Annette Hewis – Individual Award Nominee – 2000

Annette Hewis was wrongly convicted of arson in 1996 and jailed for 13 years; her conviction was quashed last year. She was planning to write a book about violence inflicted on her by the criminal justice system, but was so damaged by her experiences and exhausted by her ordeal that she has not yet recovered sufficiently to do so. Like Emma, her case demonstrates the extraordinary lack of care given to miscarriage of justice victims on their release from prison.
