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. Henry spent twenty-seven years in prison before a 2010 DNA test proved his innocence and secured his release. To this day, however, he has not been compensated or publicly exonerated.

This is a powerful, heartbreaking, frustrating story of justice miscarried and an innocent man who fell through the cracks.

What do Donald Marshall, Paul Morin, Dave Milgaard have in common? They were victims of Canada's adversarial court system. Such a system pits one person against another. Evidence is withheld, distorted and even in the case of Messrs. Marshall and Morin manufactured by the police. Janice McEwen writes a devastating critique of Canada's Justice system. Ivan Henry was denied a lie detector test and the Crown refused to consider any serological examinations. Why not? Innocent On Trial is a must read but not an enjoyable one. Henry R

Poorly written to the point of being almost unreadable. At the outset, McEwen says that she doesn't know criminal law. She's right, she doesn't. Henry was convicted despite identification evidence that was full of holes. But, he was the author of his own misfortune because if he hadn't refused to be represented by the lawyers provided by Legal Aid he may well have been acquitted. McEwen dignifies Henry's paranoid rants that blame everyone but himself.
