Family courts practices can lead to tragedy

In 2017, a Los Angeles man was sentenced to 5 years to life in prison for suffocating his 5-year-old son to death in his car seat, a move he admitted was to punish his estranged wife, the boy’s mother, who was fighting for full custody.

When the man failed to hand his son over during a planned custody exchange in April, the mother reported her son missing.

Officials believe the 35-year-old had attempted suicide after he was found alone the following day in Arroyo Seco Park, passed out from prescription pills in a car doused with gasoline.

Investigators searched the area surrounding Lake Cachuma several times before the boy’s remains were finally discovered on June 30, according to the Daily Mail.

Last February a Sacramento man, David Mora, shot and killed his three daughters during a court-ordered supervised visit, visits he was able to maintain with his children despite a history of documented violence and mental health problems.

Their mother had asked a judge not to approve the supervised visit.

Just last week, three people were shot and sustained non-life-threatening injuries during a child-custody exchange on Wednesday, Nov. 23, according to KPRC.

At some point during the exchange, the mother’s current boyfriend and her ex became involved in an altercation, according to police.

The ex-boyfriend, his mother and his brother were all hit by the gunfire, local media reported.
