Through years of daily, dedicated, and thorough research, Jody Ortiz has worked tirelessly to bring truth to the spin created by the local media on a high profile case in Oklahoma. Kelsey Smith Briggs was raped and murdered in 2005, and Kelsey's mom, Raye Dawn Smith was then wrongfully convicted of enabling child abuse with a 27-year sentence with no chance of parole after facing a jury that had been tainted by biased members of the media. Kelsey's stepfather, Mike Porter, though charged with sexual assault and murder, was given a 30-year plea for enabling child abuse at the request of Kelsey's paternal family, the Briggs. In advocating against what Jody Ortiz believed was an injustice, Ortiz has in turn, suffered from mental and verbal abuse, cyberbullying, cyberstalking, stalking, hacking into her personal e-mails, attempts to destroy her business, threats of violence, false accusations, bullet holes in her truck, her home burglarized, and the harassment of her friends. All of this in an attempt to quiet her voice of truth and her passion for speaking what she fervently believes is a personal vendetta to destroy justice and sway public opinion. As told by Ortiz in her own words, you will feel the crippling fear that overtook this private citizen and see exactly why we often aren't presented with the full picture of an event as it unfolds. In the end you'll ask yourself, would I have the courage to do this for what once was a total stranger? We believe you will. And you will see that ultimately, truth does set you free.
