As the mother of the victim in this case, I would like to extend our great appreciation to the DA and his entire office, as well as the judge. I cannot tell you how much this has restored my faith in the justice system. To the people of Mineola and of Quitman, thank you for the kindness you showed us while we were in your community. My daughter was so very frightened to come and testify, but thanks to Jerry Hirsch she felt completely safe. God bless you, Jerry. Thank you , thank you , thank you!!!!!
