After making a deal with the prosecutors, Mary Ann agreed to testify against Mel in exchange for a 1 to 5 years charge of tampering with evidence.
After a two week trial, the jury came back with a verdict: NOT GUILTY. Mel was acquitted of all charges. While Mel was able to walk free, Mary Ann was forced to due five years under her plea agreement.
