Kirstin Lobato’s story was featured inJustice:Denied, Issue 26. Nationally known San Francisco based defense attorney J. Tony Serra has been retained on Kirstin’s behalf by supporters believing in her innocence. At a January 2005 hearing Kirstin’s retrial date was set for November 7, 2005. Kirstin’s family and supporters are unable to post her Court ordered $500,000 bail, so she remains in pre-trial custody at the Southern Nevada Woman’s Correctional Facility in Las Vegas.

In November 2004, Mr. Serra successfully defended Richard Tabish, who was acquitted after a retrial in Las Vegas of murdering casino heir Ted Binion in 1998. Evidence indicates that Mr. Binion died from a self-inflicted heroin overdose.
