Jerry Jerome Smith—black, age 25 (re-sentence after appellate reversal)

Sentenced to death in Houston County, Alabama
By: A judge after a jury recommendation
Date of crime: 10/19/96
Prosecution case/defense response: Smith shot three victims to death in a dispute over a drug debt. In mitigation he claimed that he had been high on drugs and alcohol, was under pressure to pay his drug supplier, and was provoked by one of the victim’s name-calling of his girlfriend. This re-sentence was the fourth time Smith had been sentenced to death, the three earlier sentencing proceedings having been found deficient by Alabama appellate courts (and an Alabama appellate court later reversed this one, as well, due to violation of the defendant’s right to a public trial during jury selection).
