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. http://news.change.org/stories/raquel-nelson-offered-new-trial-following-outpouring-of-grassroots-support

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.
