South Carolina Inmate Brad Sigmon Receives Stay Ahead of June 18, 2021

Brad Sigmon, South Carolina

 

Updated: Wednesday, June 16, 2021

The South Carolina Supreme Court has halted the executions of Brad Sigmon and Freddie Owens. Both men were scheduled to be executed by electrocution, as no other execution method is viable in the state. South Carolina does not have drugs to carry out an execution by lethal injection, and the state cannot obtain the drugs in time.  Recently, lawmakers in South Carolina passed a bill that also permitted execution by firing squad, however the state does not, and never has, had a protocol in place to carry out an execution in such manner.  In its unanimous decision, the South Carolina Supreme Court ruled that corrections officials need to establish a firing squad protocol so that "the statutory right of inmates to elect the manner of their execution" is upheld.

Scheduled Executions

Updated: Wednesday, June 16, 2021

Please pray for these men and women. Pray for salvation if unsaved, peace if saved, and that the innocent shall be revealed before they are executed. "The Lord is slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance." (2 Peter 3:9 ESV).
