Justice for Woman Accused of Lying About Her Rape by Police

dont-rape-by-richard-potts

Target: Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring

Goal: Investigate police for wrongdoing in the case of Lara McLeod, who was allegedly raped by her sister’s fiancé who then murdered his own son.

Virginia police accused 19-year-old Lara McLeod of lying about being raped by her sister’s fiancé, Joaquin Rams, two weeks after her sister Hera gave birth to the couple’s baby. After Lara’s family alerted police, the officers reportedly decided that Lara was lying about being raped and arrested her. They also charged her sister Hera for allegedly aiding in the lie.

Lara is dealing with all of the horrific repercussions of being accused of lying about rape. But to make it all worse, the judge on the case granted Joaquin Rams unsupervised visits to his and Hera’s son, Prince. Three months after the unsupervised visits were granted, Prince was found unconscious in Joaquin’s house and died shortly after.

The custody battle over Prince revealed even more disturbing details about his father. Joaquin had lied about his age, his employment, and he was a suspect in his ex-girlfriend’s death as well as his mother’s. This extreme lack of oversight by both the police and the judge in these cases is disgusting and apprehensible.

Urge officials to take action against the police and judge in these cases in order to provide justice for Lara, Prince, Hera and their family.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Attorney General Herring,

Virginia police accused 19-year-old Lara McLeod of lying about being raped by her sister’s fiancé, Joaquin Rams, who lied about his age, his employment and was a suspect in his ex-girlfriend’s and mother’s deaths. Additionally, Prince was found unconscious in Joaquin’s house and died shortly after.

So many parts of these cases don’t seem to make any sense, and yet the police and judge seemed to have acted completely in the wrong and helped a horrible man get away with many horrible things. I urge you to take action against the police and judge in these cases in order to provide justice for Lara, Prince, Hera and their family.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. OMG! Are the police & judge in this awful case blind, deaf or just plain dumb??? Joaquin Rams should be punished to the full extent of the law…..the death penalty. PLEASE give justice to Lara, Prince, Hera & their family for the horrible crimes committed against them by Joaquin Rams, the police & the judge on this case.
