    My dearest Close,
    Yes, that is the same one. I have 2 copies of the Burlington Free Press and that is what I was going to post.
    I am working on a current photo.

    So much Love and Respect,

    DS, any help you can provide in getting us the mysteriously witheld mugshot would be fantastic! From your experience with the prison system, any thoughts on why is it hasn't been released?

    Could it be the difference in the Feds and local police? Same reason why no cameras in Federal Court, different procedures.

    Yes. This is totally not needed IMO. I don't see how posting minor's names, info, myspaces will help move this case along.

    >in the comments, someone knows (from a source they refuse to quote) that >Denise walked in on MJ and AR in the act and walked out and never said >anything.

    Well, so far, I'd count that as potentially interesting, but hearsay at thisa point. I'd personally wait for further evidence here. Anyone can say anything they want to on the Net. As this was a random commentor on a site, I don't see reason to put belief in it just yet.

    why do we have a pic of MJ in court, but not one of RG in court?...the feds vs local also? (confused)

    Anyone unrelated to this case who used the seized computers for nefarious purposes is going to be in alot of trouble. (audio was horrible for me)

    Library seized in step-father's arrest.

    Someone just posted what we knew a long time ago..the name of MJ's sister, who is definitely not a minor anymore.
    I think someone took issue with that, because MJ's sister is a victim of sexual abuse....allegedly.
    That is what started the entire "don't post the name of a minor" talk.
    Other than MJ's sister being named, I don't think anybody posted the name of a minor in the last thread.

    May I ask a question though, Savanna's name has been mentioned a million times and nobody seems to care, including the mods and admin.
    I guess I'm not clear on when it's fine to mention a minor's name and when it's not.
    Thanks.

    I wanted to reply to this from the last thread, posted by VTNance:

    "It's also true that when an entire family closes ranks and covers up/enables this kind of thing, it is often hard for outsiders to do anything to change the situation, even if they know/suspect that something is wrong. MJ's past was known, but he was legally free; DJ married him of her own free will and ignore the obvious signs of abuse; AR was well-trained to keep her secrets; Brooke was allowed to spend time at the home of an RSO. Even if outsiders are troubled by the situation, they may not be able to effectively intervene in a situation as dysfunctional as this one."

    Perhaps- but if someone heard that Denise walked in on them in the act, they should have reported it. Even if it went nowhere that doesn't mean that it's ok not to even try. That's the exact mentality that allows these kinds of things to go on for generations. Nobody wants this kind of thing to blow up in their perfect little town.

    (This is purely my opinion and in no way do I mean to say that you are not entitled to yours)

    As a child who is the third generation of a very dysfunctional family (these kinds of things happened to my grandmother, who then allowed them to happen to my mother -to a lesser extent- and her older sisters, and sadly it has happened to some of my older cousins) I have to say "we couldn't have helped anyway" just doesn't cut it. It finally stopped with my cousin when she told a friend that she thought she was pregnant. The friend told her mom and the mom called the police. My aunt's ex-husband spent a very long time in jail.

    The only helpless ones are the victims.

    ETA: This was not in Vermont
