A 14 year old boy

George Stinney, a 14-year-old African American boy, was wrongly convicted of murder in 1944 in South Carolina. The case was highly flawed, with minimal evidence and a lack of proper legal representation. Unfortunately, despite the knowledge of his innocence at that time, George Stinney was executed in the electric chair merely 83 days after the crime occurred.

It wasn’t until decades later, around 70 years after his wrongful execution, that new evidence emerged, highlighting the injustice of his conviction. His case became a symbol of racial injustice and flaws within the legal system, prompting efforts to seek justice retroactively and shed light on the wrongful treatment of individuals, especially within marginalized communities.

George Stinney was a 14-year-old African American boy who was wrongfully convicted and executed for the murder of two young white girls in Alcolu, South Carolina in 1944. Here are the key points of his case:

  1. On March 23, 1944, two young white girls, Betty June Binnicker, age 11, and Mary Emma Thames, age 7, were found dead in a ditch in Alcolu, South Carolina.

  2. George Stinney was arrested and interrogated without his parents or a lawyer present. He allegedly confessed to the murders after being held for several hours.

  3. Stinney’s trial lasted just one day, and his court-appointed lawyer did not call any witnesses or present any evidence on his behalf.

  4. The all-white jury deliberated for just 10 minutes before finding Stinney guilty of murder.

  5. Stinney was sentenced to death by electrocution, and he was executed just 83 days after the murders.

  6. In 2014, Stinney’s conviction was posthumously overturned by a South Carolina judge who ruled that he did not receive a fair trial due to his age, lack of legal representation, and the absence of a complete record of the proceedings.

  7. Stinney’s case is often cited as an example of racial injustice and the failure of the criminal justice system to protect the rights of children and minorities.

  8. The case also highlights the importance of due process and the right to a fair trial, particularly for vulnerable individuals such as children and those who may not have access to legal representation.

“Calling it a “great and fundamental injustice,” a South Carolina judge on Wednesday vacated the 1944 murder conviction of 14-year-old George J. Stinney Jr., the youngest person executed in the United States in the last century. Judge Carmen T. Mullen of Circuit Court did not rule that the conviction of Mr. Stinney for the murder of two white girls in the town of Alcolu was wrong on the merits. She did find, however, that the prosecution had failed in numerous ways to safeguard the constitutional rights of Mr. Stinney, who was black, from the time he was taken into custody until his death by electrocution. The all-white jury could not be considered a jury of the teenager’s peers, Judge Mullen ruled, and his court-appointed attorney did “little to nothing” to defend him. His confession was most likely coerced and unreliable, she added, “due to the power differential between his position as a 14-year-old black male apprehended and questioned by white, uniformed law enforcement in a small, segregated mill town in South Carolina.””* The Young Turks hosts Cenk Uygur breaks it down.

16 Judge overturns conviction of 14-yo executed in 1944 Finally! – George Stinney Exonerated

I’ve been following this story a long time. 
 
This update is bittersweet. (thanks to Kyle Kulinski from Secular Talk for the update https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8zdaN…
 
A South Carolina judge on Wednesday took the unusual step of vacating the 1944 conviction of a black 14-year-old boy, the youngest person executed in the United States in the past century, saying he did not receive a fair trial in the murders of two white girls. 
 
George Stinney Jr. was convicted by an all-white jury after a one-day trial and a 10-minute jury deliberation during a time when racial segregation prevailed in much of the United States. 
 
Stinney died in the electric chair less than three months after the killings of Betty June Binnicker, 11, and Mary Emma Thames, 7 
 
In her ruling, Judge Carmen Tevis Mullen said she was not overturning the case on its merits, which scant records made nearly impossible to relitigate, but on the failure of the court to grant Stinney a fair trial. 
 
She said few or no defense witnesses testified and that it was “highly likely” that Stinney’s confession to white police officers was coerced. 
 
“From time to time we are called to look back to examine our still-recent history and correct injustice where possible,” she wrote. “I can think of no greater injustice than a violation of one’s constitutional rights, which has been proven to me in this case by a preponderance of the evidence standard.” 
 
