Richard Glossip has been on death row for the past 23 years. He claims he was wrongly convicted of first-degree murder and innocent of the charge that he hired his co-worker Justin Sneed to kill their then-boss, Oklahoma City motel owner Barry Van Treese, in 1997. Sneed admitted to killing Van Treese and was sentenced to life. Glossip has been granted a stay of execution on three separate occasions. His last stay of execution was in 2015 due to concerns about the state of Oklahoma's lethal injection protocol. His attorney Don Knight says critical new information could prove Richard Glossip innocent, but time is running out. In the video above, Jason Flom, Founder and CEO of Lava Media, Founding Board Member of The Innocence Project, and host of the “Wrongful Conviction And Righteous Convictions with Jason Flom” podcast, says Richard Glossip has a kind of grace that “defies the imagination when you consider what has happened to him through no fault of his own.” On Friday’s Dr. Phil, “Getting Richard Glossip Off Death Row," hear Dr. Phil’s recent phone interview with the death row inmate and see what several of his high profile supporters, including activist and author Sister Helen Prejean, actress and activist Susan Sarandon, Oklahoma State Representatives Kevin McDugle and Justin Humphrey, and others have to say about the case.
