According to Dr. Melina Abdullah, “One of John’s family members also joined after hearing about what happened to him through our activism work. Several arguments were made to release John that were not successful yet.”
Penny’s next court date will be September 13th, 2019 at 8:30am, located at the Metropolitan Courthouse in Department 95, 1945 S. Hill Street in Los Angeles 90007.
