When William Jake Fisher was 13 years old, he was raped for the first time by his mentor, soccer coach, and a trusted secret service agent.  He was groomed and trained and violated until he didnt even recognize his own humanity and value.  In a desperate attempt to obliterate his reality he robbed a pharmacy.  He was found before he could finish overdosing.  We respectfully request that prosecutors in Harrisonburg, Virginia consider all of the circumstances that brought him to commit this awful crime.  Jake has admitted and cooperated with the prosecutor.  He needs access to mental health resources.  Life in Prison is NOT what he deserves.  Lets rally support for Jake.
