- This is weird. Bill pending in Tennessee would allow inmates cleared by DNA testing to bypass the governor and be exonerated by the legislature. Articles suggest currently governor is only options for such inmates. A quick look at the Tennessee rules seems to suggest that such a motion could only be brought in the court system if it were made within 30 days of sentencing. WTH? That’s awful. Tennessee needs an innocence organization to fix that situation and get a real “motion for new trial” rule passed in that state.
