Not Guilty - Justice Has Prevailed!!!

On August 11, 2011, Senator Quinton T. Ross, Jr., was acquitted on all 16 counts the Federal Government brought against him in the bingo trial. The evidence presented by 17 government witnesses only proved that the prosecution of Senator Ross was politically motivated from the start and that he was completely innocent of any wrongdoing. In fact, his defense team did not have to call a single witness to testify what we all knew to be true: that Senator Ross has never received payment in exchange for favorable votes or otherwise abused the responsibilities of his office.

The purpose of The Friends of Quinton T. Ross, Jr., Legal Defense Fund and Trust was from its inception to provide Senator Ross the means necessary to fight to clear his name. With God’s help, and with the prayers and donations of his supporters, he won the court battle. We thank you for your generosity and support.

But this is only the first step in Senator Ross’ fight to make himself and his family whole. Clearing his name in court was an expensive and emotionally taxing experience and he needs our continued help to defray the remaining cost of his legal defense. Please visit our “Donate Now” page to make a donation to The Friends of Quinton T. Ross, Jr., Legal Defense Fund and Trust. Senator Ross and his family extend their heartfelt gratitude to each of you for your support during this difficult time.
