This woman must be completely held accountable for the abuse and endangerment of chidlren by allowing cohabitation with a complete stranger. It should be made illegal and against the law and a violation of divorce decrees that automatically reverses custody to other parent. If both parents are living in non marital non committed living conditions then the state should take control of the children until the situation is corrected.

The majority of child abuse cases are by live in cohabiting adults and woman need to be forced into lives of independence. Only after people get married should custodial parents be allowed to live together when children are involved. Fathers should have the right to be custodial parent if mothers are chronic to cohabitation. Its sickening to see children being forced by bad parenting into life threatening abusive conditions. Women who take on men to ease loneliness do not deserve child support and fathers deserve more power and custodial rights over their childrens living conditions.

she was able to call a friend when he left for work, and now the police believe he has returned to Mexico? this sounds like not only was he an abusive partner and a danger to the woman and her children, but also an illegal alien. if so, how did he get a job without proof of his legal status. "there is something rotten in Denmark."

It takes two to cohabitate, and when a woman gets married who also is a mother with children, guess what? It's even harder to get out of the marriage than it is the live-in situation. So what's the difference? A legal barrier that, in some states, could make a difference between life and death. My2Cents, I assume you are perfect,or know every single situation? If not, please keep your blanket statements folded and put in the closet...they don't really stand the light of day.

@ My2Cents: So, you want to trap women into these situations and make sure they can't leave them?

If women get prosecuted for making bad decisions, they will stick with those decisions until they or their children are dead.

It is hard enough to leave an abusive situation without criminalizing being a victim.

And where is/are the father/fathers of these children, ages 3, 5, and 9?

And was the "boyfriend" not an illegal alien who also was working in this country illegally, probably for someone who was taught in Sunday School class something about "obeying, honoring, and sustaining the law?"

This and other manifestations of Utah's culture being dragged down is the result of constant twisting and wresting of true doctrine in an effort to rationalize illegal immigration for the benefit of various selfish, unscrupulous special interests.

Will Utah ever clean up its moral act?

Or will it go the way of California, that other sanctuary for illegal aliens, down the toilet?
