Thomas Campbell

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

Mr Campbell was convicted of two offences relating to “ice cream wars” in Glasgow. First, for attempted murder for shooting at Andrew Doyle’s car, and second for murder following the deaths of Andrew Doyle and five family members in a fire that was alleged to be started over a “turf war.” Petrol had been poured in the home of the Doyle family and set alight. Evidence from a leading psychologist cast doubt on a confession made by Mr. Campbell, noting it was unlikely the four officers detaining him would have identical recall of his statement.
