SAN ANTONIO — On Monday, over two years after a group of women accused of sexual assault in the ‘90s were declared innocent – after spending years behind bars – they met with the judge who officially expunged their records in court.
The development caps a years-long effort of rebuilding reputations and seeking justice for the so-called San Antonio Four—Kristie Mayhugh, Elizabeth Ramirez, Cassandra Rivera and Anna Vasquez. Their high-profile cases were officially dismissed last year.
After filling for expungement in October, Bexar County Judge Torres-Stahl officially signed the order on Nov. 30 for their records to be erased.
Ramirez spend 17 years in prison following the accusations; Vasquez 12-and-a-half; and Rivera and Mayhugh 14 years each.
