Donald Marshall, Jr., Mi'kmaq, was only seventeen when he was sentenced to life imprisonment--for a murder he did not commit. He spent eleven years in a maximum-security prison until, by a series of bizarre coincidences, the real murderer was discovered. Based on the true story of this tragic and controversial case as recorded in the best-selling book by Michael Harris, Justice Denied is a searing indictment of "white man's justice" that traces the dramatic events leading to Marshall's arrest, his trial and nightmarish prison ordeal.
