I post this because I need to help. My kids need help. I am writing this as an affidavit of sorts.
In 2005 I left my abuser- I left in the middle of the night after he attempted to force himself on me- beat me- choke me- My infant son- age one- began to cry. My ex jumped up and grabbed the baby by the arms- throwing him around- I jumped up- and tried to protect him- I was able to free the baby. The ex then just left the house. Within minutes I had myself and 3 kids (ages 1,3, and 5) out the door. No shoes- no coats- in pajamas- we ran. Within an hour my ex had his crooked and bough police station at my mother’s home to take me into custody. He claimed I assaulted him. The local police refused to look at my injuries. They refused to enter a TRO until Monday (This occurred on Sat night).
I hired some great lawyers- spent my money and my family’s money. Every lawyer sold me out. Every lawyer wanted to endure their own paychecks- and could care less. My kids began to report abuse. The lawyers told me I had to keep sending them. DYFS came into the case a couple times- and all times the sitting Judges told them to take a powder- “this is a custody issue”. My kids were told to shut up- they were told to stop reporting abuse or they would go to foster care.
Hired guns were brought in from across the country to use the junk science PAS (parental alienation syndrome). They all claimed that the abuse was not “that bad”- The expert even wrote in his report- “the father forces affection on the kids when they are not in the mood”- He went on to write – “The paternal grandfather smacked the 6 year old across the face because he deserved it”- “The father sneaks into the daughter’s room at night to paint her toes because he loves her”- All the while the kids begged someone to protect them. They were ordered into more and more overnights with the father as punishment for reporting.
In 2011 I went to the FBI with a CD I had found where my ex makes a cash payment during a custody hearing I was told not to attend. The FBI opened the investigation and to my knowledge- those investigations are still ongoing. As a result- the Judge at that point was removed after his family was interviewed by the federal agency. The case was then transferred. The Court that got the case was already in bed with the father (the county had been paying him cash for snow removal for years- oh and this family was already indicted on bribery in 1997)
The new Judge was tainted because of the FBI case- and I no longer had a lawyer. I was run penniless. The Court held all kinds of ex parte conversations with the multiple lawyers of the father. At the same time- my daughter wrote a letter to our first judge who now retired. She also confronted her father about the abuse in detail. At that point- the court had no choice but to call CPS. The CPS people sent us to a regional trauma center- where the two girls gave statements- psych exams- physical exams- and the abuse was absolutely founded. (Despite the court’s claim it is not). The center promised the kids they would no longer be subjected to unsupervised visits with the father. That same center wrote a report- which I am not permitted to see. After speaking to the agency this week- it is clear that someone is lying. It is either the folks at Wynona’s House- the folks at CPS- or the court. My bet is on the Court- but no agency has formally stepped up to help us. Lots of empty promises- lots of approvals for federal grants to the Wynona’s house to help our family.
In court this week- I got a temporary stay of a restraining order- but after the sitting court spoke to the appellate court- it was thrown out. I was then confronted last night again by North Caldwell police- to “turn my kids over”- The one night between the stay and when he got the kids back- he was abusive again to the kids. I am afraid to give him the kids because he has often told me he would kill them before I would every get them. He has told the kids if they testify against him- he will kill them.
I HAVE NO LAWYER! IF ANYONE CAN CONTACT THE AMERICAN MOTHERS POLITICAL PARTY- THEY CAN PUT YOU IN TOUCH WITH ME IF YOU CAN HELP ME- I HAVE ASKED MY GOOD FRIEND LULA TO PUBLISH THIS FOR ME- I AM AFRAID FOR OUR LIVES- PLEASE HELP US GET A LAWYER- AND PLEASE HELP ME PROTECT MY KIDS-

The appearance Child-abuse, neglect deaths in Illinois remain high in DCFS-involved cases and still going strong.

Enoch A. Hayslett brought his 1-month-old son to a hospital emergency room in December 2008, saying the baby was constipated.
Instead, doctors found the infant had a broken femur — an injury Hayslett and the child’s mother couldn’t explain. So the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services took protective custody of the baby and his two older siblings, and a Cook County judge ordered that all three children be placed in foster care.
Hayslett and their mother went on to have more children: a daughter, another son, then twin boys — all of whom lived with the couple in the south suburbs as they sought to regain custody of the three older children.
During that time, DCFS twice investigated complaints that Hayslett was abusing his children but found the allegations not credible, records show.
