One of the saddest chapters in history.

George stinney Jr, the youngest person to be sentenced to death in the United States

He was 14 years old when he was executed in an electric chair. During his trial he always carried a Bible in his hands claiming his innocence. He was accused of killing two white girls, 11 year old Betty and Mary of 7 whose bodies were found near the house the boy and his parents lived. At that time, all members of the jury were whites. The trial lasted 2 hours only and the sentence was dictated 10 minutes later.

The boy's parents were not allowed in the court room, and subsequently expelled from that city after the trial.

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 held alone without anybody to talk to. He was electrocuted with 5380 VOLTS IN HIS HEAD.

70 years later, in 2014, his innocence was finally proven by a judge in South Carolina.

MAY HIS INNOCENT SOUL REST IN Peace
