  • Very disturbing. However, I have to think there's more to the story because in most circumstances, custody would not be awarded to the father in another state when the mother is trying to keep the child with her. It makes me wonder what else is going on with the mom.

  • I agree Ballad, my heart breaks for this little girl...the mom said, that he drug-ed her (mom) with sleeping medication and raped her. I am terrified for this child!

    Where did it say that? I didn't see that in the link you gave.

    Regardless, it's really sad that this is what happened. I find it really disgusting that one of the lawyers said that there's nothing to stop a judge from giving custody like this once they've been convicted and done their time - he was convicted of molesting a CHILD. To me, that is the thing that stops a judge from giving a CHILD MOLESTER custody of a CHILD. That's kind of like putting the fox in charge of the hen house or letting the bank robber guard the bank vault.

  • I wonder why a woman would marry a sex offender and have a child with him? Sounds like he child would be better off in Foster care away from both parents.
