"American Violet"

“American Violet” is a film based on the true story of Regina Kelly. In 2000, Regina Kelly, a mother of four, was falsely accused of delivering a controlled substance in a “drug free school zone.” Giving the option to plead guilty and accept 10 years of probation for a crime she did not commit, Regina instead took a stand and decided to take on the Texas justice system to clear her name. With the possibility of facing up to 99 years in prison, Regina was determined to be victorious. “American Violet” will be released in select theaters this Friday. Check out the film’s trailer below.
