Message from Reggie’s mother

Followers of this blog will know that one of the cases we have been supporting is that of Reggie Clemons who has been on death row for 19 years now.  He is awaiting a hearing in January and our group sent a message of support recently.  We have just received the following message from his mother Vera:

Thanking you and the group for your support.  It has meant so much for Reggie.  Thank you for the Christmas greeting.  Reggie trial is scheduled for January.  January 8th jury selection will start.  Trial may start the week of the 15th.  Will keep you posted.  We have fought a long hard fight for Justice and thank you for being there with us in the fight.

It is good news that the planned execution of Clinton Lee Young has been stayed by a Texas court due to doubts about the evidence.  It just shows that had the execution gone ahead, any mistakes cannot be undone.  Thanks to all those who wrote on this case.
