Oklahoma Pardon and Parole Board recommends clemency, commutation of Julius Jones death sentence

The final decision on whether to proceed with a scheduled execution Nov. 18th now lies with Gov. Kevin Stitt

Justice

TULSA — A clemency hearing Monday for Oklahoma death row inmate Julius Jones has resulted in a recommendation of clemency, and commutation of his death sentence.

The board had voted 3-1 in September to recommend commutation, but Gov. Kevin Stitt said at the time he’d wait for the clemency hearing to make a final decision.

Monday, the board again voted 3-1 for both commutation, and clemency.

There has been no word yet from the governor’s office on when he might make the final decision.

Jones is currently scheduled for execution Nov. 18th.

Below, a recent interview with one of Jones’ spiritual advisors, Minister Keith Jossell.
