Marine, DOD police officer, corrections officer, prisoner transport officer, armed security guard -- this has been Kevin's adult career until December, 2012.  In December, 2012, Kevin was at his duty post doing his job when trouble came to him.  In an effort to protect himself and others (which the Florida Security Officer's Handbook states) he had to do his job.  After many times of tryiing to resolve things without incident, he had to make a hard decision quickly.  He was dealing with someone that was twice the legal limit of intoxication, making threats, and being a danger to others.  After Kevin was arrested, we posted bail and he has faced every hearing and every attorney appt..  Kevin went thru a trial in July which was full of prosecutional errors and "below the belt" tactics.  As a result Kevin was found guilty and then the next week the judge vacated that trial because of the errors and awarded a new trial.  The week after the new trial was awarded, the judge assigned a $300,000 bond amount and stated it was reasonable along with a stay of the proceedings will the prosecution appeals the awarding of the new trial.  So, Kevin is not guilty any longer and has not tried to run from his responsibilities, has paid a bond once already .... but if he wants to come home to be with his family while waiting for the appeal court (approx. 1 - 2 yrs), a second bond has to be paid.

 

Asking for donations is not something that I have ever imagined that I would be doing, but here I am.  I thank you for taking the time to read this posting and if you feel lead to contribute I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
