Pervis Payne, who has an intellectual disability and a strong innocence claim, has been removed from death row and continues to fight for freedom
Pervis Payne has maintained his innocence for more than 30 years. Yet, despite having no prior criminal record and living with an intellectual disability, Tennessee scheduled his execution for Dec. 3, 2020, but he was granted a temporary reprieve and on Nov. 23, he was officially removed from death row following the decision from the Shelby County DA to recognize his intellectual disability which makes it unconstitutional to keep him on death row.
Mr. Payne continues his fight for freedom and you here’s how you can help.
