Steven Truscott was sentenced to hang in 1959 at the age of 14 for the murder of Lynn Harper, a 12-year old girl. He was Canada's youngest death-row inmate and his trial was one of the most famous and controversial in Canadian history. His sentence was commuted and after spending 10 years behind bars he disappeared to live an anonymous life in southern Ontario. But Truscott himself remained silent until publicly proclaiming his innocence for the first time on the Fifth estate in March 2000. Since then a growing number of people have become persuaded that Truscott was a victim of the justice system; that police and prosecutors raced to judgment and ignored other theories and suspects and callously sent a 14-year-old to jail. The campaign to exonerate Steven Truscott has now reached the federal justice minister's office

Steven Truscott : his word against history + update( Visual )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1959, when a 12-year-old girl disappeared, an investigation lasting less than two days and a trial of less than two weeks sent a 14-year-old schoolboy to prison. Steven Truscott's murder trial was the most famous, infamous and one of the most disputed child criminal cases in Canadian legal history. His death sentence was commuted, but he spent 10 years in prison and is still a murderer in the eyes of the justice system. This award-winning documentary uncovers some astonishing new evidence, which raises disturbing questions about the integrity of the murder investigation and the fairness of his trial. Was the verdict just? Key scenes are re-created, based on verbatim accounts of witnesses and from military, police and archival documents. The program concludes with an update revealing how people close to the case came forward after the original broadcast of this program with important new information
Moment of Truth : Steven Truscott Update( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For more than 45 years, the murder of teenager Lynn Harper and the fate of the boy convicted of her killing, Steven Truscott, has haunted this country. At the age of 14, Steven Truscott was sentenced to hang for the crime. After 10 years behind bars, his sentence was commuted and Truscott disappeared in anonymity, living under another name in southern Ontario. But lingering doubts about Truscott’s trial and details around the murder never went away. Several years ago, The Fifth Estate uncovered evidence that showed the case against Truscott was dubious at best. In an exclusive interview, Canada finally saw the man Truscott had become — a hardworking, dedicated father and grandfather, surrounded by people who passionately believe in his innocence. Now, Truscott faces what may be his final battle to clear his name; his conviction is before an appeals court and The Fifth Estate updates its coverage of one of the most famous and controversial stories in Canadian history
