The bail on the warrant is set at $44,000, so a bail bondsman charging 10%, is $4,400. I am fine with using a court appointed lawyer once the wheels get turning, because I have faith in our system and with the history of mental illness and him wanting to work with my defense, I truly believe the truth & justice will prevail.
The thing that breaks my heart the most is Karma, my 16 year old pup, has congestive heart failure and if I sit in jail awaiting trail, she will likely die in the coming months without me there holding her. Tonight I sit, holding my best friend & sobbing my eyes out, because after 16 beautiful years of companionship & love shared, this may be the last night I get to hold her.
I hate being in a place to have to ask for anything at all, but I beg of my friends to please have faith in me, and help my mom & dad assure I don’t sit in jail for months awaiting trail. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
After strong consideration, I am going the route of hiring an attorney, so that way the money goes further. It would essentially be throwing it away to just get a bail bond, and with the same amount of money, I could do a jail “walk-thru” and also be retaining legal representation.
It just makes sense to go about this in this manner.
I hate everything about this. I hate having to ask for anything, it’s embarrassing, but the way folks are giving is a blessing & I see it as just that. And that gives me some hope back that this process has sadly stripped me of. I really appreciate all of the donations, the well wishes, and the Facebook shares for my campaign.
It means a lot!!
The lawyer I talked too costs $4500, but we can get started once I have $2500, and then do payments. At that point I can at least get this warrant taken care of.
I hate living like this. It does a number to your psyche, constantly looking over your shoulder knowing that any interaction with an officer means off to jail I go. So as soon as I hit that $2500 mark, I’ll finally get to breathe a lot easier.
I love yall!
Thank you SO much for the donations!
