Bring That Week Back: NYC Mayor-Elect Agrees to Settle Central Park Five Suit
George Stinney, Black Teen Executed in 1944, May Get New Trial
Supporters of George Stinney, a 14-year-old who was executed in 1944 for killing two white girls in South Carolina, are asking for a new trial in his case. A lawsuit was filed on behalf of Stinney that is asking for his name to be exonerated instead of pardoned. Much of the evidence that the deputies used to convict Stinney has disappeared.
