  1. As long as she’s not walking the streets.

  2. Now, I don’t believe she should be alone in this. Avis Banks’ boyfriend Pittman had something to do with it. His testimony was weak and even hinted he did. I’m at a loss. I thank god court tv had this case on. I don’t believe Carla Hughes acted alone.

  3. I’m my opinion Pittman is guilty of being a cheater and a womanizer. Other then that the murder was acted by Carla alone. Everyone says that the story does not make sense but why didn’t she speak on her behalf. An innocent person would expose the truth. In my opinion she was jealous and committed the crime in the spare of the moment. WTH was she thinking, borrowing a gun, and knife. She needs to speak and announce his innocence because it is not fair that he is being accused till this day for no reason.

  4. I believe the wrong person is locked up.

    • That woman did the crime. The feds pulled Kenyon Pittman cell phone records and while Cara Hughes murdered Avis Banks, records show proof Mr Pittman texting yet another woman. Cell towers don’t lie, forensic evidence to the hilt was performed. Carla is t in prison because she did it. Unfortunately there is no prison for a whore monger.

  5. If the wrong person is locked up, then justice is far from being served. But how can we know. There was more than enough evidence presented. And why not defend yourself unless you acted alone.

  6. How very typical of the justice system. A man convicted of the same crime would be on death row. Males are almost always given stiffer sentences than women for the same types of crimes.

  7. How can ANYONE believe she is not guilty? SHE had the WEAPONS and was at the location…No Brainer!! I just think it’s sad she would stoop to that level for someone who didn’t love her…Saaad

  8. Yes, this woman Carla acted alone. She hid her jealousy hoping Pittman would ( at the last minute ) would choose her to have a permanent relationship with and she blamed Avis for making Pittman dump her. She became delusional and laid in ambush for Avis. It didn’t concern her that she was about to also kill Avis’s unborn child. She calmly gunned Avis down as she desperately tried to escape with her life. Even more shocking than this woman letting her jealousy get her to this point was Carla’s mother who still insist her daughter is innocent. She says when it comes to Mr Pittman, women need to run the other way. Perhaps that is something she should have taught to Carla. This is not a fluke or an injustice. Carla Hughes knows she’s guilty and instead of trying to convince anyone of her false innocence, she should be accepting her guilt, confessing her sin and getting right with the Lord.
