Description de l’éditeur
In the style of literary non-fiction comes a compelling, true story that will appeal to mystery, crime and “CSI” aficionados and anyone interested in justice for all in the midst of cultural diversity.
On 21st July 2008, 21-year-old Somali, Farah Jama was sentenced to six years behind bars for the rape of a middle-aged woman as she lay unconscious in a Melbourne nightclub.
Throughout the trial Jama had maintained his innocence against the accusations he committed such a predatory, heinous crime. But the Prosecution had one ‘rock solid’ piece of evidence that nailed the accused––his DNA.
Nearly 18 months after Jama’s incarceration, his conviction was overturned when a mother’s profound faith in her son’s innocence, a prosecutor’s tenacious pursuit of truth and justice and a defence lawyer’s belief in his client, brought forth revelations that overturned one of the worst miscarriages of justice in Victorian legal history.
