If you’ve been watching the story of Diane Tran, you’ll be happy to know that the 17-year-old has won. Houston television station KHOU reported Wednesday evening that Judge Lanny Moriarty says he will clear her record of all charges.
That’s good news, but it’s just as exciting that the efforts to raise money to help her have been successful. The goal was to raise $100,000 and that goal was hit Wednesday afternoon.
This is a victory for Diane Tran, but it’s also a victory for all of you who shared her story and helped bring about awareness of it. I think it’s safe to say that Moriarty wouldn’t have backed down if it hadn’t been for your pressure.
If you live in his county and still participate in the electoral system, please make sure someone beat this bad judge in the next election.
