Wrongful Conviction: Discussion Panel
Join legal academic and researcher Dr. Robert Moles, artist Sky Parra and special guests as they delve into the history of wrongful convictions in Australia.
Dr Robert (Bob) Moles is a legal academic and researcher well known for his expertise and writings on legal theory and miscarriages of justice.
Join us for an evening of discussion, as Bob and special guests, provide insight into the tragedy of wrongful convictions.
What circumstances and systems allowed these miscarriages of justice to occur?
Who are the people involved in setting things right?
If these appeals were successful how many more might still be wrongfully imprisoned?
Be engaged as artist Sky Parra shares the inspiration behind her new exhibition ‘Denied: Portraits of Wrongful Conviction’, as she introduces you to the human face of the unjustly imprisoned.
Hear from John Button, who was imprisoned at Fremantle Prison after being wrongfully convicted of the manslaughter of his girlfriend after she was murdered on his 19th birthday on 9 February 1963 by serial killer Eric Edgar Cooke.
Light refreshments included.
