It is from this video. It is at 6 minute and 13 second.
Twelve years later, 2006, I learned that the man dropped all of his appeals, and his execution date was approaching.
Does the speaker mean that all of the man's attempts to get acquitted failed, or that he accepted the sentence?

It means he accepted the sentence. To "drop an appeal" is to withdraw the attempt for retrial.
