McClurkin Petition filed before the South Carolina Supreme Court

Here is a copy of the petition recently filed with the South Carolina Supreme Court, in an attempt by the South Carolina Actual Innocence Project to reverse the murder conviction of James McClurkin.  This will actually be the FIRST TIME an appellate court has ever examined the facts, or even been presented with the facts, surrounding James’ conviction.

McClurkin Petition to the SC Supreme Court

If the petition is granted, and James’ conviction is reversed, it will re-set the statute of limitations on many of his civil claims.  If not, the civil claims will face substantial hurdles.  Let’s hope that for once, the criminal justice system in South Carolina does right by Mr. McClurkin.
