(Jew) Halprin was sentenced to death in 2003 by then state District Judge Vickers “Vic” Cunningham for his role in the so-called Texas 7 prison escape. Halprin was one of seven men who escaped from a South Texas prison in December 2000 and went on to commit several robberies, including a Christmas Eve crime in which a police officer was killed. Four members of the group have already been executed, the fifth killed himself before he could be recaptured, and the sixth is also set to be executed this year.

The push to stay Halprin’s death date is part of a larger effort to obtain a new trial for him. Halprin’s lawyers argued in a federal appeal in May that Cunningham was a “racist and anti-Semitic bigot” who privately described their client as “that fuckin’ Jew” and a “goddamn kike.” Cunningham also believed in anti-Semitic conspiracy theories about Jewish people, the lawyers wrote.
