Innocence on Trial The Framing of Ivan Henry by Joan McEwen
Finalist, 2015 Arthur Ellis Prize for Non-Fiction from the Crime Writers' Association of Canada
In early-1980s Vancouver, Ivan Henry was an ex-convict still adjusting to civilian life when he was detained on a break-and-enter charge. A short time later, he found himself on trial for ten charges of sexual assault-crimes he vehemently denied committing. Declared a dangerous offender in November 1983, Henry spent twenty-seven years in prison before being acquitted in 2010 on the basis of unreliable evidence. To this day he has not been compensated or publicly exonerated.
This is a powerful story of justice miscarried and one man's determined quest to win restitution for the wrongly convicted.
