- Richard Glossip has been sentenced to death in Oklahoma
- Sister Helen Prejean: I am convinced he is innocent
Sister Helen Prejean ministers to prisoners on death row. The views expressed are her own.
(CNN)The Oklahoma citizens who sentenced Richard Glossip to die are just like you and me -- ordinary folk. As fact finders, they are supposed to receive all the information they need to make an informed judgment. So if facts are falsified or withheld, crucial evidence goes missing or key witnesses lie, the jury's decision will inevitably be skewed. They can only work with what they're given. Unfortunately for Richard Glossip, what the jury did not know could mean an innocent man is executed later this month.
