A Phone Call From Joseph Allen

[Note: Friends of Justice is a personal blog. I speak only for myself.]

Dear Friend of Justice,

I received a phone call from Joseph Allen yesterday afternoon. Even though Allen and his co-defendant, Nancy Smith, were acquitted by a judge, the prosecutors (aided by the Ohio Attorney General) have appealed the acquittal and are trying to send Smith and Allen back to prison. The appeals court will have a hearing on the prosecutors’ motion this coming Tuesday.

Let us hope for the best so that these two good people can get on with their lives. Sending them back behind bars would be a terrible tragedy.
