Va Flagger:  Tripp Lewis Legal Defense Update 3-10-13

We are thrilled to report that thanks to MANY generous donations, we were able to quickly raise enough money to write a check to the attorney for the retainer and allow preparation to begin for his defense in the criminal proceedings.
On March 21st, Mr. Lewis will appear before a judge in Richmond to inform the court of his choice of legal counsel.  At that time, a trial date will be set.
In the meantime,  attorneys have also been engaged to begin research and preparation for pursuing the Civil issues involved in the arrest, and TriPp has returned to his vigil, standing with the Va Flaggers.  Our numbers and support continue to grow, and news of this gross injustice has had quite the opposite effect of what the VMFA might have hoped, as more and more Patriots are joining in our efforts
We hope to have more news to report after the March 21 court appearance, including the trial date, so that we can invite all to come and show  support for TriPp in court.
The following is a list of those who have so generously donated to the TriPp Lewis Legal Defense Fund.  We have been overwhelmed by the outpouring and will never be able to adequately express our appreciation and thanks for your generosity.
God bless you, each and every one!
