Presentation: The Boy on the Bicycle: A Forgotten Case of Wrongful Conviction in Toronto

“Nate Hendley spoke [October 19/2018] at the LIFE Institute at Ryerson University. He was invited to discuss his recent book, The Boy on the Bicycle. Nate spoke passionately as he knows the individual who was wrongfully convicted. He was, therefore, able to give a personal perspective on the case from those involved in addition to the well-researched written material in the book. His lecture generated many intelligent questions about induced confessions and the wrongfully convicted. Nate would be a welcome lecturer in the future at the LIFE Institute.” —Sandy Kingston, LIFE Institute, Course Coordinator

“Nate Hendley spoke April 30, 2019 at our Probus club meeting about his latest book, The Boy on the Bicycle, a story of the wrongful conviction of a minor. This was the second time that Nate has presented to our Probus club. Once again, we found that his topic was very well-researched and this story to be an unsettling look at the injustice of wrongful convictions. Nate has a powerful and compelling presentation style.” —Kerry Long, Probus Club of Kitchener Waterloo, Ontario
