Missouri Schedules Sixth Execution Within a Year

Johnny Johnson

On April 6, the state of Missouri scheduled the execution of Johnny Johnson, who was convicted for the 2007 murder of seven-year-old Cassandra Williamson. The execution, scheduled to occur on August 1, 2023, will be the state’s sixth scheduled execution within the last 365 days. As is the case with each Missouri death row inmate, the Missouri Catholic Conference intends to submit a clemency letter to the governor on the inmate’s behalf, as well as organize a respectful protest outside the governor’s office on the day of the execution. 

The Catholic Church is strongly opposed to the death penalty because it disregards the sanctity and dignity of human life. If you would like to contact Governor Parson regarding Mr. Johnson’s execution, you can reach his office via phone at (573) 751-3222 or email him here.
