Crips founder's fate rests with Schwarzenegger

Friday, December 9, 2005

SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- The fate of Stanley Tookie Williams is in Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's hands. Williams, founder of the murderous Crips gang, is scheduled to die Tuesday for murdering four people during two 1979 robberies. In a closed-door clemency hearing Thursday, Schwarzenegger gave both sides 30 minutes to present their cases. He has said it will be a difficult decision, which he could make at any point until the moment of execution.
