"I think it more likely that the families would have continued their efforts to demonstrate the men's innocence"
Which would have been a great comfort to the six innocent men, I'm sure!
As it was, they served seventeen years in prison for a crie they didn't commit.
The police were aware of the identity of the culprit, but did nothing to follow it up - it took a book, Error of Judgement, by M.P. Chris Mullins to free the men eventually
"I think the judge may have been wrong"
