Attorney Sets Up Go Fund Me Account For Spring Valley High Victim

October 29, 2015  |  

As we’ve been reporting about the assault at Spring Valley High, many of you have wondered how you could support the young girl, the victim in this case.

Thankfully, someone has taken it upon themselves to do just that.

Todd Rutherford, the attorney representing the young girl in South Carolina, has launched a Go Fund Me page on her behalf.

He writes:

We are the Rutherford Law Firm, LLC located in Columbia, SC. We currently represent the Spring Valley High School Victim who was assaulted by former Deputy, Ben Fields. 

Jane Doe was the victim of police brutality. While seated in her desk, doing her math work, former Deputy Ben Fields forcibly removed her from the desk by choking her, flipping the desk over while she was still seated, and slinging her six feet across the classroom by her clothes. As a result, she suffers injuries to her ribs, back, neck, shoulder; a broken arm, and abrasions to her face. The funds raised will be put towards medical costs, educational expenses, and any other expenses she has to endure.

The fundraiser, which was created just hours ago, is seeking to raise $25,000.

In just 3 hours, a little more than 360 people have raised over $10,000.

If you’d like to contribute to this girl’s recovery and her other needs, you can do so here.
