Support the family and loved ones of Deion Jones in a fundraising effort to retain legal counsel who’s willing to provide a vigorous and competent defense.
     To friends, family and believers in justice,
This fundrasing effort  is established to hire a private attorney for Deion “Flip” Jones. 
     As you are aware Flip is charged with a capital offense and is in need of an attorney who is capable and willing to provide a competent and vigorous defense.

     Being a young African American male in today's society is difficult on several fronts.  Our young men are most often prejudged and stereotyped by appearance.   With this in mind, the families of his mother, Theresa A. Jones and father, Robert Parker ask for your prayers for Deion, his daughter and our extended family as we go forward to trial. 

     With the severity of the charges Flip is facing, we are also asking for your help to assist in supplementing the cost of an experienced attorney and investigators to ensure that our legal system provides him with fair treatment and a speedy trial. While court appointed representation is available, the truth of the matter is our legal system has digressed to such a state that the poor and disenfranchised defendants are the least likely to receive fair representation in our courts. The pursuit of justice should not be based upon if an individual has the resources to afford counsel yet often the court appointed attorneys are overworked, underpaid and disillusioned leaving those with little to no income at the mercy of an overextended and sometimes biased judicial system.

     As his family, our goal is to ensure Flip gets fair and equal treatment/representation.  We would greatly appreciate, if you would please forward this request to your friends and family who you feel are interested in helping to ensure Flip has qualified legal representation.
On behalf of the family of Deion “Flip” Jones, thank you for your prayers, love, and support!
