We need help to get a lawyer for Russel's defence. Also for expenses for surviving child and mom.They have charged him for Bellas death. He would never hurt his children, and we need money to mied'sure he gets the best help we can. Anything helps. Please don't let this injustice of loosing his child to an accident, and being torn from his family go wrong for lack of good lawyer. He loves his family and country, he served 2 tour's in Iraq and was blown up 2 ied's and medical discharged. Please help Russel get home.

So, Who wants go to prison for two years? You vary easily could. All of this has been going on because of a technicalitie in the law that states that ANY injury to a child weather it is an accident or a tragedy doesn't matter you can be changed even a minor injury like Zoey. The sentence is 2 years minimum 20 years max! We need to start working on getting this law changed or repealed. So if anyone has ideas where to start let me know. Truly this law could affect anyone!

I also forgot to tell you that yesterday, supposed to be the court date that the Smith County Texas DA saw fit to subpoena A 3 year old child to court! Yes it was Zoey and yesterday happened to be her 4th birthday. Anyway they the DA subpoena everyone who is on Russel's side? Then they get upset with Michelle for bringing zoey. She had to prove they requested her.they made her leave no children aloud in the court.

If it's already been ruled an accident what are they doing with keeping him locked up and going through a hearing to see if there's a case? I don't get it.

Everyone that has met Linney and Mickey knows that they had nothing but love for both of their baby girls. Smith county is as crooked as they come. Please know that you all are in our prayers.

It seems there is a growing trend to make parents into criminals. So disturbing. This could have happened to any parent. I'm so sorry for your huge loss. Will say a prayer for you, your family, and your daughter. Don't despair and keep strong.
