In 1988, Ron Dalton’s wife, Brenda, choked on dry cereal and rushed to the hospital. There, activities of an inexperienced student doctor contributed to her death. Within 24 hours, an autopsy performed by an inexperienced pathologist concluded that Brenda died of strangulation. Ron was arrested and charged with her murder. He then was convicted of 2nd-degree murder, sentenced to life imprisonment and spent his next eight-plus years fighting for an appeal from a maximum security penitentiary. The Court granted his appeal and he was released on bail. He immediately a challenge his wrongful conviction, which led to a Public Inquiry into his case. A second trial resulted in Ron being acquitted. Since his acquittal, Ron has been involved in helping wrongly convicted individuals clear their names and has assisted them re-integrate back into society. He is self-employed as an accountant and bookkeeper. Ron is a Director of the Canada-based Assoc in Defence of the Wrongly Convicted.
