PAROLE DENIED for Abigail Young!


Abigail Young was denied parole by the Texas Board of Pardons & Paroles (TBPP) on 8/1/18.

Continued justice for precious (barely 4 years old) Emma Thompson prevails!   afro

Special thanks to Andy Kahan and Laurie Thompson for their efforts in meeting with the TBPP in July, 2018.
Andy is Director of Victim Services and Advocacy at Crime Stoppers of Houston, TX.

Also, special thanks to Amanda Young Mathews for all of her efforts.

A very special thanks to all of the people, from all over the world, that wrote letters to the Texas Board of Pardons & Paroles opposing parole for Abigail Young. It is my understanding that over 4,000 letters were written opposing parole for Young.   The TBPP members reviewing Abigail Young for parole are required to read every letter that is sent to them regarding Young's parole.  Your letter is very important!

Due to Texas law, Abigail Young was not given a 5 year set off date for her next  parole review.  Andy explains this in his comment below.  She will be up for parole review again in 2019 . .. . . a 1 year set off.  

In 2019, we will have to write letters opposing parole for Abigail Young.  

Please read Andy Kahan's commentary in his original post on Facebook (see below).

Parole Decision Alert:

Abigail Young was denied parole today, however she will be once again (4th time) for release August 2019 due to the inane Discretionary Mandatory Release Law.

Bottom line: Parole board members had no discretion to grant a set-off of more than one year due to State Law.

This means a notice of potential release will be sent out April 2019. The law that we passed appropriately titled 'Emma's Law in 2013 to give the parole board discretion upon denying parole not to review again for up to 5 years (used in 2013) is no longer in effect in this case due to HB 1433 which was passed in 1995.

Back to the drawing board and will be once again seeking legislative solutions to remedy this injustice.

On behalf of Emma's family, friends and supporters we will once again be seeking your help to prevent Abigail Young from being paroled six months from now.

This must change.

Does anyone know why some of the words are hi-lited in blue in the above comments?

I noticed sometimes they are hi-lited in blue when logged out and when logged in.

I don't know what that is about.
