An innocent 74-year-old woman was recently freed from over 32 years behind bars, for a crime she never committed.

Mary Jones was sentenced for a murder in Los Angeles, California. She was released Monday afternoon, following a Judge being given new evidence which proved she was forced by her abusive boyfriend back then, to participate in a crime.

After having already served more than the minimum life-sentence (when parole is factored in), she pleaded no contest to a lesser charge of manslaughter.

Mary has been endearingly known as “Mother Mary” to her friends and family. She was represented by law students who volunteered from the University of Southern California’s Post-Conviction Justice Project.

Family members cried tears of joy when the decision was read:

“She knew this day was coming, even when we doubted it, she knew this day was coming,” Denetra Jones-Goodie, Mary’s daughter, told local NBC Los Angeles.

“I’m so excited, emotions can’t express the way I feel right now.”
