My son was falsely accused of a felony crime. And yes I know that almost every criminal says that they are innocent but he really is and it was proven in court that he was not able to commit the crime of arson. He had 7 witnesses to say he couldn't do it but they were not allowed to testify. They proved that the method of the arson could not have been done yet they District Attorney was allowed to have that stricken from the records. The courts allowed the structure to be cleaned within 6 hours then torn down and removed before they even accused anyone of arson. No investigation was done and my son's lawyer was not even able to have the an investigator look into anything because they were allowed to destroy all the evidence beforehand. The state's only argument was that my son and the representative of the estate didn't like each other. His trial was held December 19th and 20th, 2019 and on the 20th the jury was deliberating when the judge gave them an ultimatum of reaching a decision immediately or being brought back the next day, two days before Christmas. My son is only 25 years old and is facing 40 years in prison if we are not able to raise the money to appeal this verdict. The first trail has left us in debt and no further funds can be obtained. I want to help him but I have used all of my resources. He is a daddy to a beautiful little girl who needs him. Please help me bring my family back together.
