About the scandal:
Jennifer Erschabek, of Texas Inmate Families Association, from the above Chronicle article:
‘We’ve been claiming in the past that family members are being set up with these cases, but it’s been so hard to prove — and we finally have the proof,” she said. “I am just so thankful that our voices finally are being heard. We look forward to working with TDCJ to make sure this doesn’t happen in the future.’
