at the Dallas Convention Center in room C156 at 10 AM Friday, June 27. Anyone can come hear her speak, you do not need to be a delegate.
Jeanette Popp is a mother whose daughter was murdered and who opposed the death penalty for her daughter’s killer. Two innocent men, Christopher Ochoa and Richard Danziger, served more than a decade in prison for the murder before being exonerated. The real killer finally confessed and was sentenced to life in prison. Jeanette met with the real killer before his trial and told him that she did not want him to receive the death penalty.
