While we wait…
We made it past November 9, 2011 and thanks to you ALL we feel stronger. Your support, individual and collective, gives us the energy to overcome this horrible roller coaster, so thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
The Texas Court of Criminal Appeals issued a stay of execution on Monday November 7th while we were visiting with Hank.
On November 21, 2011 Judge Emmert issued a second order denying the third motion for DNA testing. Hank’s attorney are working on their brief that will be filed early next year.
It will most likely take several months for the CCA to rule on the issue. In the meantime, Hank’s lead attorney, Rob Owen, who was court appointed to handle Hank’s federal appeal, is working pro bono on the DNA issue. While we are very grateful for his time, we cannot expect him to cover the legal expenses he will incur.
So our next goal is to raise funds to cover his legal expenses. We are asking all of you who have supported Hank during these past months, and signed petitions on his behalf, to make a $10 donation to his defense fund in order to make a difference.

To those of you who write to Hank, please make ensure to always include your postal address and e-mail address if you have one, otherwise he cannot reply to your letters.
Thank you all for your assistance!
