well about 4 yr.s ago my grandaughter who was 5 at the time told her aunt stephanie .that her dads girlfriend now wifes son who was around 15 at the time was hurting her kitty,well cops were called and it was brought up in court but this judge ( kersh) said no proof so it did'nt happen..long story short my daughter would not give up and he said she was lieing so they took my grandaughter and put her where this teenage boy lived and she has been there ever since.well now there is a on going investigation of child abuse because the school called and reported brusies all over her body. she told noble county cps that her now step mom whipped her with a belt and makes her stay in her room where there is paper on her window so she can't look out.plus she told the cps her dad whips her with a belt too and puts her into a hot shower when she is bad..well cps took her out for 5 weeks then put her right back there even though they sent her mother a letter saying she was abused and needs to be taken out of this house because they said that her dad and stepmom are mentaley and physically abuseing her as well. so why is she still there? It's this judge who told my daughter he would never give her back to her all because he felt she lied about the molesting ..which my grandaughter still says he is doing it..my grandaughter needs someone to help her and no one in noble county seems to care..help us please. get it out of noble county court system because the judge seems to be bias.my grandaughter is almost 9 she needs all of us..melissa prater her grandmother..please don't wait till she is a dead child with no hope then..thank you for your time.
