It's about time !! It's VERY rare for a judge to over-turn a conviction but it was certainly warranted in this case.

Cynthia Sommer Gets New Trial"A man can no more diminish God's glory by refusing to worship Him, than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word 'darkness' on the walls of his cell." CS Lewis

The District Attorney has stated that she still wants to leave the case in such a manner that she could re-charge Cindy at some point in the future!
Cindy and her attorney, Allen Bloom, want this case fully dismissed - with prejudice - as soon as possible. Towards that end, a hearing has been set in the Superior Court of San Diego County to determine if the case should be dismissed once and for all time. This hearing, currently scheduled for July 18, 2008, will present extensive evidence as to why Cindy's case should, because of the evidence in the case and the improper conduct of the District Attorney, be dismissed once and for all.
