Morgan- Thirty-nine year old William Mayo was given two life sentences and two 20-year sentences after being convicted in Smyrna of armed robbery and aggravated assault in 1991.

He says he is innocent. Friday morning, Mayo's attorneys planned to present evidence of misconduct on behalf of Cobb County prosecutors.

The court refused, saying that evidence has already been heard and refuted.

"We're almost speechless, but this inspires us to work harder. This is a true travesty, a true injustice," says WJM Innocence Coalition president Kimberly Todd.

Mayo's lawyers have already filed for another hearing in Cobb County.
