16 Reasons People Are Talking About Netflix’s True Crime Doc ‘Abducted In Plain Sight’
Jan and Mary Ann went on to write a book about the events.
It was on a nationwide speaking tour for the book that they encountered Robert Berchtold again, for the first time in years. Apparently, as Jan got older, he began to lose interest in her and their communication ceased. But during several speaking engagements, Berchtold showed up to contest their version of events. Jan filed for a restraining order against him, and instead of the customary three months, was granted a lifetime order of protection against him. He showed up at another event and got into a physical altercation with some biker dudes, and was arrested and charged with possession of a firearm and aggravated assault.
