CDPL client Henry McCollum has been granted a rare pardon of innocence by Gov. Pat McCrory, and is now eligible for up to $750,000 in compensation for the 30 years he spent on death row. McCollum was N.C.’s longest serving death row inmate when he was exonerated in September 2014. CDPL represented McCollum for 20 years, along with attorneys from the law firm of WilmerHale in Boston, and the N.C. Innocence Inquiry Commission conducted substantial investigation in the case.
