Judge Takes Kids from Primary Nurturing Mom Using Contrived Justifications; Grants Full Custody to Father [As Usual]
Twist: Mom Stuck in U.S.; Can’t Return Home to India with Kids

“I had no option but to trust the legal system in America. And, that was the biggest mistake I made…I’ve lost my dreams, my soul and inner peace and NOW MY CHILDREN…I feel as if my children and I are now hostages of this system.”
– Davneet

My name is Davneet Wadhwa and my petition is about America’s unequal justice system for this Indian citizen mother and her Indian citizen children.

My ex husband was very abusive from the beginning, but I kept working on the relationship in a hope that things will change some day.

…My divorce case was filed in Warren County Domestic Relations [Family] Court, Lebanon, Ohio. The Judge on my case is Magistrate Brenda Dunlap.

Right from the beginning, The Court has continued to make wrongful decisions on my case, not considering the evidence, my immigration status and the other important merits of the case.

…The living arrangements in my ex husband’s house are inappropriate because my 13 year old and 9 year old children have to sleep on the same mattress as does their father and his wife. He also has a male roommate in his house, who occupies one out of two bedrooms in the apartment. When I questioned these living arrangements, Magistrate Dunlap’s response was “kids can sleep in the bathroom, I do not care”.

Magistrate Dunlap recently made a decision about the custody of my children, on the basis of my immigration status, my financial status and poorer material conditions in India. She awarded the custody of my Indian Citizen children to their father because my U visa [victim of crime visa] has expired and due to that I asked The Court’s permission to relocate to India with my children.

Magistrate Dunlap recently made a decision about the custody of my children, on the basis of my immigration status, my financial status and poorer material conditions in India . She awarded the custody of my Indian Citizen children to their father because my U visa has expired and due to that I asked The Court’s permission to relocate to India with my children.

I feel as if my children and I are now hostages of this system. My choices are to be forced to immigrate or to go home without my children. I do not wish to live in the United States in these circumstances. This is not “Sophie’s choice”. This is our lives together or apart.

…As a mother I ask, is this country’s legal system well equipped to handle such cases? Per my experience, NO. And, if the system is not well equipped to handle this, please do not make such life changing decisions.

As a mother I am pleading to anybody who can help, PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION and raise awareness about our situation, so that my children do not get separated from me.

SIGN PETITION:
Help Restore Justice for Davneet and Her Children
https://www.change.org/p/help-restore-justice-for-davneet-and-her-children

SHAME on Ohio Magistrate Brenda Dunlap

SAFE KIDS NOTE:
Davneet blames America’s unequal justice system and thinks that Magistrate Brenda Dunlap took her kids away and gave them to the father because of her immigration and financial status, poorer material conditions in India, and her visa not being renewed. She thinks that the U.S. legal system is the problem.

But as most Safe Kids followers know by now, these were just contrived justifications used to achieve the systemic agenda to maintain male entitlement in the family. And using bogus justifications to switch custody to fathers is not a problem unique to America; it happens all over the world.

Please support Davneet by signing her petition and commenting here.

Dear Presiding Judge Finley,

I am with Safe Kids International and we are protesting the gender bias in Katie Hager’s case which led to her now 13 year-old daughter being taken away and given to her identified abuser father. We are outraged at this discriminatory treatment of women who simply try to keep or protect their children after divorce. It is happening in epidemic numbers all over the world in family courts.

We are asking that you replace Judge McMaster with a judge who will not continue to violate Katie’s rights. We want a judge who will provide due process and equal protection, what all judges are supposed to do.

Thank you

“Ally’s abusive father is now asking the Judge to punish me and sever ALL contact (against her will and wishes) with our 13-year-old daughter whom I carried for nine months inside me, gave birth to, brought into this world, nursed, nurtured, raised, took full primary care of all of her years, and absolutely cherish and love.”

SUMMARY
On December 16, 2013 –- one day before Ally’s 11th birthday — Bucks County, PA Justice Center Judge James M. McMaster took Ally completely away from her Loving and Protective Mother and beloved little brother and gave sole legal and sole physical custody to her father, after Ally bravely testified in court to the judge’s face of her father’s abuse.

