In one occasion, Helen brought forth the spirit of a man who served in the British Royal Navy, although no one in the audience knew the guy was dead already. Her mediumship skills however was feared by the government, as they became wary that she would pose a threat to national security.  Because of this, she was charged with conspiracy to commit fraud, for faking her mediumship activities, and she was even arrested by the police on a number of occasions.  She however, continued her mediumship services , and despite her attempts to prove her ability,  she was sentenced to 9 months imprisonment for violating the Witchcraft Act of 1735.
