Haitian Charges Dropped

Amarillo, TX - An attorney for Amarillo native Jim Allen is applauding the dismissal of criminal charges against ten American missionary workers.

They were arrested after trying to take a busload of children out of Haiti after the January earthquake.

The group no longer faces kidnapping and criminal association charges.

However, the last of the ten jailed in Haiti, Laura Silsby, still faces a lesser charge for allegedly organizing the effort to transport the 33 children to an orphanage in the Dominican Republic.
