I received the following letter from a close friend of Todd's that has been helping him keep his affairs in order while he's behind bars. I'd like to share it here if anyone would like to help out or even just send Todd a note letting him know he has support. I'll post again on this subject when the address is updated, but as of now the San Bernadino one is still good.
Todd got a five year sentence, but it is more like a death sentence. All the newspapers portrait him as a child genital mutilator. He might never come out a live, even though he never agree to do any genital mutilations on children. His life has already been threatened several times since he's been in custody. Todd had no choice but to plea bargain to a lot of these charges. For the charge of conspiracy he was facing five years to life.
At this point Todd is a dead man walking. All the newspaper and news media should be so very proud of themselves, they just gave Todd a dead sentence for a crime he never committed. He is in absolute terror not knowing where his going. The prosecutor hates Todd so much that even when the judge gave Todd the five year sentence, he insisted that the judge should had given Todd a longer sentence. They also made sure the media was present for his sentencing.
Robyn will be out in about two months. She has requested not to have any contact with Todd. She also requested not to be transported with him to court, or be next to each him in the holding cells during the court proceedings. That's what I call loyalty!!!
We still owe [Todd's Lawyer] $52,000. By the grace of God I've been able to sell a lot of our furniture and parts, but there is very little left. I have sold everything for pennies on the dollar. If there are any supporters out there, please ask if they could help us out with any small donations sent directly to him. Todd spends about $80.00 a month for food and personal hygiene. I'm pretty sure that you're aware of what a great business is to put people behind bars.
They can only send a money order or cashiers checks, payable to “Todd Bertrang”.

You can send letters and cards to that address, as well as any financial support you can offer if you'd like, but nothing else can be sent there. Books and magazines can be sent, but they have to come straight from the source (ie. you can have Amazon send them there, but you can't mail a book there yourself). I'm sure Todd would really appreciate knowing he has support.
