Change of Venue Request for the Thompson’s DENIED
[Houston, TX] On Friday April 13, 2018 Judge Kelli (178 District Court) decided to DENY a motion of change of venue for The Thompson’s. The Hernandez Family and FIEL spokespeople will be available for comment
" We agree with the Judge Kelli’s decision to keep the case here in Houston where justice for all will be served. The Hernandez family has the right to be in the courtroom in representation of John who is not here to represent himself. We must continue to advocate for the family and make sure that there is transparency throughout the whole process. We thank all parties involved and we hope that at the end of this ordeal all parties have justice served. On behalf of the family we want to thank the outpouring of support they have received and we hope to continue to support them for the remainder of this very painful ordeal."- Cesar Espinosa Executive Director FIEL
