It might be amusing, if it wasn't true:

Maryland woman files for divorce from husband, who has 2nd degree assault conviction for domestic violence. Four-day old infant plucked from her breast, as she begins 13 months in solitary confinement, now dead. Maryland woman added to Harford County's Ten Most Wanted List.

[Queue the Governors of New York State and Maryland.]

After six years of marriage filled with documented instances of domestic violence against her, Valerie Carlton divorced Russell Carlton in early 2006. They have one daughter, Winnifer Hope Carlton "Winnie".
About one year later, Mr. Carlton was awarded sole custody of the child after trial. False testimony was allowed into the record. Positive reports as to Valerie's character and fitness were considered to be "superficial" by the court.

For more information, take a look at the following link:


  1. Wait, who is "now dead"? I'm reading her blog and I don't see it. Is the child or Valerie dead?

  2. The child died after being removed from mother's care.

  3. A very interesting and well-detailed blog! I hope to see more of your write ups.Clients need to know all their options but not be misled or encouraged to take unreasonable risks. But clients also deserve to have a warrior in their corner to fight for what matters most if a dispute goes to trial. Discuss your divorce and family law matter during your free consultation.
