As you probably know by now, I was arrested at my home by State Police on Wednesday morning after putting my children on the school bus. I was booked, transported to Stoughton District Court, and charged with 8 felony counts of intimidation of a witness, 4 misdemeanor counts of picketing a witness, and one charge of conspiracy. I was shackled, held in a cell, and arraigned in front of a hostile audience that had been tipped off by their friends and co-conspirators at the District Attorney’s Office. I was eventually released on personal recognizance and given a stay away order against 8 “victims,” who I’ve been exposing, asking questions to, and peacefully protesting against. The last 48 hours have been difficult, as the same corrupt cops I’ve been exposing executed a search warrant on my house and stole my phones and computer. I bought a new phone and computer today and was finally able to publish this story tonight.
These are serious charges and I need a quality criminal defense attorney, preferably with some experience with witness intimidation and First Amendment issues. I intend on hiring the best of the best, as I do not back down from a fight. If you would like to donate to our legal defense fund you can do so by clicking here. I appreciate any and all donations, and cannot begin to describe how overwhelmed with emotions I am to see the outpouring of support I have received. This is a battle of good vs. evil. They want to silence my voice because my reporting has been too effective. Until I retain counsel and obtain legal advice I will not be doing any blogs or streams, as I am of no use to anyone if I’m incarcerated for 90 days. Thank you for understanding, because I will never stop exposing the truth, and I will never stop fighting for justice for John O’Keefe and Karen Read.
