The following is from Stopfamilyviolence.org:
Joyce Murphy’s powerful testimony to the California Assembly Special Committee on Domestic Violence about her experience with San Diego Family Court.
When the family court accused Joyce Murphy of Parental Alienation and gave overnight visits to the father, despite his known use of child pornography, Joyce Murphy took her daughter and ran. “I thought, either I go to jail or I protect my child.” Murphy and her daughter were caught, the mother jailed; the daughter returned to the father’s custody. Now, six years later, Murphy’s ex-husband is behind bars after molesting 3 other young girls. Murphy feels vindicated, but it’s bittersweet. “I blame the entire family court system,” she said, “because they are not held accountable.”
