Cassez was freed from a Mexican prison two days before following a Supreme Court ruling that police violated her rights by staging her arrest for kidnapping on national television seven years ago. After facing 60 years in jail, Cassez, 38, took a flight to Paris, hours after three of five justices voted for her immediate release in a case that had strained Franco-Mexican ties.
