Many Divorcing parents in America who are unable to mutually agree on custody of their children end up in Family Court in front of a Judge. Some of these judges like Judge Thomas McAvoy “Mack” Brittain of Hendersonville, North Carolina are honorable, respectable and well qualified. When a judge like Judge Mack Brittain issues a judicial order, most reasonable people follow them. After sitting in court and going through a trial, the last thing any law-abiding person would want to do is violate any of a judge’s court order.
That is not the case of Joanne McDowell, after a Family Court Trial in front of of Judge Brittain, Joanne fled to Canada violating the Judicial Order to share custody of her son. There are media reports that after she left with her child crossing the border into Canada, she did not advertise her whereabouts. Since that parental kidnapping, the biological father has not seen or spoke to his child in over 6 years. And to make the situation even more horrendous, Joanne McDowell brags about her accomplishment on the Internet. She also blames Judge Mack Brittain, who was recently appointed as the chief district judge. Chief Justice Mark Martin of the North Carolina Supreme Court said “Judge Brittain has served with distinction as district court judge”.
Joanne McDowell also blames District Attorney Greg Newman who has filed Felony Warrants for the arrest of McDowell. McDowell who never finished law school calls this an illegal court order.
Editor’s Note: Joanne McDowell has no respect for America’s legal system and we simply don’t understand why she should not be extradited back to North Carolina to stand trial for the kidnapping charges. It is cruel for her to post inflammatory comments about the biological father of her child and we would assume that she is engaging in parental alienation. Joanne McDowell is no victim but she is a wanted fugitive in the United States. #ExtraditeHer
