Juror Who Sentenced Richard Glossip Speaks Out

A juror who sentenced Richard Glossip to death is speaking out. 

Glossip is set to be executed Wednesday afternoon. This juror only wants to be known as "a juror from Richard Glossip's murder trial." The juror felt he should speak now because of all this recent attention on Glossip.

The juror wants people to know what's set to happen Wednesday is not sudden for those involved in the case. This is what the juror had to say, "This has been 17 years for us, 17 years for the Van Treese Family. We saw Glossip as Charles Manson and as a juror for the state we wanted to protect Oklahomans."

Glossip has been found guilty twice for hiring Justin Sneed to murder Barry Van Treese in 1997, which is why the juror sees Glossip as Manson because of his ability to influence someone to kill.

Glossip though continues his innocence and continues to gain support. Not only does he have celebrities asking Governor Fallin for a stay of execution, Senator Tom Coburn and former OU coach Barry Switzer have put their names on a letter asking the Governor for a stay.

Glossip's attorneys plan to hold a press conference at 10:00 a.m. Monday. The attorneys claim they have new evidence that proves Glossip's innocence, but none of that evidence has been filed in court.
