After 10 years of fighting, Guy Paul Morin finally had his name cleared. Morin was first acquitted, then convicted of raping and killing his nine-year-old neighbor, Christine Jessop of Queensville, Ontario. Then, genetic tests proved to the court's satisfaction that Morin had nothing to do with the slaying. Twice before, in 1988 and 1992, Morin's defense initiated DNA testing, but the results were inconclusive. The last round of tests were conducted at the request of the Crown, which hoped that improved technology might allow the extraction of DNA from deteriorated semen stains found on Christine's underwear.
