Asked over 1 year ago - Baltimore, MD

I am a college student that was recently accused of rape. I am an excellent and motivated student. I have never done anything wrong in my life.

I have great aspirations and recently completed my first year with deans list both semesters while having to deal with this horrifying experience. On top, im having financial difficulty. I'm in dire need of a lawyer who is compassionate and can help me out. I want to become a
doctor and maybe one day I will be able to repay you. Thank you!
