The daughter of the B.C. man who spent 27 years in prison for a series of sex crimes he didn’t commit has taken the stand in his compensation trial in downtown Vancouver.
Tanya Olivares was composed and very matter of fact in her answers.
But her words told a story about having her father imprisoned for such a horrific series of crimes, saying, “It was hard to watch him there. It took a long time to recover from each visit.”
She also said she did try to take her infant son to visit his grandfather in 1994, where he was strip-searched. She told the court she never took her son there again.
Henry is suing the city, the province and the federal crown for breaching his charter rights.
All three bodies are contesting his claim.
