William T. Montgomery: #TooMuchDoubt?

First Unitarian Church of Toledo

3205 Glendale Ave, Toledo OH 43614

Featuring:

  • Welcome by Rev. Dr. TK Barger
  • The Gathering: a brief award-winning documentary film about Witness to Innocence and its members, all of whom are exonerated death row survivors
  • Joe D’Ambrosio, who spent 22 years on Ohio’s death row for a crime he did not commit
  • Joseph Moran, Toledoans for Prison Awareness
  • Rev. Dr. Jack Sullivan, Chairman, Ohioans to Stop Executions and the brother of an Ohio victim of homicide
  • Kevin Werner, Executive Director, Ohioans to Stop Executions.

Background:

Ohio’s death penalty system is so flawed that in 2011, the Republican, pro-death penalty chief justice of the Ohio Supreme Court appointed a task force to recommend ways to fix it. The experts finished their work in 2014 with 56 recommendations for ways to make the system more fair and accurate. Most of those recommendations have not been enacted, yet executions continue. There are currently over 25 executions scheduled from now until 2022.

The next person to be exexuted is William T. Montgomery, who has been on Ohio’s death row for more than 31 years for the murders of Debra Ogle and Cynthia Tincher. Evidence found years after the trial calls into questions about Montgomery’s innocence. This discussion will cover the broader issue and will also explore the numerous concerns raising #TooMuchDoubt in Montgomery’s case.
