Safe Schools Legal Fund

Scott and Jess Smith’s 15 year-old daughter was sexually assaulted by a biological boy in a girl’s bathroom at her school. 

This assault occurred in an environment where violent assaults don’t have to be reported and while boys are allowed unfettered access to girls bathrooms and locker rooms.

While waiting to share his concerns at a June 22 school board meeting, Scott was heckled and badgered by a known agitator stating that his story wasn’t true. A sheriff deputy grabbed Scott by the shoulder from behind and the two ended up on the floor. Scott was charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest  which are now being appealed. 

The Smith’s court costs are adding up and will likely total more than $75K. 

Please help see justice realized for Scott, Jess and their daughter.
