The Campaign to End the Death Penalty is hosting a happy hour for Rodney Reed tomorrow, Monday, April 23, at 7:00pm at Double Dave’s, on Duval near the intersection of Duval and San Jacinto on the north side of the UT campus.
Rodney Reed is an innocent man on Texas’ death row. He was wrongly convicted in Bastrop County of the 1996 murder of Stacey Stites. The pattern of police and prosecutorial misconduct,existing physical evidence not heard at trial, and the overall racist tone of Rodney’s trial cast strong doubt on Rodney’s guilt. CEDP is working together right now with Rodney’s family, Texas death penalty abolition groups, and other community organizations to call for a new trial for Rodney Reed at which all the evidence of his innocence can be presented. You can learn more and sign a petition calling for a new trial at www.freerodneyreed.org.
Roderick Reed, one of Rodney’s brothers, and Bryce Benjet, one of Rodney’s attorneys, will be there to discuss the case, Rodney’s innocence, and how the public can help win justice for Rodney Reed. Please join us for this important, informative, and fun event! Beer, pizza, and other refreshments will be available.
