Danny's court costs

I'm raising this money and asking for community support for court costs, lawyer fees, and restitution due to the financial burden being to great. I have already begun payments and plan to continue making payments but have already started falling short of the monthly payments. the costs in total are more than $4,000 and on top of that I am also paying Rent, Water bills, Utilities and a Phone bill. I have asked for money before via paypal and it gets exhausting asking each individual time so I am hoping this campaign alleviates that stress. 

This has been extra frustrating due to the fact that the incident that led to my arrests was not something that I had intentions of doing. I was charged with financial of a forgery instrument (writing/making fake checks) but did not and do not know how to write or make fake checks. I was walking on the street and was approached by a vehicle that asked if I wanted a day laborer type job and when I agreed and got in I was then lied to and coerced into giving up my Drivers License. This was then used to write fake checks in my name. I was then driven away from the town I was in, had no way of contacting anyone and then threatened into cashing the checks mentioned.  I even wrote under duress on the backs of the checks but learned later in court that writing that meant nothing. When I told the lawyer and judge this I was met with skepticism. The judges specific words were "color me skeptical". It was a traumatic event that now is effecting a significant amount of my life. Because the charges are felonies and theft charges it now makes finding work quite a bit more difficult then before. 

I truly believe in community care and know I give back when I can and plan to continue that when I am set up again financially. I appreciate all that helps meet this goal and know it can get done within this year or two.
