RJ, a well respected figure in the local community of Colorado Springs, is facing a life changing legal battle after being falsely charged and mis-tried for a sexual offense. Partner with us in our pursuit of true justice, and being a voice for others.

This is my best friend RJ. RJ is, and has been a respected member in his church and community, as well as a worship leader until he was forced to step down because of the case against him. RJ also operates a succesful carpentry business out of his garage.

He and his wife Ella are always looking for ways to invest in, and bless their community. From ministry to volunteering their time in counseling and outreach, they are always seeking for the betterment of those around them. Their actions have reached and affected many people, including those of us that stand with them in their pursuit of justice for RJ and his family. That being said, My name is Charles. RJ's closest friend and advocate. As a personal confidant, and trusted advisor, I can assure you of the character of this man. I've been blessed to be close to RJ for the years that I have, and have gotten to walk alongside him and his wife in the craziness of life. Hear my Plea for my friend.

Over a year ago, RJ started a court case that has since done it's best to destroy life as he knows it. Myself, and we as his friends and community, believe that the evidence presented against him not only does not incriminate him, but proves his innocence. 

Unfortunately, this is a sexual offense case that we believe was pursued haphazardly by the state of Colorado, and has limited both RJ and Ella in their pursuits of happiness for the last year and a half. As neither of them have wifi at home, and RJ cannot access the internet at all, it falls to us to defend and advocate for our friend.

In order to pursue a court case to drop RJ's charges and appeal his sentence, the lawyer they have chosen has requested $3750 to start the case and a total of $10,000 by the end of the case. It is a shared belief of the lawyers, and ours that RJ is innocent, and should not have ever been tried in the first place. 

RJ was pursued in what we believe to be some very interesting , if not unlawful ways. He is now charged with a Felony and is on the Sex Offenders Registry, yet was never arrested, booked and processed, or read his rights prior to court. He received a very simple court summons to an address that he had not lived at for 5 years prior and unfortunately, being relatively uneducated in the judicial system did not understand the due process that was owed to him. 

We want Justice for our friend so that he can resume his life with his wife, with no further unwarranted shame or worry of what comes next.

We are asking that you would partner with us for the justice owed to a good man, husband, and fellow human being. Thank you in advance.
