J4H | Justice 4 Hank Skinner

News March 13, 2019

Hank’s case was returned to the Court of Criminal Appeals in Austin last spring and the decision is still pending. Recently the Court communicated with both parties to inform them that no hearing would be held as the court will work with the existing written arguments. A decision should be released within the next 6 months, although there is no mandatory deadline.

The wait continues for Hank and life on death row has become unnecessarily more difficult since the change of Senior Warden at the unit. Hank spent the last 6 months in the hole, with a period of time without his essential medications as well as little food which is a dangerous issue for his health.

Justice4Hank will be visiting with him at the end of next week.

During this long waiting period and with the uncertain outcome of his appeal, it is crucial for him to be strong and in good health. He is working with his defense team in order to be ready on the legal front.
