Why Sister Helen Prejean Believes Richard Glossip Was Wrongfully Convicted
Richard Glossip was convicted of first-degree murder in 1998 in the beating death of his boss, Barry Van Treese. The conviction that was based largely on the testimony of Justin Sneed, who claimed Glossip had hired him to carry out the murder. In exchange for his testimony, Sneed received life in prison without parole.
Sister Helen Prejean is the spiritual adviser for Glossip, who is scheduled to die by lethal injection on September 16, 2015.
In the video above, Sister Prejean explains why she believes Glossip is innocent and should be granted clemency — a feeling that is echoed by actress Susan Sarandon.
