Donate to the Jesse Snodgrass Legal Fund


We genuinely appreciate all donations to the Jesse Snodgrass Legal Fund which help to fund our son’s lawsuit against the Temecula Valley Unified School DistrictOur legal expenses are significant, many which are coming out of our pocket, unlike the TVUSD’s legal fees, which are being paid by our taxes. 




If you have any questions, please contact us.  Thanks

    is there any way to contribute that doesn’t involve banks taking their cut?

      If they can accept Bitcoin, I bet the entire legal would be funded in 48 hours. They need to set up a account. I would be the first to donate BTC.

    Happy to help in any way I can. This predatory act against a bunch of kids during a difficult time in their lives (and to boot special needs kids too!) is absolutely shameful.

    At what point does entrapment come into consideration? 22 kids “busted”, 9 of which were special needs students, by a “detective” who posed as a new student. He befriended them, then pestered them until they acted as intermediaries to a drug sale.

    I hope and believe that their parents should sue the city and school district for what I believe to be criminal misconduct by the Temecula police department. In no way should the department or school district be able to apply for greater federal grants for inflating arrest numbers by entraping kids at their own school. They’ve now affected the kids by expelling them, eliminating college options and financial aid in the future.

    A terrible injustice…

    I find they literally forced kids who don’t sell marijuana to get it for them, as well as using special needs kids to aggravate them into doing it for them so they can “bust” him.

    American legal system < my Gr.6 classroom rules.

    My advise would be to get the county Grand Jury involved. They are often remarkably effective at county level issues because they are comprised totally of citizens, and not corrupted by the politics. It is as simple as writing a letter to request an inquiry.

    Here is a link to the California Grand Jurors Association web site for more info:

    Watching the video about Jesse & seeing the suffering going on inside him made my heart twist in my chest. I saw my own son in that video, also having same spectrum of Autism, having yet another blow to their self confidence & self worth from someone that used them they thought was their friend. Sick. Just shame on that officer and or anyone who would trick & manipulate children with a disability . I wish I could hug his parents. I felt their pain & cried the whole time. May God bless them & help them.

    This is a shameful atrocity! Did this poor excuse for an officer need a bust SO BADLY that he took the easy way out and decided to set-up a poor autistic teen? Was the so-called officer too busy smoking reefer himself to find the REAL stoners in the HS? In California, no less? Or was this dude such a pathetic excuse for a person he couldn’t actually infiltrate ANY clique, and had to settle for the dude with few friends? Way to go, ahole. Now, you’ve not only embarrassed yourself, but you’ve shamed your entire precinct. I’ve heard cops can be worse bullies than the HS kids you couldn’t even successfully make friends with. Karma can be a real bitch.

    It’s ludicrous that Jesse even NEEDS a legal defense fund, as this precinct should be ashamed of itself, and everything should be dropped, along with a HUGE apology. WTF is wrong with this so-called cop?

    Wish I could help more. I WILL try to share this with as many folks as I can, many who have autistic children of their own. Perhaps through their networks, you will be able to raise enough $ to not only cover your own legal fees, but to set up a fund to help the next poor child who is bullied in this manner.

    I guess zero tolerance doesn’t APPLY to the local police!

    Just finished watching the video from Vice. And I just wanted to mention how disgusted I am with the way the police are conducting themselves.

    I wish you the best of luck in your pursuit for justice in this, and I really hope the crook who was the brainchild of this ridiculous scheme is named and shamed and eventually brought to justice.

    I just wanted to say that it is an atrocity about what these police are doing. there is no way these kids would have bought or sold drugs without the police officer telling them to get them drugs. Your story has inspired hundreds of people I hope that now you guys have the money that you need to stick it to the man.
