Charlie Ely Set Free In Seath Jackson Murder Case
On June 17 2020, the sentence of Charlie got changed to 10-year imprisonment and has received a lesser charge of second-degree murder. However, she has already spent a lot of time in jail, and her good behaviour resulted in the court setting her free. Her lawyer said, “People are entitled to due process, and she didn’t receive it at any stage of the game. It’s a bittersweet day. This court denied her, the appellate court denied her, and we had to take it to the Federal system for somebody to finally step up and say wait a minute, this can’t happen in the United States.”
