The news of Sharon’s arrest came as a terrible shock to everyone. The media interest was huge and reporting was at times less than truthful. Responses from the public were often hurtful, overly judgmental, and difficult for everyone interested in finding out the facts or trying to understand how this could have happened. Family and friends knew there was more to the story than the media sometimes portrayed.
What actually happened in the lead up to her arrest is still being determined by the court in Buenos Aires.
Sharon’s initial trial took place in February 2012. The family released a media statement in March.
