Justina Pelletier may be heading home soon – Video

I’m posting this today because I know Jim has discussed this topic on the big radio show in the past. I’m not too familiar with the case, but The Hartford Courant has an update story this morning, and I found a video of Justina supposedly shot last weekend, where she begs the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to let her go home.

From the Courant.

A lawyer for the family of a West Hartford girl at the center of a controversial custody dispute said he’s filing a motion Tuesday that could see the case resolved within days.

Mathew Staver, founder and chairman of Liberty Counsel, is representing the family of Justina Pelletier, who has been in the custody of the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families for the past 16 months. Since May she has been staying at a treatment center in Thompson. …

Justina’s father, Lou Pelletier, was cynical Monday of a possible agreement and said he still resents the way the case has been handled by Massachusetts officials.

Judge Joseph Johnston has several times dangled “the carrot on the string that gets pulled away,” Pelletier said, and “the day that he releases her is the day that I’ll believe it.”

From The Daily Mail (UK).

Mr Pelletier says he didn’t force his daughter to record the video, and that it was an idea she had and created with one of her sisters.
