A Florida woman has become the unlikely protector of Joran Van Der Sloot.

He's the man accused in the disappearance of Natalee Holloway. He's set to stand trial for the murder of Peruvian woman.

Mary Hamer says she believes Van Der Sloot is innocent.

Van Der Sloot confessed to the murder of Stephany Flores, but Hamer says he's simply the victim of a conspiracy.

"My heart and soul says that Mr. Van Der Sloot is a victim of a major international conspiracy by not only governments , the U.S. and Peru and Chile governments, but also of wealthy powerful, military connected U.S. citizens."

Van Der Sloot will go on trial for the murder of Flores this Friday.

Hamer is helping to pay his legal fees. She's already paid more than $20,000 for his defense and says she plans to be in Peru for his trial.

    This is without a doubt the most unimformed (trying to keep it clean) person on planet earth. He admitted that he was guilty of murdering a girl in Peru lady!!!! Truly amazing.

    Mary, I agree with you. It is a conspiracy. Somehow we have to prove it. I think I can, but I'm short on cash right now. If only there was a way that I could get a hold of a few dollars I might be able to help. Please, if you can think of anything, get in touch with me as soon as you can. This is important!

      Ahhh, Van Der Sloots a man, and the lady thats paying for his defense is actually buying him. If he don't kill her she'll have herself a man.

    This lady is a space cadet .... You can tell by her interview. She needs psychological intervention. She obviously believes in alien abductions as well.

    Oh yeah, and if he is guilty and he is able to get his freedom, you may be his next victim.If he was not guilty he wouldn't be saying he sold Natalee. He'd be yelling out that he had nothing to do with her disappearence.