Ally’s testimony of her father’s abuse was “sealed” by the judge. That day, the judge also took away Ally’s Protection From Abuse order against her father, which also allowed mother sole legal and sole physical custody of Ally. The judge also dismissed father’s criminal contempt charges to his violations of the protection from abuse order in which Ally’s father had testified and admitted his guilt to a different, female senior judge.

Despite much documented evidence – professional witnesses, photos, police and medical reports, including concussion specialists – and Ally’s own testimony to her father’s abuse, Judge James M. McMaster dismissed the final protection from abuse order and father’s criminal contempt of a PFA violation charges altogether, awarded Ally’s abuser and father sole legal custody. He completely reversed the order, ruling that mother instead was in “civil contempt” and ordered mother to spend the next six months in jail or purge it by first paying the draconian sum of $6000.00 in roughly a week’s time directly to Father, over the week of their daughter Ally’s birthday and Christmas 2013, making an appeal impossible, unaffordable, and unconstitutional.

Mother was quoted about $20,000 for an appeal. Judge ordered that Mother first pay the $6000 purge before attempting an appeal. Judge also ordered Mother to deal face-to-face and alone with abusive Father to pay him the $6000 fine directly with baby. When Father refused to meet Mother and her baby alone for payment, Judge McMaster sided with Father again and found Mother in contempt again, and issued a bench warrant and sheriff deputies who threatened to break into Mother’s home with “dogs” while Mother was holding her baby and had already paid the purge in full.

Allison’s Father has a long history of domestic violence, abuse, narcissism, control and anger issues–the reason for the separation in 2005 and finalized divorce in 2010. The custody battles started in 2005, and the abuse continued to escalate worse and worse.

In 2008, after a particularly violent incident of physical abuse against Mother in which Allison witnessed, where 911 was called, Allison’s Mother filed for her own Protection From Abuse Order against Father. Even that was only temporary, as Father had an expensive highly paid and manipulative attorney and Mother was unrepresented.

In November 2012, Judge McMaster had already ruled mother was in contempt for the same reason, took away complete custody of mother’s 16-year-old son and awarded sole custody to the same father and ordered mother to spend over 24 hours in jail and pay the fine of $1000 directly to Father for the same thing: simply reporting what their daughter told her, the abuse and neglect of her father. Mother is also a Registered Nurse, required by Pennsylvania Law to report abuse as soon as it is reported to her.

This judge would not accept mother’s documents, photos, evidence or witnesses, nor let her defend herself, screamed at mother in open court to “shut up”, and threatened her over and over in open court, made reference to her being mentally ill in some way, despite no basis or truth to the slander (in fact the complete opposite–3 therapists sided with Mother, 1 called Father a “bully”, 1 called Father “toxic” and only “good enough for weekends.”

Despite this, Judge McMaster has made clear his obvious male gender bias, and has continued to threaten to throw mother in jail for future court appearances for “a significant amount of time.” This judge also extorted expensive items from mother’s home and forced mother to meet Father and give them to him. Judge McMaster has also unreasonably refused to recuse himself and ordered himself to remain on this case with this family for all future rulings, despite his obvious gender/father bias, extreme misconduct and inability to fairly make a ruling.

Mother was also ordered to pay father child support and he collects child tax refunds, and Allison is covered under mother’s health insurance, despite the fact that mother stays at home full-time with her two other young children, and father smokes expensive cigarettes around Allison in violation of the Court Order, works full time for his sister’s Meineke Car Care Center in Doylestown, PA, lives with his brother’s family in Warrington, PA and Father has never paid mother child support when she had primary custody for years as ordered by the Court per the recommendations of the psychologists at CCES.

This is a horrible travesty of injustice and corruption in The New Justice Center of Bucks County, PA. A Bucks County Children and Youth Social Services social worker went into Ally’s elementary school – on her very first day of fifth grade – and interrogated and threatened her alone and without her Mother’s knowledge or permission, and lied about what Ally “said” happened to her, setting into motion the trial of Ally’s and her mother’s life… the hearing that ultimately meant she would be taken from her mother, Stepdad, little brother and the rest of her family and friends, little Chihuahua, school and activities, everyone and everything she has ever loved and held dear.

