Free Trevor Reed

Trevor was arrested in Moscow Russia in August of 2019.  He was visiting Russia for the summer to take Russian language classes for his bachelor’s degree and spend time with his girlfriend, a resident of Moscow.  While attending an office party with his girlfriend he became severely intoxicated or drugged.  Later, the police were called and they took him to the police station instead of a medical facility which is the norm for intoxicated Russian citizens.  A few hours after his detainment he was charged with a Level II crime of intentionally endangering the lives of the police officers who brought him to the jail.  He faces a prison sentence of up to 10 years.  Even though evidence has been presented to disprove the allegations, Trevor has been held for over 6 months.  The accusations in the case appear to keep changing.  Based on the evidence or lack thereof, we believe the charges have been manufactured or exaggerated for some reason.  Trevor does not remember the events of the evening, but there is evidence to disprove the accusations made against him.  Please help us bring this situation to the attention of government officials and bring Trevor home.

Additional details of the irregularities with the case will be made public when appropriate.


Contact your federal government representatives by phone, email, or in person.
You can help Trevor by contacting your federal representatives including the President of the United States, Senators, and Congressional members.  Those members of foreign services, intelligence, or veteran’s committees could be especially important in gaining support for him.  If you are a resident of Texas, please contact the governor.

Ask government representatives, and the Ambassador to Russia, to speak out on Trevor’s behalf.  We believe they have a duty to acknowledge unfair treatment of Americans abroad.  Request that the Ambassador meet with Trevor, publicly comment on his situation, and ensure he or his representatives are present at all trial hearings.  Please ask for the Department of State to have books in English delivered to Trevor.  Your voices are extremely important, and your efforts greatly appreciated.


We understand everyone’s desire to help Trevor during this difficult time.  However, we request that you DO NOT CONTACT THE MEDIA OR COMMENT on media posts regarding Trevor.  The most supportive and kind words can be construed in a negative manner by the media or the courts and have a negative impact on Trevor’s situation.  We can not emphasize this point enough!  Thank you.

Trevor has been incarcerated for over six months and his trial will continue indefinitely.  The Reed family continues to bear the full burden of legal expenses including – expert studies and examinations, interpreters, translation services, additional food for Trevor, and travel.  Any and all sized donations are greatly appreciated.

The Reed Family
