Hi again,This has been weighing heavily on me. The only thing I have been charged with is the Harbouring A Runaway. I have two questions in a moment. I am not a criminal
and I would not have even entertained helping him if I thought I would be arrested. I do not believe I was negligent. I knew he was approximately two months short of 17 but I told him he had to go back and he even said he planned to go to work as scheduled that evening and go home after and figure out what he would do. This is not a trial
case, just a hearing with the judge. First, I was arrested and never read my rights. Second, the officers searched my house at least twice with no warrant. The young man was never found in my house. One of the officers, long after this all blew up, randomly walked off and said he was sitting in the backyard. They went back in because his dad said something about a black duffle bag he thought was missing (he never had a black duffle with him). They came out with a military jacket that had his last name on it and that is why I was arrested, after hours of cooperating. Do I have any ammunition to defend myself and have this just thrown out? His family tried every which way to prove I was a pedophile but came up empty because I'm not. They went so far as to report me to CPS for sexually abusing my daughter, people who have never met either of us in person, all assumptions. That has since been investigated and "ruled out". I will obtain the report and most likely have it destroyed within the system which is an option I have. I have accepted responsibility for what I did and I always will but I do not want myself or my family to continue to suffer.
