The Shelley Joseph Legal Defense Fund

On April 25, 2019,  Shelley Richmond Joseph,  a judge sitting in the district court division of the Massachusetts courts,  was indicted by a federal court on charges of obstruction of justice relating to a case involving an undocumented immigrant and an agent of Immigration & Customs Enforcement who was present in the courthouse.    The case represents monumental prosecutorial overreach and has placed Judge Joseph--who has been suspended without pay pending the disposition of the case--in a position of having to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars to afford a quality legal defense to federal charges that carry with them lengthy prison terms.   The funds are needed immediately in order to secure the services of counsel.  Please ensure that justice is done by contributing to Judge Joseph's defense fund.    WE REQUEST THAT ALL DONATIONS BE ANONYMOUS.    Thank you for standing up for justice and against prosecutorial excess!!
