Terry is deeply remorseful for his actions. There are no excuses or justifications for the crimes he committed. Nonetheless, the abuse he suffered provides significant insight into the betrayed, traumatized, and impaired thinking that led him to commit-

- Terry suffered horrific sexual and physical abuse during his childhood and no one intervened to get him help when he was boy;

- The jury did not know about his history of childhood sexual abuse and trauma;

- The jury did not know that the men he killed were his abusers;

- Terry was only 18 years old at the time of the crime for which he was sentenced to death and the jury did not know about the psychological impact of sexual abuse on someone as young as Terry;

- Jurors did not know that he would never be eligible for parole;

- Jurors have stated that they would not have voted for death if they had known about his sexual abuse and ineligibility for parole; and

- The victimís widow does not want Terry executed for her husbandís killing.
Was not a fair trial. Also, I don't believe in the death penalty. I know you will sign or not according to your own heart. Just did not want to leave this issue to the wind.

It seems to me that, with so much necessary information being with-held, this verdict should be overturned--not that I know anything about law, it just seems extremely unfair.
Gladly signed and shared the petition.
Thanks Nancy.

This man has suffered enough and the verdict should be overturned if this man is executed than the justive system is no good and people will no longer have any faith in the legal system
