Innocent American Father in Mexican Jail

We are starting this fund for our father Mark Lamont, who was arrested August 16, 2012 in Bucerias, Nayarit, Mexico.

He is a 63 year old American, US Vet, retired engineer, father to my brother & myself, brother to 3, and friend to many.
 
He has lived in Mexico for many years and has found a peaceful life there. I have visited many times, in fact had my wedding in Puerto Vallarta, during the Swine Flu hype if you can believe it, to which all of our family attended. It was a great time! 
 
But this is a shock, it's a nightmare for my father and our family and we need to help him raise money for his legal funds.
He has been accused of violating a young boy. We know what the reaction must be, especially if you don't know our father. But please read on. Why would a 63 year old risk his entire life now? His integrity? His respect? His trust with his family & friends?
Simple. He wouldn't. 
Our father would never commit this crime! He has full support of myself and our entire family. He has a clean record in the U.S. He has never had a problem in Mexico. He is not guilty!
 
He has written a letter that we have posted on Facebook regarding this incident for all to read.
 
We are trying to raise $20,000 for his legal fees and need your help not only raising money, but spreading the word as well. 

 
 
Warmest regards,
Sierra Arden & Kai Lamont
