Featured Case: San Antonio Four
The Latest on the San Antonio Four
On Wednesday, November 23, the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals declared the San Antonio Four innocent and exonerated.
The court's opinion was comprehensive and definitive.
Elizabeth Ramirez, Cassandra Rivera, Kristie Mayhugh, and Anna Vasquez — four Latina lesbians wrongfully convicted of allegedly gang raping two little girls — have had their good names cleared. They can now get on with their lives and be free, really really free.
The San Antonio district attorney must still officially drop the charges. We expect this to happen very soon.
Then IPTX will help the women apply for compensation from the state. This compensation will come in the form of a lump sum payment plus a monthly annuity for their lifetime. Additional related benefits will also be available.
