This is a campaign for Tim Jones legal fees but it represents so much more.
We have been trying to keep this matter private but we are not get the support we need and time is running tight. Tim nor any of his family are aware of this so please keep questions to on this platform

The current charge of “drug trafficking” does not mean prosecutors have proof of dealing or bringing drugs across state lines. The law focuses on the amount of drugs in an individual’s possession.
The prisons are overcrowded because they are locking people up for decades for the littlest crimes but if a murder is committed in the perpetration of, or attempt to
perpetrate, aggravated battery on a child under 12 years of age, arson,
rape, robbery, burglary, kidnapping or mayhem, an act of terrorism, or
the use of a weapon of mass destruction, biological weapon or chemical
weapon- these things have a mandatory minimum of just 10 years!

on a large scheme of things we know the systematic racism causing them to lock up poor people of color (please watch "13th" Documentary) which goes into that further.
We can not let them continue to do this to our people and our next generations. We have to make changes on a local level and join together in our communities. I am asking for everyone's help with anything you can donate because Tim does not deserve the time he is facing and we need legal assistance for proper representation for an appeal. He is a non violent offender and they are trying to force him with many others to Texas because of the mass incarceration for petty crimes. Please help get him home and cut this time. He is a Son,Father, husband ,best friend, brother, son-in-law,skater,musician,writer, a family man and so much more. It could have been any of us in this situation. He is one of the kindest souls I've known. It doesn't stop here either and change is needed everywhere.
