shaquanda cotton: home free

In March, we brought you the story of 15-year-old Shaquanda Cotton who was locked away in the TYC for shoving a hall monitor at her school in Paris, Texas.

We also let you know that after the story broke, Shaquanda Cotton was to be released from the TYC.

We are happy to report that Shaquanda Cotton is safe at home, according to Grits for Breakfast and Dallas South Blog. Above is a video of Cotton's release from the youth jail, and a happy reunion with her mother.

Apparently, Cotton will go back to school and study to become a lawyer to help prevent further miscarriages of justice like the one she was forced to endure.