Bucks County Children and Youth Social Services, Bucks County Law Enforcement, and The New Bucks County Justice Center Judge James M. McMaster have all acted with gross misconduct and are actively refusing to protect or help Ally. Parts of the transcript from the court hearing the day Ally was taken from her mother were changed, a criminal act of forgery. Records of Ally’s testimony to the judge in his chambers of her father’s abuse have been sealed. A Woman’s Place advocates, who are always normally present at all PFA hearings for the woman’s support and protection, were not allowed into mother and Ally’s hearing on December 16, 2013.

Ally’s Mom, Stepdad, little brother & sister, beloved little Chihuahua, family and friends have all been fighting since 2012 for Ally’s safe return to her home, school, and community that she was ripped so heartlessly from, ever since Ally began reporting to her Mom, Stepdad and many others of her father’s abuse–which was then reported to and documented with CPS, the authorities, medical professionals, and ultimately the Court. Ally’s Mom is also a Registered Nurse and a Mandated Reporter by Pennsylvania Law.

On June 27, 2016, Allison’s father filed yet another (in a long line of) false contempt petitions, in an attempt to have Allison’s Mom–in his own words–“punished” and to unconstitutionally and abusively sever ALL CONTACT between Ally’s Mother and 13-year-old daughter Ally.

Ally’s Mother is now being forced back into “Family” Court by Allison’s vindictive father once again, this time on October 17, 2016. Ally’s father wants Ally’s Mother punished and to cut off ALL contact with their 13-year-old daughter. What kind of Father would do this to the Mother of his child? What kind of Father would do this to his child who loves her Mother?

According to the UN, “[d]iscrimination against mothers resulting in the loss of child custody to abusive fathers” is happening in the US, where far too often, family courts make grievous errors in judgment when deciding custody outcomes for children of battered women.

In this case, as in many others, Allison was wrongfully and irresponsibly given sole custody to her documented and identified abuser, Allison’s Mother was put on paid supervised visitation!…(paid by Mother at $60 an hour, minimum of 2 hour visits, doubled on holidays, even though the supervisor, a PhD expert psychologist hired by the Court, testified that Mother DOES NOT need and SHOULD NOT be on supervision, the Judge ordered Mother must continue supervision without giving any reason why!)

…All evidence of abuse was suppressed, expert witnesses were disallowed, and Allison’s own testimony of her father’s abuse to the judge was “sealed.” Both lawyers–the only witnesses–were ordered and forbidden by the judge to speak or write of the testimony or face being disbarred.

Ally’s Mother is one of an estimated 2 million mothers in the U.S. alone who have lost custody of their children to controlling and abusive men who seek to punish women simply for leaving them–in the cruelest way possible–by completing severing a mother’s contact with her beloved children.

Ally’s Mom has never given up hope that someday Justice will prevail.

Women “Caught Between Devil & Deep Blue Sea”
Whichever Path Chosen Leads to Father Getting Custody
Mother’s Fate “Set in Concrete” from Beginning

“The mother is caught between ‘the devil and the deep blue sea’. Knowing if the father obtains equal parenting or similar orders, the child will still be abused, and not realising by fighting the agreed parenting order she may lose her child completely until he/she is 18 years old. Many mothers do not wish to be party to such a proposal and stand their ground and wish to fight on.

It is from this time onwards the mother and her child’s fate has been set in concrete…[T]he father with a grin on his face can say ‘Heads I win – tails you lose!’”
– Maurice Kriss, Attorney, President National Child Protection Alliance

One of the most mind bending decisions for a family lawyer is how to advise a mother whose child has suffered child abuse by a father or partner. …There are many ways that the perpetrator can abuse children. The paedophile father will tell his child that he loves her dearly and what he teaches her is “a secret between her/him and daddy” and “do not tell mummy” sometimes the child is rewarded. As time goes by the conduct of the father and his child goes beyond the ‘touching’ and into digital abuse and later penile abuse. Later in life the child is told by the father “do not tell mummy what we do or you will lose your father and mummy will go to Jail” In fear of losing both mummy and daddy the secret is kept until the physical pain can no longer be tolerated.

