David Bain
FameRank: 4

"David Cullen Bain" is a New Zealander who was convicted in May 1995 of the murders of his parents and siblings in Dunedin on 20 June 1994. Bain's case was taken up by former All blacks/All Black, Joe Karam, who was convinced that Bain was innocent. Karam wrote four books about the case and helped Bain through a long drawn out appeal process. In the end, Bain served 13½ years of a life imprisonment in New Zealand/life sentence before successfully appealing his original convictions to the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council/Privy Council in Britain in May 2007. Finding there had been a substantial miscarriage of justice, the Privy Council quashed his convictions and ordered a retrial. The second trial held in Christchurch ended with his acquittal on all charges in June 2009.

Speculation about the case continued long after Bain was acquitted, including whether or not he should receive compensation for the 13 years he spent in prison. Because of the high profile nature of the case, Justice Minister Simon Power appointed a respected Canadian jurist, Ian Binnie to review the circumstances and advise the Government on whether compensation should be paid. His report was subsequently rejected by the Government. By 2015, five years after Bain was found not guilty, no decision on compensation has been made.
