    William Emmett LeCroy, Jr. - Federal Death Row


    JoAnn Tiesler




    Summary of Offense:

    A jury sentenced LeCroy to death in the 2001 carjacking and murder of JoAnn Tiesler of Gilmer County, Georgia. Attorneys for LeCroy argued that the murder took place inside the victim's house, and thus did not fall under the 1994 federal death penalty statute.

    On March 2, 2006, the US Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals upheld LeCroy's death sentence on direct appeal.

    On April 23, 2007, the United States Supreme Court denied certiorari.

    William Emmett LeCroy, Jr. v. USA

    Court upholds federal death sentence

    The federal appeals court in Atlanta on Wednesday upheld the death sentence imposed against a man who raped and killed a nurse practitioner after she returned to her North Georgia home from a shopping trip with her fiance.

    The court rejected claims raised by William Emmett LeCroy Jr., who sits on death row for the 2001 fatal carjacking of 30-year-old Joann Tiesler. LeCroy’s death sentence was the second capital sentence obtained by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Atlanta since Congress reinstated the death penalty for federal crimes in 1988.

    I wondered about this too, maybe. Here's what I found:

    The defendant/appellant, William Emmett LeCroy, Jr. ("LeCroy") was convicted in the Federal District Court in the Northern District of Georgia of taking a motor vehicle from a person, Joann Lee Tiesler, by force and violence resulting in her death, in violation of 18 U.S.C. 2119(3) ("carjacking"). After the penalty phase, the jury returned a death sentence.

    In today's orders, the United States Supreme Court declined to review LeCroy's petition for certiorari.

    Lower Ct: United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit
    Case Nos.: (12-15132)
    Decision Date: January 15, 2014
    Rehearing Denied: March 7, 2014

    http://www.supremecourt.gov/search.a...es/14-5536.htm

    Theoretically, LeCroy's appeals are now exhausted. Unfortunately, litigation over the federal government's lethal-injection protocol has continued to be bogged down in the District of Columbia District Court since 2006.
