Save Jeff Wood From the Executioner

Dear Governor Abbott and Distinguished members of the Texas Board of Pardons and Parole,

We the undersigned are family members, friends, and supporters of Jeffrey Lee Wood.  We are petitioning you in an effort to save Jeff from unjustly being put to death by the state of Texas for a murder he did not commit!  Jeff was charged under the controversial Law of Parties, and was not the shooter in this crime, nor was he even in the building when the shooting took place.  This unjust law states that even though a co-defendant may NOT have participated in the crime or caused a death, he can still face the death penalty. It also states that he should have "anticipated" the crime; which was not possible in this case as Jeff had no knowledge that a robbery would even be taking place that day, let alone a murder. 

The actual shooter in this case, Daniel Reneau, has already been executed by the state of Texas.

Further, (in addition to the fact that Jeff did not commit, nor plan the murder) there were several errors made at Jeff's trial, and as a direct result of these errors and prosecutorial misconduct Jeff did not receive the fair trial he was entitled to. 

Jeff also has mental and learning disabilities, dating back to his childhood, that allowed him to be taken advantage of not only by the shooter, but by the prosecution in this case as well.  It is also a FACT that the jury never heard this or any other mitigating evidence that was readily available.

The fact that Wood's jury did not hear this important evidence has not been corrected by the courts, and executive clemency exists to intervene where the courts cannot. Therefore we implore you to demonstrate your respect for justice and human life by doing everything in your power to not only commute the death sentence of Jeffrey Wood, but to release him with time served as he has served over 13 years for a murder he did NOT commit.

We pray to Jehovah God that you show compassion!  We also thank you for your time and attention to this very serious matter.

Dear Governor Abbott and Distinguished members of the Texas Board of Pardons and Parole,





We the undersigned are family members, friends, and supporters of Jeffrey Lee Wood.  We are petitioning you in an effort to save Jeff from unjustly being put to death by the state of Texas for a murder he did not commit!  Jeff was charged with Capital Murder under the controversial Law of Parties, yet he never killed anyone, nor did he conspire to kill anyone.  This unjust law states that even though a co-defendant may NOT have participated in the crime or caused a death, he can still face the death penalty. It also states that he should have "anticipated" the crime; which was not possible in this case as Jeff had no knowledge that a robbery would even be taking place that day, let alone a murder. 


The actual shooter in this case, Daniel Reneau, has already been executed by the state of Texas.

Further, (in addition to the fact that Jeff did not commit, nor plan the murder) there were several errors made at Jeff's trial, and as a direct result of these errors and prosecutorial misconduct Jeff did not receive the fair trial he was entitled to. 

Jeff also has mental and learning disabilities (diagnosed by multiple doctors), dating back to his childhood, that allowed him to be taken advantage of not only by the shooter, but by the prosecution in this case as well.  Further, it is a fact that the jury never heard this or any other mitigating evidence that was readily available; which erred them into coming to a sentence of death for Mr. Wood.


The fact that Wood%u2019s jury did not hear this important evidence has not been corrected by the courts, and executive clemency exists to intervene where the courts cannot. Therefore we implore you to demonstrate your respect for justice and human life by doing everything in your power to not only commute the death sentence of Jeffrey Wood, but to release him with time served as he has served over 13 years for a murder he did NOT commit.


We pray to Jehovah God that you show compassion!  We also thank you for your time and attention to this very serious matter.
