The Rhode Island Superior Court issued a “body attachment” for a women who apparently ignored a lawful subpoena from the court. In a rather unusual tactic, a victim of a very serious crime was essentially arrested.
Why was a victim of a serious crime forcibly detained by authorities? The woman was seized to verify the authenticity of a letter of forgiveness to the criminal perpetrator. After a subphoena was apparently not complied with, the judge determined that a civil arrest was the best way to determine the letters authenticity.
