J4H | Justice 4 Hank Skinner

The Case of Hank Skinner

If you believe the justice system weighs both inculpatory and exculpatory evidence before sending a person to death row, think again! 

Accused of a triple homicide that occurred in the home he shared with his girlfriend on New Year’s Eve 1993 in Texas, Hank Skinner was sentenced to death in March 1995 and has been sitting on death row since then.

His case is a compelling example of a flawed and corrupted system.

The Case section gives you an accessible overview of the facts and the evidence of his innocence, and the Legal section gives you access to legal material outlining facts and evidence as introduced in the courts as well as courts’ decisions, expert reports and testimonies.

Don’t take our word for it, read on and help us free Hank from this neverending nightmare, thank you!
