Update on Luke O'Donovan, Call for donations

From let luke go

It has been over a year since Luke was arrested and charged with five felonies after being assaulted on New Year's Eve. We apologize for the long delays between updates. Luke's case has been moving very slowly. He has had only one minor court appearance since his release in January of 2013.

We write now to publicize Luke's next court date, which will be a motions hearing set for Thursday, January 30th at 10am. At court, Luke's lawyers will argue for Luke to be granted a Self-Defense Immunity Hearing, where a case would be made for Luke having acted in self-defense. If a Self-Defense Immunity Hearing finds that Luke did indeed act in self-defense, Luke would be immune from prosecution under Georgia law.

So far we have raised over $9,000 to cover Luke's lawyer fees, bond, and other court and jail costs. There have been fundraisers across the country, and for this we are grateful. Unfortunately, we still need $4,000 to cover the rest of Luke's legal fees from now through any potential trial. Any and all donations will be appreciated. If you can't contribute by yourself, please consider holding an event to raise money. Previous events to raise money have included a dinner and movie, dance parties, poster sales, and shows. You can donate here.

Additionally, if you would like to show up to support Luke at his court date, your presence will be welcome. Please come dressed for court. It will be held at:

Fulton County Superior Court
136 Pryor Street
Atlanta, GA 30303
