Help a father to be there
Organized by: Ian Peterson
This money is to finish paying the rest of my restitution of a grand theft charge back when i was 18. I had a codefendant and when we were sentenced the judge arranged our restitution in the way where neither of us could be free until it was completely paid he then ran away to hide somewhere on the east coast with friends and left me with the entire amount, i just want to move on. The worst i have done since then are a $5 parking ticket and a 9 over the speed limit speeding ticket. I have actually had my half payed off a year and a half ago. Due to providing for my daughter i was short and missed several months of payments and now im going to court for 'failure to pay'. It is a motion to revoke and that means that the judge has the 7yrs hanging over my head to sentence me with. I cant miss the next 7yrs of my daughters life, shes only 1. Nor can i leave her mother to provide alone. With still providing for her and the bare minimum for me and bills im not left with much extra to gather money for the restitution. The more i can pay within 8 weeks the better my chances of being there for my daughters life. If i can pay it off completely before i go to court ill be completely done and can finally get on with my life and have a little more to give her a little more. Shes my world i just dont want to be "that dad". Any amount is greatly appreciated more the i can explain.
