    In 2001, members of Baker's family petitioned to have a pardon granted by the Georgia Board of Pardons and Paroles, seeing the original verdict as racist.[1] This was granted in 2005, with the Parole Board granting her a full and unconditional pardon,[7] suggesting a verdict of manslaughter, which would have carried a 15-year sentence.[1][8]

    So does that mean they reduced her conviction after she was long gone?
