After federal and local authorities raided Ilana Lipsenís Alpine, Texas, store in search of illegal drug evidence, there was a dispute over what happened that day. Lipsen told reporters that Drug Enforcement Administration agents at the scene violently threw and kicked her sister Arielle, who was charged with assaulting federal agents. Prosecutors countered they never beat her.
But before the case could be adjudicated at trial, a federal judge included an extraordinary requirement as a condition of Ilanaís release from jail pending trial: She had to revoke her statements to the media and apologize.
