Innocence McGill will welcome David Milgaard and Peter Edwards as speakers for the group’s annual conference taking place on Feb. 12, 2013 from 6-7:30 p.m. at the McGill Faculty of Law.
A reception will follow immediately after the event.
In 1970, David Milgaard was sentenced to life in prison by a Saskatchewan court for a murder he did not commit. He was finally released in 1992 after spending 22 years behind bars. He will be sharing his story.
Peter Edwards is a journalist with the Toronto Star who has covered multiple wrongful convictions throughout his career. He is the co-author of Joyce Milgaard’s memoir A Mother’s Story: The Fight To Free My Son David and the author of The Bandido Massacre among others. He will be discussing wrongful convictions in Canada from a reporter’s perspective.
