Updates on CeCe’s case (we need help making bail!)

Hi everyone, here are a few updates on the progress of CeCe’s case, and how you can support her!

1. Court/legal update
2. Bail money and collateral needed!
3. Upcoming meetings and community events

1. **Court/legal update**
This morning in court, CeCe’s bail was reduced to $75,000 with the following conditions: electronic home monitoring; no contact with witnesses; no drug and alcohol use; and remain law abiding. Her trial date was set for January 9th.

2. **Bail money and collateral needed!**
Now that CeCe’s bail has been reduced, we want to move as quickly as possible to get her out of jail! We need to raise $7,500 immediately to cover the costs of her bond. WE ARE ALSO SEEKING COLLATERAL, which is necessary in order to be able to bond her out. Collateral would be a house or other asset of similar value; if you have something like that and you’d consider putting it up to make it possible for CeCe to be out of jail pending trial, please let us know! Contact mpls4cece@gmail.com or call Katie at 612-363-7574. (Funds are also needed for commissary and other related incarceration costs.)
