Dear readers, I need your help. I dated a woman for 3 years. I provided for her and her daughter completely with no help from the child's father. I got the woman off of drugs and involved in her children's life again. Her daughter came with failing grades in school and severe social anxiety issues. Over the course of the first year, she became confident and excelled in school making honor roll and being a math tutor to other students when she used to struggle with the subject. She became outgoing and confident. She even told me she wished I was her dad.
Unfortunately, her mother became an alcoholic, abusive and destructive. I could not fix her this time around. I had to end the relationship. Still, for the benefit of the child, I let her take my car and provided her with a cell phone.
In her anger over the breakup, I find myself facing charges of touching the child inappropriately. That never happened. Yet, in cases like this, an accusation is all that is needed. As a result, I had to turn myself in to be booked in jail. This lead to my losing my great job that I held for many, many years. I am now losing everything I have worked so hard to build up. I am, or was, the primary benefactor for most of my family, including my aged and ill parents, as well as 2 children of my own.
I know it is a long shot. I know people tend to believe these sort of allegations. But, in a desperate plea, I am asking for financial help. Help not only to defend myself but to also get the child help once this case is settled. My family is behind me, my friends are behind me. I have all the support I need except legal help. Please take a leap of faith and help if you can.
