    In case you have limited time but would like to view the Corrections Committee Public Meeting presentation, testimony and discussion of HB 431 (Emma's Law) which was held on Wednesday, 2/27/13, I have noted the video time as to where various speakers can be seen/heard.

    If you were unable to watch the "Live" stream of the meeting, you can view it in the Texas House of Representatives Corrections Committee - Archives.

    http://www.house.state.tx.us/video-a...am=13022714200
    Texas House of Reps - Video - Archives

    Committee on Corrections

    Meeting:

    02/27/13

    2:00p.m. - 3:44p.m

    For your info, the presentation of HB 431 (Emma's Law) by Rep. Debbie Riddle starts at the 55:11 (55 minutes:11 seconds) mark on the Real Player Video. You can advance the video to 55:11 by moving the "icon" on the bar below the video box. There were two other bills discussed prior to HB 431.

    Laurie Thompson, Emma Thompson's paternal grandmother, testified before the Committee starting at the 1:02:45 (1 Hour: 02 Minutes: 45 Seconds) mark. Wow! She did an outstanding job! She is truly an excellent and impressive speaker. Emma was very lucky to have Laurie Thompson for a grandmother.

    Rep. Tan Parker (Chair) told Mrs. Thompson that the bill will move forward.

    Others testified after Laurie Thompson.

    At 1:30:28, Rep. Riddle closes.

    At 1:35:45, Rep. Tan Parker, Chair of the Corrections Committee speaks regarding HB 431 (Emma's Law). Very impressive!

    There is strong support for HB 431.

    HB 431 is in Pending status in the Corrections Committee for further discussion. It is a possibility HB 431 will be made "stronger" prior to moving forward per Committee discussions during the meeting on 2/27/13.

    This was an awesome experience to be able to see the meeting via "live" stream.

    Personally, I think HB 431 (Emma's Law) will become a reality during the 2013 Legislative session.

    I assure you, it is worth your time to listen to the presentation, testimony and discussion regarding HB 431.

    "Like" facebook page - Justice For Emma Thompson

    If you do Facebook, please "like" the facebook page for Emma Thompson.

    This is the Facebook page that LCoastMom set up for Emma in 2012 to encourage folks to write letters to the Texas Board of Pardons & Paroles protesting Abigail Young's parole.

    It was a huge success in 2012! I know if LCoastMom was able to be here, she would encourage all to "like" Justice for Emma Thompson facebook.

    There are currently 1,650 "likes". It would be awesome to have 1,700 likes and ultimately at least 2,000 "likes."

    Please ask your "Friends" to "Like" Justice For Emma Thompson facebook page. Thanks!

    March 2, 2012 was one year that LCoastMom "founded" the Facebook page, Justice For Emma Thompson.

    I know LCM is ill but I know how passionate she was about seeking justice for Emma and hoping that the Texas Board of Pardons & Paroles (TBPP) would deny Abigail Young's parole.

    LCM did an awesome job regarding Justice For Emma Thompson facebook page. She welcomed everyone and encouraged all who "liked" the page to please write a letter to TBPP requesting that Young's parole be denied.

    We miss you immensely, LCoastMom!

    Special thoughts and prayers are with you as we all continue to support and seek justice for precious Emma Thompson!

    Hopefully, the Texas Legislatures will pass HB 431 during this (2013) Legislative session which will be called Emma's Law in honor of Emma Thompson!

    Update: Abigail Young's "2013 parole review" status

    I just spoke to a lady at Texas Department of Criminal Justice regarding Abigail Young.

    I told her last year, Abigail Young's parole review date was 2/21/12 with a decision being rendered by the Texas Department of Pardons & Paroles (TDPP) the latter part of August, 2012. TDPP denied Young's parole.

    Per the lady I spoke to, Abigail Young is now scheduled for parole review again on 8/16/13. She said that means Abigail Young's file will be pulled on 8/16/13 and Young will be placed on parole review status.

    After I inquired further, the lady did acknowledge that there is a possibility that Abigail Young's file could be pulled sooner and she be placed on "parole review status."

    Like many, I will monitor Abigail Young's status closely and the letter campaign to protest Young's parole will start promptly . . . as soon as she is placed on "parole review status - 2013."

    It will take the efforts of many folks to write letters protesting Abigail Young's parole with the Texas Board of Pardons & Paroles. We were successful in 2012 and I hope we will be successful in 2013.

    Abigail Young was sentenced to 20 years and she needs to serve all 20 years.

    Abigail Young has not even served 4 years . . . the age of Emma Thompson when she was brutally raped and murdered by Lucas Coe, Abigail Young's then live-in boyfriend!

    "No parole for Abigail Young!"

    Ann you are amazing! I followed you on another board and always hoped you'd find your way over here! God bless you for your passion and dedication to Emma Catherine Grace! I am ready to send my letter just let me know when. Abigail got off light with 20 years but we have to ensure she does the whole 20 years. God forbid that woman be allowed to breed again, she should not have that right after what she ALLOWED to happen to her precious baby Emma! Thanks again for your commitment to Justice for Emma!! You rock!

    I'll be keeping an eye out. I was thinking that she would be up for review real soon.

    And Ann - I agree!

    Emma was such a beautiful child. It breaks my heart everytime I look at her picture and see that shining little face.

    Abby, what were your thoughts yesterday? Did you think of the beautiful light you brought into the world or did you think of how you destroyed it mercilessly?