… The mother may report it to the police or JIRT, or see a solicitor [attorney] to make an application to the Family Court to seek orders for the protection of the child. It is when the mother visits a solicitor to assist her to protect her child that she first is informed of the reality of reporting sexual assault in the Family Court. Most experienced Family Lawyers will advise their client NOT to report sexual assault in their application. Nearly all the mothers I have met were so warned, but went ahead anyway. They would tell me that “when the court hears my case they will believe me”.

The Solicitor in some cases would refuse to take on the case because he knows in advance the outcome and doesn’t want the stress of fighting a losing battle. Or, losing a case that would damage his reputation. Because of equal parenting laws and attitude of judges towards equal parenting it is a task that few solicitors would wish to challenge.

Often mothers would tell me that her solicitor/barrister and the solicitor/barrister for the father would get into a huddle and discuss a deal to end the case as soon as possible. The advice usually given after the conference is “allow 50-50% shared parenting or the father will go for full custody”. I have been told that in some cases that her solicitor will advise the mother “agree now before he changes his mind’.

The mother is caught between ‘the devil and the deep blue sea’. Knowing if the father obtains equal parenting or similar orders, the child will still be abused, and not realising by fighting the agreed parenting order she may lose her child completely until he/she is 18 years old. Many mother do not wish to be party to such a proposal and stand their ground and wish to fight on. It is from this time onwards the mother and her child’s fate has been set in concrete.

Now begins a four act stage play which is repetitiously performed by the Court. The mother’s complaint on a form 4 together with a supporting affidavit is filed, and a copy of which is served on the father.

The father goes to a family law solicitor who advises the father to say that the mother is ‘delusional’ and has been for a long time suffering from mental illness, including in one case of post-natal depression, even though the child was 4 years old. The father’s affidavit reports that the mother’s behaviour has affected her reasoning and she is delusional.

The judge orders legal aid to provide an Independent Childs lawyer (ICL) [GAL] who is far from being independent, and the ask ICL to obtain a psychological/family report from one of the approved psychologists/psychiatrists. There are only a hand full, and independent psychologist’s reports are not accepted by the court
The report is completed at exorbitant costs and is reported in a manner which supports the father’s contention that the mother is “delusional’ suffering from “borderline personality disorder”, “enmeshment”, “over protective”, “over anxious”, “post-natal depression” “bi-polar disorder” to name a few. The report is so predictable that it reminds me of the final scenes in the film “Casablanca” Where the police officer stated “round up the usual suspects.”

One cannot help wondering if these psychologists have a template that they can fill in the names of their next victim. Dr Rikard-Bell claims he has done 2000 of these reports in 25 years in which he claims 90% of the mothers are liars. Simple mathematics tells us that 1,800 mothers that he has reported on have lost their child/children until they are 18 years old or consent to shared parenting. Yet, neither the Judge nor the psychologists have the power to investigate any criminal activity. The only way of making such an outlandish claim is by making a report that the mother is mentally ill, and agreeing with his own false report and without any evidence to support it. No interviews are recorded so a false report can be made with impunity.

In some cases, mothers are forced to admit they were delusional if they wish to see their children again. This admission will automatically create ‘Orders’ that will prevent the mother from reporting any future offence or, take them to a hospital or doctor or psychological help for the child without the father’s permission. You require the abuser’s permission to report his conduct. These inhuman order are sometimes made even when there is no admission as to being delusional.

What if a well advised mother tries to find a sympathetic policeman to investigate what the abuser has done. Assume the police officer or JIRT team decide the child is at risk and seek a DVO for the protection of the child. The race begins to the Family Court. The father makes application for parenting orders in the Court. The Family Court will override the DVO leaving the child unprotected until such times as the Family Court has undertaken their investigation and deliberation. These cases can take many years and interim orders for contact will usually provide an abundance of time with the father. The JIRT or police report supporting the child are dismissed out of hand.

A family lawyer who knows from experience the dilemma the mother must face once she commences proceedings to protect her child and his own dilemma on what to advise her, knows that the father with a grin on his face can say “Heads I win – tails you lose!”

Thousands women this week marched through the streets of Poland in protest of their government initiating a law that makes abortion illegal. How many mothers here would march through the streets of our capital cities in protest of the inhuman conduct of the Family Court in failing to protect children and allowing their sexual and physical abuse?

