This morning, we heard from Bryan Seymour, an Australian television journalist who wanted us to know that a second felony count has been added in the criminal case against Jan Eastgate.
Janice Wendy Eastgate Meyer lives in Los Angeles and is the worldwide leader of one of Scientology's more annoying front groups, the Citizens Commission on Human Rights, which exists solely to advocate for the destruction of psychiatry.
Eastgate is Australian, and in that country last year, she was charged with Perverting the Course of Justice. It's alleged that in 1985, she coached an 11-year-old child, Carmen Rainer, to tell police that she wasn't being sexually assaulted by her stepfather, a Scientologist.
Today, Seymour tells us, a second count against Eastgate was added in the case...
Jan Eastgate allegedly coached Carmen and her mother not to reveal the situation to police or Child Services, possibly to save the Church from bad PR.
Today, Jan Eastgate was charged for the second time with Perverting the Course of Justice - it is now alleged Jan also coerced Carmen's mother Phoebe to mislead or not inform police investigating her daughter's alleged sexual assault.
