Margaret Moore

After many years of unspeakable abuse by her husband, Margaret Moore participated in a conspiracy to murder him and was sentenced to life without parole for her role in the crime.

In 2002, following an investigation and corroboration of the abuse, USC law students successfully advocated for the Board of Parole Hearings to remand her case for resentencing where she regained the possibility of parole.

After serving more than 25 years in prison as a model inmate, she was released on parole in 2009.
