On July 5th, Nicole made her first court appearance since her plea agreement was denied by Judge Larry Burns on June 20th. After much consideration, Nicole decided to withdraw her plea and request a trial. She is scheduled for her next court appearance on September 27th for pre-trial motions.
This has been a long process for Nicole, and unfortunately she still has some time to go before her case is resolved. Please send words of encouragement and solidarity to firstname.lastname@example.org — she would love to hear from you.
Please also donate to the support fund if you can. As Nicole’s case gets drawn out and Joseph continues to serve his sentence in federal prison, continued donations are important to making sure that they both have the support they need throughout these times. You can donate now here. Thank you.
