The web site FreeRyanWidmer.com is not wasting any time to start raising money to help with Ryan Widmer's third trial.

Today they kicked off a new campaign to help foot the bill for Widmer's third defense team.  The web site is selling blue t-shirts that say "Justice for Ryan."  The shirts go for a about twenty dollars each.

They are also continuing their efforts of asking people to donate directly through the site.  And they've already began promoting a bowling fundraiser set for October.

Web site creator Mike Mayleben says  they are doing everything they can to defray the costs for the Widmer family.

"Those T-shirts will be on sale, through the web site, they will be going directly to Ryan any money that is made goes directly towards Ryan, are we going to be able to pay for a third trial? No, Can we help? Any little bit helps," said Mike Mayleben, web site creator.

And the Glow Bowling fundraiser is set for Saturday, October 17 at Colerain Bowl.
