Kia's daughter was just about to have her first birthday when he was taken to prison for a crime he didn't commit. Since then, his second child was born and his daughter celebrated her second birthday.

 

All this before a trial has even taken place. In fact, Kia spent over 13 months in jail before family and friends were able to pull together over $2 million in collateral to post his bond- an amount well beyond his means and remarkably high for a man with no previous criminal history whatsoever.

 

Anyone who knows Kia Divband knows what a kind, loving and gentle person he is. He dedicated his life to childcare and he was truly great at it. A doting and devoted father, he has never been in trouble with the law-EVER.

 

It has since become clear to defense experts that a child that was in his care, who tragically died, was not killed, but rather suffered from dire medical conditions. We pray for her and our hearts are broken for her family. But to take an innocent man's life away does not serve justice for anyone.

 

In less than 3 weeks Kia will take the stand at a jury trial to speak for his innocence and to clear his name. He needs his legal team and experts to be 100% ready and we can help them be!

 

I know that many of you care deeply about this trial and have already helped tremendously. Together we can help secure the final resources Kia's legal team needs to make sure he has the best defense possible. Because even though the facts lean in his favor, the State has made it clear that they intend to pursue this case. Let's help him speak his truth and stay home, with his wife and two children, as a free man!
