Update: No Parole for Sean Kennedy's Murderer

Last month we called our PFLAG allies to action, encouraging everyone to write to the South Carolina Department of Probation, Pardon and Parole to ask that they deny parole for Stephen Andrew Moller.

On May 16, 2007, Sean Kennedy, a 20-year old gay man, was attacked by Moller on the streets of Greenville, South Carolina. He died of his injuries later that night. Yet, because of the lack of hate crimes legislation, Moller was eligible for parole this February!

Fortunately, according to News Channel 7 in Spartanburg, SC, his request has been denied.

Thank-you to every PFLAG member and ally who wrote on behalf of justice for Sean Kennedy.
