Description

Former bank manager Ronald Dalton never got to watch his three young children grow up. In 1989 he was convicted for a crime that never happened. His wife, Brenda, was later ruled to have choked to death on breakfast cereal not strangled as a pathologist had initially claimed. Dalton's daughter, Alison, was in kindergarten when he was charged with second-degree murder in 1988. He attended her high school graduation on June 26, 2000, two days after his conviction was finally overturned.

Behind the proud facade of Canada's criminal justice system lie the shattered lives of the people unjustly caught within its web. Justice Miscarried tells the heartwrenching stories of twelve innocent Canadians, including David Milgaard, Donald Marshall, Guy Paul Morin, Clayton Johnson, William Mullins-Johnson, and Thomas Sophonow, who were wrongly convicted and the errors in the nations justice system that changed their lives forever.

Reviews

"It is difficult to be unmoved by Katzs stories."

"Katz is a good storyteller. Her narratives are crisp, clear and to the point. The reader is made to see how injustice is done and to understand its consequences. She makes the case for the importance of compensation and, at the same time, she makes clear how inadequate a concept "compensation" turns out to be in such circumstances."
