Update on Brandi…CPS creating false report and Judge Kent Engle talking to witnesses at Center for Women in Transition

Brandi heads to court again Wednesday, January 4, 2017 @ 1:30pm.  This is despite the fact she has filed a motion for Judge Kent Engle to be removed from her case for not following the law, nor the Judicial Code of Conduct.  His hearing is on January 16, 2017 and HE IS THE JUDGE WHO WILL HEAR HIS OWN CASE!

Please be in prayer for this family and that Ottawa County Family Court will be forced to follow the law!

Brandi’s story, in her own words…

This is Brandi’s story. For those of you who are sensitive to language, there are a couple uses of profanity in retelling of the events. When you’ve been abused, and especially when you have to go back to that place to recall the trauma, it’s not pretty. I wish we could wrap it up in a shiny bow but that is not the reality of a battered mother’s life.

Please share this video and pray for this family. While you are praying, ask God where you fit into her story and how He would like you to help.

 


Battered mother helped by CWIT but not by Judge Kent Engle

This is from Brandi this fall who helped campaign for a new judge in Ottawa County, Mighigan… another battered mother, further abused by Judge Engle and Ottawa County Friend of the Court:
I’m urging voters to write in Robert Mol for judge to replace Judge Kent Engle on November 8. In 2014 my ex-boyfriend became violent with me when I was pregnant and threatened to kill me. Three weeks after my son was born, my ex-boyfriend was violent again while I was holding my newborn. I was granted a Personal Protection Order the next day.
A CPS case worker, Connie Velero, told me if I went back to him, she would take both of my children away because he was so dangerous. In the last three years, dozens of police and doctors reports with photographs taken by Ottawa County deputies of the abuse that we have suffered. My baby came back from his father’s with a black eye at 9 months old. The doctor from DeVos Children’s Hospital said my son’s injuries were not consistent with the father’s story of playing on the carpet.
My ex-boyfriend continued stalking and threatening me so I spent the next four months in hiding with Center for Women in Transition after meeting all of their strict criteria to verify abuse. CWIT is still helping me because of his ongoing stalking and threats.
I have been brought back to court repeatedly for denials of parenting time for protecting my son according to Michigan Child Abuse laws. Regardless of the doctors reports, police reports and time with CWIT, Judge Engle says that’s not enough to prove domestic violence. I’ve filed repeated motions and Judge Engle denies them. He is now forcing me into an investigation with Friend of the Court which I will have to pay for. I do not drink or do drugs, my daughter is in the gifted and talented program at school, I had a good job and a happy life and no legal issues before getting involved with this abusive man.
Judge Engle doesn’t care about my children and he is not protecting us after three years of constant abuse and harassment. He is not following child abuse laws and allows my ex to object to my motions filed but throws my objections out. I cannot afford a lawyer as three previous lawyers I hired all stated Ottawa County is a father’s rights county and I will never win in their court.
Please vote for Robert Mol to break up this very corrupt family court starting with voting Judge Engle out. Robert cares about the best interest of the children and will follow the law in every case.
