Texas Wants to Execute This Man Next Week. He's Fighting to Live

Texas death row inmate Quintin Jones is scheduled to be executed May 19. But Jones is pleading to Gov. Greg Abbott for clemency, telling the New York Times contributor Suleika Jaouad that he is a different person than he was 2 decades ago. Jones was put on death row after confessing to the murder of his great-aunt. His family has forgiven him and would rather see him live out his years in prison than be retraumatized by another relative’s death.
