Book Description

June 14 2011

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.

Review

"It is difficult to be unmoved by Katzs stories." (The Winnipeg Free Press 2011-08-27)

"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." (Literary Review of Canada)

5.0 out of 5 stars The Scales Of Injustice May 19 2014
By corywf
Format:Kindle Edition
A classic example of what the courtroom really is at times: an arena where it's all about winning and nothing to do with the truth.
2 of the case reviews are of an individual spending 10+ years in prison, not for a crime they did not commit but what was determined to be death by accident or natural causes- there was no crime committed at all!
I think this book should be a given assignment / required reading for all students at some point.
