    The non-custodial parent kidnaps the child a second time and is not arrested? Oh, I forgot - women are perfect in Utah. If it had been a non-custidial father his picture would have been in the paper along with every crime ever commited by him or a family member. And, the public would be calling for his execution.

    Custody Cases are often hard and it is very hard for the male parent to get full custody.

    Most of the Sins of Divorce do not affect Custody, plus the Lawyer for the father often has a you can't win so be nice attitude.

    Weak Lawyers are the biggest compliant of fathers who can't get custody, even if their is a smoking gun. Such as a female child and a mother with a predator boyfriend or new husband. As in "last chance for a man dance.

    Church rehab goes out the window if that male does not want anything to do with the Church. Church vs Man in this demographic the Church loses.

    Protection of the Child is utmost but there are requirements for an Amber Alert and for good reason. If there where too many No One would pay attention.

    Custody is viewed by some people as something between the parents. Mothers having the rights by just being mothers regardless of law.

    She would get Home Schooled from Now On.
    I doubt that there would be charges against the mother if there was No Harm except for Physiological to the girl. Also kid witnesses who are Victims of Divorce.

    There are some people who believe that a child and a female child always belongs with Natural Mother Regardless and there are Organizations that do their best to make sure that happen.

    As an abuse Victim that was left in the Custody of a Male Parent I was the victim of unchecked abuse from age 8 to age 16. My mother had been scared to death to fight for custody not that she could have taken care of me in the first place, being the time and season in New England.

    Her family said for her to come home but do Not under any conditions bring me.

    I was not consulted and I am told the judge did what he had to do. I would have voted for foster care or at least a State Group Home. However that was not happening. He proved that I was being feed, clothed and housed and that was all the case workers wanted to know. Never once was I examined by or taken to a Dr. after a beating. School Officials just did not want to know and when they did know they did not tell and we moved often. Usually after I made friends.

    Just how can there not be charges against the mother in this case? This is the 2nd time give her some jail time.
