Statement from Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg on the U.S. Supreme Court decision today regarding the Bobby Moore case

February 19, 2019 

The death penalty is the most serious punishment available under Texas law. The U.S. Supreme Court, which has the ultimate say, has decided that those who are intellectually disabled cannot be executed. The Harris County District Attorney’s Office disagreed with our state’s highest court and the attorney general to stand for Justice in this case. The U.S. Supreme Court agreed. Bobby Moore is intellectually disabled.
