The case was the subject of an NBC Dateline called "A Touch of Evil". Ray Smith, who is now an adult but was six at the time recanted his testimony and explained how it was extracted from him by Scott Lyfeld, the "Special Prosecutor" who led what was called "The Team" and created the case.

Paul Bernardo Just before Christmas, 2001, when no one was paying attention, the infamous videotapes depicting sex killer Paul Bernardo and Karla Homolka's vicious rape and torture of schoolgirls Kristen French and Leslie Mahaffy were incinerated by court order. Future historians will have to speculate about just how demented Paul Bernardo and Karla Homolka really were. An exercise kind of like speculating on how awful Auschwitz was. Except to holocaust deniers like Ernst Zundel, we can point to the evidence. Bernardo dad: Karla got away with murder

Dominic McCullock, 23, was convicted in 2004 of second-degree murder and sentenced to life in prison with no eligibility for parole for 15 years. He has maintained his innocence and is appealing his conviction. The trial heard that DNA found in blood on Wheeler's jacket and apartment door handles matched McCullock's, and a pubic hair stuck in dried blood on Wheeler's arm matched his.

Peter Reilly Peter Reilly found his mother's severely battered body on the floor of their cottage. Police immediately found his demeanor odd and whisked him away. A failed polygraph examination solidified investigators' belief that he attacked his mother, and used the findings as a hammer during an 8-hour interrogation. A jury convicted him of first-degree manslaughter in 1974. He was exonerated after it was disclosed prosecutors improperly withheld an auxiliary trooper's statement which placed him far from the crime scene at about the time of the murder. A judge concluded "a grave injustice" had been committed and vacated the conviction with prejudice, meaning Reilly could never be retried for the still unsolved crime.

Ron and Linda Sterling Ron and Linda Sterling were the key figures in the Martensville case, the most infamous sexual abuse trial ever held in Saskatchewan.

Our life can never be normal. We've lost two years of our lives. I used to have great faith in the justice system."

He was released from prison after almost seven years, when DNA evidence indicated he did not commit the crime. The Crown's case focused on a jailhouse informant who was later charged with perjury. The snitch said police had put pressure on him to make a false statement.

Robert Mailman Robert Mailman and Walter Gillespie were sentenced to life largely on testimony of a 16-year old who now admits he lied, claiming pressure by police and was paid "living allowance" in the weeks leading to the trial. A second witness agreed to testify against them after the murder charge against her was dropped on the eve of trial. The first trial ended in a hung jury. Both had an alibi putting them elsewhere around the time the victim was killed. Information favourable to the accused was not disclosed. Detectives admit acting only on "suspicion" and had no "concrete" evidence. A senior detective who worked closely on the case says other detectives were "a little bit overzealous".

Jody Druken Jody Druken: was cleared Sunday of a first-degree murder charge, and the lesser and included offence of second-degree murder, after a Supreme Court jury deliberated over nearly four days. He had been charged in connection with the death of his brother, Derek Druken, who was shot twice in a downtown parking lot in broad daylight. Having initially confessed to the crime, Jody Druken had been in custody since the death despite later withdrawing his confession.

Theresa Olson Theresa Olson: public defender for Sebastian Burns was suspended for two years after a jail-sex romp. Two justices dissented, arguing that the suspension was too harsh in part because there was "no evidence" sexual relations had occurred - citing a dictionary definition of "coitus" which refers only to male-female vaginal intercourse - even though guards outside a jail conference room claimed, under oath, they had seen her having sex with her client. In 2003, the Supreme Court rejected the bar's recommendation for a one-year suspension. In addition, Olson must undergo a psychological evaluation before she can be reinstated.
