Patrick Murphy
Execution Pending
Thursday, March 28, 2019 - 6:00pm

Patrick Murphy is scheduled to be executed in Texas on March 28, 2019 and is the second-to-last remaining member of the notorious "Texas 7" group - the name given to the seven men who organized the largest prison breakout in the history of Texas in 2000.

Mr. Murphy was sentenced to death for the murder of Officer Aubrey Hawkins - who was gunned down during an attempted robbery the "Texas 7" committed soon after escaping prison - even though Mr. Murphy was on the opposite side of the building when Officer Hawkins was killed and there is no evidence to suggest he pulled the trigger. 

Write the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles to ask for clemency for Mr. Murphy. Personalize this one-click letter to advocate on his behalf.

In Texas, the Governor MUST have the recommendation of clemency from a board or advisory group.
