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

In the days leading up to her daughter’s release, Maria Vasquez said she and her family had been preparing Anna’s room, buying a new bedroom suite, mattress, TV and blankets.

They also planned to get whatever groceries they needed for Saturday morning.

“I’m going to cook her a big breakfast just like she asked for,” Maria Vasquez said in a previous story. “She hasn’t had a good breakfast in 13 years.”

The National Center for Reason and Justice (NCRJ) found Mike Ware, the Texas Four lawyer. Ware credits the polygraph test, paid for by the NCRJ, for convincing the Parole Board to release Anna.
