A British Columbia man is suing for damages after spending 27 years behind bars for crimes he didn't commit. Ivan Henry was convicted in 1983 for sexual assault before his acquittal in 2010. Henry's lawyer, John Laxton, says the B-C Court of Appeal concluded that no properly instructed jury would have convicted him. (Henry's daughter is scheduled to testify tomorrow. The trial is expected to last 100 days.)
