Emergency Appeal Filed To Stop Rhoades Execution

The attorneys for condemned Idaho inmate Paul Ezra Rhoades have filed an emergency appeal to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court in hopes of staving off the execution set for Friday morning. In a 33-page brief to the court, Oliver Loewy and the other attorneys with the Federal Defenders of Idaho reiterated Rhoades' contention that Idaho's new lethal injection protocol is likely to be botched, causing him to suffer excruciating pain in violation of the 8th Amendment. Idaho Department of Correction director Brent Reinke says he's confident Idaho will carry out the task without any cruel or unusual punishment to Rhodes.  As the clock ticks closer to Friday, Reinke says the other death row inmates are also watching and waiting. The ACLU of Idaho will be among those protesting the execution Friday morning.The organization is asking that others who are against the death penalty join them. They will gather at the prison site at 6:45 a.m. Friday.
