Nobel Laureates urge clemency for Stanley ‘Tookie’ Williams

In a letter released Wednesday, a group of Nobel laureates joined activists in urging Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger to grant clemency to Stanley “Tookie” Williams, who is set to be executed Dec. 13.

In the letter, Nobel laureates Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Mairead Corrigan Maguire, Betty Williams and Jody Williams and nearly 120 other people call on the governor to commute Williams’ “sentence of death to life in prison.”
