The Justice for Jake Story
When William "Jake" Fisher was 13 years old, he was raped for the first time by his mentor, soccer coach, and a trusted US Secret Service agent. He was groomed, trained, and violated for approximately 7 years, until he didn't even recognize his own humanity and value. In a desperate attempt to obliterate his reality, and end his life, he robbed a pharmacy before trying to commit suicide by way of an overdose. Thankfully, due to his non-violent nature, no one was physically hurt in the robbery, and Jake was found by the police before he could finish overdosing. Now we ask that the Commonwealth's Attorney in Harrisonburg, Virginia considers all of the circumstances that brought him to commit this crime, especially since Jake has admitted to his wrong doings, and cooperated with the police and the prosecutor. Lets also help Jake get better access to mental health resources, or proper medical treatment for his Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (See Important Links Section for Information on EDS).
Let's rally support for Jake by contacting the leadership and elected officials of the Commonwealth of Virginia, Rockingham County, and Harrisonburg, along with signing the Justice for Jake petition on causes.com!!