The girls disappeared on March 23, 1944, after leaving home in the small mill town of Alcolu on their bicycles to look for wildflowers. They were found the next morning in a ditch, their skulls crushed. 
 
Stinney was taken into custody that day and confessed within hours, according to Mullen’s ruling. 
 
Last year, members of Stinney’s family petitioned for a new trial. His sister, Amie Ruffner, 77, testified in a January hearing that he could not have killed the girls because he had been with her on that day. 
 
Citing the lack of a transcript from the original trial, no surviving physical evidence and only a handful of official documents, Mullen ruled instead to overturn the conviction outright. 
 
Ruffner and two other surviving siblings of Stinney, who were run out of town shortly after his arrest, were pleased with the outcome, said Stinney family attorney Matthew Burgess. 
 
“This is something that’s been weighing on them for seven decades now,” he said. “They are happy to hear that their brother has been exonerated.” 
 
Prosecutors, who had opposed a new trial, were not immediately available for comment.

Pennsylvania Teen Exonerated 91 Years After Sham Trial and Execution on Racially Motivated Charges that He Had Murdered a White Woman

Pennsylvania Teen Exonerated 91 Years After Sham Trial and Execution on Racially Motivated Charges that He Had Murdered a White Woman
An African-American teenager who was convicted and sentenced to death in Pennsylvania on false charges that he had murdered a white woman has been exonerated, 91 years after he was executed.

On June 13, 2022, Delaware County Court of Common Pleas Judge Kevin Kelly granted a motion filed jointly by lawyers for Alexander McClay Williams and the Delaware County District Attorney’s office to posthumously overturn Williams’ conviction and death sentence. (Williams is pictured with then-District Attorney William J. McCarter displaying the murder weapon.) District Attorney Jack Stollsteimer then filed a motion to “nol pros” the case, dismissing the charges against Williams and formally exonerating him. Williams, who was sixteen years old when he was put to death in the electric chair, was the youngest person ever executed in Pennsylvania.

The court action was the culmination of years of effort by Williams’ family and Sam Lemon, the great-grandson of his trial lawyer, to clear the teen of the murder of his school matron, Vida Robare. Robare had actually been murdered by her abusive ex-husband, shortly after she had obtained a divorce from him on grounds of “extreme cruelty.” Williams was represented at trial by William Ridley, the first African American admitted to the Bar of Delaware County. Ridley was provided just $10 to investigate and defend the case. An all-white jury convicted and condemned Williams based upon a confession coerced by police, after prosecutors withheld exculpatory evidence. The entire trial took less than a day. He was executed without an appeal.

Judge Kelly granted Williams a new trial, finding that the conviction was obtained as a result of “numerous fundamental due process violations.” A spokesperson for the District Attorney’s office said the decision to nol pros the case was “an acknowledgement that the charges against [Williams] should never have been brought.”

“Sadly, we cannot undo the past,” Stollsteimer said. “We cannot rewrite history to erase the egregious wrongs of our forebearers. However, when, as here, justice can be served by publicly acknowledging such a wrong, we must seize that opportunity.” Susie Carter, Williams’ only living sibling, responded joyously. “I am happy. I am happy,” she said. “There’s no way they can bring him back, but let his name be cleared of all that. He did not do it.”

Robare had been stabbed 47 times with an ice pick during the murder and suffered two broken ribs and a skull fracture. Williams, however, had no blood on him that day. A bloody handprint was discovered at the crime scene. Although law enforcement had the prints examined by experts, the results were not presented at trial and were withheld from the defense. Police never investigated Robare’s ex-husband as a possible suspect.

Williams’ confession, which did not match the circumstances of the crime, was given after hours of police interrogation under undocumented circumstances. A 1931 photograph shows Williams with what appears to have a black eye sustained during police interrogation. When Williams was sentenced to death, he shouted that he had been promised he wouldn’t be executed if he confessed.

During his investigation, Lemon uncovered Robare’s death certificate, which named Williams as her murderer before he even had been charged with the crime. “The guilty verdict was decided before the case even began,” Lemon said. Robert Keller, who posthumously represented Williams in the court proceedings, called the case “racial profiling at its worst.”

