The Canadian Press Moving a Series on a Canadian Inmate in Florida


CP series on Canadian inmate in Florida

--

TORONTO - The Canadian Press has a series this week on a Canadian man convicted of first-degree murder in Florida nearly three decades ago, when he was 19 years old, for a crime he insists he did not commit. The Richmond Hill, Ont., man, now 48, is still serving life in a Florida prison, with a presumptive parole date of 2046.

The state of Florida has refused to transfer the inmate to Canada to serve out his sentence, despite Ottawa's approval. This is not an isolated case. Data collected by The Canadian Press -- some never published before -- show U.S. states, which are generally responsible for prosecuting violent crimes, are notoriously reluctant to let inmates transfer to finish their sentences in Canada.

Starting on Wednesday, The Canadian Press will move a multi-media package that looks into the case, from the man's troubled teen years to his arrest on murder charges to his conviction, which followed a potential death-penalty trial that lasted about seven hours.

Stories will carry the common slug Florida-Cda-Inmate and will be accompanied by audio -- including a mini-documentary -- photos, videos and interactive graphics.

An interactive multimedia presentation is available to online graphics subscribers to accompany the stories. Questions regarding interactive graphics or technical concerns should be directed to Megan Leach at CP Toronto (416) 507-2191 or megan.leach(at)thecanadianpress.com.

The series is designed to be used together in a weekend section, although one of the stories -- a look into the issues around Canadians incarcerated in U.S. prisons and their chances of being transferred to Canada -- stands on its own and can be used separately.

The series will include the following stories:

Canadian stuck in Florida prison for 30 years

TORONTO -- Almost three decades ago, a jury in Florida convicted a young Canadian misfit of gunning down an acquaintance after what was potentially a death-penalty trial that in essence lasted only seven hours. …
