The wife of Army Staff Sgt. Robert Bales has established a legal defense fund for her husband. Kari Bales announced The Staff Sergeant Robert Bales Legal Defense Fund in a statement on Saturday: “In America, everyone is entitled to a fair trial. Over time, the truth will come out. That’s why we have due process under the laws of our country. Unfortunately, due process is very expensive.” Staff Sergeant Bales faces 17 charges of murder “with premeditation” for the alleged March 11 shooting massacre in Afghanistan.
