This is a petition for aid for one of our own AOL family members.
To all of you who know or have known of Octavian Nephilim, you know that he was our co-worker, peer, champion and friend while at America Online (AOL) – both inside and out of the confines of the AOL building. Octavian is a warm, funny, giving, and smart person.
As many of you know, Octavian is in a Florida correctional institute. Without the means of retaining a private attorney, Octavian was represented during trial by a Public Defender and was ultimately sentenced to prison. He has been incarcerated for 4 years and based on his sentencing has 21 more to go. We three sisters (Sheila, Heidi and Delphine), along with others, visit and support him financially, spiritually and emotionally. Surprisingly, he lifts us up because he is always positive, and he continues to learn and grow while fighting through this process.
Octavian needs our help. We believe he would already be home if he had proper representation.
Because he cannot afford an attorney, Octavian is continuing to fight for his freedom by writing and preparing for his own appeals. He needs a better lawyer, a better presentation of the facts and another opportunity at life. Please help us, help Octavian by contributing to his appeals fund. .
Please give any amount, anything you can. No contribution is too small, every dollar helps. You can make a difference.
WE ARE COMMITTED! And we hope you will be too.
