The laws protect child victims of sexual abuse so that the convicted can never have unsupervised contact with children. The law does NOT prevent a father who almost murdered his son and who was convicted of felony child abuse from asking the court for unsupervised visitation or custody of his children. Logan was almost murdered by the severe abuse his father committed, however his dad still has parental rights??? Something is NOT right, and we need to stand up for the VICTIMS rights. Protect the children and do not allow for a preventable death to occur by repeated child abuse. Please follow our story and our mission on The Fight for Logan's Law Facebook page at facebook.com/protect.logan.

      The statutes state that the courts may never grant anything other than unsupervised visits to the offender of sexual abuse. This statute should include people convicted of felony child abuse as well: NOT ONLY sexual abuse crimes. To be very specific I am trying to change the statutes in Chapter 452 regarding visitation and custody when the parent is convicted of child abuse

      If the abusive father were to get a lawyer and take me back to court for unsupervised visitation, there are NO laws stopping him from doing so. I believe this is a black and white case; this should be open and closed as there is a conviction of felony child abuse. I should not have to obtain counsel and fight for his parental rights to be terminated in order to stop him from getting unsupervised visitation. If this was a sexual crime, no petition would need to be filed because the law would automatically prevent courts from granting anything other than supervised visitation to the abuser. I am asking for the same law that is in affect to protect victims of sexual abuse, to be applied to victims of felony child abuse that is not sexual as well. If his crime against my son had been sexual like the covered statutes above, my son would be protected. Missouri and the rest of the country is so focused on crimes of sexual nature, that other crimes that are just as serious are forgotten about

      Because animals don't have a "voice" and we as their protectors need to be that voice for them.
