Diane Wilson Goes to Bat in Calhoun County

Aug 26th, 2008

We think Angela deserves a round of applause! She refused to give up even when she was ignored. Angela’s brother had a terminal condition and desperately needed his medication, but wasn’t receiving it in their jail. Angela sent them a 1500 word complaint, and sent the same complaint to the biggest paper in her area, the Victoria Advocate, and they published it. Then she found us, emailed us and Diane Wilson drove over and had a conversation with the sheriff. Then, finally, the jail staff paid attention.
