A lot of people have shown surprise and disbelief that I am still fighting my sons case after the judge found him guilty. I want to tell you all that any and all motions can still be made AFTER the trial, as long as you show the judge that it is relevant.




Those of you in the field, or who have looked into what happens in these trials know the usual post conviction briefs and motions. Here is what we have been through since May 22nd.

Currently we do not have a date set for sentencing.

  • Motion for new trial and / or arrest of judgement

  • Brief in support of motion for new trial and / or arrest of judgement

  • Subpeonas Duces Tecum

  • Reply to City’s Motion to Quash

  • Motion to dismiss



I just received a notice from my attorney that the judge wants to see us tomorrow:

Subject: 17-1-00384-1 State v. Hambrick – Court Ruling re In-Camera Review
Importance: High

Good afternoon, Counsel:

Judge Gonzales has completed the in-camera inspection of the training manual. Judge is prepared to render his decision, and prefers to provide an oral ruling this Thursday, on his October 25, 2018 at 9:00am Criminal Docket, rather than delaying until Friday, Nov. 2nd.

Can everyone be available this Thursday morning?


Everyone is hopeful this is good news. I am resisting the thought. It could be nothing, it could be everything, and anything in between. With so little information given I prefer to to believe that nothing has changed and steel myself for tomorrows daily dose of pain.



And yet….

there is the smallest whisper in my ear that just maybe my persistence and hard work could pay off!?!?!
