Default Cautiously excited!!! He was granted video conference with court for April

So, my D has been down for 20 yrs this coming spring on a LWOP sentence. He has appealed his case before and been denied..he put in another appeal, the last one he could do, this past spring and was just informed that he will have a video conference this coming April 18th with the court. Not even sure what the conference will be about. Scared to think it'll be nothing...but praying and hoping that it will lead to something!! Any and all prayers are welcomed!!

I will def update. Seems like the time is dragging...so hard waiting for this to come! Can not imagine how it is for him-know he isn't sleeping at all..we both are trusting the Lord in this situation, even so the wait is almost painful! Great opportunity for patience and peace of mind to grow! : )

So, things did not pan out. He was denied. 20 years seems so long. Long enough. Praying for his strength to keep pressing on. He is going to appeal I think. I will update along the way. Can't believe how sad I am-I knew it could be denied...
Thank you all for your kind thoughts and words! You are all very much appreciated.

Thank you Mizzy. He had an appeal for the Supreme court ready to go out the Monday after...he's not giving up yet and is staying strong in the Lord. I think i took it harder then he did! : (

Thank you all for your caring words!! D appealed to the supreme court and they requested his file!! He got that in the mail last week...so we continue to wait...He is taking it pretty rough..was hoping to be out by now and let his mind get too excited before the court date in April.

So it was kind of good news that the Supreme Court wants his file? I'm sorry to hear that D is not out yet. Lets hope that the Supreme Court grant him an appeal!!

Seems like really good news, especially since they requested his file just a little over a month after he sent in the appeal. : ) Anything could happen though..We'll see!