This effort was unsuccessful because Pennsylvania does not have a mechanism to grant a posthumous pardon. However, in 2017, because of Lemon’s continued advocacy, Williams’ record was expunged.

In 2015, Lemon unsuccessfully attempted to obtain a pardon for Williams, but the efforts failed because Pennsylvania has no mechanism to consider a posthumous pardon. Two years later, he succeeded in having Williams’ record expunged. The effort to exonerate Williams received a boost in November 2019 when Delaware County elected reform candidate Stollsteimer as district attorney. One of the issues in that campaign was the incumbent district attorney’s refusal to reopen a nearly 40-year-old murder case in which a defendant who consistently proclaimed his innocence had been implicated by a teen offender who had been threatened with the death penalty.

Williams’ case bears a striking resemblance to the case of George Stinney, a 14-year-old Black boy who was wrongfully convicted and sentenced to death by an all-white jury in South Carolina in 1944 for the murder of two young white girls. Stinney was the youngest person executed in the United States in the 20th century. His entire trial and sentencing lasted just three hours and the jury deliberated for only 10 minutes. As with Williams, Stinney did not file any appeals and was executed only months after his conviction. A South Carolina trial court vacated Stinney’s conviction in 2014, posthumously exonerating him.

The United States of America likes to pride itself as an epitome of truth and justice to both its inhabitants and the rest of the world. Over the years since its inception, there has been one too much evidence that proves that even the great American way is as flawed and as biased as they come.

There’s an untapped level just beneath hell, which it sought to explore. The country was split between a Jim Crow South and the other half that would come to be known as the Union.

The South favored the continued oppression and disenfranchisement of people of color. On the other hand, the Union considered everyone to have somewhat equal rights. Hence, the civil war.

But this isn’t about the war, it’s about one of the most overt and brazen acts of evil ever perpetrated, which saw the death of a minor in a case that followed anything but the due legal processes. It begs the question of how we continue to trust the criminal justice system even when they show an abject lack of objectivity and prejudice to a particular sect.

They had one job.

Welcome or welcome back to another episode of Twisted Minds, my name is James, and today, we’ll be looking into the case of 14 year old, George Stinney Jr, who was subjected to the electric chair for being of color in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Step into the chilling world of 14-year-old George Stinney, a condemned soul trapped behind the merciless bars of death row. In this gripping tale, we uncover the heart-wrenching events leading up to his fateful execution. Brace yourself for an extraordinary journey as we delve into the untold story, just one day before tragedy strikes.

In the small town of Alcolu, South Carolina, in 1944, George Stinney, a 14-year-old boy, lived with his family. They were poor and African-American, struggling in a segregated America. One day, the bodies of two young girls, Betty June Binnicker and Mary Emma Thames, were found in a ditch on the African-American side of town. The authorities quickly targeted George and his older brother, John, as suspects. Although John was later released, George was held in custody.
George’s world turned upside down. He was denied the presence of his parents or an attorney during the questioning. The police overlooked vital evidence that could have proved his innocence. With a court-appointed attorney who did little to defend him, George faced a trial that lasted only a few hours. The verdict was a guilty one, and the punishment was severe. Let’s unleash this disturbing story!

On March 23, 1944, the bodies of Betty June Binnicker, 9 and Mary Emma Thames, 7, were found in a ditch in Alcolu, South Carolina. George Stinney Jr., 14 was arrested on suspicion of rape and murder along with his older brother John. George was questioned by police for hours without being allowed to talk with counsel or his family. The jury deliberated for 10 minutes before finding George guilty and sentencing him to death. On June 16, 1944, George Stinney Jr. was sent to the electric chair.

A citizen investigation led to a reopening of the case and on December 16, 2014 Judge Carmen Mullen of the South Carolina Circuit Court vacated George’s conviction.

