“After prayerful consideration and reviewing materials presented by all sides of this case, I have determined to commute Julius Jones’ sentence to life imprisonment without the possibility of parole,” Stitt announced today.

Stitt’s stipulations to Jones’ commutation is that he ever be eligible to apply for or be considered for a commutation, pardon, or parole for the rest of his life.


Earlier this month and back in September, the Oklahoma Pardon and Parole Board suggested that Jones be eligible for parole immediately, as Jones has already spent two decades behind bars for the 1999 murder of Paul Howell in front of his sister and two daughters. Jones contends his innocence and says his co-defendant shot Howell but framed him for the shooting.
