Jul 17, 2015 on Syndicated at 4:00 PM


Kari says her life changed forever when Lonnie, her husband of 15 years, was arrested in 2013 and accused of being a serial rapist. She says investigators found several items in Lonnie’s car, including a stun gun, handcuffs, syringes and prescription... (more) drug vials — some of which Kari says she also found around her home. Lonnie ultimately pleaded guilty to one count of forceful rape, along with three felony counts of kidnapping, and has been sentenced to 26 years in prison. How does Kari say Lonnie reacted when she confronted him? And, looking back, were there any red flags she might have missed? Plus, Kari says she blames herself for what happened and is struggling to remain strong for her four children. Dr. Phil calls on crisis expert Judy Smith for help. How can this family move forward?
