Sen. Ross' "Friends" raising $1.25M to pay his legal fees

Ross expects more than $1.2M in legal fees | The Montgomery Advertiser | montgomeryadvertiser.com
The Montgomery Advertiser reports: Although Quinton Ross was found not guilty of the 16 charges against him, the state senator ex­pects to owe more than $1.25 mil­lion in attorney fees and other ex­penses from the federal corruption trial that ended Aug. 11.

"There's no price that you can put on freedom," said Ross, the Montgomery Democrat. "We thank God for being with us."

The Friends of Quinton T. Ross Jr., Legal Defense Fund and Trust recently sent a letter, one of which was obtained by the Montgomery Advertiser, outlining the "unwar­ranted prosecution" and the cost to Ross and his family.

The trustees for the fund re­quested "your contribution of $15,000 or not less than $7,500."
