UPDATE - Friday, August 13th
ROGER'S BAIL REVIEW ADJOURNED UNTIL AUGUST 25TH
Unfortunately, Roger's bail review ran out of time again today. Due to scheduling conflicts with the various parties involved, the next court appearance to resolve Roger's bail situation will be at 12:30pm on Wednesday, August 25th. Final summations have been complete so on August 25th the Judge will be handing down her decision.
Roger wanted us to thank everyone who attended yesterday and today. He appreciated that people took time from work to be there. He's optimistic he'll be released, and feels really supported by everybody. Thank you!
Thank you to everyone that came out for even a few minutes yesterday and today. We really want to stress how important it is that we pack the courtroom on August 25th. It's really vital that the court see that Roger is part of a community of people that love him and who want him to be treated with respect and due process. It may be Roger's last chance to make bail before trail, which could mean he spends months in prison.
PACK THE COURTROOM! 12:30PM WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 25TH!
SOLIDARITY FOR OUR FRIENDS WHO ARE NOT FREE!
