Vladek Filler was terrorized by a powerful criminal justice system in Maine for eight years. Now it seems as though he is the last man standing.
Vladek Filler speaks to AVfM’s Acting Correspondent Scott Soley after the hearing in which Assistant District Attorney Kellett received a slap on the wrist. Filler describes the personal destruction out of control Kellett has had on his life and his children’s lives. All starting from a false accusation by his wife. However all may not be lost yet as Judge Gorman delays imposition till the end of this week. Kellett says she regrets what she did.
Mary Kellett is suspended then gets her suspension suspended. Justice Gorman has essentially cleared Kellett of all charges and Kellett’s only punishment was to say (paraphrased) “I’m sorry, I won’t do it again. Promise.” Before the decision was handed down Filler gave a moving statement about how Kellett’s criminal actions have permanently damaged his and his children’s lives. After the judgement Kellett was unavailable for comment.

Dean Esmay asks some questions we hope she’ll read and contemplate. [Illustration by Typhonblue]
