Since the denial of my son’s appeal, I became very depressed. I couldn’t eat nor sleep. All I could do was work and stay on the computer praying to find a way to help my son.I was a perfect example of the walking dead. All I could feel was sadness and despair.
My son was so optimistic about winning the appeal that it began to cloud his reality. When he learned that it was denied, his devastation broke my heart.
Statistically, the chances of changing the court’s mind in a way that impacts the result of the opinion are extremely small on motions for rehearing. Of the 1,028 motions for rehearing received in the Fourth District during 2006, only 21 were granted.
Well, 21 is such a small number.
Please help me pray that my son, my deserving son is part of that small number.
