Another false allegation conviction successfully appealed
It is always very difficult trying to get a system which works and deals with identifying people who have committed crimes properly.
I have always felt that there is a difference in the evidential requirements for sanctions that involve long term imprisonment from those that say involve a small fine. What has happened is that the evidential reguirements for everything have shifted. These result in substantially more false convictions. Some of the worst false convictions are those of the mothers who were alleged to have killed their babies that died from SIDS.
These were situations that were really tragic for the mothers and then they were blamed for it and punished. Those people who were responsible for this situation should really be held to account.
