Rally for Cristian FernandezRALLY FOR CRISTIAN FERNANDEZ

Please join us on February 8th, 2012 at 7am, in front of the Duval County Courthouse in Jacksonville, Florida (330 East Bay Street), in a peaceful protest against the handling of Cristian Fernandez in the adult justice system. Cristian was barely 12 years old when he was charged as an adult in the death of his brother. If he is convicted on February 27th, he faces life without parole.

The case of Cristian Fernandez has attracted local, state, national and even international attention through a petition drive sponsored by Change.org. Almost 180,000 people and organizations signed a petition asking State Attorney Angela Corey to reverse the decision to try Cristian as an adult. Angela Corey has since proclaimed she does not "prosecute by petition".

You may also contact us at savecristian@yahoo.com if you are interested in attending the rally on February 8th. There is also additional information at savecristian.org.

The rally coincides with a 9am hearing at the courthouse where the judge will rule on motions filed by the defense.

EVENT DETAILS:
When: Wednesday, February 8, starting at 7am
Where: Duval County Courthouse, 330 East Bay Street
What: A peaceful rally/protest against the handling of Cristian in adult court
How: Participants will be given signs to hold and/or other visuals
Who: The rally is being organized by Melissa Higgins, Alicia Torres, and Change.org