A US court will decide if a 14-year-old black boy executed for murder in 1944 was given a fair trial. A judge has been hearing from supporters of George Stinney, who say his conviction was pushed through a racist justice system, despite a lack of evidence. The bodies of 11-year-old Betty June Binniker and seven-year-old Mary Emma Thames were found in a ditch in the town of Alcolu, Soth Carolina in 1944. Within hours, 14-year-old George Stinney was arrested by police who claimed the teenager gave an oral confession, but there is no record of that. Al Jazeera’s Alan Fisher reports.

2 mei 2015

UPDATE Dec-2014 George Stinney was cleared (conviction vacated) in a court of law – 70 years too late.
He is listed in Wikipedia’s “List of wrongful convictions in the United States” as “Legally Exonerated.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of… George Junius Stinney Jr. was, at age 14, the youngest person executed in the United States in the 20th century (1944)

The boy was small for his age (5’1) so small, they had to stack books on the electric chair. The photos at the end are George. (compare little George in this actual photo to the two big guys wearing hats http://tinyurl.com/lwo4g49 )

https://www.postandcourier.com/columb…

Because there was literally NO EVIDENCE AGAINST HIM (accused of murdering two white girls) …the question of Stinney’s guilt and the judicial process leading to his execution remained controversial for years.

This clip is from the 1991 movie “Carolina Skeletons” which is based on that event.

65 STOLEN LIFE: THE EXECUTION OF 14 YR OLD GEORGE STINNEY JR

Back to menu

 

23 mrt 2022

George Stinney Jr was only 14 years old when he died in the electric chair after being convicted of murder in just 10 minutes by an all-white jury. He is the youngest person to be executed in America during the 20th century.
In March 1944, the African American teenager was accused of the double murder of two white girls in the quiet, segrgated town of Alcolu, South Carolina.

The bodies of Mary Emma Thames, eight, and Betty June Binnicker, 11, were discovered on the ‘black side’ of town with their skulls fractured. The two young white girls had been found brutally murdered, beaten over the head with a railroad spike and dumped in a water-logged ditch.

Police arrested George after it was found that he had seen the pair the day before picking wildflowers. He was collected from his home by police who claimed he confessed to the double murder even though a written confession was never given.

Police came for 14-year-old George Stinney Jr. His parents weren’t at home. His little sister was hiding in the family’s chicken coop behind the house while officers handcuffed George and his older brother, Johnnie, and took them away. He and his little sister were said to be the last ones to see them alive. Authorities later released the older Stinney – and directed their attention toward George.

He was questioned in a small room, alone – without his parents and without an attorney present.

NEVER FORGET: GEORGE STINNEY

“George Stinney Jr was the youngest person to be sentenced to death in the 20th century in the United States. He was only 14 years old when he was executed in an electric chair.

During his trial, even on the day of his execution, he always carried a bible in his hands, claiming to be innocent.

He was accused of killing two white girls, 11-Year-old Betty, and Mary of 7, the bodies were found near the house where the teenager resided with his parents. At that time, all members of the jury were white. The trial lasted only 2 hours, and the sentence was dictated 10 minutes later.

The Boy’s parents were threatened, and prevented from being present in the courtroom, and subsequently expelled from that city.

Before the execution, George spent 81 days in prison without being able to see his parents.
He was held in solitary, 80 miles from his city.

He was electrocuted with 5,380 volts in his head, imagine all that voltage in a teenager’s head.

70 years later, his innocence was finally proven by a judge in South Carolina.

The boy was innocent, someone set it up to blame him for being black.”

THE TRAGIC STORY OF GEORGE STINNEY JR | BETTY JUNE BINNIKER | MARY EMMA THAMES

On the 24th of March, 1944, the search for two missing girls, 11 year old Betty June Binnicker and her friend, 7 year old Mary Emma Thames, came to an end when their badly beaten bodies were found in a ditch near the Green Hill Baptist Church in Alcolu, South Carolina.

A local boy, George Stinney Jr, who was 14 years old at the time, was arrested, convicted and executed for the murder of Betty and Mary within three months of the incident. However, questions about his guilt and how he was treated resurfaced in the 2010s and, after an inquest into how George Stinney Jr was treated by the state, his conviction was vacated – 70 years after his execution.

