Mother Cleared Of Murder Charges Maintained Innocence
Prosecutor Drops Charges Citing Lack Of Evidence
Douglas said Tuesday that she had always maintained her innocence.
"It made me feel bad at first because I knew I was innocent of these charges and I didn't do anything wrong," Douglas said. "I've never been away from my kids. Every time you saw me, you saw my kids and this really did take something away from me."
"The results are questionable, the tests are questionable and because of that the case could not pass the muster of reasonable doubt," said Douglas' attorney Latrice Westbrooks.
Westbrooks said that a doctor prescribed an iron supplement for Kadarrius, which contained a small percentage of alcohol.
"When you receive your prescriptions the doctor prescribes, you go and get them filled, which is what Hattie did in this case," Westbrooks said.
Douglas said that her five children were taken away from her when she went to jail. She said she's looking forward to reuniting with them.
"Being with my kids, that's all I'm looking forward to," Douglas said.
Douglas' attorney plans to petition the Madison County Youth Court so Douglas can get regain custody of her children.
