Genevieve and Scott Kelley and their supporters appear to be still asking donors to give them money on their Facebook page. This is insulting for two convicted parental kidnappers to be promote themselves as victims. Because of their actions, they caused the State of New Hampshire and the U.S. Government to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars. Had they merely abided by the court order and taken the young child to clinic for evaluation, then they wouldn’t be in this situation today.
If they need money, then they can’t be adequately caring for their 19 year old adult child that was their admitted victim in their parental kidnapping conviction. I understand unlike in other cases, the adult child is yet to reunify with her biological father.
It’s apparent that we need new legislation for the International Parental Kidnapping Crime to not only deter others from committing this crime but to ensure that the victim child is properly cared for upon recovery. If there is any lesson learned from the 10 year kidnapping of the child, that’s one of them. I would think the other is what not to do.
