Hello we are a group of old friends of Mary that have come together to help her in a time of need. If you're getting this fundraiser link you are probably old friends with Mary as well.

Mary was arrested on July 3, 2018 in Baldwin County, Alabama. For her privacy we do not want to share her exact charges, but they are quite serious. She's facing several years in prison. Because of this we would like to hire a private attorney that can help secure her a good plea deal that limits the number of years she will be imprisoned.

We're currently in conversation with Matthew Peterson, a defense attorney in Mobile Alabama. He is a seasoned criminal defense lawyer that has sincere sympathy for his clients that end up under the thumb of the judicial system. He also has been thus far very helpful and attentive to our questions about the process Mary now faces. He also is a Harvard Law Graduate. His fees are between $5,000 and $8,000 depending on how many court dates she has.

Mary has a long history of supporting many of us through life crises and generally being a pillar of the radical community in Asheville.  Now's the time for us to be that for her.

Please take note, if we are unable to come up with the full amount to secure an attorney or if we raise more money than needed we will send those funds to Mary's sister for the purpose of paying legal fees to gain custody of Mary's youngest daughter.

 

Thanks in advance everyone,

Finn, Matt, Janet, Dave, Courtney, and Wednesday
