Salvadoran Court Releases Woman Wrongfully Imprisoned

A Salvadoran woman wrongfully imprisoned after a miscarriage is being released, according to the San Salvador Third Tribunal of Sentences (Tribunal Tercero de Sentencia de San Salvador) ruling today. Serving three years of a 40 year sentence, Maria Teresa is suffering from serious health complications stemming from a kidney infection she developed prior to her miscarriage that was left untreated. In its decision, the court determined to absolve her and overturned her conviction.
