Scheduled Execution of Albert Greenwood Brown Reset for September 30

SACRAMENTO – The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) has rescheduled the execution of Albert Greenwood Brown Jr. following a temporary reprieve issued today by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to allow condemned inmate Brown to exhaust all appeals under the law.

This reprieve, which expires at 11:59 p.m. Sept. 29, 2010, was issued to allow the California Supreme Court time to review lower court decisions in the various legal challenges surrounding the scheduled execution of inmate Brown. The scheduled execution has been rescheduled for 9 p.m., Sept. 30, 2010 at San Quentin State Prison.

Please see “Statement of Decision” issued by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger for more information.
