THE STATE OF IN THE 299TH DISTRICT COURT
v. OF
LOUIS CASTRO PEREZ TRAVIS COUNTY, TEXAS
ORDER WITHDRAWING EXECUTION DATE
AND RECALLING DEATH WARRANT
On November 27, 2012, the Court issued an Execution Order and Death Wanant in the
above-captioned case setting the execution date of Louis Castro Perez for March 21, 2013. The
Court's action was based entirely on the representation of fue Assistant District Attomey in this
matter that all appeals and habeas proceedings bad been concluded. Since that time, the Comi
has leiti'ned that· Lobis Castro Perez has pending with the United States District Court for the
Western District of Texas a motion titled "Petitioner's Renewed Motion to Reopen Time to File
of Appeal from March 27, 2012 Judgment or, Alternatively, Motion to Vacate and Enter
New Judgment or, Alternatively, Motion to Extend Time to File Notice of Appeal of July 3,
2012 Order" (Docket #78) in a case styled Perez v. Thaler, No. 1:09-cv-00081-LY. Had the
Court understood that this motion was pending, it would not have issued the Order or Warrant.
At this time, the pen-signed originals of the Death Warrant and Execution Order have not been
served on the Director of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice as required by Article 43.15
of the Code of Criminal Procedure.
All parties agree that, in light of this mistake, the Execution Order should be vacated, the
execution date should be withdrawn, and the Death Warrant recalled.
