Meet 14 Year Old Black Boy Executed for a Crime Trial Judge Today Says He's Innocent of!

He was 14 in 1944 and all it took 12 white mento convict him of beating two white girls to death was 10 minutes and in less than three months George Stinney Jr. was strapped to the wheelchair and electrocuted. 10 minutes to convict 14-year-old George Stinney Jr. for beating two young white girls to death. Yesterday, Circuit Court Judge Carmen Mullins vacated the decision, which sent Stinney to the electric chair on what civil rights advocates have said for years was a coerced confession. In Alcolu, a small South Carolina town, NBC News reported that Stinney confessed to beating two girls, ages 11 and 8, with a railroad spike (after he was tortured). When he was arrested he was so small he had to sit on a phone book in the electric chair when he was executed. NBC News notes that “[i]n a 2009 affidavit, Stinney’s sister said she had been with him on the day of the murders and he could not have committed them.”
