Hello, my name is Lloyd, I am 39, married, and I have 5 kids. A 17-year-old boy, 8-year-old girl, and twin boys who are 7. And we are raising our nephew. Who is 14 years old
I am a stay-at-home dad while my wife works.
On January 6th, 2021, I wanted to support President Trump so I went to DC. We went to the rally and then afterward followed everyone peacefully to the capital. On our way there my friends and I saw some food trucks and we started to go to them. That is when I heard explosions and I told them to stay there while I went to see if I could help anyone who might have gotten hurt. When I got there there was so much going on then I started to follow people going up the stairs thru the door and into the capital.
I followed but did not see any signs saying NO TRESPASSING, or barriers, and DID NOT touch anything. I walked in and walked around. When the police officers in the hall had it blocked I turned around and went back outside. I didn't remember much because my mind was trying to focus and started to block out a lot of what was going on.
Well months passed then the FBI came and questioned me and I told them what I could remember and they said because I corroborated I should be good to go. Months later they called me again and told me I had to turn myself in. I was being charged after all. Well, I did and was appointed a public defender but she was trying to get me to plead out on my first time talking to her. I worked too hard to make my family whole and found John Pierce who is now working with me.
I am not asking for a penny more than is needed for fighting for my freedom and for expenses for that is needed for travel for court ordered appointments.
Any money left over I want to donate to others who Mr. Pierce is representing.
Please help with anything you can I am looking at 2 years for only walking around the Capitol.
There were no signs nor no one saying I couldn't be in there.
