Day 222 of Gov. McCrory denying justice to Henry McCollum and Leon Brown
It has now been 222 days since since Governor Pat McCrory received a formal request for a pardon from Henry McCollum and Leon Brown, two Robeson County men who both spent 31 years in prison for a rape and murder they did not commit.
Brown and McCollum, both struggling to make ends meet, need the pardon so they can receive the financial compensation from the state for their wrongful incarceration for more than three decades.
McCrory applauded the exoneration of the two men last September and said he was ready to receive their application for a pardon. It was filed September 11th of last year, 222 days ago.
No word from McCrory about why he continues to deny the two men the justice they deserve but he has been busy with things he apparently thinks are more important.
Today he attended the North Carolina Fit Family Press Conference.
