On Saturday, July 11th, Steve's mother visits him for the first time in prison. Steve mentions that the visitors' room is crowded, and he attempts to make casual conversation with his mother, who is clearly shocked and depressed to see him in prison. After Steve asks how Jerry is doing, Steve's mother asks him if she should have got him a black lawyer. Steve shakes his head "no" because he feels that it isn't a matter of race. Steve's mother then gives him a Bible with Psalm 28:7 highlighted and asks Steve to read it aloud. Steve's mother tries her best to encourage her son through this difficult time and tells him that no matter what anybody says, she knows that he is innocent. She then tells Steve that she loves him before leaving. When Steve gets back to his cell and lays on his cot, he mentions that he could still feel his mother's pain.
