In 1997, Suzy Mellen was sentenced to life without the possibility of parole (LWOP) for a crime she did not commit. Once in prison, she fell in love with Jesus and made the decision to serve women she met there. She held prayer meetings, volunteered as a Bible study leader, and participated in every spiritual activity she could. Suzy won the trust, respect, and admiration of other inmates. She refused to be defeated and became stronger in her faith and confidence. Suzy never gave up hope that one day someone would help reveal the truth. In 2014, seventeen years after she was convicted, a judge declared her factually innocent.
God reversed Suzy’s death sentence of LWOP. Now the time has come to tell her remarkable true story.
Suzy lives in Southern California and is the mother of three grown successful children and has three grandchildren.
