Innocence Ottawa would like to invite you to join us for our Third Annual Conference on March 23rd, 2016. This year's event "Guilty Until Proven Innocent: The Process & Challenges of Establishing Innocence" will include the presentations of three special guest speakers who have agreed to share their experiences with us in an effort to raise awareness on issues surrounding miscarriages of justice!
In support of our work to help individuals who have been wrongfully convicted, Innocence Ottawa is honoured to present John Artis, who was charged alongside Rubin 'Hurricane' Carter in 1966 with the murder of three white men in Patterson, New Jersey. Artis spent 15 years in prison for a crime he did not commit.
We are also pleased to have Kerry Scullion, Director and General Counsel to the Criminal Conviction Review Group, speak to his years of experience directly linked to the process faced by individuals who seek formal remedy, under section 696.1 of the Criminal Code, in Canada.
Last but not least, Trevor Brown of Greenspon Brown & Associates kindly accepted our request to add his legal expertise to the panel and present his knowledge on the challenges related to miscarriages of justice and wrongful conviction as experienced by criminal defence attorneys and their clients.
The event will be hosted at Fauteux Hall (Room 302), home to the Faculty of Law, on the University of Ottawa Campus at 57 Louis Pasteur from 7:00 to 9:00pm.
Refreshments will be served.
We are hoping to see you there and please feel free to forward this invitation to anyone you know who may be interested in joining us for this very special evening!
