The Freemon Family attorney was arrested for violating a gag order concerning the arrest and detention of former Vice President Freemon, his children, and his wife who had most assuredly not gone missing while in Federal custody. The Virginia Bar revoked her license to practice law. The attorneys named in her paperwork to represent her in case of her arrest all declined to represent her. The judge assigned her a public defender rather than allow her to represent herself. The public defender accepted a plea bargain in her name. When the former attorney tried to protest, the judged ruled her in contempt of court. When she continued to protest, she was deemed mentally unbalanced and sent to a mental health facility to see to her future health. It was a dangerous time to have any link with a family charged with sedition against the Federal government.
