It might be amusing, if it wasn't true:
Maryland woman files for divorce from husband, who has 2nd degree assault conviction for domestic violence. Four-day old infant plucked from her breast, as she begins 13 months in solitary confinement, now dead. Maryland woman added to Harford County's Ten Most Wanted List.
[Queue the Governors of New York State and Maryland.]
After six years of marriage filled with documented instances of domestic violence against her, Valerie Carlton divorced Russell Carlton in early 2006. They have one daughter, Winnifer Hope Carlton "Winnie".
About one year later, Mr. Carlton was awarded sole custody of the child after trial. False testimony was allowed into the record. Positive reports as to Valerie's character and fitness were considered to be "superficial" by the court.
In an attempt to terminate Valerie's visitation, Mr. Carlton conspired with Karen Anders, Valerie's feuding neighbor, who had twice been found to have filed false sexual abuse charges against her own family, to have Valerie charged with attempted abduction of daughter, Winnifer.
After unsuccessful civil attempts to terminate his ex-wife's visitation , Russell and his mother, Leslie Caffey, convinced Winnie's teacher, and school administrators' that Valerie was abusing her daughter. Thereafter, Winnifer's teacher made a report of sexual abuse allegations to her Anne Arundel County, Maryland's CPS. However, almost imediately, CPS of Harford County, Maryland, where Valerie resided, and the Sheriff's office in Harford County then used Russell Carlton's and Karen Ander's false testimony, together with Valerie's then opportunistic "boyfriend", Jacob Gendleman, to falsely charge Valerie with 28 felony counts, including fabricated, sensational claims of pedophilia by Ms. Carlton on her own six year old daughter, and on Karen Ander's five year old daughter. (In video recorded interrogations, Winnifer did say that she wanted to see her mommy more!). She also stated that her father's nephew was exposing himself to her, and implicating her father's female neighbor. No investigation was made concerning the older boy's inappropriate behavior, or the female neighbor.
The state eventually dropped all of the charges, but only after Ms. Carlton was imprisoned for thirteen months in solitary and confined isolation for crimes she did not commit, and not before Valerie Carlton was accused of assaulting a prison guard. She was a few weeks from being released without charges when "the assault" took place. Videotapes, from within the prison show a brutal assault taking place....of Ms. Carlton by a strapping, male prison guard. Upon her release from Harford, Valerie, fearing for her life fled to New York State. There, she was arrested almost one year later by Federal Marshalls on a warrant calling for her to face charges related to the "assault on the Harford County Detention, private prison corrections officer".
She was incarcerated again, this time in the Rockland County jail, with her case brought to New York's Governor Andrew Cuomo.
