Rate this:
They have swept across this country like a wave since the 1990s, men and women in Canada who were convicted of murder, and after spending years and sometimes decades in prison, were later found innocent. Names like James Driskell, David Milgaard, Guy Paul Morin and Steven Truscott are the more well-known Canadians who have been wrongfully convicted of murder, but there are more dating back to the 1950s. Romeo Phillion, Gregory Parsons, Wilbert Coffin and Donald Marshall Jr. have also since been exonerated of murder convictions. However, Wilbert Coffin's innocence was discovered only after he was hanged.Wrongfully Accused tells the stories of these men who were the subject of police incompetence, malicious prosecution and faulty testimony.
