Erroneously Charged Victim of Police Brutality
Organized by: Prince Siddhartha
Greetings and salutations! This campaign is a fundraiser for my lawyer fees regarding charges I thought had long since been taken care of in Baton Rouge Police department. In 2006 I was an undergraduate student at Southern University in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. After returning to SUBR for the fall semester an incident occurred where I was unlawfully detained and brutally mistreated by police officers. I was arrested without being read my Miranda rights, tackled to the ground by 3 police officers, and then had mace sprayed in my eyes after already being inside the police vehicle and handcuffed. The most atrocious part is BRPD then charged ME with simple battery on an officer, resisting arrest, entry/remaining after being forbidden and simple battery. For legal reasons I cannot disclose anymore information on this case. What I can say is: in 2006 I was one of the top ranking students at the College of Business at SUBR. Earlier that spring I had competed in the, then called, Cingular Wireless HBCU Challenge, where top students represented their respective College of Business in a series of marketing campaign challenges promoting AT&T products and services. I am a very productive member of society, working in entertainment as an aspiring artist, and also sports by way of officiating basketball. I've donated to a multitude of charities including the Robin Hood Foundation, a charity dedicated to alleviating problems caused by poverty in New York City, and the Boy and Girls Club of America. I've mentored at risk teenagers, and am now raising a 3 year old daughter to add value to this planet. Many of my fellow classmates knew about this incident and though I shared my story in hopes of garnering the support to fight this case, time elapsed and I returned to by normal life as a college student; I actually thought all of this was no longer in the court records until very recently which is why I'm asking for your help. I'm asking for donations to pay for my attorney Ms. Vanichchagorn located in Baton Rouge. She is a highly skilled lawyer with an impeccable record,who will confidently defend my case and push for a dismissal of all erroneous charges.
