The execution of Carlton Gary, convicted as the so-called "Columbus stocking strangler," has been scheduled for Wednesday, Dec. 16, 2009 -- despite new evidence that may prove his innocence.  On Friday, Dec. 4, Mr. Gary's attorney discovered physical evidence suitable for DNA testing, against repeated claims from the state that no such evidence existed.  Even though DNA testing could prove Mr. Gary innocent, the state has scheduled to go ahead with execution.  You can take action to stop the execution by sending a letter to the Parole Board and Rainbow Medical Associates, the medical group that assists with executions, urging them not to go forward!  Click here for more information on how you can take action.
