Sorry about all you went through. I just found out about this story watching 48 hours on ID. I wish I would have known sooner to support you in your ordeal. I wish you and your family the best and prayers being sent your way. God bless you all. Lisa Montgomery (proud Army Wife and Soldier)

I have been following Michelle's case on TV (dateline, etc.) and online and was THRILLED when her conviction was overturned...
Why prosecutors would waste time and taxpayer-money on another trial is beyond me. I think Michelle has done SO much with her life since the alleged murder that even if she was in some way involved (which I doubt she was) she has proven herself to be a good a decent human being and contributing member of society - call it time served!
The only reason she was convicted in the first trial was because she spent some time as an exotic dancer. Women are always held over the coals (or whatever) if they were, at any time in their life, a stripper. Had she been a sales associate at Macy's or even 7-11, would the headlines shout, "store clerk plots murder!"
uhhhh, NO! they would just say "woman" or "girl" but do some exotic dancing and you are BRANDED for life, 'STRIPPER'
The media eats it up and unfortunately for Michelle, so do juries!
(I have never danced, but I feel bad for the women who are persecuted for it - especially the ones who go on to earn Master's Degrees)
Good Luck to Michelle and her family! I'll be praying your case gets thrown out permanently in the new year!!

There was a time I remained appalled and fascinated at some of the blog comments regarding this case . But then I noticed that many were locals who were inside for winter and probably needed something to pass the time . I do wish it were known among the HATERS that the issue with the movie reference wasn't only that it was thrown out as evidence. The witness/ apparently one "former stripper" who retained her credibility/ was found to be lying per her own personal journal. That bugs me. Anyway Sandy I hope your grown kids give you smooth sailing in the coming new year!

I have seen your story 3 times on 48 Hours ID. I am a 66-year old grandmother. I have always thought you were innocent. I still do. Please know that my prayers are with you and your wonderful family. I believe that the man that was convicted acted alone. I pray for you to be back with your family. I just wanted you to know that I believe you and I think Lepinnk set you up himself because of his disappointment. I believe that he was a sick and lonely man. I'm so sorry that you are having to deal with his mental troubles.

I've been following her case for several years and never believed she was guilty. I am very happy for her, her family, and her friends that she is out. Good luck to you, Mechele!

My hope for Mechele is that she will soon be able to move on with her life with her family who needs her, loves her, and wants her home. It is sad and scary that a person could be convicted on little or no evidence and then removed from the productive and happy life she was living. Watching the show on 48 Hours, I remember being astounded that she was actually convicted of murder and I agree with Karaleigh that she was unfairly judged at least in part because she used to be a dancer. I hope that Mechele's legal battles will soon be behind her and that she will be able to return home to her family soon!
