Crohn's Disease Patient Shona Banda Speaks Out As Charges LoomMindi Griffiths Special to Salem-News.com
Shona's plight has drawn the attention of The Washington Post and a wide range of mainstream media outlets including ABC’s The View.
(GARDEN CITY, KS) - The Human Solution International has learned a press conference has been scheduled for June 15, regarding the case against Crohn’s disease patient Shona Banda. The press conference will begin at 2:00 pm and is located at 304 N. Main Garden City, Kansas 67846.
It is understood Shona plans to voluntarily surrender herself to the authorities at the press conference. She is humbly requesting all supporters be there.
According to The Garden City Telegram’s report late last week, Finney County Attorney, Susan Richmeier announced that five criminal charges are in the process of being filed against Shona Banda as a result of the well publicized raid by Garden City Police in April.
The charges, include distribution or possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance within 1,000 feet of school property, endangering a child, unlawful manufacture of a controlled substance, and two drug paraphernalia infractions.
The Garden City Telegram notes that Shona is facing between 138 to 204 months of incarceration.
If one believes numbers are any indication, the public is in great support of Shona. Fundraising efforts have raised over $43,000.
Despite a previously placed gag order, Shona spoke out in an exclusive interview with Truth in Media. As noted in their article, Shona will face family court once again on July 10, assuming she has not been detained by that time.
