Atheist Says Arrests Are Baseless

Wachs, who lives in a gated community just outside Lakeland city limits, was arrested March 3 in what she termed a surprise raid on her home. She was charged by State Attorney Jerry Hill’s office with practicing law without a license, a charge Wachs emphatically denies.
