(CNN) -- A 14-year-old Pakistani girl who had faced life in prison for allegedly burning the Quran will have her case heard in juvenile court, the girl's lawyer told CNN.

A local court ordered the transfer on Monday, Tahir Naveed Choudhry said.

Pakistani police told CNN their investigation concluded Rimsha Masih is innocent and was framed by an imam.

These developments could mark an end to the Christian teen's nightmare since she was accused of blasphemy in August.

"This is a precursor to the case ending, and that is quite unprecedented in the 25-year history of Pakistan's blasphemy laws," said Ali Dayan Hasan, the Pakistan director of Human Rights Watch.

"There was no legal evidence against Rimsha," officer Munir Jafri told CNN.

While this appears to be good news, the Pakistani Christian girl is not free and clear as yet. As the Pakistan director of Human Rights Watch notes, 52 accused blasphemers, like Rimsha, have been killed while facing trial on the charge.

"She is certainly in grave danger," he said. "It's the accusation that endangers your life, and can endure."

These pious Muslims will kill on no more than an accusation but we Americans are intolerant religious bigots because we permitted a short video that insults the “Prophet” to be seen on Utube.

Liberalism is a mental disorder.

In that part of the world bribes determine the outcome of most court cases.
