Wendy Crompton's son William and his girlfriend Fiona were killed in a horrendous attack by a young man when William was just 18 years old. Justice for William shares Wendy's experience of what followed the murders when, as a secondary victim, she was treated in ways that ranged from insensitivity to downright prejudice and lack of respect. She was kept 'out of the loop' that is the criminal justice system, causing her anxiety, stress, and mistrust of everyone from the police, paramedics and the psychiatrists, to the coroner's officer who prevented her from kissing William goodbye and ejected her from the mortuary. Furthermore, the doctors could not satisfactorily explain why they had released her son's killer, the detective said that her son was better off dead than alive, and the funeral director told her "You can't afford flowers."

‘I would have been the first miscarriage of justice… There was this spate of cases: the Birmingham Six, Guildford Four and Cardiff Three. Each one was another nail in my coffin’: Tony Stock, 2008. The story of Tony Stock is astonishing: deeply disturbing it sent out ripples of disquiet when he was sentenced to ten years for robbery at Leeds Assizes in 1970. Over the next 40 years the case went to the Court of Appeal four times and has the distinction of being the first to have been referred to that court twice by the Criminal Cases Review Commission. Tony Stock died in 2012 still fighting to clear his name: spending from his meagre savings to hire private investigators and hoping beyond hope to see justice. Reviews ‘The story of Tony Stock should be mandatory reading for everyone, not merely those involved with the laws. It concerns the quality of our criminal justice system and its serious reluctance and unwillingness to root out injustice’: Michael Mansfield QC. ‘One of the most outrageous miscarriages of justice of modern times’: Barry Sheerman, Labour MP for Huddersfield. In the Press ‘If anyone seriously believes the Court of Appeal has reformed itself since the dark days of the Birmingham Six and Bridgewater Four, they should study the unreported and amazing case of Tony Stock’: Private Eye. ‘I would have thought that the injustice done to Tony (Stock) was fairly self-evident and yet his conviction still stands. I find this very difficult to accept’: Ralph Barrington, investigations adviser at the Criminal Cases Review Commission. ‘The fight for justice that will not die’: Yorkshire Post.
