Man Wrongfully Convicted Looks to Clear Name Completely

A Grundy County man wrongfully convicted of murder hopes the state will clear his name Wednesday. 

The Tennessee Board of Parole will hear Adam Braseel’s case following a wrongful conviction of murder. 

In 2007, Braseel was convicted of the murder of Malcom Burrows in Tracy City and aggravated assault of his sister. 

A fingerprint from the crime scene was tested by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation. The results showed the fingerprint belonged to Kermit Eugene Bryson, who had similar features to Braseel. 

Last year, the murder charge was thrown out and Braseel pleaded guilty to aggravated assault, which allowed him to be released from prison on time served. 

It cleared him of murder, but it left a felony on his record. 

He said exoneration is the last piece of freedom, which is in the hands of the Tennessee Board of Parole.
