“A Mormon mother of seven who was jailed in Mexico on drug smuggling charges has walked free from jail after a surveillance video cleared her of transporting marijuana.
Yanira Maldonado was greeted by well-wishers as she left the lockup on the outskirts of Nogales and hugged her husband, Gary, as officials closed the jail doors behind her.
'She lived through a nightmare,' said her attorney, Jose Francisco Benitez Paz.
Maldonado was arrested by the Mexican military last week after they found nearly 12 pounds (5.4 kilograms) of pot under her seat on the commercial bus traveling from Mexico to Arizona….”

Never doubt the power of prayer.
