Raquel Nelson

UPDATE: Raquel Nelson has been released and offered a retrial!

Perhaps you heard about the Atlanta mother who was hit trying to cross the street?

One of her children died and now she is sentenced to 3 years in jail.

The driver (convicted of 2 previous hit-and-runs, legally blind in one eye, was drinking w/meds) received only 6 months in jail.

No crosswalk to be found at the crime scene.

Sign a petition to release the grieving mother here.
