Long Island Judge Jails Mother for Parental Alienation

A New York Superior Court judge has sentenced a mother to six weekends in jail for civil contempt, finding she engaged in a pattern of alienating behaviour, including false allegations of sexual abuse, calculated to interfere with her former husband's scheduled time and relationship with their children.

Supreme Court Justice Robert A. Ross in Nassau County... held Ms. R. in civil contempt and ordered her to report to the Nassau County Correctional Facility every other weekend this summer.

Her term was to have begun on Friday, but was temporarily stayed pending appeal by a judge from the Appellate Division, 2nd Department, on Thursday.

"The evidence before me demonstrates a pattern of willful and calculated violations of the clear and express dictates of the parties' Stipulation of Settlement," Ross wrote in Lauren R. v. Ted R., 203699-02.

"The extensive record is replete with instances of attempts to undermine the relationship between the children and their father and replace him with her new husband, manipulation of defendant's parenting access, utter and unfettered vilification of the defendant to the children, false reporting of sexual misconduct without any semblance of 'good faith,' and her imposition upon the children to fear her tirades and punishment if they embrace the relationship they want to have with their father."
