Greg Lance was convicted in a 1998 double homicide that took place in Cookeville, Tennessee. With no physical or DNA evidence, the State of Tennessee convicted an innocent man of murder taking him away from his pregnant wife. 20 years later, he has never seen his daughter outside of prison walls. Although he has remained constant in his innocence throughout the entire process, his appeals have been denied relief at every phase.
Recently, Greg's story has been recognized by Sundance's It Couldn't Happen Here, hosted by Hilarie Burton. In Season 1, Episode 4, Hilarie covers Greg's story and talks to his family about their decades long fight. Now, in Season 2, Hilarie and her team return for some updates on Greg's case. Season 2 airs September 1st on AMC.
"Our case in Tennessee from last year, Greg Lance, an innocent man in prison for a double homicide he didn't commit -- since the airing of our episode, two new people have come forward and signed affidavits saying, 'He didn't do it.'"
