Arizona Mom Released From Mexico Jail

Yanira Maldonado, the Arizona mother held for more than a week in a Mexico jail on suspicion of drug smuggling, was released late Thursday after the case against her was dismissed.

The mother-of-seven, from Goodyear, Ariz., would return immediately to the United States, her lawyer Jose Francisco Benitez Paz said.

“Many thanks to everyone, especially my God who let me go free, my family, my children, who with their help, I was able to survive this test,” she told reporters.
