Hey everybody. I am trying to solicit information on people who have been charged with "Disorderly Conduct" because of a disability (Autism, Asperger's, Tourette's etc) as I have just been. My situation has some history, but I will try to be brief.
I am a 65 yr old white male, retired, who lives in a HUD assisted low-income multi person facility here in Springerville AZ. I am originally from CA, and have been stuck here for 4 years because my RV broke down here. I am the only Liberal Atheist in this building, with 31 religious conservatives. I also have Aspergers Syndrome, and am about to attempt to raise funds for my defense stemming from having just been arrested, for the first time in my life, for "Disorderly Conduct" because of my disability, and false accusations. I have checked the case law on Aspergers victims being harassed & persecuted because of their affliction, and it's pretty thin.
For me to stand up & advocate for others who have, or will have to go through this, I'm going to need funds which are beyond my means on Social Security, so am considering an Indiegogo campaign. I will need some help, & some evidence that I am not the only one to whom this has happened. No one should be arrested for a disability by ignorant & intolerant folk who have NO understanding of the situation. Being harassed and taunted for my politics is one thing, but this time they've gone too far & I need to make a stand.
That's about it. Just asking for info, here, not money. Would like to hear from others who have gone through this. As a first offense, I don't think I will be incarcerated, but I also think I will be ruled against due to the false accusations and fabrications about me, by mean-spirited and delusional individuals, so appeals will be expensive. The lowest figure for representation I have received so far is $3,000.00, and I will also need documentation of my diagnosis, which is a decade old. So be it. Someone needs to publicize this issue.
Please don't hesitate to ask for specific paperwork, if you wish. I can photograph everything I have & email it to you. Thanks for even taking the time to deal with this, & sorry for the bother. Mahalo.
