"There is a warrant out for your arrest."
That’s what Officer Stanley of the Green Township Police Department told me when he called on the afternoon of September 11, 2009.
On August 18, 2009, Dearborn County (IN) Circuit Court Judge James D Humphrey terminated my visitation with my three and five year old daughters. Judge Humphrey’s orders made no mention that I was not to contact the children by phone so I called my ex-wife and I talked to the girls on the phone. On September 5, 2009, my ex-wife sent me a text message stating, “You are not to contact me anymore. Any and all communication needs to be done through my attorney Angela Loechel.” She decided that she was not going to let the girls talk to their father so she had me arrested for telecommunication harassment in Hamilton County, Ohio.
Backing up a bit, the Dishonorable Judge James D Humphrey gave her everything that she wanted; $122,000 of my parents’ farmland that I have no control of, property that belonged to other people, whatever she wanted that was in the house, and of course sole “possession” of our children. Judge Humphrey even wrote in the final decree, “Husband shall be restrained and enjoined from abusing, harassing, or disturbing the peace of or committing any assault or battery upon the Wife and the children of the parties. Despite no evidence of abuse, harassment, assault, etc… against my ex-wife, and absolutely no accusations that I ever abused or neglected my children, Judge Humphrey gave my ex-wife all the protection she could ever ask for from an Indiana Court. If she thought my phone calls were harassing, she could have held me in contempt. The only problem was she would have to explain to Judge Humphrey that she decided to eliminate any chance of the children communicating with their father. The Indiana Parenting Time Guidelines state:
“Both parents shall have reasonable phone access to their child at all times. Telephone communication with the child by either parent to the residence where the child is located shall be conducted at reasonable hours, shall be of reasonable duration, and at reasonable intervals, without interference from the other parent.”
The Guidelines also state:
“Examples of unacceptable interference with communication include a parent refusing to answer a phone or refusing to allow the child or others to answer; a parent recording phone conversations between the other parent and the child; turning off the phone or using a call blocking mechanism or otherwise denying the other parent telephone contact with the child.”
If her contention was that Judge Humphrey’s orders prohibited me from talking to the girls on the phone, she violated the orders for allowing me to speak to them. Since the orders did not prohibit me from contacting the children by phone, she was in violation of the Indiana Parenting Time Guidelines for refusing to allow the girls to speak to me on the phone. Since she did not have an avenue to hurt me in the Indiana Courts, she and her parents had me arrested in Hamilton County, Ohio.
