Prosecutors won’t seek death penalty for Jeremy Christian

November 4, 2019


NOT ONCE, BUT TWICE. ANYONE WITH INFORMATION SHOULD CALL DEPUTIES. JEFF: TWO YEARS AFTER A FATAL STABBING IN A MAX TRAIN, THE MAN ACCUSED OF KILLING TWO PEOPLE AND INJURING ANOTHER WILL NOT FACE THE DEATH PENALTY. VELENA JONES IS LIVE AT THE COURTHOUSE WITH HOW ONE OF THE VICTIM’S MOTHER IS REACTING TONIGHT. YOU KNOW, THIS NEWS COMES AFTER PROSECUTORS FILED A MOTION TO TAKE THE DEATH PENALTY OFF THE TABLE, CITING A NEW STATE LAW WHICH LIMITS WHO IS ELIGIBLE FOR THE DEATH PENALTY. WHAT’S REALLY COME TO ME STRONGLY IS THERE NEEDS TO BE A VOICE FOR LOVE. LOVE HAS BEEN A COMMON THEME IN ASHA DELIVERANCE’S LIFE. WE SPOKE TO HER EARLIER THIS YEAR DURING THE SECOND ANNIVERSARY OF THE MAX ATTACK THAT KILLED HER SON. FIVE MONTHS LATER, WITH NEWS THAT THE MAN WHO POLICE SAY IS RESPONSIBLE WILL NOT FACE THE DEATH PENALTY, HER MESSAGE STAYS THE SAME. WHEN SOMEBODY HAS AN ILLNESS AND THEY ARE SO DISTORTED IN THEIR THINKING, THAT IS AN ILLNESS. FOR ME, IT IS HOW TO BRING HEALING. NOT PUNISHMENT. JEREMY CHRISTIAN IS FACING MURDER CHARGES AFTER POLICE SAY HE STABBED AND KILLED TALIESIN ALONG WITH VETERAN RICKY BEST IN 2017. MICAH FLETCHER, ALSO WOUNDED, IS THE ONLY ONE WHO SURVIVED. DELIVERANCE TELLS ME SHE DOES NOT BELIEVE IN THE DEATH PENALTY. INSTEAD, SHE WOULD LIKE TO SEE THE COURTS TAKE A RESTORATIVE JUSTICE APPROACH TO CHRISTIAN’S SENTENCING. IF JEREMY CHRISTIAN, AS A YOUNG CHILD, HAD BEEN OFFERED SOME OF THESE GREAT OPTIONS, WE WOULD NOT HAVE THIS PROBLEM. YEARS LATER, DELIVERANCE SAYS HER TWO DAUGHTERS HAVE A DIFFERENT OPINION. I FEEL SADNESS FOR JEREMY CHRISTIAN, I FEEL COMPASSION FOR HIM. THEY PROBABLY FEEL MORE ANXIETY AROUND HIS NAME AND THEY HAVE A REALLY BIG, DIFFERENT SENTIMENT. I DON’T KNOW THAT ANY OF US BELIEVE IN CORPORAL PUNISHMENT, BUT I BELIEVE THAT THEY DO BELIEVE IN PUNISHMENT. CHRISTIAN’S TRIAL IS SET FOR NEXT YEAR. A JUDGE STILL HAS TO SIGN OFF ON THAT NEW MOTION. REPORTING LIVE IN DOWNTOWN PORTLAND, VELENA JONES. JEFF: THANK YOU. THIS IS A STORY WE HAVE BEEN FOLLOWING SINCE IT HAPPENED. WE WILL CONTINUE TO BRING YOU DEVELOPMENTS IN THIS STORY BOTH

    They go against the people keeping murderers and child rapists alive so they can make a profit on housing them. It's millions per guy they make their lifetime ward.
