raising money to get an attorney


My name is James H. Crawford III. I don’t know how to separate my situation from the large amount of everyday problems, the disaster’s, and tragedies that take place in a lot of our lives. so i would like to take the time to tell you why i’m in desperate need of some help. 

Ive been wrongly convicted and sentenced to 23 years in the state of virginia for robbery, malicious wounded, armed burglary, and shooting in a occupied dwelling are the charges i’ve been accused of. all of which they say took place at once. i had a out of town friend who moved to my city and gets himself in a world of trouble, and was looking for a way to get out of his troubles. not only did he pick me to say i was involved in the crime he committed, he told the local police i shot him in the leg during this so called robbery. when he was shot he was wearing pants. THERE WAS NOT BULLET HOLE IN HIS PANTS. police took gun powder residue from his clothes and hands, indicating that he shot a fire arm. he gave police 3 different stories of how he got shot before settling on a fourth saying i did it. his story seem to evolved over time as police recovered more evidence on him for robbery. i’ve provided a copy for you of a news paper article and the link, that states this man shot himself. they still allowed him to come to court to testify and say i shot him and planned this robbery. i’ve also provided a signed letter of confession from this man, saying he lied under oath on me in court because he did not want to get a life sentence, and he could not have me locked up no longer for something i did not do.  with all this evidence saying i did not commit this crime, i’ve still been sitting in prison for 7 years trying to do everything to get my freedom back. no one would help me, but now i’ve found a lawyer that can help me get my life back, and that’s why i’m asking for a small donation to hire this lawyer. Thank you for taking the time out to read my story. If you can, and willing to help me words can’t explain how much that would mean to me!! anything will help. 
PS. if you want to read more about my case to ensure i’ve been 100% truthful with you before donating anything please feel free to look me up. i’m a open book. my doc# is 1202799. Again thank you so much
