gould.usc.edu/about/news/?id=4155 Amw Capture 187 Hilda Riggs was released from prison on November 14,2014 for her part in the carjacking and murder of Jamie Bowie that her ex husband,AMW Capture 186 Billy Riggs still sits on death row for. She had tried to get a new trial based on battered spouse syndrome but it was rejected and she continued to serve her 25 to life sentence until she was paroled. Unlike other AMW cases of bad guys/gals being released,I don't have a problem with her release. Her claims of abuse are far more believable then the claims. of other AMW captures like Mona Volgares, Kashima Reddish or Wanda Barzee. She didn't actually pull the trigger in this case and wasn't the mastermind of the crime. There was a lengthy history of Billy being abusive to the women in his life and the DA's own expert acknowledged Hilda was a battered wife which IMO mitigates her punishment. She didn't deserve a 100% pass for her role in Jaime's murder but IMO,she has paid her debt with the time she served. One can only hope she makes the most of her second chance. She owes Jaime and the people who fought for her that.
