Next were the words "Praise Him!"
Shane went on to write: "(Attorney Robert) Boyle just sent me a copy of his response to the (Bronx) DA's December 28 letter (about) the order of the Court. So, the habeas corpus motion is now fully briefed, and (Robert Boyle) expects it will take the judge at least a couple of months to write a decision. Praise God for our Constitutional rights! I am feeling real good about it and feel that the Federal Court will not do us like the State Court. Amen!"
In other words, the Federal Court is now fully prepared to make a decision regarding our motion to overturn the State Court decision which denied Shane's release or a new trial.
Shane's letter concluded: "Give everyone my love and tell them to prepare to see me in the flesh real soon. Amen!" This was followed by a passage from the book of Romans, chapter 4: "...even God, who gives life to the dead and calls into being that which does not exist."
A few days ago I sent a letter to Shane and included copies of comments made on the petition that has been circulating on his behalf. I am sure that Shane's spirits will be lifted once he reads them. Thanks to all those who took the time to sign the petition and add their positive comments. If you have not signed the petition and would like to, just CLICK HERE.
