Napoleon was 17 at the time of the crime and sentencing. The United States, and Texas specifically, continues to execute juvenile offenders even though the entire industrialized west has condmened and rescinded the practice. Napoleon won a stay of execution in August of last year, and we need to work for another stay and a commutation. His date has been set for May 28th 2002. The CEDP has a couple of events scheduled, and we encourage everyone to get involved.
