Affidavit of Sam Brower
On May 13, while attending the Motion to Suppress hearing in San Angelo, Sam Brower, private investigator, was served with a notice to take his deposition by Barbara Jessop’s attorney — in connection with Merrianne’s CPS suit. By all appearances, this was the FLDS’ way of retaliating for Merril having been served with the child support petition. I have been told that Barbara’s attorney is requesting that the deposition take place in an attorney’s office in San Angelo even though Sam Brower lives in Utah.
In response, Brower filed a motion to stop the deposition, and wrote an Affidavit that was attached to the motion (see below). It seems the deposition notice is not the only trouble the FLDS served on Sam while he was in town. This is alarming.
