The state Clemency and Pardons Board will consider a petition for clemency for 56-year old Darold Ray Stenson, who is scheduled for execution Wednesday. The Newark Examiner reports that the Washington Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty has filed the petition on his behalf. Stenson, however, is not asking for pardon because he believes to do so could be viewed as an admission of guilt for a double murder. See story here.
