Guy Paul Morin
The wrongfully convicted also ended up in Kingston. Guy Paul Morin, who was tried twice for the 1984 killing of nine-year-old Christine Jessop, spent eight months in Kingston Penitentiary. He later thanked the judge who granted him bail for freeing him from “the nightmares of Kingston Penitentiary.”
DNA evidence exonerated him in 1995.
Convicted at the age of 14 in 1959 in the murder of his 12-year-old schoolmate Lynne Harper, he spent a decade in prison before being released on parole. Journalist Ron Haggart, who was at the Kingston Penitentiary to cover a riot in 1971 spoke to guards about Mr. Truscott. “They all thought he was the nicest kid they had ever met. And they all believed he was innocent.” His conviction was quashed in 2007.
