My name is Anna Vail. Robert is my son. He is 23 yrs old and has been working hard since the age of 18. In May, Rob was arrested and charged with simple assault and harassment. He simply did not do what he is accused of. We do not have a lot of money and I am afraid of what will happen if he is to be represented by the public defender I believe in Rob's innocence and not just because I am his Mother. The police do not investigate these crimes. They simple took a statement and filed charges. In this case the person who screamed the loudest got the charges filed on their behalf as is the case with most of these types of charges. There is evidence to support his claim that he did not assault anyone, but that evidence will not come out unless there is a trial. The local Public Defenders are overworked and will only look to "make a deal". This is very wrong, but this is how the criminal justice system works in our country, especially small rural counties like Tioga County. The jails and prisons are full of innocent people who had an inadequate defense because of their poor financial circumstances. I can't allow this to happen to Robert. I have hired the firm of Lepley, Engelman and Yaw out of Williamsport, PA. (570)323-3768. They are 60+ miles south of us. I have only the money to pay the initial retainer. If you need more details or wish to speak with me, please feel free to email me at olivail@epix.net. Thank you very much for your support.
