Benjamin Wassell Legal Defense Fund

Ben Wassell, (my beloved husband and father to both of our beautiful children, daughter aged 4 and son aged 4 months) is the first man charged with violating the unconstitutional SAFE Act Gun Law here in New York State.

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.
