Benjamin Wassell Legal Defense Fund
My husband is a well decorated, two tour Iraq war veteran and from his almost 8 ½ yrs of service he is currently 90% service-connected disabled. He suffered a TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury) from being blown up while serving in active duty in Iraq in 2006. There is no surgery or any medical way to fix this injury which he sustained while serving his country, protecting OUR freedoms.
My husband is being made an example in this prosecution. Ben has no criminal history. In time, his true character will become evident.
Ben is being prosecuted by the New York State Attorney General's office. Any donations collected through this fund will be used to pay for my husband to have the BEST defense attorneys possible to fight for his rights, mine, and yours.
Thank you in advance for your support and generosity.
With Ben not having his job anymore due to this conviction, and my work covering our daily living expenses with having a family of 4 with 2 young children, I have no more to stretch to give them. Ben is working doing his own business with remodeling and construction due to his now labelled status of a convicted felon, but the money and work is slow to come. If you know of anyone that would rather have work done that is local to us instead of just give a donation that will help us too.
I know some of the ppl watching this have some preconceived notions about the details of the case. And there is still even after the trial has came and went and all evidence was shown, doubt about the facts.
So to set the record straight one more time... HE WAS CONVICTED OF SELLING 1 NOT MULTIPLE RIFLES.
HE DID NOT SELL ANY RIFLES TO A FELON OR HE BELIEVED TO BE A FELON.
AND THIS IS AND ALWAYS HAS BEEN A 'SAFE ACT' CASE.
Please share or donate if possible now that the facts have been shown yet again.
I also got the last bill from the attorney $27,000 in the hole which takes into account the $7000 we've already paid them, just up to date. Without Ben having a job anymore (because his employer fired him after his conviction) and NY state's unemployment taking over 2 months to pay out, and not even being close enough for us to pay our bills and no employer willing to hire a felon, that is awaiting sentencing things are looking pretty meek and gloomy here in our world. I wish this nightmare was over and we can just wake up.
Hold your loved ones closer to you today and everyday; you never know when the time will come it may be your last. How ironic that on Memorial Day wknd one of our own heros here in the States is awaiting sentencing from the "Safe" Act which is anything but and takes away from our Bill of Rights & Constitution which he swore to protect and uphold, like all his fallen sister and brothers before us.
Please share this update with your friends and family, Donate if you can, and show up next Friday if you are avail to. Rally support if you can, united we stand divided we fall. Thank you in advance from Ben, myself and our beautiful lil babies.
I'm unemployed right now or I'd donate more to your legal fund, not to mention that unfortunately I'm going through my own battle with the treasonous governor and his "safe act". I wish you and your family all the best ... god bless and keep your powder dry, Dan Gesegnet
Mr. Al Rotundo is also a liberal trolling single scooter riding niagra resident that took used a stupid facebook meme quote to use as his own on his post. Has no regard for the rights of the man this donate page is about as he uses his free speech to spread this liberal garbage and his fourth amendment rights are very well protected...he just needs to learn how to change the security on his FB page.
yeah but it ABSOLUTLEY GUARANTEES not "entitles" you to the right to have the same weaponry as your infantry and police. The RIGHT was written in as the 2nd to protect your RIGHT to DEFEND your other RIGHTS from being taken advantage of. When they said "militia" "free" "shall not be infringed" that is what the were talking about. Plus the new law is completely cosmetic features which idiots can't see past a polymer stock...
On behalf of my brother Nathan HADDAD I deposited 1000$ to your citizens bank fund to help Ben fight this injustice. Stay strong.
Semper Fi Devil Dog. Keep up the fight!
We Americans will stand not behind you but beside you during these trying times. Stand tall stand strong
Semper Fi Marine. hold your ground and never give up. we who have served and spill the blood in the same mud have your back. My God keep you and your family in this hard time. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
