On December 17, 2020, Governor Roy Cooper pardoned Ronnie Long. The State of NC has finally admitted that they got it wrong & that Ronnie Long is INNOCENT! This makes him eligible to receive the max compensation of $750,000 for the 44 years he lost.
Ronnie Long's wife recorded the moment his attorney, Jamie Lau, gave him the wonderful news that Governor Roy Cooper had granted his pardon petition.
