I'd say release the father, screw the mother. I find it frustrating that women should think they should be entitled to custody when statistically speaking children are better off with their fathers anyways. If the shoe were on the other foot, she would have been forgiven and it would have all been over with, with nothing more than a shrug of the shoulders. Overlook him, get the poor kid's father out. There are some things not worth prosecuting.
They're saying you can't abduct your own child unless the courts had already established custody. The man just took his son from the mother without her knowledge and raised him. That's cruel what he did to her but do we know the whole story? Maybe he wanted to see his son and she refused so he took him.
Something is _really_ missing from this story. Dad raised the kid well. Clearly mom was a lousy mother, because she apparently made no real attempt to find him. They were using their real names! And the local police were unaware of the situation! Meaning, she pbly kept right on smoking meth, and never cared about the boy's "disappreance". Sounds like the kid was better off not finding out...
"Goes back to his mom, life turns to shit and college is not an option anymore."
Sometimes, things happen for a reason...be it good or bad. But being "abducted" by his father got him to attempting to enroll in collge at 16 years old. Pretty nice feat.
Sometimes if the mother is crazy bi5(h and says they will seperate.
Automatically the mother thinks knows she could just keep kid thats our reality.
If i ever I MEAN EVER have a kid.
Im getting a contract signed. Fathers get the screwy side of deal they have less rights to parenting thats our realities truth and fact.
So the whole time he was with his biological father, was well raised and applying for college... Sounds like his dad wanted to get his son away from his mother to have a good life. My question is...... why did this man wanted his son away from his mother? Something is probably not right with the mother or the dad was simply being a selfish parent.
Nes Vquez it is much harder for father to have rights to parenting then the kids mother.
A mother can just up and leave and she would not get in trouble. She as the mother knows that, sad truth for fathers.
I'm confused,how can your own father kidnap you? Wtf? Maybe the mother wasn't a good mother the man obviously loves his son look how well he raised him...so wtf why is this even a big deal? Its his father...I'm so confused right now.
There must be something wrong with the family, how would the mom not want to contact the father especially if they just divorced (I think) it just doesn't add up how he can be gone for 13 years but just living with his dad
Go look up the stats on kids raised by single mothers vs single fathers. This was a blessing for Julian. I really hope the judge was merciful. I'm almost certain even if he got sentenced a couple of years, the dad had no regrets. The dad should not have lost that custody battle. The system is bull crap.
