    THANK YOU for caring and helping innocent people regain their freedom. WHY DOESN’T THE REGULAR PRESS DO GOOD THINGS LIKE YOU FOLKS DO??? We people who care about others appreciate you! I did sign up to receive your emails already.

    So thankful that there are people like you who fight for the freedom of those incarcerated wrongfully. I’m waiting for the day for my son to fight and win his appeal. So I wish you all the luck and blessings for all that you’ve done and continue to do.