Then — a month after a child-protection investigator closed the second case — the 5-foot-10, 280-pound Hayslett was charged with beating one of his twin sons to death. The 20-pound boy’s skull was fractured, and he had multiple bruises.
Authorities said Hayslett also abused the other twin and their toddler brother, too.
They arrested the Lynwood man in December 2012 and charged him with first-degree murder, among other charges.
Last Father’s Day, Hayslett hanged himself at the Cook County Jail.
His 8-month-old son Lamar Hayslett was among 27 Illinois children to die from abuse or neglect in DCFS’ last reporting year after they or their families already had been involved with the agency, aChicago Sun-Times and WBEZ examination of newly released records from the DCFS inspector general’s office has found. Five more cases were under investigation, those records show.
On Wednesday, the head of child-death investigations for DCFS Inspector General Denise Kane said that one of those five pending cases has now been determined not to have involved abuse or neglect. A second case remains under investigation, but not for abuse or neglect.
Still, the number of DCFS-involved abuse or neglect deaths could reach 30 for the third year in a row.
In the 2010 reporting year, there were 15 abuse or neglect deaths in which DCFS had had some involvement with the family within a year of the death, according to a Sun-Times and WBEZ investigation published in November.

Federal funds to foster healthy marriage have little effect, study finds
$800-million initiative does not seem to have changed state marriage or divorce rates, raising question of whether it should continue.
|As marriage rates in the U.S. continue to dwindle, Washington, D.C., seems to be an exception: The city spent more per person on healthy marriages than any of the states and saw its marriage rate rise 35% between 2000 and 2010. (Andrew Harrer / Bloomberg / January 3, 2014)|
The federal government will have spent roughly $800 million on its Healthy Marriage Initiative by the end of the federal fiscal year, according to the federal Administration for Children and Families. The money, drawn from the welfare budget, has funded a range of programs to help couples have better relationships.
But the initiative does not seem to have changed state marriage or divorce rates. Between 2000 and 2010, marriage rates continued to dwindle as the federal money poured into local programs, according to new research from the National Center for Family and Marriage Research at Bowling Green State University.
Divorce fell in some states and rose in others, but the patterns were little different in states that spent a lot on the Healthy Marriage Initiative — such as Oklahoma, Arkansas and Wyoming — and states like Rhode Island, West Virginia and Nevada that spent little.
Washington, D.C., is an apparent exception: The district spent more per person on healthy marriages than any of the states and saw its marriage rate rise 35% between 2000 and 2010. But with little evidence of a broader tie between marriage rates and such spending, researchers chalked up that increase to its rapidly changing demographics.
All in all, “there’s no bump up or down in these figures,” National Center for Family and Marriage Research co-director Susan L. Brown said. “That does call into question: What are the measurable benefits?”
The study examined more than $600 million in federal funding spent between 2000 and 2010, including early demonstration projects.
A decade ago, then-Assistant Secretary for Children and Families Wade F. Horn told a Senate committee that teaching relationship skills could “increase the odds that couples will form and sustain healthy marriages.” Children raised in “healthy married households” were less likely to endure poverty or commit crimes, Horn said.
The new research adds to a long-standing debate over the effort and whether government can or should promote better marriages as a way to combat poverty. Some supporters argue that marriage rates are an inadequate measure because the goal is not to increase weddings but to improve existing relationships so that children are better off.
Gauging marriage and divorce “is really a narrow view of the benefits,” said Robyn Cenizal, project director of the federally funded National Resource Center for Healthy Marriage and Families. If someone goes to such classes and realizes their relationship is unhealthy, “choosing not to get married is actually a good thing,” Cenizal said.
Others questioned whether tracking changes at the state level was the best way to gauge programs that tend to be small and experimental. For example, the nonprofit Healthy Relationships California taught nearly 29,000 people last fiscal year using the federal funds — “a drop in the bucket in terms of the number of people in California,” its president, Patty Howell, said. Her group found that couples were more satisfied with their relationships, but Howell said such changes wouldn’t show up in California statistics.
Federal research zeroing in on particular programs has also shown lukewarm results, however: Although an Oklahoma program showed promise, other classes had scant effect on whether unmarried couples had better relationships or stayed together. Classes for married couples had “small positive effects” on their relationships, although couples were no more likely to remain married a year later, another federally sponsored study found.
