It’s believed the death of Peter Ellis will not affect the Supreme Court bid to clear his name.
The convicted child sex offender died yesterday, two months before the court is scheduled to hear his appeal.
He’s always maintained his innocence, despite being found guilty of abusing children at a Christchurch creche in 1993.
I’m glad the appeal can continue.
I hope Peter can rest in peace without a conviction to his name. Time will tell.
