As Sarah reported, Lee Perlman will not be prosecuted by the district attorney's office, and so has respectfully declined your donations to help with his bail/legal bills. Generous Mercury readers raised $396 (which would have been matched dollar for dollar by the Mercury), and that money is being returned to the donors as we speak. However! While our monetary help may have been unnecessary, I'm still thinking of making this T-shirt to sell at flea markets.
