I was arrested during the George Floyd Riots in Washington DC.
I , Dominique Maxey is seeking help in regards to my case . I am currently out on bonds. I attend all my court hearings from home on video or via telephone. I have attended all my hearings and called into pretrial every week since May 2020 .
My girlfriend and I was arrested on May 31st 2020 on our way home from getting pizza. I was tackled to the ground by 5 police officers and my girlfriend was man-handled in front of me.
My girlfriend was released with no paper, but unfortunately they kept me and charged me with bank larceny.
I eventually was let go by the judge (06/02/2020) and placed on bonds.
I am seeking other options rather than going to trial . The only other option presented was to provide character letters for a lesser charge . My punishment would be probation and house detention and a felony. This was to be offered by Public Defender to provide to the prosecutor
The charge has changed 3 times starting with Bank robbery then went to Bank Larceny now it's "Attempted Bank Robbery" because no force was used and no teller was present at the time of the proposed incident.
I have been a active uplifter in the DMV (Washington DC , Maryland, Virginia) area.
Since the age of 18 I worked many jobs in the DMV: Washington Gas Energy Services, Fastfood jobs : KFC/ Taco Bell , McDonald’s , Wendy’s.
Well known restuarants in DC such as Aleros and The Smith. I also worked other jobs like America woodmark , Home Depot, & did landscaping with my uncle I have done many Security jobs in the DMV. I have now built myself to where I’m currently building my own business as a personal trainer and a landscaper . My goal is to eventually expand my business and hire family and friends.
, To provide funds for this business I was given an opportunity to serve my community as a firefighter. In order for me to obtain this position I can not have a felony on my record.
I Created this GOFund me to Help me , get a Federal Defense Attorney. My public defender stated during my court case that I have a mental illness due to some mis information he received. I have stated on my behalf I'm Dominique Malik Maxey beneficeny of the trust and I wish to represent myself. But I'm unable to represent myself until I prove to the court that I am competent enough to do so.
In the meantime I need a attorney that is fully devoted to me, my innocence and my freedom. So that he/ she can provide support, and legal advice to ensure that my record remains clean and that I don't spend one day in jail or in a psych ward.
