DNA Testing for Pervis Payne’s Case

Today, the Shelby County Criminal Court ordered DNA testing of crime scene evidence that has never been tested in Pervis Payne’s case.

Payne has maintained his innocence for more than 30 years. Yet, despite having no prior criminal record and living with an intellectual disability, he is set to be executed in Tennessee on December 3, 2020. Finally, the DNA evidence will be tested.

Grateful for this decision to test the DNA!
