John Erroll Ferguson’s Appeal Rejected By Circuit Court

The highly-criticized execution of John Erroll Ferguson could be back on after the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals rejected his appeal.

From the Associated Press:

The 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled today that although Ferguson suffers from mental illness, he has a rational understanding of what he did and why he is scheduled for execution. That was the same conclusion reached earlier by the Florida Supreme Court.

Ferguson’s case made national news when he came within hours of execution last October. Read more at the links below.
