  • Just so we’re clear here, the actual charges are worse than what’s been reported here or just about anywhere I’ve seen so far:

    From Pacer.gov:

    Pending Counts
    Disposition
    Title 18, United States Code, Sections 1591(a)(1), 1591(a)(2), 1591(b)(1), 1594(a), 2 and 3551 et. seq. – SEX TRAFFICKING OF CHILDREN OR BY FORCE, FRAUD OR COERCION
    (1)
    Title 18, United States Code, Sections 1594(c) and 3551 et seq. – CONSPIRACY TO COMMIT SEX TRAFFICKING OF CHILDREN BY FORCE, FRAUD, OR COERCION
    (2)
    Title 18, United States Code, Sections 1594(b) and 3551 et seq. – ATTEMPT TO ESTABLISH PEONAGE, SLAVERY, INVOLUNTARY SERVITUDE, HUMAN TRAFFICKING
    (3)

    ——>> “CHILDREN”

    I don’t know why this is being excluded from the reporting, or what the details are, but that is actually what the counts are against her.

    So we’re clear.

  • Mr. Parlato. Thank you so much for your work, your hard work that has led to making this day possible. I have no doubt that without you Keith and Alison would still be gathering slaves for Keith, and branching out further into pedophilia among other crimes. God Bless you for the many lives you have saved from harm.

  • Asset Seizure time is coming:

    – The United States hereby gives notice to the defendants that, upon their conviction of any of the offenses charged herein, the government will seek forfeiture in accordance with Title 18, United States Code, Section 1594(d), of (a) any property, real or personal, that was involved in, used, or intended to be used to commit or to facilitate the commission of such offenses, and any property traceable to such property; and (b) any property, real or personal, constituting or derived from, proceeds obtained directly or indirectly as a result of such offenses, or any property traceable to such property.

    Since Lauren Salzman gathered her slave squad at her house before branding them, her house is ripe for the picking if what I am interpreting is true.. Better get packing Lauren. The jig will be up for you soon

    2 and 3 Flintlock (Karen not only will you be arrested for your part in this criminal enterprise, but the home you co-own with Keith is going to be seized)

    The Library in the name of a defunct business/LLC and on the balance sheet of Clare and Sara’s assets – aka 8 Hale – likely to be seized.

    127 Grenadier and 7 General’s Way (Mack) all likely to be seized.

    A complete saging to clear all the Bad JUJU is most definitely warranted.

  • Wow! Federal Indictment. There it is!

    And there’s more coming…like the Immigration Fraud/Fake Marriage with Nicki Clyne.

    She’s done. Life as she knows it, is over.

      • If the documents are legal what makes it a “fake” marriage? Is there some rules about the reasons two people can get hitched?

        Either way it’s so far down the ladder of things the sentence would probably just be rolled in with whatever they’re already getting her for.

          • Weird that marrying for tax reasons or whatever is perfectly fine but not that. And how does one even prove it was for immigration purposes? Especially since I recall one statement on this site mentioning they lived together for at least a time.

            Sorry, off topic but just struck me as odd.

          • Right on One Woman! It is a Federal Offense to marry someone for US residency. If charged, the Defendants would have to provide proof it was a legitimate marriage – wedding photos, cohabitation, other proof.

            You cannot just marry a Non-US citizen, so they can get a Green card.
