A Christmas Miracle
brings a Happy Ending
to this chapter of Judy's Life.

On December 20, 2017, Gov. Eric Greitens
traveled to Chillicothe to give the good news to Judy,
in person.
It was a closely-held secret!

Needless to say, J
udy was shocked to the core when she turned around
and found him standing behind her.
After he helped her off the floor (literally),
he looked into her eyes and said,

"I wanted to tell you in person that your sentence
has been commuted to time served.
Your family is here to take you home."

The news even traveled to the United Kingdom!

Judy thanks everyone who supported her during these 36 challenging years.
She  hopes to be able to meet all of you in person.
