DNA testing could prove his innocence before Dec. 3 execution

Pervis Payne has maintained his innocence for more than 30 years. Yet, despite having no prior criminal record and living with an intellectual disability, he is scheduled to be executed in Tennessee on December 3, 2020. DNA testing could prove his innocence. 

On July 22, attorneys for Payne including the Innocence Project, the Federal Public Defender’s Office in Nashville and Milbank firm filed a request for DNA testing of newly discovered evidence in Payne’s case that could help prove his innocence.
