Silk-Miller killer’s lawyer: “He’s prospectively innocent of this crime”
Claims of fake evidence have renewed doubt over the conviction of Jason Roberts of the 1998 murders of police officers Sergeant Gary Silk and Senior Constable Rodney Miller.
Roberts’ lawyer Rob Stary has told 3AW Breakfast the new allegations must be reviewed in court.
“We’re not asking him to be acquitted, we just saying that this evidence in its entirety needs to be reviewed by the Court of Appeal,” Mr Stary said.
“We’re talking about locking up a man who’s prospectively innocent of this crime, for the rest of his adult life and that’s just wrong.”
