FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Texas Court of Criminal Appeals Stays Execution of Clinton Young

 

3:15 PM UPDATES BELOW

 

The Texas Court of Criminal Appeals has today stayed the execution of Clinton Young which had been set for the 26th of October.

The CCA issued an order remanding Mr. Young’s case to the trial court. The order centred around ‘false and misleading testimony [that] was introduced at his trial’ which has lead to a due process violation regarding Mr. Young. The reasons cited for the stay of execution were due to ‘last minute Application for Writ of Habeas Corpus filed by the Federal Public Defender’s Office for the Central District of California.’ The full statement from The Federal Public Defender website is listed below.

Whilst news of Mr. Young’s stay of execution is welcomed, his long term future regarding the death penalty is far from certain.

Whilst the CCA has asked the trial court to resolve the due process violation against Mr. Young it did only contend that the  ‘Applicant has only met the requirements of Article 11.071 § 5 regarding his first allegation, in which he contends that false or misleading testimony was introduced at trial’.

New evidence relating to Dr Christopher Palenik’s forensic findings have perhaps not been found to meet these requirements? Whilst this is not clear, Mr. Page’s ever changing testimony has been brought into question by the CCA. All eyes will now be on the trial court in question to see how it  responds to the CCA’s demands. The time frame relating to when the trial court will hear Mr. Young’s case again is not yet known but we will be sure to keep the reading public informed of its intentions when they are indeed known to us.

For today though, we are just relieved that Mr. Young has been extended a potential olive branch.

    De Texas Court of Criminal Appeals heeft vandaag de uitvoering van Clinton Young, die had vastgesteld voor 26 oktober bleef.
    De CCA afgegeven een order remanding Mr. Youngs zaak naar de rechtbank. De volgorde die is gecentreerd rond ‘valse en misleidende getuigenis, [dat] werd geïntroduceerd tijdens zijn proces’ die geleid tot een schending van de rechtsgang met betrekking tot Mr Young heeft. De redenen aangehaald voor de schorsing van de uitvoering waren te wijten aan ‘last minute toepassing voor dagvaarding van Habeas Corpus ingediend door de federale openbare verdediger van Office voor de centrale wijk van Californië.’ Hieronder vindt u de volledige verklaring van de federale openbare verdediger website.

    Nieuws van Mr. Youngs uitstel van executie wordt toegejuicht, is zijn lange termijn toekomst met betrekking tot de doodstraf verre van zeker.
    Terwijl de CCA heeft de rechtbank op te lossen van de schending van de rechtsgang tegen Mr. Young gevraagd het die alleen streden de ‘ aanvrager heeft alleen voldaan aan de eisen van artikel 11.071, § 5, met betrekking tot zijn eerste bewering, waarin hij dat valse of misleidende betoogt getuigenis werd geïntroduceerd op proef ‘.
    Nieuw bewijsmateriaal met betrekking tot Dr Christopher Palenik van forensische bevindingen misschien niet gevonden aan deze vereisten voldoen? Hoewel dit niet duidelijk, heeft Mr. Page de steeds wisselende getuigenis gebracht vraag door de CCA. Alle ogen zullen nu op de rechtbank in kwestie om te zien hoe het reageert op de eisen van de CCA. Het tijdschema met betrekking tot wanneer de rechtbank Mr. Youngs zaak opnieuw zal behandelen is nog niet bekend, maar wij zullen zeker om te houden van de lezing publiek op de hoogte van zijn bedoelingen wanneer ze zijn inderdaad bij ons bekend.
    Voor vandaag zijn we echter net opgelucht dat Mr Young is uitgebreid tot een potentiële olijftak.
