• Miller Shealy, a professor at the Charleston School of Law, announces at the school in Charleston, S.C., on Friday, Aug. 26, 2016, that attorneys plan to bring a civil rights lawsuit stemming from the 1944 execution of George Stinney. Stinney, executed in Columbia, S.C., was one of the youngest defendants executed in American history and the youngest executed in the 20th century. An all-white jury took only 10 minutes to decide Stinney's fate in the summer of 1944. A South Carolina state judge vacated the conviction almost two years ago. Attorneys announced Friday they will be working with law school students to file a lawsuit on behalf of Stinney's family. (AP Photo/Bruce Smith)
