Innocence McGill Conference 2014 featuring Mr. Michel Dumont and Ms. Danielle Dansereau
In 1991, Mr Michel Dumont, a local Quebecois man, was wrongfully convicted for a sexual assault he did not commit. He spent three years behind bars, and with the help of family members who never gave up on this fight, he was exonerated in 2001. He will be sharing his story.
Ms Danielle Dansereau is the screenwriter of 'L'affaire Dumont,' a movie that chronicles the wrongful conviction of Mr Michel Dumont. She will be discussing her experiences writing the screenplay, and she will share her insights regarding wrongful convictions in Canada from a film inspired perspective.
The event will be moderated by Justice Carol Cohen of the Quebec Superior Court.
