Marietta Georgia — On July 22, 2011 at 11:30 a.m. the Georgia State Conference NAACP, the Cobb County Branch NAACP, Radio Talk Show Host Derrick Boazman and Coalition partners will hold a press conference to speak out against an African American mother facing potential prison time for the hit and run death of her son by a driver who confessed to consuming Alcohol on the morning of the incident. It is a grave miscarriage of justice when the mother who should still be grieving is forced to fight harder for her freedom than the man who killed her son. Ms. Raquel Nelson if sentenced would be forced to spend more time in prison than the man who killed her son. Georgia NAACP State Conference President Edward O DuBose will also be joined by Ms Raquel Nelson – mother of the four year old child who was struck and killed by a hit and run driver.
