Man’s bid to get off death row
20 Years on Death Row, SBS, Sunday at 8.30pm
IN JUNE 1996, long-distance truck driver Keith Doolin (pictured) was sentenced to death for two murders and four attempted murders on six female sex workers.
But with a defence attorney who was later disbarred and a key witness later convicted of murder, did Doolin get a fair trial?
Follow Doolin’s case from start to finish, examining the victims, the police, and legal players, as well as Doolin himself, who has always maintained his innocence.
This week, the investigation examines the different testimonies presented at the 1996 trial. New evidence has come to light that might help overturn the conviction, but time is running out for the man who has spent 20 years on San Quentin State Prison’s death row.
