Woman acquitted 329 years later

In a unique case, US lawmakers acquitted a woman who was sentenced to death for being a “witch” almost three and a half centuries ago.

In the US state of Massachusetts, in 1693, a woman who was sentenced to death in the ‘Slamwich Trial’ was legislated and acquitted.

The woman was sentenced to death along with other women in the state of Massachusetts on suspicion of being a “witch.”

The case is known as the “Salem Witch Trial”, in which at least 100 men and women were convicted of “witchcraft” at the time.
