Mara Leveritt reports on her website today about the travails of Jessie Misskelley, the West Memphis Three defendant. He and his fiance had found a home with a friend, but that friend, who had custody of a child, was ordered by a judge to give up custody of his child unless Misskelley moved out. The father chose his child.

Leveritt reports that help was forthcoming:

When word of the problem was relayed to filmmakers Peter and Fran Jackson in New Zealand, the couple offered to pay Jessie's rent for a year. With that, they recently located a house near a longtime friend of the family. They have gotten the utilities turned on with the help of donations supporters sent to WM3.org. and will be moving in this week. Jessie and Susie have asked me to extend their thanks to the Jacksons and to everyone else who has helped during this difficult time.