“The positive effects have generally been small,” Brigham Young University professor Alan J. Hawkins said. But “we’re still on the very steep part of the learning curve.”
Hawkins and other researchers recently found such spending had small but positive effects on the percentage of married adults at the state level, but several other scholars have challenged those findings because the effects evaporate if Washington, D.C., is excluded. Many brand the experiment a failure.
With food stamps and other assistance going under the knife, “I’m not sure this is the time to continue diverting some of those precious dollars to programs that don’t seem to be working,” Binghamton University psychology professor Matthew D. Johnson said. “As scientists, we need to listen to the data.”
The appearance of cannon violations .How long do we let these people that are public servants commit unethical and statutory fraud get away with it and the people they screwed over just suffer?

Embattled Family Court judge seeks re-election
LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL
A criminal indictment, a suspension and a finding that he committed professional misconduct did not stop embattled Family Court Judge Steven Jones from filing for re-election Tuesday.
Jones threw his hat into a ring with four challengers, even though his popularity has declined sharply in recent months because of a string of scandals.
Four lawyers — Rebecca Burton, Lynn Hughes, Michelle Mercer and Marsha Kimble-Simms — all have filed to run for his Family Court seat.
Jones was first elected to the bench in 1992.
“The guy’s got a lot of nerve,” said longtime child advocate Donna Coleman. “There is something to be said that there is no bad publicity.”
Coleman said Jones would not be in a position to run for re-election if the state appointed judges rather than elected them.
“I don’t think he could possibly win unless he gets the lamest opponents on the planet,” Coleman said.
Coleman said she doesn’t think Jones was a bad judge. But she added, “I just think he is a bad example for anybody because of his personal decision making.”
William Dressel, president emeritus of the National Judicial College in Reno, said all of Jones’ personal troubles aren’t going to play well with the voters.
“I think the voters would be very concerned with somebody like that being up for re-election,” Dressel said. “He’s going to have a lot of trouble raising money.”
The judge’s lawyer, James J. Jimmerson, could not be reached for comment late Tuesday.
Last month, the Nevada Commission on Judicial Discipline found that special prosecutors proved “by clear and convincing evidence” eight of the 12 charges filed against Jones in December 2012 stemming from his romantic relationship with the late former Deputy District Attorney Lisa Willardson.
Jones, who is under a federal fraud indictment, discovered Willardson’s body in the bathroom of her Henderson home on Dec. 26, the same day the commission’s decision was first made public in a Las Vegas Review-Journal story. There were no signs of foul play, and the coroner is waiting for toxicology results before ruling on the cause of her death.
The commission’s special prosecutors had accused Jones of violating rules of the Nevada Code of Judicial Conduct that require judges to comply with the law, avoid the appearance of impropriety and conduct themselves in a manner that promotes public confidence in the integrity of the judiciary.
He faces a Jan. 27 public hearing before the commission on a wide range of possible sanctions including another suspension and removal from the bench.
Special prosecutors proved all three counts were tied directly to the judge’s relationship with Willardson, which began in 2011, the commission ruled.
Two of the counts alleged Jones improperly maintained a “close social and personal relationship” with Willardson between October and December 2011 while she “actively litigated cases” before him and then did not disqualify himself from her cases.
The other count accused Jones of interfering with the efforts of then District Attorney David Roger to remove Willardson from a child welfare unit that prosecuted cases in the judge’s courtroom.
The commission also found that prosecutors presented strong evidence to sustain three counts accusing Jones of using his judicial office to help Willardson prepare a response to a State Bar of Nevada complaint against her stemming from their romantic relationship.
Jones was suspended by the commission after his November 2012 federal indictment. He has been receiving his $200,000 annual salary since then.
The indictment alleges Jones used the power of his Family Court office to carry out a $3 million investment fraud scheme with five other defendants between 2002 and 2012. His trial is in March.
The commission has been investigating similar financial fraud allegations against Jones, but that case, which dates to 2006, is tied up at the Nevada Supreme Court.
Jones traditionally has received high marks in the biannual Judicial Performance Evaluation sponsored by the Review-Journal.
In the 2011 survey, 70 percent of the lawyers who rated Jones said he should keep his position. But in the just-released 2013 evaluation, his popularity took a nosedive.
Only 30 percent of the respondents thought he should be retained. That was the lowest score of the 90 judges evaluated in the various local courts.
