Leo Church in his Class A's before trial
Leo Church in his Class A's before trial

While in the Bell County jail, war-resister Travis Bishop met another inmate who also was mistreated by the U.S. Army, Leo Church.

Leo received 8 months jail, primarily because he put the safety and welfare of his children over his obligation to the Army. Leo tried to get help from his unit, but they refused and in the end threw the book at him.

Leo should not be in jail, so he and his family asked if I could take on his case for post-trial clemency and appeals. Leo also wants to speak out about his experiences, so that the public can know what Army families are forced to go through these days.
