A case of police officer revenge and wrongful imprisonment

In 1991, Roseanne Beckett was convicted and sentenced to 12 years imprisonment for soliciting persons to murder her husband, Barry Catt, and for attempting to poison him. Beckett was also charged with assaulting and wounding her husband, perjury and drug possession. She was released in 2001, after serving 10 years of her sentence after a NSW court decided she had been falsely accused. Beckett was awarded $2.3 million in compensation for wrongful imprisonment.
