Defendant Michelle Wolferts and Brittany Wolferts Dangerfield
As the Wolferts Sisters Parental Kidnapping Case unfolds, it is becoming more evident that Brittany Wolferts Dangerfield may have been involved. And it is also evident that the 20-year old doesn’t understand who files charges in Criminal Cases (Hasn’t she ever seen an episode of Law and Order?) In a interview with Kurt Hanson (@hansonherald) of the Daily Herald, the young adult says:
“[Brittany Wolferts] Dangerfield said “she [her mother] was surprisingly issued charges relating to housing fraud, though she doesn’t know why or how she [her mother] was charged. She believes a third party, who accused her [mother] of knowing where her sisters were when they first went missing, filed the charges against her.”
“[Brittany Wolfers] Dangerfield said she’s filed criminal charges with the Orem Police Department against her father…”
It’s too bad the Daily Herald Reporter, Kurt Hanson didn’t correct the young adult. Instead, he printed exactly what she said. We know that this reporter certainly knows that only Prosecutors or District Attorneys can file charges in a criminal proceeding. Perhaps Hanson intentionally left that in to expose the tenets of these proclaimed Family Court Critics.
Moving on to Michelle Wolferts who has been charged with custodial interference, filing a false police reporting and housing fraud. As a charged defendant, she is giving an interview to Utah Family TV Blogger/Lawyer Eric K. Johnson. How many defendants awaiting trial do we hear giving interviews without their attorneys present? Or does her daughter Brittany believe she is her attorney or perhaps her social media attorney in the court of public opinion.
From the interview, it really difficult to believe the mother wasn’t orchestrating each movement of her older daughter while she was underground or in hiding. And I find it very difficult to believe the District Attorney doesn’t have evidence against Brittany Wolferts to also charge her as a third party conspirator. As this case continues to unfold, the District Attorney should indict the mother and daughter on new Felony Charges. It’s apparent that they do not believe in the severity of the charges.
On Friday, the judge wanted the girls’ guardian ad litem to find a professional therapist for the girls. Both Michelle Wolferts and her daughter Brittany Wolferts have supervised visitation with the girls who many believe to have Stockholm Syndrome. Of course this has angered Michelle and Brittany. The father through his attorney Brian Wilkinson said his client is also involved in finding the girls therapy.
Both Michelle Wolferts and Brittany Wolferts have voiced their opinion against the Family Court System. As the case returns to the same process that Michelle fled, you hope that it will eventually be time for them to take ownership and responsibility for their criminally deviant actions. These teenagers like the Rucki girls deserve a chance at Reunification and therapy.
