Law and justice are not always one and the same. On the 27 November 1980, Peter Pringle waited in an Irish court to hear the following words:
‘Peter Pringle, for the crime of capital murder … the law prescribes only one penalty, and that penalty is death.’
The problem was that Peter did not commit this crime. Facing a sentence of death by hanging, Peter sought the inner strength and determination to survive. When his sentence was changed to forty years without remission he set out to prove his innocence.
Fifteen years later, he is finally a free man. This is his story.
