          A Meddling Father-in-Law Who Allegedly Trapped His Son On His Compound

          October 22, 2018

          PLAYING A Meddling Father-in-Law Who Allegedly Trapped His Son On His Compound
          Thirty-four-year-old Jorell claims he wants a relationship with his father, Peter, but he and his wife, Tricia, say they fear his father will never stop trying to convince them to return to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

          They claim Peter is a manipulative person who took Jorell against his will and forced him to stay for several days at the “compound” they say he is building on 34 acres of land in preparation for the end of the world and the second coming of Jesus Christ. Jorell claims Peter accused him of being in a “cannabis-induced psychosis” and brought him to his “compound” so Peter could involuntarily commit Jorell into a psychiatric ward. Peter says despite whatever Jorell says, he has been deeply concerned that his son is smoking too much marijuana and showing signs of being in a state of psychosis. Peter claims everything he did was to help Jorell and to look after his best interest. Peter says he just wants Jorell to start regarding him as a father and not a criminal.
