Yesterday, was the one year anniversary of the passing of our sweet beloved Kammy Mae. We dreaded this days arrival, wishing it would just skip by... but that's the funny thing about grief, it never fails to come back around for you.
One whole year we have been missing her beautiful smile, her contagious laughter, and her pure and radiant light. One whole year we have been fighting, tooth and nail to bring justice to the monster who ripped her away from us. One Year.
365 days..... 8760 Hours.....525600 Minutes.... Not one of those spent giving up on this fight.
We will never stop, not until Domestic Violence ceases to exist in it's entirety. We will never stop standing up for every victim, every family, every survivor, every fighter. We will never stop until justice has it's day. I promise you all, that day is coming.
Kammy Mae, we love you, and miss you more than any words could possibly describe.
Today, another court date. This one was meant to be smaller, and not as significant. Anthony Christensen put forth a few motions to the judge, which needed to be addressed. Apparently, he feels he is being treated unfairly because they are not granting all his requests, and he does not feel safe in his confinement. The judge was very to the point, and denied each of his motions one by one. They also scheduled the Preliminary hearing for December 12, 2017. Now, for those of you not familiar with how the justice system works, here is what we can expect from the upcoming court date.
A preliminary trial is basically a "trial before the trial" and it is considered one of the most important steps in court processing. It is where they deliver all of the gathered evidence, and decide whether or not they have enough to send it to a grand jury trial. Prosecutors must demonstrate that there is sufficient evidence, or probable cause, such that the jury will be convinced enough that the person is guilty.
We are confident that the evidence will be more than enough, and are all thinking positively about this upcoming preliminary trial, and ask you all to do the same.
Thank you for your continued support, endless love, and prayers as our family continues on this long and difficult journey.
