No decision on Johnson clemency request

Posted: Updated:

The Georgia State Board of Pardons and Paroles announced that they will not issue a clemency decision today for Marcus Ray Johnson.

Johnson got the death penalty for murdering Angela Sizemore in 1994 in Albany.

The Board can grant clemency and commute the death sentence to life without parole, life with the possibility of parole or deny clemency, or issue a stay to further consider the case.

In Georgia, the Board is the sole authority for granting clemency.
