Cobb County GA: Release Grieving Mother of Hit-and-Run & Install a Crosswalk


UPDATE: Raquel Nelson has been offered the opportunity for a new trial to clear her name. Let's continue to support her until she is proved innocent of these charges in her son's death.

Raquel Nelson of metro Atlanta faces up to 3 years in jail after her child broke from her side and ran in front of a driver who may have been impaired. It was outrageous that a jury convicted her. It is more outrageous that the Solicitor prosecuted her to begin with.
