"Exonerated" The Sabrina Butler Story
My service is to let the world know that sometimes the justice system gets it wrong. The death penalty does not deterr crime. My book is a tool to those who need some positivity in their lives and to know it is a light at the end of the tunnel and that light is GOD. Look at these faces we are some of the ones who the system failed ,we are the ones who almost lost our lives,but we are also the ones who fight to help end the death penalty. I work with witness to innocence and maybe we can come to your town,city or state. witness to innocence | 1501 Cherry St. | philadelphia, pa 19102 | 267.519.4584 | inf[email protected] us

Sabrina’s story is about a black woman who could not afford justice, and a system bent on scapegoating and winning by any means rather than seeking true justice. The state was determined to put her to death, but through faith and perseverance she claimed victory."
Witness to Innocence.
In 1989, Sabrina Butler charged with killing her 9-month-old son, went to trial and found guilty. The trial ended March 12, 1990. The court established her death date as July 2, 1990, by lethal injection. As all hope faded, God sent her help in the form of her mother, Roszalia Ellen, plus other key people. They helped to establish her innocence and she received a new trial. Sabrina served six and a half years behind bars. This included two years and nine months on death row – Dead woman walking. During the retrial in December 1995, she was found not guilty and set free. The years of shackles on her wrists, waist, and feet gave her the inspiration to write about her experience. Her book magnifies the disregard for the rights of the accused. In the U.S. 259 people, declared innocent while on death row. Sabrina was #59. She is the only woman exonerated in the United States. She has joined the ranks of others who are working to abolish the death penalty in the United States of America.
