Rape conviction overturned for man who spent 17 years in prison

“I was innocent and they finally listened”. Andrew Malkinson has spent 20 years trying to clear his name, 17 of them in prison for a rape he did not commit.

Today Mr Malkinson finally had his conviction quashed by the Court of Appeal. The police have apologised for what they called a “grave miscarriage of justice”,  but Mr Malkinson said his years behind bars had left a gaping black hole in his life.
