Dad under investigation for child sexual abuse abducts 5-year-old son from custodial mom (Tahlequah, Oklahoma)

Notice the subjective headline. Anything Mom says is just what she said. The newspaper can't even be bothered to confirm the veracity of her story. Is the boy gone or what?

Notice that even though Daddy is under investigation for child sexual abuse, he still has his court-ordered custodial "rights."

Mom was "advised" by legal counsel not to let Daddy visit the child, but how can she legally block him? She can't (legally) when the courts are so beholden to the (abuser) fathers rights crowd, who demand that daddies have access No Matter What. This just puts Mom in the position of violating a family court order, which will very likely get her arrested and/or cause her to lose custody. Frankly, I suspect she's being set up.

This is typical of the (deliberately) sloppy way the courts handle these things. Everything caters to Daddy, and nobody else has any rights at all.


Woman says ex took son

TAHLEQUAH — Authorities with the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Department are investigating an allegation of child abduction filed by a 28-year-old woman living on North 430 Road.

The woman reported to Sgt. Tommy Moore that her 5-year-old son was taken from her residence by her ex-husband and father of the child.

The boy was in the care of his uncle, who met the suspect in the front yard and gave permission to see the child. The uncle reported he was not informed by the mother that the boy was not to see his father.

The father said the mother had no right to keep him from his son, and left with the boy.

Moore reported that the woman produced court papers outlining weekend custodial arrangements between the parents and naming the mother as the primary custodian, but that the document was not specific about custody on weekdays.

The mother alleged that the father is under investigation by the Department of Human Services in Pawnee County for sexual abuse of the child while in the father’s custody. She said she was advised by legal counsel not to let the child visit the father until the matter is resolved.

The father is a white male, age 37, and a resident of Cleveland, Okla.
