Description

On February 7th 1991, James Casey was found guilty of murder. He was sentenced to life imprisonment and is still in jail today. He is innocent… This short narrative will concentrate on a crazy error made by the judge while instructing the jury. The judge destroyed James Casey’s defence by saying, in relation to his principal argument, that ‘the logic of it escapes me…' This is not the only reason James Casey did not get a fair trial. To explore the many structural flaws in the Scottish Legal System, see https://fairtrialproject.org/.

"James Casey is Innocent - A Judge's Misdirection" by the Fair Trial Project highlights a crazy error made by a judge while instructing a jury during a case in 1991. The true story of this case is very compelling, and the company has done well to raise awareness! However, I would have loved to have seen a dramatic re-enactment, particularly surrounding the question of "who wore the white gloves?" Definitely some room for development here, but a very educational piece nonetheless.
