It’s been a year and a half since Barbara Sheehan was acquitted for killing her husband, a retired NYPD sergeant.

She admits to firing 11 shots at him as she was fleeing the home they shared with their two children to escape the decades of violence she had suffered at his hands.

Now faced with five years in prison on weapon charges, Sheehan has decided to speak out.
