My Daughter Has Felony Drug Convictions Now What?

I guess its just me but things always seems easier, better, right- at my parents house. Well, before my mom died that is. I remember feeling like that at my grandparents too. Its like its some kind of a magic place. A place where nothing bad happens, where you have everything you'll ever need and theres nothing to do all day but enjoy life. I get that feeling now when I visit my Aunt Stephanie. She is my mothers siter and sometimes I feel like the only family I have left.

I got a request from the ICM lit agency. I almost deleted it. I thought it was spam because it said from "intern" . I guess I should have figured that.

I didnt even remember that I had queried them. It was back in Feb. They asked for a synopsis and sample chapter. I sent it.Who knows.

I am also attempting to put together another newsletter. If anyone would like to contribute with a poem, drawing, essay or article feel free to contact me. They are particularly interested in stuff like crochet, cross stich , book reviews, travel articles etc.
I have had the pleasure of talking with Chief Chrismon of the Murfreesboro police dept. I have been emailing him and playing phone tag for months with this gentlman trying to get the info I need about Judy Neelleys mom and some accusations of contributing to a minor.
I was finally able to reach him and although he told me that the investigator who was on staff at the time of her arrest is still available- he doesnt want to talk with me, but he did tell me all the things Ill need to do to go through all the old court records.
Cathy Lynn Henderson has received another stay of execution. Her original execution date was in April. She received a 60 day stay. elling the truth all along. It is only now that science has progressed so far that they can prove her innocence.

Its a damn shame that this woman has sat on death row all these years as an innocent woman who was tHer second date was set for tomorrow but she has now received another stay. Late Monday afternoon, the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals spared her life, for the time being.

It was split decision but in the end, the court found there is sufficient enough evidence that could show Baugh died from an accidental fall.

During the initial trial, the Travis County Medical Examiner testified the baby died after, "being slammed against a hard, flat surface."

The Henderson camp successfully argued to the Court of Criminal Appeals there is new technology, which wasn't available back during the trial in the mid-90s that could show his death was an ac…
