Indian women seek apology for spending years in prison
Three Indian women who were sent to prison in Mexico for alleged kidnapping have been released due to lack of evidence.

Alberta Alcantara Juan, Teresa Gonzalez Cornelio and Jacinta Francisco Marcial are members of the Otomi Tribe. They were convicted for allegedly holding federal agents prisoner during a protest at a traditional marketplace.

Juan and Cornelio spent almost four years in jail before the Mexico Supreme Court ruled on Wednesday that they were wrongly imprisoned. Marcial was freed last year after three years in prison.

Juan and Cornelio want the government to apologize but an official told the Associated Press that won't be happening.
