Kensington, Maryland - April 24, 2016: Ruthann Aron Green offers candy to Connor Buss, 8, and his mother Kathi Buss, from Kensington. They're looking for a child's mystery book for Connor's book report due in one week.
Ruthann Aron Green's autobiography "Corrupted Justice -- A Killer Husband," is centered around the circumstances leading up to her being convicted of trying to pay for her husband's murder in 1996.
Former U.S. Senate candidate, lawyer and developer Ruthann Aron Green attempts to sell her autobiography "Corrupted Justice -- A Killer Husband," at the Kensington Book Festival in Kensington, Md., Sunday April 24, 2016.
In 1997 Aron Green was recorded by an undercover police officer, posing as a hit-man, soliciting the murder of her husband, a wealthy urologist, and another man. After a high-profile arrest, a mistrial, and a second court cases ending in a no-contest plea, she was jailed from 1997 to 2000 at the Montgomery County Detention Center. She blames her mental state on an abusive relationship with Barry Aron, her husband. “I had a psychotic break resulting from 30 years of abuse and over drugging of prescription drugs by my husband."
After years away from Montgomery County, she’s returned with a self-published autobiography as part of her campaign to re open her case and attempt to clear her name. If the case doesn’t go her way, she opens herself up to be convicted for attempted murder.
