WE NEED YOUR HELP!!!!
On June 15, 2011 my husband Jason Wilson and I were arrested in our home for growing marijuana. Due to NO cultivation law in the state of Alabama we are being charged for trafficking a Class A felony 10-99 years in state prison. This is our first offence, we spent the summer each on one million dollar bonds in Baldwin County Jail a high max federal holding facility.
I found out I was pregnant in jail and we were released on fifty thousand dollar bonds each . Since our arrest over 2 1/2years ago we have completed rehab, we are members of church and do charity work to less fortunate members of our community. Being released on bond we remain on color code drug testing which we report 2-3 times per month we have NEVER Failed a drug screen.
I am expected to be on trial November 2014 and my husband is on 24hr standby. A few months ago I had to fire my old attorney then hire a new one due to ineffective council. We still owe my new attorney about $6500 and we also need to hire an expert witness to re-examine and re- weigh the evidence and the cost of him to do these things will be $4,000 but it is crucial.
The A.D.A. wants to give us each 15yrs in prison (the only plea we have been offered) leaving our daughter Skye of 19months without her mother and father. DUE TO LACK OF FUNDS & RESOURCES WE ARE ASKING FOR ANY HELP AND SUPPORT WE CAN GET. PLEASE HELP US TRY TO KEEP OUR FAMILY TOGETHER .
We lost our home, our pets, and I cannot even get a job because of this severe pending charge. We have had to sell almost every almost everything we own, and we are doing everything we can. IF ANYONE IS ABLE OR WANTS TO HELP IT IS GREATLY APPRECIATED, PLEASE SHARE THIS PAGE.
Sincerely,

Danielle Wilson and Jason Wilson

words cannot express to you guys and I cannot say enough how thankful we are and appreciative to have so many people willing to help us in our situation. that truly means a lot and with every little bit is helping us to get this expert to re weigh/examine the evidence. It will give us an extremely high chance of lowering our charge and to keep our family together. so thank you all so very much I pray that God will bless you all in many ways. if anyone would like to talk to me or have any questions for me feel free to find me on Facebook and message me or email me and we would be happy to answer anything that anyone wants to know.
All Our Love, Peace & Respect
The Wilson Family

Have you thought of contacting or reaching out to Rob Kampia at MPP??? I'm sure the legal counsel who supports them would have some possible suggestions with this case as well...Turn to National Media, get this story out there...Put the pressure back on the system with public support for your cause... Good Luck...

It is obvious you are simply being harassed and they are trying to make an example of you. (BTW, your daughter Skye is absolutely gorgeous!) I am so sorry for what you are going through. But as you probably already figured out, we have the best judicial system MONEY CAN BUY. At least you had the opportunity to fire your counsel and get a new one before you went to court with him and lost big time. There is always the chance you will beat this with proper legal representation. I am not in a position to help you financially because I am still dealing with those legal bills of my own. However, what I can and will do is challenge ALL of my "friends" here on FB to each send you just $1. Almost all of them are advocates and activists for the cannabis movement, and $1 shouldn't be too much to ask. NOW, let's see how many of my 5,000 "friends" will come through for you. I hope they ALL do, but even if only half of them do, it should be a big help. My thoughts and my heart remain rooted in your plight and I am sending MegaBOPE (Bolts of Positive Energy) along with all the light and love I can gather. I wish you the best.

I want you guys to know that what you're going through will make you guys stronger and you're very lucky to have each other to go through this fight with. I know its absolute bullshit this is even happening to you guys to begin with but it will make you guys stronger and smarter people. who knows maybe it opened up your eyes to see something you needed to see in life. KEEP FIGHTING THE MACHINE AND DO NOT TAKE THE CRAPPY PLEA.
