My son Robert was arrested on Tuesday, Jan. 21, 2014 & accused of a Class X Felony for supposedly robbing a gas station with a gun for $140.00. They did not find a gun in Roberts’s possession & because he was highly intoxicated they coerced him into signing a written confession. Robert was also never given the opportunity to contact a lawyer or to even make a phone call. This is a very serious charge & my son can face up to 30 years if convicted. Lawyer fees will be between $15k-$20k, not including court fees. In order to bring Robert home on bond & deal with this long process I need to come up with $27,500. We have no savings & we are trying to come up with the retainer for the lawyer now & then we will work on his bond money. Anyone that knows my son knows that this isn’t something Robert would do. I just want to give him the best chance at beating this & bring him home while we fight the case. Any help that you can give will be greatly appreciated. Robert is a full time college student and a very loving person. He has no prior criminal record and never gotten in trouble before.
