HAITI DROPS ALMOST ALL CHARGES AGAINST MISSIONARIES

Remember the Baptist missionaries who were arrested and charged with kidnapping because they did not have the proper paperwork to take kids out of the earthquake ravaged country?

A Haitian judge dropped the kidnapping charges against all 10 U.S. missionaries. However, Laura Silsby, the only one who is still in jail, still has a charge accusing her of organizing the illegal transport of 33 children. This goes back to the paperwork issue. The maximum sentence for that charge is 3 years in jail. Silsby has now been in jail for several months.
