Dani pleaded not guilty and proved her innocence

Shortly after the incident, Miskell’s defense attorney, Heather Jackson, filed her client not guilty of the charges. The reports said that she acted in self-defense. Miskell even took out a restraining order against her guy under civil petition for relief from domestic abuse. Her allegations said that he had put her in a chokehold, slammed her body, and threatened to kill her.

Dani was wrongfully arrested and thrown into Waterloo’s criminal justice system. But she fought for her life. After taking the case to trial, she testified against 8 witnesses the state brought against her. And finally, on May 27, the jury found her not guilty. She thanked her attorney for defending her the whole way.

She expressed on her Instagram how this experience made her feel. She said that she was publicly humiliated by the local papers, radio stations, and social media. She added that she even received hate emails and private messages. Besides facing public hatred, her job as a news anchor was also removed.

Everything was coming so brutal to her that she ultimately broke down. She called it one of the cruelest experiences a woman could ever go through.

She calls herself a survivor. She is also letting her followers know that she will be coming out with more of her story soon.
