APPLICATIONS FOR REPRIEVE OF EXECUTION AND COMMUTATION TO LIFE IN PRISON IN CAPITAL CASES

In capital cases, the applications for commutation of sentence to life in prison and for a reprieve of execution must be received at least 21 days prior to the scheduled execution date. If the Board recommends clemency in a capital case, the governor may grant commutation or reprieve. The governor may also grant a one-time 30-day reprieve of execution without a recommendation from the Board.
