Dear friends and family,  As many of you are already aware, last week Cougar was sentenced to a mandatory minimum prison term of 42-51 months. The charges were a result of a no-knock raid served on a bullshit warrant, from a highly questionae ... More ...

Dear friends and family, 

Well our brother has been away now for almost two months. You may not notice his absence as much his kids or I do, but I know you miss him all the same. It's a crazy world we live in; bad things really do happen to good people every day. That's why it's so important to support the folks who have supported you, to love the ones that love you back, and always remember that man's law is not God's law.

Here's an update on the legal situation. Today, Cougar was assigned a public appellate defender, which is great news because it gives us a time line for the appeal process. The first step is to get the court transcripts from his case sent to his attorney. That will take another month-2 months. This is crucial because it gives us time to try and raise the money for a private appellate attorney. I was referred to the "best appellate attorney in the state" by several law firms and have since spoken with him. He wants the case and will require  between 20-30k.

Even if we can't hire the big gun attorney, we will still need to pay our private investigator to get him to come back and testify for the appeal. We owe around 4,500 for services rendered thus far. This is where you come in!! 

It will take about a year to complete the appeal process. At the end of which I'm confident he will be coming home.  

We are asking you all to dig deep. Do it because his kids need him. Do it because the war on drugs and criminal justice system are a joke. Do it because you'll miss his sweaty late night antics and his laugh. Do it because he would do it for you because that's what family does! 

As I reread the last paragraph I'm reminded of how generous Cougar is.... Always helping out even when he has so little. It makes me proud to have such a giving and loving man. 

With love and gratitude, 

Maggie
