More Info

Marci was a dedicated mom, law student pursuing a joint law and social work degree, and community volunteer for many organizations serving children and the elderly.She is an honorably discharged army veteran who had security clearance to handle nuclear weapons .

Marci was under a lot of stress and was prescribed psychiatric medication to deal with it, a common practice in American medicine.  She experienced a psychiatric medication-induced adverse reaction, psychotic akathisia, that caused her to commit a serious crime in 2010. She was found not guilty by reason of insanity and committed to a psychiatric facility until such time as she is no longer mentally ill and dangerous. She has not taken psychiatric drugs for over five years. Four independent mental health professionals have evaluated her and concluded that she is not mentally ill or dangerous. 

The facility where she is being held, Elgin Meantl Health Center in Illinois, is lying about her mental state in order to keep her locked up so she cannot speak out about the dangers of psychiatric drugs. She is subjected on a daily basis to cruel, inhumane, abusive treatment.

If released Marci is committed to telling her story to warn the public about the potential for serious adverse reactions from psychiatric drugs. She is preparing for a discharge hearing May 7-9 and needs funds to pay for the testimony of expert witnesses and other legal expenses. She also needs funds, if she does get released, to get back on her feet, as she has lost everything as a result of this situation.

Please donate to help Marci obtain her release and get the truth out. 

If you are a mental health professional who can provide expert testimony in this case, please contact Marci's attorney, Justn Schwartz, at (847)  687-5477.

Thank you.
