A Georgia mother given probation in her son's jaywalking death says she's satisfied with the outcome of her sentencing hearing.
Raquel Nelson was given the sentence at a hearing Tuesday, but the judge also offered her the rare chance to clear her name at a new trial. Her current sentence also includes 40 hours of community service.
After the hearing, Nelson said: "I'm walking out of here. I don't feel like I can be more satisfied."
Nelson also thanked her supporters.
Her attorney David Savoy said they plan to take the judge up on the offer of a new trial.
The woman and her children were crossing a street in Marietta in April when the death occurred.
