Doyle Hamm Pleads for Mercy with Governor of Alabama Kay Ivey


On February 6, 2018, counsel for Doyle Hamm respectfully urged the Governor of Alabama, Kay Ivey, to grant mercy in Doyle’s case and stop his execution by lethal intravenous injection. “I urge you to consider exercising your clemency authority and to grant Doyle Hamm a commutation. Clemency is meant to prevent unjust executions,” counsel wrote. “These extraordinary circumstances, which would make executing Doyle Hamm potentially inhumane and unconstitutional, unfortunately pose such a risk. In light of the cancer that Doyle Hamm already faces, as well as the high risk of a gruesome execution, I seek your mercy on Doyle Hamm’s behalf.” The full letter is here:
