Amyx later admitted to fabricating all of the allegations.

“The whole thing was bizarre,” Pellini said. “We believe he was threatening himself. He admitted to doing it all himself.”

Pellini said that Schipper’s family attended each day of the trial.

“They had a lot of sorrow for their own family because Jonathan was gone, but they also felt a lot of sorrow for the defendant’s family because there were two families ripped apart because of this,” she said.

Pellini said the trial was very painful for the Schippers.

“It’s still really painful for them,” she said. “They just handled this with such grace, no bitterness, no hate. They just wanted to see justice.”

The Schipper family could not be reached for comment.
