Alright guys 12 days left! Lets step it up!!!! #fundraiser#LetsRaiseSomeMoney #BetterRepresentation
It is estimated that between 1.2 and 5% of all US prisoners are innocent of the crime they have been convicted of that is approximately 100,000 people. 1,320 people have in executed in the United States, and of that 1,320 people 70 have been exonerated before they were executed. Legal representation in America, is not always at its finest. The accused cannot always afford to defend themselves in a way they deserve to be. Public Defenders are often too busy with their political life and other things to even really care. That’s where we come into play, if we could even help just one person to be represented properly, then that is what we should do. We are saving lives, and standing up for the people who were given the short end of the stick. Lawyers are expensive, the average lawyer makes over $100,000 a year and charges $150 an hour. Per case criminal defense lawyers average the cost of $5,000 - $10,000, and for more serious felony charges and life sentences, the client can be charged upwards near $25,000. Proper representation is desperately needed, but with skyscraper rates like these, it seems as if only the privileged could afford it. Join me in the fight for better representation for low income families and families who simply cannot afford a good lawyer.
