New Date Set For Sentencing!

I have news from the latest pre-trial!  According to the DA  the defendant does not want to plead guilty to an added charge of assault with a deadly weapon so the district attorney’s office has decided not to re-try the case on an assault charge. Sentencing for the charge that the defendant was found guilty for is set for Dec. 10th. She’s looking to at least 30 years – life. I would like to address the court (the judge & the defendant) so I’m hoping to attend the sentencing even though I can’t really afford it!

Unfortunately at that time the defense will be filing a motion for a new trial and of course the District attorney will oppose it.

I’m praying that this can all come to an end and be completely done with on Dec. 10th! This has been a very long and painful process and I desperately want to move on and with God’s grace, (as well as with the help of family & friends) work on creating a new life for myself.

Thank you for all of your prayers and support. There’s no way I could have gotten through this without them!!! Please know that I pray daily for all those who are praying for me and for their intentions.

God is Sovereign!

Rosario’s Prayer Requests – A Carepage Post

Posted Jul 15, 2009 12:28pm

Even though I can’t run to my sister’s side any time she needs something, I find great consolation in talking to her on the phone. It is not the same as being there, but I’ll take what I can get!

I talked to Rosario on my lunch break and she gave me a list of specific prayer requests. I hope I remember them all!

Most of the requests involved transitions. She is transitioning off her pain medication and would like prayers that it goes well. As Dad mentioned in an earlier update, she does not tolerate pain well, so she is very nervous about this transition.

Another transition is the transition of care. Although the family Rosario is staying with provide the bulk of her care, there are a few others who are helping as well. Rose is grateful for everyone who has been helping. Still the transition of care can be a lot.

The last transition Rosario would like you to keep in your prayers is a future one, but an important one. She will eventually need to find a new apartment and possibly a new roommate. It’s not jumping the gun to start praying for that search now.

Finally, Rosario has a follow-up appointment tomorrow to remove her sutures. She is a bit nervous about the removal and is asking that you pray that it is as pain-free as possible. Please also pray that she remembers all of the questions she has for the doctors. The appointment is at 9AM, so eastern standard time people can pray at noon.

Thank you for your continued prayers! Rosario and our entire family are very aware of how powerful your intercession has been.
