Clearly there is a big difference between Ohio and New Hampshire. Their Judicial System did not physically place these teens in Castro's hands and leave them their after the fact. Judge Lucinder Sadler has been scrutinize and rightfully so, for wrongful rulings in multiple child custody cases. As they say, if it walks and talks like one, then it clearly must be one. Judge Sadler handed custody of Jamie Doherty's son to his father, based only on the one clarification she stated in court, "He said...she said...somebody get me some evidence."
Well Judge Sadler wants evidence? She got evidence! Just a little over a month ago the father and his girlfriend went before the courts. They both were charged with Domestic Violence, both Court ordered into anger management classes, and each fined $500. Well clearly the child support that Judge Sadler ordered Ms. Doherty to pay, would not be going to the child's needs, if paid to the father. On May 10, 2013, Judge Sadler held another hearing on this case. The father and his girlfriend now unsurprisingly were a no show, but his attorney now shows up with his mother instead! She then informs Judge Sadler, that her client was not given sufficient notice for this hearing to inform his employer. However, a 3 weeks notice is clearly sufficient time for any responsible attorney to properly inform the courts of necessary changes.
When Ms. Doherty, who is Pro Se, requested to have her mother sit with her during this hearing, Judge Sadler denied her request. When Ms. Doherty requested a continuance because of the fathers absence, her request was denied without findings of facts or ruling of law. When Ms. Doherty insisted and demanded a continuance again, Judge Sadler then denied Ms. Doherty's request, stating they can do a conference call with the father, who was now presently at work for his employer, who supposedly was not permitting his absence in the first place, but now would supposedly permit his employee, to handle the situation by phone from work. There was no conference call. Well, once again stupidity clearly only is, as stupidity clearly does and gets! It still remains to be seen what Judge Sadler will do with Ms. Doherty's other custody case within her hands.
If NH Doctors and hospitals ever began to practice their field in medicine, the same as NH Judges and the majority of NH Lawyers practice their field in law, the malpractice suits alone would permanently be shutting doors to any medical treatment or needs throughout the state. The irony of this case is once upon a time, Judge Sadler just gave custody of Ms. Doherty's eldest child, to the father, Elwood McLlarky, just simply based on hearsay. But when Ms. Doherty supported her argument in court with his police records, Judge Sadler immediately overturned her ruling and gave custody back to Ms. Doherty.
To acknowledge ones mistake and be able to correct it is all anyone can ask of one. Mr. McLlarky then decided to move up to the Conway NH region, then kidnapped the child, enrolled her in school, then filed for custody and won. Unlike Judge Sadler at the time, Conway NH's Judge Albee did not share Judge Sadler's views and supported his criminal record and his multiple Domestic Violence records. When Ms. Doherty went public 2 months ago with her custody case, only then did Judge Albee quickly make the decision to run for the NH hills. She quickly closed the case, once again, stating non existing evidence, that was never documented in the 6 years of this case, as findings of facts or ruling of laws, leaving the child permanently in the father's Domestic Violence custody, never to see her mother again. Judge Sadler still can choose to correct her mistakes, as she has proven to do so in the past, to do right by these children. Will she do so still remains to be seen.
Like Judge Albee, Judge Sadler strongly supports her views on Domestic Violence and will do so in NH Court records no less. When Ms. Doherty informed Judge Sadler of the father's latest arrest for Domestic Violence, his attorney then asked Judge Sadler, what does that have to do with this case? clearly implying one has nothing to do with the other. Well NH, do you really think Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus, and Michelle Knight would agree right now with NH's Justices and lawyers, placing children in the custody of Domestic Violence?
