Final Exiters Plead Not Guilty - I'm Shocked, I Tell You

The four members of the Final Exit Network were indicted yesterday in Georgia. They all pled not guilty. Really? If they're so committed to what they do, why not just admit it?
4 say not guilty in assisted suicide case
CUMMING, Ga., April 1 (UPI) -- Four members of the assisted suicide group Final Exit pleaded not guilty in Georgia Thursday to charges they ran an illegal organization that helped people die.
Group co-founder Thomas "Ted" Goodwin of Kennesaw and Punta Gorda, Fla.; Claire Blehr of Atlanta; Dr. Lawrence Egbert of Baltimore; and Nicholas Alex Sheridan, also of Baltimore; are free on bond after being indicted last month on charges of assisting a suicide, tampering with evidence and violating Georgia's anti-racketeering law.
The indictment came a year after the suspects were arrested for allegedly assisting John Celmer, 58, die by breathing helium pumped into a plastic hood over his head. They also allegedly helped plan the suicide of an undercover state investigator who led them to believe he had pancreatic cancer. more
