TriPp Lewis Legal Defense Update:
We are thrilled to report that based on an agreement reached this week with the District Attorney’s office, the criminal charge against TriPp Lewis will be dismissed when he returns to court on August 16th.
There is no admission of guilt and no new restrictions placed on TriPp going forward, other than an order that prevents him from going within 300 ft. of the residences of certain board members and officers of the VMFA.
There is a token amount of community service required. TriPp had hoped to fulfill this requirement by volunteering at the Confederate Memorial Chapel, but his offer was refused by the Lee-Jackson Camp. Instead, he will spend his time helping with Confederate grave locating and marker restoration.
This development is especially favorable, as his attorneys were hoping to clear the criminal case as quickly as possible so that they can concentrate on preparation for the upcoming civil suits, which will address the issues of civil rights violations, both in the case of TriPp being denied the right to honor his ancestors/carry a flag on the property, as well as violations against TriPp’s young daughter during the “arrest”.
In the meantime, TriPp wishes to express his deep gratitude and sincere appreciation for all of the encouraging notes, letters, messages and good wishes, and especially for the incredible outpouring of financial support from all over the Confederation. The fees for this dismissal have been paid, and any all donations over that amount or received moving forward, will be used to fund the civil lawsuits that will bring justice to those who have dishonored the Confederate Veterans who lived and died on the grounds of Confederate Memorial Park. He wants to assure ANYONE who might think that this agreement was a compromise in any way… that we have only yet begun to fight to RETURN the flags and RESTORE the honor!
