Have you all heard of the Tracey Grissom case?

She was convicted and sentenced to 25 years in prison for gunning down her ex-husband.

According to the News, juror Janice Kelley said Grissom didn't get a fair trial because jurors weren't given the details of the rape and sodomy Grissom allegedly suffered at the hands of her ex-husband.

Strict limitations were in place during the trial to prevent attorneys on both sides of the case from discussing the alleged assault for which Hunter Grissom was charged in 2010. Those rules were lifted during the sentencing hearing, and the Tuscaloosa News reports that Tracey Grissom took the stand and told a packed courtroom about injuries she sustained during the sexual assault.

She said she had permanent rectal and vaginal damage after the alleged rape, and other sources, including a friend and a counselor for victims of domestic violence, said the alleged attack left Grissom scarred both physically and mentally.

The judge gave her just 25 years.