Until a sufficient number of the 12,000,000 women in Australia are prepared to come together with one voice, nothing will change. Join the National Child Protection Alliance and let’s fight.

Excerpts from:
Mothers warned not to tell the truth in Family Court
http://familylaw.singlemum.com.au/child-abuse-family-court-07102016-maurice-kriss.html

WOMEN’S COALITION NOTE: This is an excellent article describing how women are being discredited, demeaned and falsely found to be lying and mentally ill in Family Court when trying to protect their children from an assaultive father. Although the majority of contested custody cases involve physically and sexually assaultive fathers, there are many women who simply want to maintain their primary nurturing role, as that is what is in the best interest of their children, who are treated the same way and also lose their children if they do not go along with 50/50. The problem is bigger than child protection; it is about women having the right and the power to maintain custody AND protect their children to increase their mental and emotional well-being and allow them to thrive.

This article gives further proof that this crisis is NOT driven by money and the desire for protracted litigation, because, if that were the case, lawyers would not be strongly advising women to agree to 50/50 and refusing to take their cases. This supports The Women’s Coalition’s contention that the agenda is to continue age-old paternal entitlement and empower fathers to remain in control of their family, whether they are overtly abusive or not.

The solution to the crisis is to create a new system which actually provides due process and equal protection. Safe Kids International and The Women’s Coalition are working on that so stay tuned for the revolution which will be necessary to force its implementation.

Wants Investigation of Molester Fathers Being Granted Custody
Anonymous Donor Gives $500,000 Seed Money

“[Family Court] failed to support me, a mother, who in my attempts to protect my children, was treated as a ‘hysterical woman’…I was made to look like a ‘vindictive wife’ instead of what I was, a protective mother.”
– Abbey’s mom

LETTER from Abbey’s mom appealing for signatures on the Petition for a Royal Commission into the Family Law System:

“This is my daughter Abbey [pictured]. She was a kind and gentle soul who loved her family and friends. Three years ago, she took her own life. Not a day go goes by where she is not in our thoughts and prayers. My darling daughter had her whole life ahead of her.

She was just 17.

Her death could have been prevented, but her pain became too much to handle. Broken and manipulated, she was also let down by the Family Law System, a system which I believe failed to protect her from a sexual predator.

It also failed to support me, a mother, who in my attempts to protect my children, was treated as a ‘hysterical woman’ by the Family Court system, even though her father had been charged with child sexual offences against another child at the time. I was made to look like a ‘vindictive wife’ instead of what I was, a protective mother.

This Petition aims to give a voice to children, parents and others who have been through the Family Law System in Australia and feel they have not been heard, protected or supported by this system. This system failed my gorgeous little girl. She is gone and I will never get to hold her again. This torment is happening to other kids now and I know that if we expose the dysfunction and culture of the system we can save lives.

I am asking you to help me make sure no more children die or are raped and abused because the system has betrayed them.

There are critical flaws in a system that so lacks transparency and accountability: where parents can be ordered to pay tens of thousands of dollars for a court ordered report or face the loss of their child; where lawyers routinely advise that allegations of child sexual assault shouldn’t be raised for fear of aggravating the system and risking being seen as vindictive, thus leading to the loss of their child; where the parent with the deepest pockets and the smoothest appearance wins the day; where children’s own words are discounted; where they are cut off from every adult who can help them by being ordered not to visit a GP or counsellor and not to talk to anyone about what is happening to them; and where it appears that ensuring a child has a meaningful relationship with both parents comes at the cost of protecting children from harm and abuse.

By adding your name to this petition, we can bring about change. A Royal Commission into the Family Law System of Australia will examine the failings of this system and stop kids from taking their own lives. We must expose the dysfunction that betrays children and protective parents and causes untold pain and trauma to innocent children.

This will be Abbey’s legacy.”

Following are excerpts from an article in The Australian:
$500,000 donation seeds Bravehearts’ royal commission drive
http://www.theaustralian.com.au/national-affairs/500000-donation-seeds-bravehearts-royal-commission-drive/news-story/e612c9af5e8b5db9be424ce9a4a3b996

Child protection advocate Hetty Johnston will fight for a royal commission into Australia’s family law system with a campaign seed-funded by $500,000 from an anonymous donor whose family was emotionally ravaged by a ¬volatile family court process.

