HB 81 - Exempt mentally ill from death penalty

03 Dec 2018 11:41 AM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

Next week the Ohio House Judiciary Committee is scheduled to vote on H.B. 81 which exempts individuals who were seriously mentally ill at the time of their crime from the death penalty.  Anything you can do to contact your legislators in the House and urge them to vote yes would be greatly appreciated!  All members of OCA and their peers/coworkers/staff are encouraged to take action.
