More than 70 years later, in December 2014, George’s murder conviction was overturned by a South Carolina judge.
He was accused of the gruesome double murder of two white girls in the small town of Alcolu, South Carolina in March, 1944.
The bodies of Betty June Binnicker, aged 11, and Mary Emma Thames, eight, were found with their skulls fractured on the “black side” of the deeply divided community.
They had been bludgeoned to death with a railroad spike.
Police arrested little George after it emerged that he had seen the pair the previous day.
He was taken from his home by cops who then claimed he confessed to the double murder despite no written confession ever being produced.
There was also no physical evidence linking him to the crime.
His parents were never allowed to visit him following his arrest, his sister has claimed.
The infamous three-hour trial still hangs over South Carolina as one of the most horrifying miscarriages of justice ever carried out in the state.
George was sentenced to death by a jury of 12 white men who returned a guilty verdict after only 10 minutes of deliberation.
Just two months later, the 14-year-old child was led crying and shaking into the execution chamber.
Local newspaper reports say the guards had trouble strapping the small child, measuring 5ft 1in in height and weighing just 95lb (6st 7 lbs), into the electric chair which had been built for adults.
Their solution was to make George sit on a thick telephone directory.
Moments later the first surge of 2,400 volts were blasted into his little body before the adult death mask, too big for him, slipped from his face revealing tears streaming down from his eyes.
Following two more charges of electricity, the teenager was pronounced dead on June 16, 1944.
In December 2014, George’s murder conviction was overturned by a South Carolina judge.
Judge Carmen Mullen revealed that the boy’s lawyer had called "few or no witnesses," and failed to properly cross-examine his accusers.
His sister Amie Ruffner testified during the appeal process that her brother was at home on the day that two girls were killed and could not have possibly murdered them.
Amie said that that she watched her older brother being arrested by white policeman when she was just eight-years-old.
She says the next time she saw George was when she saw his "burned face" in an open casket at his funeral.
Amie says her family were hounded out of Alcolu because of the case and she has never returned since.
She said: “In those days, when you are white you were right, when you were black you were wrong."
A 1991 TV movie titled Carolina Skeletons recreates the terrifying execution of the teenager.
The film was based on a book of the same by George's nephew David Stout.

It was a joyfull moment for Ted Sams (78) and his family when he finally walked on stage to receive his high school diploma sixty years after he missed his 1962 graduation because of some teenage mischief and $4.80 (E3.40) overdue library fine he owed at his former school.
During his high school days, Ted and a friend were in a photography class when they were caught by the vice principal for photographing people without their consent and Ted was later suspended, leading to him missing the final exam and graduation. While he tried keeping up with his studies by attending summer school, Ted then found that he couldn't get his diploma because of the overdue library fine book.
“So I just walked away from it and said, 'Forget it',” he says.
In 2022, after much persuasion from his family Ted joined San Gabriel California High school in Los Angeles and got his high school diploma
Sams says he never expected to be back in high school 60 years later after he dropped out. He recounted how he would repeatedly complain to his children how a meagre $4.80 kept him from having a degree.
His daughter Sherry then suprised him by asking San Gabriel High in Los Angeles for a reprint of his diploma so he can attend graduation.
Luckily for him, the school hasn't thrown away the diploma and It was kept in a box, in senior archives.
In 27 May, Ted received an invitation from the school to be part of the graduation ceremony. The ceremony was attended by his wife and five children.
Even though it has been a long hard road, Ted says attaining his diploma has been a great achievement for him and the graduation was one of the highlights of his life.
“Actually, when he walked and got his diploma, every person on that stage hugged him and then the whole class applauded for him,” Sherry says.
Although the $4.80 fine hasn't been paid, Ted is now a graduate of San Gabriel High School's class of 2022.

According to Vilakati, tourism is one of the pillars in the country's economic development agenda. He says the government had a wakeup call from the COVID-19 pandemic because it forced it to expand the country's domestic tourism initiatives througn enhanced product development while introducing different adventure promotions.
Vilakati further urged companies and institutions to partner with the government in hosting the event which he described as a perfect epitome of the 'Only One Earth' theme of the environmental month.

In this way, the tourism economy will increase and enable extended sharing of benefits."
