Day 224 of Gov. McCrory denying justice to Henry McCollum and Leon Brown
Thursday marks the 224th day that Governor Pat McCrory has refused to grant a pardon of innocence to Henry McCollum and Leon Brown, the two Robeson County men who both spent 31 years in prison for a rape and murder they did not commit.
McCollum and Brown need the pardon to receive the financial compensation available from the state for the years of their lives that were taken from them.
There’s still no explanation from McCrory about why he hasn’t granted the pardon. He received the application for it from McCollum and Brown last September 11—224 days ago.
Today instead of granting the pardon McCrory was near Charlotte for the dedication of a visitor center at Lake Norman State Park.
