Opening Statements to Take Place on Monday, July 8

Dearest Supporters,
Last week was the beginning of jury selection for Donovan’s second trial.
There are two jurors left to be selected, but we anticipate opening arguments to begin tomorrow, Monday July 8, 2013 at 2pm.

Please join us. Your presence in the courtroom is invaluable.
Your love and support means everything to Donovan and his family, it’s also important that the jury see that Donovan has the support of his community.

This is also a great opportunity to observe the court system in action.
Donovan has been blessed to have attorney Michael Warren on the case for his second trial. It is thanks to him that Donovan was finally granted bail on appeal.
Mr. Warren is a well respected civil rights attorney. He was responsible for freeing the men wrongly prosecuted and convicted in the infamous Central Park Jogger case.
If you haven’t already seen it, we highly recommend watching The Central Park Five to learn more about this case.
Come watch him bring the truth to the light.

The trial is expected to last 2-3 weeks
Court is in session Monday – Friday
Monday -Thursday: The days begin at 9am. Lunch is at 1 and court resumes at 2pm
Friday is a 1/2 day: 9am-1pm.
Please come dressed to impress. You may wear your “Free Donovan” t-shirts but you will have to cover them before entering the courthouse.
