A Wilson County man, who for years has sought a formal exoneration after serving 31 years in prison for a rape he did not commit, has been granted a hearing before the Tennessee Board of Parole, the Tennessean reports. Lawrence McKinney, 60, has been trying to clear his name since DNA evidence cleared him of the crime in 2009. The parole board will meet Sept. 27 to consider his case.
