Gov. Bill Haslam signed an executive order Wednesday morning to exonerate Lawrence McKinney, who was convicted nearly 40 years ago of crimes he didn’t commit.
The fate of Lawrence McKinney’s exoneration now lies with Gov. Bill Haslam after the Tennessee Board of Parole unanimously voted against recommending exoneration to the governor.
Lawrence McKinney will have his exoneration hearing next week after years of waiting and fighting for his ultimate freedom.
Lowery and Raybin will represent man who was wrongly sentenced
