In the last 24 hours, our family has experienced a devastating blow. My son Spenser has been accused of a horrid, inexcusable crime. One that given our family's history is painfully clear he would never commit. His kind heart, loving spirit, strong work ethic and ridiculous sense of humor simply prevent him from ever being that kind of person. Everyone who knows him knows all of this to be true.
Unfortunately, for legal reasons, I'm not currently at liberty to discuss the details of the situation; suffice it to say, when our children need us, we jump into action. This is especially true when you know the accusation simply isn't possible. Not by his word alone but also by the actions he has lived his entire life. He has never been in trouble with the law and has been a good and helpful person to anyone and everyone who has ever met him. This accusation breaks my heart as the woman who raised him but also for the others involved.
Please know that it's hard for me to come to you ask for assistance, and even more difficult when I'm not able to explain, and I'd like to assure everyone reading this that as soon as I'm able to discuss circumstances I will most definitely do so - while still protecting the privacy of those who need it, of course.
We are facing mounting legal fees to defend our boy in addition to the time we
will lose working, traveling, and preparing for this fight for Spenser's future. We need your help and assistance. Even if you can't help monetarily, spread the word far and wide. Share this page, use the hashtag #SavingSpenser, talk about the cruelty of wrongly accusing a person of violence and the lifelong effect it could have on an otherwise innocent and blameless person.
We have an immediate need to get to $5k as soon as possible, hopefully in the next week for the retainer fee for a wonderful attorney who will work hard to make this right! The rest of the $10-15 thousand we will need we will be able to pay out over time.
So please, again. Share, talk, post, and if you can afford to, even a dollar, donate.
Thank you from everyone in the Long-Jordan and Smith families.
Your love and support is so welcome, so appreciated and so needed.
