Nevada woman cleared in 2001 slaying goes free in Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS — 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 end of
