Let Max die at home
It’s bad enough that the state of Texas put Max Soffar, an innocent man, on death row with a false confession.
Now that Max has served nearly 34 years in prison for a crime he did not commit, he recently found out he has terminal liver cancer. He only has a few months left to live, and he won’t be alive long enough to be executed.
Even former Texas Governor Mark White, who oversaw 19 executions during his time in office, is urging current Governor Rick Perry to give Max clemency. In an impassioned plea, he says, “there isn’t a shred of evidence from the crime scene to corroborate Max’s supposed confession,” a conviction based on “a series of gross improprieties.”
It’s too late for justice for Max, but it’s not too late to do the right thing. All Max wants is to die at home, with his wife Anita and the support of his family and friends. There’s not enough time for Max to appeal his case. Don’t let an innocent man die behind bars.
Call on Texas Governor Perry to show mercy and grant Max clemency so he can spend his remaining time at home.
