From Morning Report, 7:16 am on 8 June 2022

Today, the Supreme Court is expected to quash the murder conviction of a man who fought for 37 years to clear his name.

It all started in 1985, when Alan Hall was found guilty of murder, and subsequently spent 19 years in prison.

In an extraordinary move, the Crown has admitted there was a miscarriage of justice.
