George Junius Stinney exonerated 70-years after his wrongful execution

On Wednesday, South Carolina judge Carmen T. Mullins exonerated George Junius Stinney, seventy years after he was found guilty and executed for allegedly killing two white girls. 

Stinney, a 14-year-old, 5” 2’ and weighing only 90 pounds was executed for allegedly beating the two girls to death in the small town of Alcolu in 1944. On June 16, 1944,

he was found quilty by an all-white “kangaroo court,” just ten minutes after deliberation.

Stinney, who was executed at the South Carolina State Penitentiary in Columbia, reportedly walked to the execution chamber with his Bible under his arm. Because of his small stature, the executioners used his Bible as a booster seat in the electric chair. The 2,400 volt of electricity literally charred his tiny body.
