I want to explain what is happening and I can't do that because I don't want to risk putting something out there that could be used in court at some point. It would take some doing to link this blog to me and then to the person who will be on trial but I don't want to risk it. I don't want to risk being called as a witness when I only know secondhand information and a lot of pain.To put it very simply my brother was arrested last week. I will not say why but I will say that it is a very serious charge that echoes things that other men in my family have done. I do not know specifically what he is charged with. I know he is pleading not guilty and he is innocent until proven guilty. There is just a risk and also intense anger that makes my sister and I unable to tolerate being with him.
