I’m letting you know this simply because letters in support of the victim are still needed.

I have been emailed by Darren, who said that on August 15th, he was told by the court that they had only received two letters in support of the victim. If this is true, it’s certainly disturbing and must be corrected. I know that I mailed mine last week [as did I – mb]. I’m also concerned because while I was searching to verify the fax number (yes, it’s correct), I also found the address above in numerous places, and it’s the first time I’ve seen a P.O. Box along with the address [ditto – mb]. So, for that reason I think I’m going to re-fax my letter today to make sure that they’ve received it. I don’t see how it could hurt.
Please write and fax a letter of support for the victim ASAP.
Cara also posts a sample form letter that she encourages folks to use as a creative jump-off, but please make sure to put it in your own words — this isn’t an astroturf campaign.
