For those who have missed the previous discussions, on April 14th, Michael Barisone (MB) was found not guilty by reason of insanity for the attempted murder and related weapon charge regarding Lauren Kanarek (LK), and just plain not guilty for the similar charges regarding Lauren Kanarek’s boyfriend, Rob Goodwin (RG).
MB is supposed to go to a mental health facility to have his mental condition evaluated regarding whether or not he is a danger to himself and the community, but as of today, two weeks after the verdict, he is still in jail, presumably due to a lack of available space at the mental health facility.
There is no word yet on when he will be moved. He was supposed to return to court on May 17th for a hearing regarding his mental evaluation, but it is unknown how that date may be delayed due to the current situation.
If anyone would like to write to MB at the jail, I will include the address below along with the rules regarding acceptable mail there.
I will also put up the addresses for his two attorneys. Mr. Bilinkas is willing to accept cards through the mail on MB’s behalf, which MB may be able to receive at a different location once he leaves the jail.