The Bravehearts founder vowed yesterday to use the money to help demolish and rebuild a system “where parents can be ordered to pay tens of thousands of dollars for a court-¬ordered report or face the loss of their child; where lawyers routinely advise that allegations of child sexual assault shouldn’t be raised … where the parent with the deepest pockets and the smoothest appearance wins the day; where children’s own words are discounted.

“We needed this royal commission yesterday. It’s deadly serious because kids are dying.”

The $500,000 donation came in the wake of Bravehearts’ 277-page Abbey’s Project report into what Ms Johnston calls “the most untransparent, unaccountable and dangerous institution for children in this country”.

The report, named for a young West Australian girl allegedly driven to suicide by the family law system, canvassed insights from 320 families and professionals with experience of the Family Court and examined 15 case studies where children were placed at direct risk of sexual harm, to highlight the need for reforms.

“We’re not just talking about the court but how it interacts with state authorities,” Ms Johnston said. “It’s such a closed system. Families aren’t allowed to speak to media, they aren’t even allowed to speak to us. It’s just absolutely tyrannical.”

… “The system failed Abbey until she couldn’t take it anymore, until she decided that to find the peace and safety she craved she would need to leave her adored mother and her loving siblings,” Ms Johnston said. “For too many years we have been hearing the torturous testimony of desperate parents and children caught in the family law system, a system that includes all manner of authority figures such as police, court reporters, lawyers, expert witnesses and child protection departments.”

SAFE KIDS NOTE: Although we support an Australian or UK Royal Commission [or American “oversight hearings”] into the Family Court system, this distracts from fighting for the change that is needed right now to stop the epidemic. Enough studies, research and victims of Family Court exist already to justify demanding a new system in which the male entitlement and resulting gender discrimination causing the crisis of children being taken away from women and given to fathers, overtly abusive or not, be implemented.

Little Lili is four and a half years old now. She grew up in Cerdagne, France, her mom a Veterinarian, her dad from South Africa. They separated and a French court ultimately decided that Lili has to live with her father in South Africa.

But the father has taken Lili to Ile de Reunion in the Indian Ocean to be with the grandparents and Helen is having a very hard time getting visitation.

Win for Celebrity Mom: Judge Finds She Did Not Abduct Child
Actually Credited Mom’s “Primary Carer” Role

“[Katy] Ashworth had always been the child’s primary carer…
The mother…did not abduct [the child].”
– Judge Alex Verdan

“I’m done. Have packed up and left…Thank goodness I found out all the lies before moving to Australia with you for good.”
– Katy to father of her child

A former BBC children’s television presenter has won a family court case brought by her ex-partner over their child.

Katy Ashworth, star of the CBeebies show I Can Cook, brought the child back to Britain with her after a trip to Australia this year. Her former partner, Ben Alcott, who lives in Australia, argued that the child was habitually resident there and that Ashworth should not have taken the child back to the UK.

… Ashworth’s website describes her as a “very well-known and much-loved face to thousands of children and their families across the UK and throughout the rest of the world” and says she is an “accomplished actress, entertainer and singer”.

… “The parties started their relationship in May or June of 2011. They never married,” he said. “The parties’ relationship was long distance given where they each lived. In addition, they separated and reconciled on a number of occasions.”

[Judge Alex] Verdan said Ashworth had always been the child’s primary carer, and that she had travelled to Australia with the child in April. “The father says this was a permanent move. The mother says it was a trial attempt to see if their relationship would work out long-term.”

Ashworth and the child stayed at Alcott’s home for three nights and returned to the UK shortly afterwards, the judge said. “The main reason the mother left Australia was that she discovered material on the father’s computer which indicated to her his infidelity.”

… Verdan said Ashworth had discovered evidence suggesting Alcott was having relationships with four other women. She found women’s clothing and, “more importantly”, messages on his Alcott’s computer from other women.

… Verdan ruled in Ashworth’s favour, saying her found her evidence “clear and consistent and supported by the documents. I found the father’s evidence to be inconsistent, unreliable and unconvincing.

