Kevin is Innocent!
Seeking Justice for Kevin O'Neill
Justice for Kevin O'Neill
The Appeal Process
Case For Concern
What can I do?
It is a scandal that 16 years on from his conviction no appeal has been lodged with the Court of Appeal. It is immediately apparent to any lay person that the police interviews with Kevin are unreliable: they are the only evidence against him. The jury were not aware of his linguistic disability, his "hidden handicap" . Nor were they made aware of a number of irregular aspects of the police investigation. Had they been made aware of these matters, they would not have been able to convict Kevin "beyond reasonable doubt".
Had professionals involved in 1994 properly appreciated the affect of Kevin's learning difficulties on the case they would surely have lodged an appeal immediately. As it is another eight years has dragged whilst even more evidence gathers and points to the ever-growing injustice that Kevin suffers. Kevin is a man of both great ability and disability who should not be in prison today because first and foremost he is innocent of this crime of which he is convicted.
