Nicole Gainey-Falsely Arrested

I was arrested for letting My Son go to the park .4 of a mile from my home for a felony child neglect & had a $3750.00 bond to come home that night and since then our life has been very hard, I can not find work, noone will hire me, so I am way behind in my rent and I have had our lights & water shut off, I have been cleaning houses & mowing lawns,yardsales selling our belongings, anything I can do to make any money to keep my kids with their needs and keep electric & water but without steady work its impossible to get caught up, and even get the little things we need like shampoo/condi. toothpaste soap ect. My Son is having all different issues that he is in therapy for since my arrest for this,like nightmares ,scared of even going to check the mail alone in fear that I will be arrested again if he's not in my eyesight all the time, he is shy,soft spoken, very timid and before all of this he was very outgoing carefree happy little boy , that day this happened the police arrived at the park to find him playing and lifted him up over a fence under his arms to get him out of the playground area instead of just letting walk around, the police put him in back of their cop car without telling him what was going on ,or explaining to him he was not in trouble they were just taking him home, did not tell him nothing,treating him like a criminal and came to arrest me in front of him and as they let him out of the back of the car he says to me as he walked past me "mommy I'm sorry I wanted to go play at the park, I'm sorry I got you in trouble "I have had to assure him this is or was in no way at all his fault but this has been a horrific experience for him and myself and my 18yr daughter too, because all her friends were calling her after seeing us on the news asking her questions, I really want a steady job , my name has been tarnished in my town that I've grown up in since I was 3 yrs old, I am now 35yr with my 8yr son & 18yr daughter I have always worked my hole life since I was 15yr but this situation has really affected us in so many ways, so I am just asking for help to get us caught up til I can find work,which is also hard because My Son is scared to be away from me now & help with a hiring a lawyer to sue the cops for doing this to me & my kids. I really think I need to hire someone to start a lawsuit, My Son is going to therapy regularly and other things too, these things cost money that I don't have You can google my name and read my story all over the news.(Nicole Gainey) This was not right what has happened and I just want our life's back the way they were before my arrest. It is very sad to see My Son have nightmares and be scared of everything & other issues that are all from the police  arresting me and charging me with a felony child neglect for allowing My Son to walk & play at a public park that is closer than his school that it is OK for him to walk or bike too, I had a $3750.00 bond just to be able to come home that day which was a very horrible experience for myself & My Son to see me arrested, he said sorry mommy I wanted to go play, he thought it was his fault, this has been a horrific experience and I pray no other family goes through this, please even if you can donate something small, it all will help,this has affected us in a terrible way. Thank you so much for reading our story and God bless you!
