The Outcry for Justice in the Dennis Dechaine Case

Video Interviews with Dennis

Since his incarceration in Maine State Prison in 1988, Dennis Dechaine has been interviewed by the media many times. Some of those interviews were videotaped. In 2004, he talked with independent  filmmaker Richard Searls about his upbringing in Madawaska, his family, marriage, arrest, conviction and life in prison. In 2010, he was interviewed by Trevor Maxwell, then a reporter for the Portland Press Herald and Maine Sunday Telegram.
