Kristen Lawson is the wife of a friend and fellow pastor in Escondido, California. After calling 911 for help, she was arrested, arraigned, and charged. The charges were lessened since the arrest, but they have never seemed to have much factual support at all, if any, and seem contrary to Kristen’s character. I don’t think I’ve met Kristen yet, but I believe the descriptions of her character that I’ve heard from her family and through their church, which supports her fully.
Kristen’s lawyer seems to have some confidence of a positive outcome, but the Lawsons need money at this point to continue the defense. You can find more information at Norman Teigen’s blog. Norman has posted several updates, and I trust will continue to do so.
