Autistic Teen Falsely Arrested and Detained - Today on You Aut to Know!

Lisa Alexander, a mother of an 18 year old with PDD-NOS will be my guest. Her son was arrested outside of his local library under the suspicion that he had a gun. If you check out her website - http://avoiceforneli.com/ and read her story or check out her video, you will see, that this was not the case. Neli goes to a private, special day school and it is very hard for him to communicate. They still have not released her son to her and he is currently in a mental hospital. This incident happened May 24 2010.

I want to help this family by creating awareness in the community, but I need your help. This family is in need of donations in order to hire a lawyer to get Neli released.

Please show your support and listen in this Sunday and please call in with questions comments or suggestions. Also forward -http://avoiceforneli.com/ to all you know to help get the word out about this injustice.
