Father Protecting His Family Needs Help with Legal Fees
Organized by: Jill Murphy
We as a family humbly ask for your help to raise money for Scott's (My husband and father of 4 children) Appeal Legal Fees. Scott has never been in trouble and he has always always stood up for others even taking them into our home when they didn't have a place to stay. Three years ago, he was protecting his family. What started out to be a kind act practically has destroyed a family. See we have always lived our lives and taught our children to try to see the good in every single person. Be realistic, but try and see the good. This is not a simple story. It's a story full of a history of violence, blackmail, antagonistic texts, constant calling, intimidation, assault, threats and heartbreak for both families involved. Scott, who adopted and raised my daughter since she was two years old was protecting his family from my daughter's biological father whom we had a permanent injuction against. A police officer even testified at the trial that when he was called to our house to help with the situation, he told Scott that this individual would not stop until he killed me or my daughter. As stated before, this is such a complex story that is difficult to tell. But the amount of time that he was sentenced to, along with questionable actions in the court proceedings are not just to this individual situation. Should only the individuals with money be able to have a fair opportunity in the criminal justice system? We have lost our house, our vehicles, pretty much everything; however, there are always blessings to be thankful for. As a friend once told me when I needed hope... The Lord will bless...he always does. Please consider helping Scott. He is missed so. He deserves another day in court or another chance for a higher court to look at the unique situation of his case along with the questionable actions in the court proceedings. Bless you for taking the time to read our fundraiser story.
