Chris Diaz was travelling through Texas on his way to his great grandmothers funeral. He was stopped and arrested for a half ounce of medical hash. He was facing 5-99 years under Texas Law. He has currently been sentenced to three years in a Texas prison.
imagine being left in solitary confinement for months being told you were going to be sentenced to 99 years over a half ounce of hash.
We're taking a love offering for attorney fees and other expenses. Here's a website that explains more. http://www.chrisdiazassistancefund.bbnow.org/about.php
We've raised 900 bucks so far. With another 100, a NORML associated attorney (Paul Quinzi) will go up and talk with Chris. His bill is 2 thousand, but he'll start for a thousand. It's reasonable because he's a couple hours away.
Anyways, if you feel any compassion for a kid who's life just turned into a nightmare you can't wake up from, please donate a few bucks to the cause.
You can also write him letters, and call him (there's info at the website) and maybe give him a word of encouragement. Any little thing you can do to support him will make a difference, letters, prayers, donations.
you can also find him on facebook as Chris Diaz and FreeChrisDiaz if you want to connect with others who are trying to help him.
Thank you for your support!
