Woman Falsely Accused of Murder to be Released from Nevada Prison After 17 Years After Being Exonerated

A Nevada judge has ruled that a woman held in prison for 17 years after being falsely convicted of murder should be freed now that she has been exonerated. Utah recently passed a law in 2008 allowing for people to prove they are factually innocent of a crime for which they have been wrongfully convicted.  The law allows an unspecified amount of restitution to people who have been wrongfully convicted, imprisoned for years, and then exonerated or proven to be innocent.  The woman, Debra Brown, has missed seeing her children and grandchildren grow up.  Therefore she is looking forward to the prospect of being released today after her exoneration, that is being released the day after Mother’s Day.  Brown did admit to forging checks belonging to the victim after he died, but she has maintained her innocence of the murder charge all along.

What to Do If You Have Been Charged with a Criminal Offense

Getting falsely accused of domestic violence in Minnesota may put you at risk of losing your job, custody of your children, or even your home. You may face criminal charges and the accusation may damage your reputation in the community, as people will now view you as an abuser. False domestic violence accusations often happen when couples are in a contentious relationship with a risk of divorce.
The top reasons for license suspension in Minnesota include driving under the influence of alcohol, repeated traffic violations, and failure to appear in court or pay fines. Failure to pay child support, criminal convictions and felonies, medical conditions/disabilities, and drag racing can also lead to license suspension. The suspension takes away your driving privileges, preventing you from driving legally.
Motorists arrested for allegedly driving while impaired might wonder, “Can you refuse a breathalyzer?” In Minnesota, the implied consent law requires a person licensed to drive, control, or operate a vehicle to agree to a chemical test to check for alcohol or other intoxicants in that person’s body. Refusing to submit to a breathalyzer or another chemical test is a crime, often charged as a gross misdemeanor.
