Oh for pete’s sake…one can NOT make this stuff up!

The lawyer trying to convince the judge to prevent the registered citizen from living with the kids is attempting to use OUR arguments AGAINST the RC!

But Anthony Lanni’s attorney, Vince Manzella, said Rachael Lanni is “putting her needs above her children’s.” He said the children would suffer if Ireland resides with them.

He cited a 2009 study that by two university professors that indicate the “psychosocial consequences” on a child who has a parent on the sex offender registry. Fifty-eight percent of respondents said the child was treated differently at school, 78 percent said the child’s friendships were impacted, and 71 percent said the child had become “stigmatized.”

Other effects include anger, 80 percent; harassment by others, 47 percent; ridicule by others, 59 percent, depression 77 percent and suicidal tendencies, 13 percent.

SERIOUSLY? You realize that this argument, now that it is part of a court record by a source that did NOT emanate from the RC’s legal arguments, can now be appropriated by US as ADMITTING that the registry hurts kids. The idiot just opened the door for us!

(As for the actual case, it should be a slam dunk for the allowing the RC to live with the kids, but then again, I’ve seen slam dunks missed before.)

This is a keeper.

link for this ?

I’m quoting from the actual article the post links to. Click “Full Article” at the end of the post.

What ended up happening? I can’t find the judge’s decision anywhere.
