The Appeal today featured the story of Randall Mills, a Tennessee man who was wrongfully convicted but who is struggling to receive official exoneration. Mills was accused of raping a 12-year-old neighbor, and he served 11 years in prison and 3 years on the sex offender registry before the district attorney’s office dismissed all charges in 2014. He applied for exoneration in 2017 but was denied by the Tennessee Board of Parole. He plans to submit another request to Gov. Bill Lee.
