Dear Friends,

I am currently experiencing the greatest trial of my life and am appealing to you to support me in this dark time.  In supporting me, you will also support my ability to continue to parent the four young children that are in my full-time care.  The information I share with you requires a great deal of vulnerability on my part.   I am neither ashamed, nor fearful of the criticism that will certainly come from some who learn of my situation.  Instead, I take great pride in the belief that many of you will not only believe in my innocence, but you will also support me through these days. 

Recently I was charged with felony battery to a minor child (not my own child).  Ok, catch your breath!  I regret that I cannot discuss in great detail the specifics of the charge as the case is open and I must therefore limit communication until my innocence is proven.  I assure you that I am indeed innocent of these charges.  My belief is that my accuser has malicious intentions as the allegations are more for my accuser’s personal gain over others than over me.  But, if I do not prove my innocence, I stand to lose my career, possibly be imprisoned and my children may become wards of the state. 

As you very well could imagine, the stress of being presumed guilty until proven innocent adds an enormous portion to my already full plate of responsibilities.  I am pleading with those of you who not only know of me, but also know my character to be compassionate and gentle; I petition those of you who trust I would never physically harm anyone, much less a child.  My family needs your support in this time! Working to prove my innocence is extremely costly, but the value is incalculable.   I have retained a superb attorney and have been told to expect legal expenses in the range of $50,000.  I cannot afford to cover these on my own, so I humbly ask for you to assist me in the cause. 

I do not imagine that any one person could cover this expense for me.  Therefore, my plan is to make the campaign both welcoming and obtainable so that those of you who are deeply concerned for me but not in a position to give much can assist in the effort alongside those who have the ability to give more freely.  The simple plan is to trust that there are 325 of you who are willing to support me.  If you will choose to support me by picking whichever number you are able to match with donated dollars, this will allow me to reach the campaign goal of a little more than $50,000.  Your generosity is certainly welcomed to surpass the allotted dollar amount, but my hope is to be affirmed by the evidence that a great mass of people want to help my family during this time, as many of you know I would support you in like fashion during a similar time of need.

Thank you for taking the time to read this letter.  You can certainly message me to express your concern and care; I will do my best to respond in a timely manner.  I know many of you want to pray for me as well and I am glad to share a list of ways I need your prayer.  If you are prompted to stand in support at litigation hearings, or wish to be aligned as a possible character witness, you may write me for this information as well at jeremiahpreece@gmail.com.

With great sincerity,

 

Jeremiah
