Frank Ballance Junior Defense Fund Holds Press Conference

Supporters of former congressman Frank W. Ballance, Jr. are fighting for his release from prison. And they'll bring the fight to the forefront today.

The group Frank Ballance Junior Defense Fund is holding a press conference today at 10:30am on the steps of the Halifax county court house.

Former Congressman Frank Ballance went to prison in December 2005 to start serving a four-year stint for siphoning taxpayer money from a nonprofit he created to help drug abusers.

Supporters say Ballance staying behind bars shows racial inconsistency in the judicial system.
