Does the word ‘Homecoming’ invoke thoughts of football, bonfires, parades, your high school naming it’s ‘court’? Those were great times for most of us.
Or does homecoming mean something different to you? Did you have a loved one serve in a war? Away in the military service or even just off to college, where you didn’t get to see them often?
The homecoming I am referring to in this article deals with a less happy, but still monumental event in the lives of those faced in the police proactive sex scams. Homecoming here means finally released from prison or jail.
In our last posting I attempted to assemble people to appear in defense of Mr. Arbogast, a 73 year old was veteran wrongfully accused of looking to have sex with a minor. Thank you all to those who replied. I’m pleased to announce that Mr. Arbogast is now home with his loving family and friends. The only way we could be happier for the Arbogasts is if the police never wasted their efforts perpetuating their scam. In lieu of that unfortunate injustice – let’s all give quiet thanks to have him back!
Additionally, I’ve just received word that another unfortunate soul, Aaron Kinley, Jace close friend and one time cellmate, has been cleared by the ISRB for release. We don’t have an actual date yet but are so very happy to be planning his homecoming!
As Jace gears up for a potential retrial, I’d like to take this time to think about the strides we are making, the work we are doing, supporters we are gathering – all in efforts to see every last one of our loved ones and persons convicted in this Collars for Dollars scheme – home safe and sound where they belong. Where we can continue to help them reacclimate and start to heal. We love and support you all.
