THE STORY:

My son Todd and daughter-in-law Vivian have been imprisoned in Venezuela on false charges of terrorism, weapons charges and attempted murder. If you know Todd and Vivian, you know they are not even remotely capable of such acts. They were actually in Venezuela to help Vivian’s sister, Mariana, but because Todd is an American citizen the government saw an opportunity to inflame anti-American sentiment by making it appear that he is a desperate criminal.
They have been sent to the state of Barinas, where there are some of the worst prisons in the world. Due process and human rights are being completely ignored and we have been told they are not likely to survive long in a Barinas prison.
This is a desperate situation for many reasons. Venezuelan prisons are extremely dangerous places and officials must be paid off to prevent abuse ... and worse. Todd suffers from Tourette’s Syndrome and obsessive/compulsive disorder - requiring anti-anxiety medication, and none is provided in the prison system. We need your help to send money for food and protection, and to pay for attorney’s fees. We also need your prayers. Our family is at the mercy of a corrupt system that is completely unpredictable. 
Please help save Todd and Vivian.
