Thirteen days is all we have left to free an innocent man. Rodney Reed has been sitting in a Texas penitentiary for over 20 years for a crime that evidence proves he didn’t commit. In 1998 Reed was convicted of the rape and murder of 19-year-old Stacey Stites. And less than two weeks away from one of the biggest mistakes the state of Texas could ever make, celebrities like Rihanna, Meek Mill and T.I. have been speaking out in favor of Rodney. But Dr. Phil has taken it a step further creating a special around Rodney to inform everyone of the unjust going on. And in hopes to change the ruling. Dr. Phil stopped by Sway In The Morning to talk about the latest.
The outpouring of support continues to push for a reprieve with his execution planned to take place in less than two weeks. A change.org petition urging the execution be stopped and all new evidence in the case be presented to a jury has also recently gained more than 2,000,000 signatures.
