Well, I hope she is not executed for the charges against her - she was accused of insulting prophet Muhammad and in Pakistan, such speech carries the death penalty.
Unfortunately, if she were freed (unlikely), 80% of Pakistan's population would still like to see her dead. I can't imagine that she would be safe if she were to be acquitted of the charges - nor would any Christian community in Pakistan who takes her in.

The family of a Pakistani Christian woman sentenced to death for blasphemy is appealing the verdict with the Lahore High Court. Asia Bibi, a mother of two and field hand, was sentenced to death for allegedly making slanderous remarks about the Prophet Muhammad.
Blasphemy is a capital offense under Pakistani law. Bibi is the first Christian woman in Pakistan to be sentenced to death for blasphemy. Yet her guilt is questionable.
One report claims Bibi's neighbors objected to an infidel touching the communal water bowl and approached a cleric, claiming she had insulted the Prophet.
Another report claims some of the women workers had reportedly been pressuring Bibi to renounce her Christian faith and accept Islam. During the discussion, Bibi responded by speaking of how Jesus had died on the cross for the sins of mankind and asking the Muslim women what Muhammad had done for them.
The Muslim women took offence and began to beat Bibi and she was locked in a room by some men. A mob reportedly formed and “violently abused” her and her children. [A mob doesn't form? Now that would be a story - event horizon]
What ever the case, last week Bibi was found guilty of committing blasphemy against her fellow farm workers in the village of Ittanwali during a heated discussion about religion in June last year, and now her family is appealing that conviction.
Anti-Christian sentiment runs high in Pakistan. There are reports of Muslim relief agencies discriminating against Christians while distributing aid to people affected by last summer's devastating floods.
To learn more of Islam's stance regarding those who insult prophets, please see the following thread:
In it, are the rulings of Muslim scholars and a saying from the times of Muhammad where a Jewish slave girl was stabbed in the stomach by her Muslim master after she repeatedly insulted Muhammad.
Muhammad learned of the death of a Jewish slave girl and asked the slave master to give blood money for her death, but after learning that Muhammad was being insulted by the slave, he declared that no money is to be paid for her. In other words, it was 'ok' that the master stabbed his slave girl to death over a few insults.
There are so many things wrong with that story that I wouldn't know where to begin. But suffice it to say that most Muslims agree with the contents of the story and that mostly explains the current situation we're in.
