BOSTON, MA – A father is being charged by the state of Massachusetts for speaking about the kidnapping of his daughter and the oppression his family has endured for the last year. After reaching emotional, physical, and financial exhaustion, Lou Pelletier decided that the only way to save his daughter was to speak out and make his daughter’s story as public as possible. Breaking a judge’s so-called “gag order” may cause him to be punished for exercising his right to free speech.

Mr. Pelletier said the way his family has been treated rivals something out of North Korea.
After facing continual disappointment with the justice system, high legal bills, his daughter’s desperate condition, and virtually no notice from the national media, Lou Pelletier …read more
