Wrongly Convicted Mother leaves Prison with Nothing



A mother who was wrongly convicted of murdering her two children has said she will never celebrate the decision to overturn her convictions. Donna Anthony told the Daily Mirror she was treated as the “worst of the worst” in prison and had “nothing left”. The Appeal Court said her convictions, for which she had served six years of a life sentence, were unsafe. On Monday a judge said evidence at her trial from Professor Sir Roy Meadow had been “significantly undermined”. Ms Anthony told the Mirror: “What I have now is nothing to what I’ve lost. I’ve lost my mum, my children and my friends. “I’ll never celebrate. I have tears and anger inside me screaming to come out.”
