San Antonio Four Speak



By Bill O'Neil

Together again for the first time in about two decades--the women of the so-called "San Antonio Four speak out about their time behind bars--and their continuing fight to clear their names.

"I just want to thank everybody" said Kristie Mayhugh, smiling two days after she, Elizabeth Ramirez, and Cassandra Rivera were able to post bail--after prosecutors and defense attrorneys agreed an expert witness' testimony in their child sex assualt cases was no longer credible. 

In fact, Ramirez said she sees the potential for an even bigger turning point ahead. 

"I hope this will open the doors to a lot of women who were incarerated for a long period of time" Ramirez said. Each of the four said they will continue their fight to clear their names.

"I don't want people to be afriad of who they are just because people want to stereotype us or have their own opinion about our lifestyle--and what we chose to do with our lives" Rivera said.
