There's been some speculation here on a.r.s. about why the Florida DA
chose to go with such relatively minor charges (some suggested that they
thought they had reached a plea bargain with Scn, which Scn then changed
its mind about).

However, the civil suit does definitely allege false imprisonment, which I
think is the applicable charge here.

The charges have been made, just not by the DA.

Thanks again ... I truly hope you and your friend will be reunited
someday. Soon.

I think $cientology is hurting people and breaking the law, and I
want them to stop it. See for more.
