This is why parents and step parents should not kidnap children. They end up arrested, in jail wearing those orange prison jumpsuits. On April 15, 2015 Scott Kelley was finally arrested for the kidnapping of a 8 year old innocent child. Ten years ago, Scott Kelley and his wife Genevieve Kelley could have stayed in the United States and shared custody with the child’s biological father a physician and his wife as ordered by the Family Law Court in New Hampshire. They could have shared custody of the child like so many divorcing parents in America do. Instead, they elected to flee the country to Honduras and Costa Rica to start a new life. They also were expecting a child.
Ten Years later, Scott Kelley, a teacher is now behind bars as he awaits extradition to New Hampshire. Genevieve Kelley, once a doctor was also arrested and is currently out on bail awaiting trial in May. You have to think, what kind of parents are these? Both have not only committed career ending felony crimes but should serve a prison sentences. Now there only defense is to try their case in the media and hope to get off like the Casey Anthonys, George Zimmermans and OJ Simpsons of this World.
What I don’t understand is what would have been so bad about joint custody?
Editor’s Note: In the end, hundreds of thousands of dollars or more will be spent on the criminal investigation, trial and sentencing for a criminal act committed by these two individuals and their accomplices. It is important that our legal system ensure that the Kelleys are fully punished for this pathetic crime. It is also important that the media not sensationalize this pathetic crime. Parental kidnapping should never be a reasonable legal alternative to our Family Courts.
