SASKATOON - David Milgaard says he began to question his own innocence at times during his two decades unjustly behind bars.
Testifying via videotape at the inquiry into his wrongful murder conviction, Milgaard says prison played with his sanity.
He says he knew he was not guilty, but he began to doubt himself after being misdiagnosed with so many different psychological problems.
Milgaard appears calm on the tape and shows little anger about what happened to him.
He sympathizes with the friends who testified against him at his original trial, calling them ``victims.'' "
