Exonerated After Execution: 12 Men (And One Woman) Found Innocent After Being Put to Death

- By

Gary Graham

Graham was executed in 2000 after 19 years on death row. In a case eerily similar to that of Troy Davis, Graham’s execution was also delayed for three hours for a last-second appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court for clemency, which was denied. Despite 33 reviews of his case, Graham could not escape his sentence. Yet, the only evidence against him was the testimony of one person “who said she saw the killer’s face for a few seconds through her car windshield, from a distance of 30-40 feet away” (Deathpenaltyinfo.org). His life was taken at 36.
