Jazz is a dear friend and linchpin in the Athens, OH LGBT community. An avid activist, faithful Unitarian, & frequent volunteer, they've made their mark on our town as a helper, giver, and joy maker. We come to you today on Jazz's behalf in their time of need: we're raising funds for their legal defense. They've been accused of arson, a charge that surprised all those close to them. Indeed, the accusations were a surprise to Jazz as well - a documented history of mental illness has left us all unsure of the precise events of the night in question. We can't speak to guilt or innocence, and would prefer to avoid speculation at this point, but one thing we all know is that this is out of Jazz's character.

The amount we’re asking would go towards any legal expenses incurred (lawyer, bail, court fees, etc), helping either to exonerate an innocent person or to provide an opportunity for a just and fair outcome to someone who's brought nothing but positivity to those around them. Guilt or innocence aside, all accused deserve a chance at justice, and the unfortunate truth is that the legal services needed to get that chance are often financially out of reach of many of us. Jazz has the support of a steadfast and loving community behind them, but there is only so many resources we can provide, particularly when so many of us are already stretched so thin. We place our hope and faith in the kindness of strangers. Any help you can give will be greatly appreciated.
