We have an important and disappointing update to share with you about the federal case against Peppy and Krystal.
We received the devastating news on Thursday, October 26th that the judge rejected an appeal regarding Peppy’s pre-trial incarceration. This means that Peppy is likely to remain locked up indefinitely, as the legal team prepares for trial.
Now that it seems clear that pre-trial detention is where he’ll remain for the foreseeable future, it’s time for us all to rally wholeheartedly behind Peppy and Krystal. There are many things we can do to keep building our loving network of support and keep light on this case to help influence the best possible outcome.
Here you can find the support flyer and poster to get the word out which is now more important than ever. This news comes as Peppy crosses the four-month mark of incarceration at a jail that offers prisoners no outdoor time whatsoever and no library. He needs your connection. It will absolutely help him get through this tough period. Please continue to write to Peppy and if you’re looking for ideas as to what to write this might help when you’re first putting pen-to-paper.
Here is his current address:
Butler County Prison
c/o Brian DiPippa
#42322 PO Box 9156
Seminole, FL 33775-9156
Krystal also continues to face serious political charges. We are grateful that she is not in any sort of pre-trial imprisonment, but she needs love too! Send her encouraging messages via email to [email protected] and we will make sure she gets them, and if you’re directly connected with her and able to, please consider sending her a note by snail mail as well!
Also, as we begin to move toward a trial, there will be new and significant amounts of funds needed to support Peppy and Krystal’s legal defense. You can contribute to that fund directly through our website. Keep your eyes open for upcoming financial requests and please
get in touch if you have any particular ideas of major donors who could help ease that burden. We’d be happy to answer any questions or explore easiest donation possibilities.
Thank you so much for your continued support!
With grief in struggle,
Peppy & Krystal’s Support Committee
