Members of Anonymous have come to the aid of parents trapped in Santa Clara County Family Courts, as a result, more and more adult children have been empowered and motivated to speak out to tell what actually happened to them as their parents divorced in the affluent Silicon Valley, with the hope of helping children trapped there now.
The children explain the traditional money hiding and custody abuses often imposed by parents during a divorce were the least of their worries.
As the children tell their stories, cloaked in anonymity , they tell of horrific abuse they endured. mostly at the hands of a parent the county awarded exclusive custody during a divorce case, where one parent was represented and the other parent has no money to pay a lawyer.
The children also describe state and county agencies such as CPS , that imposed sexual and emotional abuse on them and their innocent parents, a system they knew early on was designed to silence them.
Pediatricians, retained by local family courts , appear to be in on the scandal, and dating back to 2013. as covered in the San Jose Mercury by Karen De Sa. Many people such as doctors and lawyers who allowed the conduct to be imposed on the children appear to have been guilty of it themselves.
Critics claim Jeff Rosen , the Santa Clara County district attorney, looked the other way in family law cases. As an example, in a case eerily similar to Bill Cosby's accusers, a wife alleged her wealthy husband had sexually abused her . If the charges had been made by someone other than a wife against a husband, they would have received immediate attention from police, the DA, and even the media. Mr. Rosen is now coming under fire for letting a wealthy real estate mogul off the hook and ignoring the allegations of his former wife.
Mr. Rosen appears to be unwilling to help any woman in a family court matter. Mr. Rosen may have more to explain since the Attorney General finally is asking questions.
Most troubling by the information provided by the now adult children is how they describe abuse imposed by court appointed minor's counsel, psychologists and custody evaluators. used bythe family court system. It is clear many are acting under the color of law to shield pedophiles and protect known child abusers, drug users and rapists, often the wealthier parent , in Santa Clara Family Court divorce cases.
For profit, and perhaps to conceal their own misconduct, these professionals appear to have been willing to ignore police reports, independent doctor evaluations, and even school reports, subjecting the children they were sworn to protect, to years of sexual abuse, mental harm and even death, all because the children had parents trapped in Santa Clara Family Courts by way of a divorce case.
This is not news to Santa Clara County, The county been sweeping these issues under the rug since the late 1990's and most recently in 2009.
In 2009 a judge awarded custody to a represented father, with a long sex abuse and drug use history. That father, harassed the pro per mother , denied her proper support , and got a layer to have him awarded 100% custody. Three years later his own daughter's remains were found after it was revealed the father drugged , raped and killed his own daughter.
As County spokespeople said they were sorry and " missed the signs", court files show little has changed and now people abused as children are coming forward to stop the abuse and crimes against the county's children.
At the same time this case was going on , Brad Baugh, the nefarious lawyer in Santa Clara, was getting full custody for a father with a prescription drug and depression history. Mr. Baugh and the children's lawyer , Heather Allan , ignored a pro per mother's evidence on the father's abusive history and drug use, while they got Judge Grilli to order 100% custody for the father, Oliver Gabe. the wealthy step son of Sean Connery.
Judge Grilli and Judge Towery seem to be at the center of many of the county's most problematic family law cases where attorney misconduct is allowed to run rampant, and then rewarded some of the most nefarious lawyers with high fees and sanctions awards. These judges actually sanction and charge women whose husbands are abusing their children until the women have no money to defend their own children or speak out against the system, It is a pattern seen exactly like the one uncovered in the Catholic Church sex scandal by the Boston Globe, and recently portrayed in the movie Spotlight .
The money behind this is huge, in Silicon Valley alone it amounts to billons of dollars. This funding has made it possible for sex abusers , pedophiles and rapists to continue harming children , where they are let off the hook in Santa Clara family courts.
The courts allow the abusers , true criminals, to continue to perpetuate their crimes against children through the financial dealings of the Santa Clara County's middle class divorce cases. Over and over these cases show the same judges deprive one parent of community property , custody, discovery and other statutory and constitutionally protected rights, as a well funded represented parent is permitted to continue abusing raping, drugging and even killing their own children , and hiding money they use to fund their crimes and pay their lawyers , often in cash , not reported to the IRS.
Most recently Santa Clara County appears to be blocking media efforts to cover family court misconduct involving the lawyers and judges at the epicenter of harboring known rapists, pedophiles and child abusers in family law matters. The county is not responding to media requests, or denying is denying requests for coverage of high profile divorce cases where these issues are at hand.
More demands for Jeff Rosen to stop ignoring family court issues in his county are now coming from the Attorney General's office. It is widely known Mr. Rosen has been too soft on judges and lawyers in this county for too long and the conduct, imposed largely against children, has flourished as a result.
No where else in our society do we tolerate this and harbor alleged sex abusers, rapists and pedophiles. If a teacher were accused the police and district attorney would rush in , but in family law , it is all hands off and children are suffering as a result .
In addition to their own parents abusing them, while protected by family court, some children describe being subjected to weekly therapy visits, where the children sat in silence as perverted " experts" eyed and brushed up against them , in dark " cave " like offices. Others described " supervised " visits where a court sanctioned supervisor would show up drunk or stoned and offer illegal dugs or vodka slipped into water bottles to children. It now appears many of these " experts' are being used as a gatekeeper to find young vulnerable teens for the county's underground human trafficking rings.
Several children tell of running away to escape what they knew was coming. Others "manufactured " teen problems at home and school to divert attention from their problems in family courts.
Nearly all the children reported feeling labeled as " troubled or " defiant " and embarrassed at school when county authorities sought information related to child support and school attendance. The children felt " criminalized' by their parents family court process.
Some of the now adult children report that they developed eating disorders, and others began to " cut" or harm their bodies, just hoping to find relief from the pain family courts imposed on their childhoods. Others displayed stress in less outward ways.
Several female children explained how they were sexually groomed by custody experts during weekly therapy sessions , while others describe their children's lawyer "hitting " on them for years, after they reached puberty, and where the lawyers were protected so the children could not speak out, often hearing " you are lucky, you have a lawyer'.
As more of these victims join the original Brave 20, to tell their stories, they hope to save other children still being harmed by family courts. They all agree that coming forward, with the assurance of privacy and respect. has helped them find camaraderie where they once felt very alone.
