After more than a year of pretrial incarceration and the associated legal costs, Eric McDavid is preparing to go to trial and needs to raise funds to mount the best defense possible. Despite the fact that no crime has been committed, Eric is facing 20 years in prison because of the efforts of a highly paid government informant. Eric's two co-defendants are cooperating with the government so Eric and his attorney are left to fight this outrageous charge alone. To prepare for trial Eric must hire investigators and experts, as well as continue paying his attorney. This will cost thousands of dollars. We are trying to raise as much money as possible, as quickly as possible, so that this enormous financial burden will no longer fall on his family. There is currently no date set for trial, but it could begin as early as April. We will announce the date as soon as it is set.
