State v. Reeves

About the Case


In State v. Reeves, the Commission conducted a hearing on December 14, 2007. The Commission voted by majority that there was sufficient evidence of factual innocence to merit judicial review. At that time, the case was referred to a three-judge panel.

The three-judge panel hearing was held in Pitt County from August 25, 2008 through September 3, 2008. At the conclusion of the hearing, the three-judge panel ruled that Mr. Reeves had not proven his innocence by clear and convincing evidence and relief was denied.
