Troy Davis

Troy Anthony Davis was executed by the state of Georgia on September 21, 2011.  He was pronounced dead at 11:08pm.

Troy Anthony Davis has been on Georgia's death row for over 18 years, despite a compelling case for innocence.  Since Davis' conviction, the evidence against him has fallen apart.  No physical evidence; no murder weapon; seven of the nine witnesses have recanted or contradicted their testimony, many alleging police coercion.  Here you can learn about the case, find other resources, and learn how to take action to prevent the execution of a man who may be innocent.
