Woman’s record expunged after being falsely accused of murder

Posted on October 24th, 2011 No Comments

A 29-year-old York City woman was charged with first-degree murder over 11 years ago. The case againstĀ  her was eventually dismissed, but the public records of her charges still existed. The woman has finally taken the necessary steps in order to expunge her record of the criminal charges.

The murder happened at a cross street that the woman happened to be driving by when she stopped to comfort the dying victim. She was named in the murder by an inmate who was looking for a way out of his own sentence. The woman spent nine months in jail facing death row before the court realized the statements didn’t match any evidence for the case.

Having a public record of these charges made it nearly impossible to find work. Now that her record has been completely expunged, she is hopeful that she can begin her life again.

The 29-year-old mother doesn’t regret stopping to help the man because she believes it was the right thing to do at theĀ  time.