Thursday, 23rd March 1944, was like any other normal weekday for the Stinney family. George Jr, Charles, Katherine and Amie Jr attended school, their father worked at the sawmill and Amie Sr worked at the school as the cook.

Amie Jr said that she, at the age of 7, was described by George Jr as his “shadow”. He was like her friend and she followed him everywhere he went.

George’s job was to walk the cow down the road to find fresh grass on which Lizzie could graze and then get her some water before setting her back in the shed.

That day was no different and George Jr took Lizzie towards the railroad, where there were grass verges on the side, so that Lizzie could graze. Amie and George sat on the railroad as Lizzie grazed when two young girls walked by. These girls were Betty and Mary, and Betty was pushing a bicycle.

Amie Jr commented that she had never seen these girls before and it was unusual for them to be seen in that area. According to Amie Jr, Betty and Mary asked where they could find maypops. George and Amie told the girls that they did not know where there were any maypops and Betty and Mary went on their way.

After Lizzie had finished grazing, George and Amie took her back to the house to have a drink, George put her back in the shed and the family had dinner. Later that night, someone came to their door saying that Betty and Mary had not been seen and were missing. Georges Sr and Jr both went out to look.

The girls weren’t found until dawn the following day in the ditch in a small area of woodland behind the Green Hill Baptist Church, partially hidden underneath the foliage and Betty’s bicycle, with the front wheel missing.

Both girls skulls had been cracked and broken, with their skulls in fragments, their faces black and blue and even with puncture wounds in their heads that went right through.

George Jr had already confirmed that he had seen the girls earlier that day by the railroad. Later that day, George Jr was arrested for the murders of Betty and Emma.

Less than three months later, he too would be dead, having been tried, convicted, sentenced and executed for their murders.

However, evidence suggests that George Jr may have been innocent and, 70 years after his death, his conviction was vacated on the basis that he did not receive a fair trial.

Questions still remain as to whether George Stinney Jr killed Betty and Mary or if it was someone else.

George Stinney was a young African American boy who was executed in South Carolina in 1944. He was only 14 years old when he was charged with the murder of two white girls, Betty June Binnicker and Mary Emma Thames, who were both 11 years old.

Stinney was arrested and interrogated without a lawyer or his parents present. He was reportedly coerced into a false confession, which he later recanted. Despite the lack of evidence and a fair trial, Stinney was convicted by an all-white jury and sentenced to death.

The case against Stinney was riddled with flaws, including the lack of physical evidence, alibis for Stinney, and no eyewitnesses. There was also no evidence of sexual assault or a motive for the crime. The trial lasted only two hours, and the jury took only 10 minutes to deliberate and deliver a guilty verdict.

Stinney’s execution was one of the most egregious examples of racial injustice in American history. He was too small for the electric chair, so he had to sit on a book to reach the electrodes. Despite protests from civil rights activists and pleas for clemency from Stinney’s family and community, he was executed on June 16, 1944.

Stinney’s case was eventually reopened in 2014, and he was exonerated of all charges. The evidence used against him was deemed insufficient, and his conviction was vacated. The case shed light on the injustices faced by African Americans in the South during the Jim Crow era and highlighted the importance of due process and fair trials for all individuals, regardless of race.

Stinney’s story has been immortalized in films, documentaries, and books, and his legacy lives on as a symbol of the fight for justice and equality. His tragic death serves as a reminder of the long and ongoing struggle for civil rights in America and the importance of vigilance in the face of injustice.

Born on the 21st October 1929, in South Carolina, United States, George was a 14 year old African American boy who was convicted of murdering two white girls on the 22nd March 1944. On the day prior to their death, they had ridden past George and his sister who was grazing their cow asking where they could find “maypops” but he couldn’t help. ⁠

George was picked up after their bodies were discovered and he was taken to prison without his parent or a lawyer present. He was forced to confess to the murders. His trial lasted for about three hours. His lawyer, Charles Powden presented no evidence nor did he call any witnesses and the all-white jury took just 10 minutes to decide he was guilty. He sat on death row for 84 days before he was executed. ⁠
