Quote
Dearest DDF Family!

I cannot begin to express my gratitude and thanks for the outpouring of love which I see, I am humbled by my fellow DDF'ers who took it upon themselves to join the fundraising effort and help me in my time of need. It gladdens my heart to be part of such a family, who will go out of their way to help their fellows in need, whether it is financial or otherwise. I will be forever grateful to all of you, to those who donated the prizes, to those who donated money, and to those who made this a reality.

Thanks again!



What's this all about?
If you've been following this thread you may know that a longtime DDF'er who has a young family was arrested for being on the scene at the time of the sting operation.  Many of you have probably even met him in the real world. Several generous DDF'ers have donated prizes to be raffled off to bring attention to the defense fund created on his behalf.

This is what the raffle number assignment will look like once the google doc is gone through and verified.

Nope. At 9 Yuneeq is finalizing the google doc, and then Myb will make the final sheet.

I have no idea how much these things cost. But even if, as you suggest, it can be done for less, I'm sure he can hire a better lawyer if he has more money.

don't retainers for top defense attorneys start in 6 digits? The article for the raising of money said it'd be 100,000's of dollars.

Sure, attorneys can be very expensive. However there isn't any guarantee that this will eventually end up going to trial. &, if it doesn't go to trial then it's quite possible that the attorneys fees will be less than $25,000.

I guess I'm just wondering what happens with the excess money?

And I would add that once the drawings begin, this thread should be locked and only one mod should update the thread as the winners are announced. After the drawings are over, the thread can be unlocked.
