Virginia Mother Jailed for Talking to Son's Doctors and Reporting Physical Abuse by Father

Contact: Janice Grenadier, 202-368-7178

ALEXANDRIA, Va., June 18, 2018 /Standard Newswire/ -- A young mother was jailed Friday for reporting physical abuse of her son by the father to government authorities and for talking to her 10 year old son's therapist and psychiatrist about her medical concerns for her son.

Hard to believe? The court reporter transcripts reveal it all in Cases CJ 14001064 and 14001065 in Alexandria Circuit Court in Virginia. Her attorney is Jonathon Moseley (703) 656-1230.

Judge Lisa Kemler announced in her official decision before a court reporter that she was punishing the mother for making a report of the son's accounts of abuse to government authorities and for talking to her son's doctors, therapist, and psychiatrist.

Natalia Dalton's son told many adults (recorded) that his father physically abused him. She shows her photographs of her own injuries when she says Julio Lacayo beat her.

In November 2017, Natalia took her son to the Magistrate in Alexandria. The son met alone with the Magistrate for 15 minutes.

The Magistrate issued an Emergency Protective Order, ordered the child removed from the father's home, and sent the police to serve the father who was heard screaming in front of the son.

But the father yanked the son out of school the next day, and began to home school him, removed from any adults who could learn about the abuse and report it.

A month ago, a supervised visitation "monitor" Laurie Best appointed by Judge Kemler also reported the son's account of physical abuse to Child Protective Services. Laurie Best testified that in the trial (on the transcript) that what the son volunteered to her triggered her legal mandatory reporting requirements.

Judge Kemler refused to call the son to speak for himself and the father objected to the son being interviewed in chambers by Judge Kemler or to testify.

Natalia Dalton also warned her son's psychiatrist that the son was complaining that psychiatric medication was causing alarming side effects and making him irritable, forgetful, disoriented, and feeling weird.

In the court case, Natalia Dalton was accused and punished for warning the son's prescribing psychiatrist of side effects despite an earlier court order.

Natalia Dalton strongly and flatly denied ever sharing these concerns with her son, but only among adults treating him. There was absolutely no evidence or testimony that the son was affected.

Natalia Dalton is raising money to pay for the transcripts at www.NataliaMom.com.
