Judge Christine Goldsmith: Bring Damon Home!

    1. Kathy Green
    2. Petition by

      Kathy Green

      San Diego, CA

Damon has recently made history being one of the first children to be able to hire his own attorney and file his own motion requesting that his new judge, Judge Christine Goldsmith, finally protect him from his abusive father and allow him to live with his mom. You can help by signing and sharing this petition.  

Despite Damon's bravery in telling many professionals about sexual, physical and emotional abuse by his father, Eric Moelter, he was forced into Eric's full custody by San Diego Judge Lorna Alksne. Judge Alksne refused to do a proper investigation or adjudication of the abuse and ignored, dismissed and covered up evidence. She made a no contact order between Damon and his mom because they will not stay silent about the abuse and stop trying to get protection. On July 11, 2011, Damon ran away from his father's house and has been in hiding ever since. See: Saving Damon.

Damon is telling everyone about the abuse now in the hope that getting public support will help him finally be protected. But this puts him in danger because Eric threatened to kill him if he told anyone. Alycia Mesiti-Allen's father and a Long Beach man are currently charged with murdering their children to silence them about sexual abuse.

Damon is also in danger of being sent to a lock-down behavioral modification program, as the court has threatened to do and Eric has attempted to do in the past (See: Damon to Camp?). These 'treatment' centers use electric shock and other forms of torture to coerce kids to recant sexual abuse, thereby absolving the perpetrator of the abuse and the court of enabling it. As long as Eric has custody, they can send Damon to one of these places. See: Rotenberg Center: Is This Torture or Treatment for Teens? and "Help At Any Cost," by Maia Szalavitz.  

Giving custody of children to an abuser, while taking them away from their protective parent, is a common problem in family courts. A Life Sentence is a new article by a human rights investigative journalist which depicts the problem.  Damons List is a website dedicated to Damon that names and shames many judges and their appointees who are reported to give custody of children to their abusers. Protective parents and their allies are uniting on FB:  Safe Kids International

Damon is a straight A student, active in drama, and loved by all his friends at Poway High School.  He misses them, his brothers and mother very much and wants to come home. 

Damon's hearing is June 21st at 9 am in San Diego Family Court, Dept. F3. Please join us in calling on Judge Christine Goldsmith to grant Damon the protection and justice he deserves.

    2. Judge Christine Goldsmith ordered Damon into the full custody of his rapist

      Kathy Green
      Petition Organizer

      On June 21st, Judge Chrisine Goldsmith chose to completely ignore Damon's direct testimony to the court that he had been sexually abused and threatened for many years, and gave full custody to his rapist. Such reckless disregard for the safety of children is par for the course in family courts. It is all about politics and money, not about what's best for children. We need to stop judges from giving kids to abusers. Go to SafeKidsInternational.org for ideas on how to do that.

    3. New article by Human Rights investigative journalist, Keith Harmon Snow

      This article confirms that family courts are taking children away from their protective moms and ordering them into the custody of molesters and abusers.

      It's amazing how these cases may be happening in the United States. We have become a country with no rights, where the protection of minors simply does not exist. It's amazing that our children are not heard, they continue to suffer in silence, covering sexual abuse by their parents and that the accusations are justified by the terms of "coaching" or "alienation". without really investigating what is happening, ignoring their fears, their reactions and the consequences of an uncertain future.

      What do you think our authorities, the judges have chosen it ourselves, the Department of Children and Family Services or Child Protection. That is going to happen to those children growing up under trauma, pain and insecurity, what are the psychological consequences that ultimately descend upon our society, children committing suicide frustrated or buried in a world of drugs to escape the dark world in which they lived thank the authorities who condemned his defense and awarded the abuser.

      From here I am calling on all authorities, Representatives, Congressmen and more to join this fight. To all those mothers who have lived or live a similar story like Damon, all those mothers who like me fight against the supposed reviewers or psychologists who wanted to cover up the evidence issued by a Hospital and an Agency tasked Sexual Abuse Treatment.

      It's time to fight for our children, to overcome injustice, to defend their rights. Children do not lie, the consequences can not be invented, reactions of fear and dread, the trembling of a child can not train.

      Coaching and alienation are just pretexts used by lawyers to defend their clients and around them a mob of evaluators, psychologists, social workers, guardians ad litem and judges coming together to destroy evidence against the predators. I have often wondered why? What's behind all this? In this dark world where the abuser is treated like people and the complainant as criminal.

      Let us raise our voice and UNITE FORCES TO GET our children, to grow up with mental health AND happiness they deserve.

      And support people who are struggling to CHANGE THIS FOR A HAPPY ENDING NIGHTMARE.

      REMEMBER: "A mother's fight with everything and everything for their children" At the end of road there is always a glimmer of hope. With faith in God we can overcome this evil, lift up a prayer to our Father to give us the wisdom to save the children victims of the system.

      The CA family law judges gave my son to his self-admitted battering and abusing father when my son was only 4 years old. The father denied me my CA court-ordered visitation for 19 years, and that is time in which my son and I have not seen one another. Today my son is in desperate conditions on the streets of Los Angeles into drugs and selling himself for sex. Now isn't the CA family court system proud of itself???
