14 Years Old George Stin­ney Jr Was Exe­cut­ed for a Crime He Did­n’t Com­mit — Here’s What we Know

George Stin­ney Jr of African descent 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 heard alone with­out the pres­ence of his par­ents or a lawyer.

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.

May his inno­cent soul con­tin­ue to rest in peace.
