Rhode Island Attorney General Peter F. Kilmartin’s has minimized the crime of Parental Kidnapping and Family Abduction. It’s apparent that the lobby and special interest groups have put pressure on him not to charge Elaine Yates. In the decision not to charge her, it’s hopeful that the U.S. Attorney will step up and investigates Yates for crimes she must have committed while in hiding. Did she pay taxes? Is she guilty of identity theft? Did she commit forgery?
