Raymond Gilmour

Years in prison:
Year of crime:
Year conviction was overturned:

Raymond Gilmour confessed to the murder of 16 year old Pamela Hastie twice, but then retracted his confession. He claims this was the result of the pressure of interrogation and that he was attacked and threatened and began to question whether he had actually carried out the crime. His conviction was quashed on appeal when psychological evidence was introduced to suggest he was vulnerable and susceptible to falsely confessing and forensic evidence suggested the use of a knife or sharp object that was not mentioned in the confessions.
