Kokesh: I have to go back to court in Washington, DC on January 17th and could be sentenced to up to 7.5 years. It would really mean a lot to me to have you standing behind me on this most important day. I'll be outside the courthouse at 8am and would love to meet everyone who supported me while I was locked up. If you have it please wear AVTM gear, if not, anything black and yellow!
