Wrongfully Convicted Part One

Synopsis

EPISODE 27 Tue 27 Aug
In criminal law it’s said that ‘it’s better that 10 guilty men go free than one innocent man be wrongly convicted.’ In the first of Insight's two part special, we meet men and women who have been sent to jail only to have their conviction later quashed.

“I didn't think I was going to jail because I didn't participate in any kind of crime and especially a crime against my own child … But I didn't go home, he took me to the main jail.”

Gregory Bright

"I was optimistic. I'm thinking that, after I cooperate and inform them that I don't know the victim, they're going to release me and I'll be able to go home … After that night it was 27 and a half years before I was able to come home."
