Serving life for surviving abuse!

Kelly Savage was convicted with her husband Mark for the murder of her child. Yet she came home to find her child lifeless and called 911. She had suffered years of abuse leading up to the incident and was planning her escape with her children when this happened. Kamala Harris, California’s AG is opposing Kelly Savage’s habeas corpus application for a new trial where she makes the case that the evidence of her horrendous abuse was never put before the courts at her first trial. She has languished in jail for 19 years. Sad!
