Freedom for a Father

Hi everyone! My 22 year old cousin is currently incarcerated and I am raising money for a better lawyer. He has been in there for about a year with no bond or a trial. The public defender that we are currently working with does not communicate with us and we do not see any progress with his case. The lawyer we are currently trying to get for him is asking for $10,000. He was at the wrong place at the wrong time. I am sure we all can understand at a young age we place ourselves in certain situations that we could have avoided. Unfortunately, he missed the birthday of his 2 year old twins while incarcerated, he will spend his birthday in jail and missed his third daughter's birth. We would like to get him out as soon as possible, for that to happen we need to give the lawyer the full amount to  get started. Ideally we would like to raise this money within 2 months. This will mean so much to our family and his kids as he misses them a lot. He was very present in their lives before all this happened, it is hurting him  that he can not be there for them at the moment. We know that is a lot and appreciate anything that you can give! Thank you in advance. (:
