“Scott grew up as an incredible young man. He had a smile that could brighten up a room. He was very well known for his laugh,” says Scott’s mother, Shelley Campanella. Shelley has not seen Scott for over four years. In 2011, through a complex turn of events, Scott was accused and imprisoned in the Philippines for a crime that he didn’t commit. Four years later Scott is still in prison pending a decision by the court.

Yesterday, CrowdDefend co-founder, Hiraa Khan, sat down with Shelley, Eric Volz of the David House Agency, and Michael Semanchik of the California Innocence Project to learn more about Scott, the events that led to his arrest, and the status of his legal case.

While Scott’s family is hopeful that he’ll be exonerated, they still need your help to pay for costs associated with his ordeal. You can donate to Scott’s legal fund here.

This is CrowdDefend’s first ever Google Hangout On Air. Let us know what you think about this format! You can leave a comment on this post or email us at support@crowddefend.com.
