Rob Walker’s family creates legal defense fund

Newsday

Rob Walker’s family members have begun raising money for the former Nassau County chief deputy county executive’s legal defense fund.

A recent letter signed by his siblings — Jen, Kristi and Brian — as well as his brother-in-law Keith Cromwell, deputy medical examiner for the county, announces the establishment of the “Friends of Rob Walker” nonprofit organization to defer Walker’s legal expenses.

“As you may know the cost in preparing for a perspective [sic] trial is extremely pricey and honestly something we just don’t have,” the letter says. “Rob has always worked hard to help others and unfortunately it is at this difficult time we are now asking for your help of him.”
