12 November 2021 :
Abdur’Rahman taken off death row.
Abdur’Rahman, now 71, Black, entered guilty pleas to 3 high-level charges Tuesday in an agreement with the district attorney's office. Abdur’Rahman was convicted in the 1986 murder of Patrick Daniels, a suspected drug dealer, and sentenced to death in 1987. Judge Monte Watkins agreed to the plea taking Abu-Ali Abdur’Rahman off death row.
The plea deal changed Abdur’Rahman death row sentence to a life sentence. In the past, Abdur’Rahman’s supporters have said they believe his trial was unjust after 8 jurors stated they no longer have confidence in their verdict.
