ODESSA – A federal judge won't put an Odessa woman back behind bars.

Attorneys for Yolanda Madden tell NewsWest 9, prosecutors asked Judge Robert Junell to reconsider his ruling that set Madden free.

Madden was released from prison, just before Christmas, after serving several years behind bars on drug charges.

A new trial was ordered, after it was found some evidence was excluded.

Madden claims she was set up and the drugs were planted on her.

Her new trial date has been set for May 3rd in midland's federal court.
