Atlanta Mother Spared Jail Time In Her Son's Death

Thanks to the people of Atlanta, women support groups, and a caring judge, Raquel Nelson, the Atlanta mother whose child was killed by a car (here), will not face any jail time. The mother who was convicted on misdemeanor charges in the death of her son will not face time. Judge Kathryn Tanksley sentenced the mother to 12 months probation and 40 hours community service. The judge also recommended Nelson seeks a new trial. This was good news to the crowd that came in support as they clapped loudly for the mother they felt had suffered enough. Read more (here).
