Description: For nearly three decades, Joyce Milgaard told anyone who would listen that her son David was an innocent man trapped in a nightmare, sentenced to life in prison at age seventeen for a rape and murder he did not commit. From the time David was imprisoned in 1970, Joyce Milgaard pleaded with prime ministers, justice ministers, lawyers, scientists, church groups, police and the media to achieve her son's freedom. Finally, David was released from prison in 1992, and in the summer of 1997, his name was cleared. DNA testing conducted in a laboratory in England conclusively proved what Joyce had always maintained -- that her son was the victim of a gross injustice when he was convicted and imprisoned for the murder of nursing aide Gail Miller of Saskatoon. Joyce Milgaard's first-person story is an inspiring example of the unbreakable bond between a mother and her child, an illustration of the supportive strength of religious faith, and an empowering victory for the human spirit.
