<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">"The court unanimously holds that the conviction of Mr. Truscott was a miscarriage of justice and must be quashed. The court further holds that the appropriate remedy in this case is to enter an acquittal.<br><br>
"The court thus orders that Mr. Truscott should stand acquitted of the murder of Lynne Harper," the court ruled.<br><br>
Truscott was sentenced to hang in 1959 at age 14 for Harper's murder in Clinton, Ont., becoming Canada's youngest death-row inmate after one of the most famous trials in the country's history.</td>

I just watched his story on the "Fifth Estate", last night. WOW!<br><br>
I really hope he seeks some measure of compensation.