“My conclusion is that any agreement by the mother to move to Australia was based on a fundamentally flawed premise. If the mother had known the true state of affairs I am satisfied that in all likelihood she would not have moved to Australia with [the child] even for a trial period.”

He concluded that the child had never acquired habitual residence in Australia.

He added: “The mother did not wrongfully remove [the child] from Australia … she did not abduct [the child].”

I think taking a mother’s children away from her is the worst form of harm that can be inflicted on a woman and it is happening in epidemic numbers all over the world as a result of government systems in place which maintain the power and control men have had over women and children since patriarchy began.

Breaking News! Protective Mom Dara Is Finally Free…Sort of….
Released from Prison Today; Exiled to Mexican Border Town

Dirty Dealings: Parole Conditions Switched Last Second
Dara Banned from Travis County Where Daughter Attends College

Dara Llorens was released from prison today after serving two years for custodial interference and aggravated kidnapping of her daughter Sabrina (now known as Fair). Like so many mothers who are unable to protect their children in Family Court, Dara fled to protect her 6 year-old daughter from reported and corroborated sexual abuse by the father. Dara was caught in Mexico when Sabrina was 17, jailed on $1 million bond, prosecuted in a trial rigged against her, and convicted.

Dara is on her way to the Texas Mexican border town of Edinburgh where she has been exiled without warning at the last minute. She is prohibited from being in Travis or Williamson County, or anywhere near her daughter. Apparently, the father was able to get a last second parole condition prohibiting her from being within a county’s length of Sabrina by claiming she is a victim of Dara’s. Also Dara must serve her parole time far away in a dangerous Mexican border town. If Dara violates parole conditions, she has been told she will go back to prison for four years with no possibility of parole.

Dara had refused a plea deal because a condition of the deal was that she could not see her daughter for many years. Dara chose to serve her time in prison because she did not want that restriction. She had been told that she would be able to serve her parole time in the Austin area where she would pursue her Masters Degree.

However, when a friend went to pick her up this morning from prison, the parole conditions had mysteriously changed. Dara had been brought and released from a different facility and told she was not allowed to be in Travis or Williamson County. She would have to serve her parole in a halfway house in Edinburgh, a Mexican border town, reportedly rife with drugs and murder. She was also issued a passport without having asked for one, which seems suspicious combined with forcing her to live on the Mexican border. Another concern is that the mainstream media has followed this case closely—from the “poor father’s” perspective of course—but they do not appear to be covering Dara’s release from prison. This may be because of the last minute torturous and possibly illegal tactics being implemented in making sure the father is empowered and mother disempowered.

So Dara’s friends are asking for all eyes on her during their 8 hour journey today to the Mexican border and until she is safely back home.

ABOUT Sabrina Fair:
It is speculated that the father, along with fathers’ rights activists he’s somehow affiliated with through his position at Texas University, have deceptively, unethically, immorally and possibly illegally, accomplished their goal of keeping Sabrina, who is now 19, away from her mother so that the Stockholming and brainwashing of her to accept her father did not molest her can continue and take hold.

Some protective mothers are calling what Sabrina is enduring “financial slavery” as Sabrina’s father is apparently paying for her college on the condition she not have a relationship with her mother. She is pre-med, so he has eight or ten years to continue to control her through finances and afterwards through guilt and obligation.

Protective mothers describe Sabrina’s isolation from Dara as a common and necessary component of Stockholming and brainwashing children. It is nearly impossible to brainwash a child who has access to someone who supports the truth. In Dara’s case, it appears the criminal justice system is now colluding with the father to keep Dara away from Sabrina, using unethical and possibly illegal measures to accomplish that.

If there are any attorneys who would like to help Dara fight the newly imposed dirty conditions, please contact The Women’s Coalition at womenscoalitionintl@gmail.com. She has no money but the Dr. Phil show is planning to do a segment on her case, so the attorney would get some national recognition.

In the meantime, we are watching live as Dara tries to make it safely to the Mexican border tonight as she is due there today or she will be violating her parole.

SAFE KIDS ACTIVISTS:
1. SHARE this post so tons of people will be aware of Dara’s illegal banishment to a Mexican border town.
