In anticipation of the Genevieve Kelley and Scott Kelley criminal trial for Felony Interference with Custody and Felony Witness Tampering and having followed other criminal protective parent trials, I often wonder if this trial is more of a protest than a legal trial.
For months, Defense Attorney Alan Rosenfeld has been trying to take a video deposition of the adult-child involved in this case. In previous cases, Rosenfeld has used a video deposition to pretty much get the alleged victim child to say just about anything by asking leading questions. In a number of those cases, I have been told that these alleged victims later recanted their testimony and terminated their relationship with their parental kidnapper.
Despite the judge in this case disallowing the video deposition, the issue continues to come up in motions like some form of political protest.
Many of us also question the mental capacity of this adult child that has some sort of special need. So far, there is not one independent professional that has evaluated this adult child. Yet the Defense Attorney was able to get her to read an inflammatory letter that she most likely didn’t write in a video. The video was produced by controversial journalist Elaine Aradillas of People Magazine. It wouldn’t surprise us to see Rosenfeld try and enter the video as evidence during the trial.
The State Prosecutor has attempted to deposition this child but to our knowledge, the adult-child has so far not be produced for deposition. In the Family Abduction Community, we would say that the child is still kidnapped from her custodial father. The Kelleys had 10 years to brainwash this child, but since she isn’t being produced for deposition, we would conclude that she sadly doesn’t have the mental capacity. The adult child has apparently been kept from the child’s biological family by Genevieve and Scott Kelley but not from an interview from People Magazine. We hope that we are not the only ones that feel that something doesn’t feel right about that.
At a recent New Jersey Conference of protective parents, Defense Attorney Alan Rosenfeld admits to being arrested numerous times in acts of civil disobedience. He appears to encourage other protective parents and their supporters to also do so. Over ten years ago, Genevieve and Scott Kelley could have taken the then 7 year old child to a Clinic in Maine to have professionals evaluate the child. Instead, they engaged in several acts of civil disobedience: they tampered with the evidence in this case; hid the child from her custodial father and authorities; disregarded an order by the New Hampshire Court and are most importantly are continuing to hide the child today. As was the case 10 years ago, the Kelleys are not and were never interested in the best interests of the child, they are selfishly interested in only themselves.
We have followed these protective parent cases for well over 20 years now. It is genuinely very frustrating to see in 2015 that these protective parent cases are still appear to be a protest of our Nation’s Family Court System. Genevieve and Scott Kelley did not believe in our court system 10 years ago, why would you expect them to believe in it today. They will and as will this attorney do everything possible to disrupt the truth and the legal adjudication of this case.
It is important that the State of New Hampshire ensure that they get a guilty verdict in this case and do everything possible to deter others from committing this horrible and heinous crime against children.
