A Nevada woman who was twice convicted of a 2001 killing and sexual mutilation that she insisted happened when she was more than 150 miles away was freed Wednesday from a Las Vegas jail — five days after her exoneration and release from prison.
Kirstin Blaise Lobato was 18 when she was first arrested and is 35 now. She was released from the Clark County Detention Center hours after a judge credited her with time already served and waived a one-year misdemeanor sentence in a prisoner sexual contact case.
“I feel overwhelmed. I feel excited. I feel grateful,” Lobato said after hugging a longtime supporter and friend, Michelle Ravell, and greeting several attorneys who worked on her case.
“I’m just so happy and I’m ready to go,” Lobato said, heading to Ravell’s car outside the jail.
Ravell called Lobato’s release “a dream come true and the

BURTON, MI – A $50,000 reward has been offered for anyone who provides information that will lead to the exoneration of a former Burton man sentenced to life in prison for a St. Clair County murder that took place more than 30 years ago.
Temujin Kensu is offering up to $25,000 and his attorneys will match that amount for credible information about the Nov. 5, 1986, slaying of Scott Macklem in a parking lot at St. Clair Community College in Port Huron.
A Burton native, Kensu was formerly known as Frederick Freeman. He has maintained his innocence and has been fighting to get his conviction and life sentence overturned.
David Sanders of the Proving Innocence project at the University of Michigan says Kensu is using money he won in a lawsuit against the Michigan Department of Corrections
