More Problems From Haiti

The good new: The 9th Haitian volunteer was released from prison and returned home to Idaho.

The bad news: All 10 might have to go back.

On Friday, Judge Saint-Vil brought additional charges of “organizing irregular travel” against the team after discovering an earlier attempt to take the children out of the country, according to CNN. On Jan. 26, the team attempted to take 40 children to the Dominican Republic, a Haitian officer, who requested not to be identified for fear of reprisals, had reported. The officer thwarted the group’s plan after he was alerted by a concerned citizen about the bus loaded with Haitian children.

If convicted, the team could spend three to six years in prison.

Laura Silsby, the team leader, remains in prison.
