Kenneth Foster to Remain in Solitary Confinement Despite Commuted Sentence

Supporters of former Texas death row inmate Kenneth Foster, Jr. learned today that he will remain in solitary confinement indefinitely at the McConnell Unit in Beeville. He has been placed at the lowest security level, meaning he has the highest amount of restrictions on his daily activities. He will only be allowed two visits per month and will not have contact visits.

Family and supporters of Foster had expected that his commutation would result in looser restrictions on his visitations. Specifically, they had hoped he would be able to have contact visits with his wife, Tasha Narez-Foster, and his daughter, Nydesha Foster. Foster has never had physical contact with his wife and has not touched his daughter since she was an infant.

“This is a very discouraging development,” said Lily Hughes of the Campaign to End the Death Penalty, “Obviously, we are happy that Kenneth is no longer on death row, but the fact that he is living under basically the same conditions as death row is unacceptable.” Inmates on Texas’ death row live in 22-hour lockdown and do not have contact visits with family.

Foster was scheduled to be executed on August 30 for the murder of Michael LaHood, Jr. in San Antonio. Foster did not shoot the gun that ended LaHood’s life, but was driving the car carrying the actual triggerman, Mauriceo Brown. Foster was convicted and sentenced to death under the Law of Parties, which allows the state to seek convictions for those present at the scene of a crime as if they committed it. Since Foster’s original trial, the other men in the car that night have testified that Foster had no idea LaHood would be shot.

Foster’s case generated widespread international attention over the summer, mainly due to the Austin-based movement against his execution. Formed in May, the Save Kenneth Foster Campaign held weekly meetings, public rallies, and contacted media in an effort to halt Foster’s impending execution.

Approximately six hours before Foster was to be put to death, Governor Rick Perry approved the Board of Pardons and Paroles’ 6-1 recommendation in favor of clemency. "I believe the right and just decision is to commute Foster's sentence from the death penalty to life imprisonment,” Perry said in a statement following the commutation, “I am concerned about Texas law that allows capital murder defendants to be tried simultaneously, and it is an issue I think the Legislature should examine."

THIS IS ABRURD!!! HE SHOULDN'T EVEN BE IN PRISON!!!

Anna said...

Francesca, you absolutely hit the nail on the head! On what grounds can they do this??? Incredible...

Ricky said...

Francesca, why shouldn't he be in prison? Ok, I can possibly see the argument as to why he shouldn't be executed (although I do not accept it myself personally), but not in prison at all? Come on now.

Esser said...

ricky, you know what? You are a fucking idiot. Why do you think he shall still be in prison? He has done some roberies but thats not a reason to put someone behind bars forever. He has been in jail too long already.

R.I.P Kenneth when you're gone.

This man was involed in the taking the life of another human being. He deserves to be where he is. I do not believe that we need to have a death penalty because it is too costly for these people. I believe he and others that commit such horrendus crimes or had helped in the act that they should be held in sollitary confinement. He was involved and before the crime could have left at any time, but he chose not to. He has taken the life of the victim and there family and destroyed them. I feel for his love ones, but he made the choice. Now he has to live with his decisions. Foster and all the other murderers that take the life of a inocent citizen should D.I.P..
