Roberto Wakerell-Cruz Montreal QC
A fundraiser has been launched to support the legal defense of former Marine Daniel Penny, who may face criminal charges related to an incident that took place on May 1 involving Jordan Neely. 

Jordan Neely was a 30-year-old homeless man, a repeat offender with over 40 prior arrests and severe mental illness issues. Neely died on May 1 after Penny, 24, had placed him into a chokehold after Neely had reportedly started behaving erratically and showing aggression towards other passengers. Footage from the day showed Penny placing Neely in a "recovery position" in an attempt to make sure he was okay.

The campaign, launched on alternative fundraising site GiveSendGo has raised $2,200 as of the time of publishing.

The fundraiser states that "Funds are being raised to pay Mr. Penny’s legal fees incurred from any criminal charges filed and any future civil lawsuits that may arise, as well as expenses related to his defense. 

"All contributions are greatly appreciated. Any proceeds, collected which exceed those necessary to cover Mr. Penny’s legal defense will be donated to a mental health advocacy program in New York City."

All funds will be sent to and managed by the law offices of Raiser & Kenniff, P.C, per the GiveSendGo campaign's description.
