Wood v R

Posted: February 26, 2012 in Uncategorized

Now here is the full judgment in which the Criminal Court of Appeal in Sydney NSW finds Mr Gordon Wood innocent. Mr Wood spent 3.5 years in jail for a crime he didn’t commit. The Court also tells the truth about the original crown case which sent Mr Wood to jail. Justice McClellan went on to say: “My evaluation of the whole of the evidence satisfies me that the jury’s verdict cannot be supported. I am not satisfied beyond reasonable doubt of the applicant’s guilt.” He also said, “The suggested evidence of a motive involving Rivkin is so thin that it should never have been left with the jury.”
