An Update from Elke Kennedy

Elke Kennedy, the mother of Sean Kennedy, emailed us over the weekend to make sure we had an update on the sentencing of Sean's attacker, which we reported on last week.

Elke reminds us that Stephen Moller, who was recently convicted of manslaughter, "will spend only about ten months behind bars before he is eligible for parole, and if he gets that, then he will have three years' probation."

Sean's mother also tells us that "now, more than ever, I will continue to stand up and do whatever I need to do to educate the public and work . . . to stop this madness and injustice."

All of us at PFLAG are proud to stand with her.
