The Law Offices of Jeffery M. Leving, Ltd., Ltd wins a victory in Cook County: Mother Incarcerated after Forcing Daughter to Falsely Accuse Father of Sexual Abuse

June 22, 2015

Litigator Leslie P. Poole won an important victory in Cook County and finally brought justice to a father by persuading the Judge to incarcerate his ex-wife for violating an order prohibiting her to contact her daughter and for owing over $50,000.00 in past-due child support. This occurred after the mother brainwashed her daughter to make false allegations of sexual abuse against her own father.

Our client was granted residential custody of their daughter in his divorce. In an attempt to gain leverage in her pursuit to change custody and terminate her child support obligation, our client’s ex-wife forced their daughter to make false allegations of sexual and physical abuse against her father to the Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS).

The ex-wife’s malicious attempt to interfere with the father’s relationship with his daughter failed when he turned to The Law Offices of Jeffery M. Leving, Ltd., to fight these serious and unfounded accusations. “The father faced wrongful incarceration and almost lost his relationship with his daughter.” said firm founder and attorney Jeffery M. Leving.

The Leving team fought vigorously to prove the allegations against the father were false. The mother’s manipulation of her daughter led the Judge to enter an order prohibiting her from contact with her daughter. Even after this order was entered, the mother continued to contact her daughter to convince her to make additional false allegations.

Given the danger and harm the mother had already caused this family, the Judge jailed the mother for her continued disregard of the no-contact order and for her failure to pay child support in an amount in excess of $50,000.00.

The child is now safe with our client and he is now able to live without the fear of being incarcerated based on false accusations.

This is another example of great lawyering and dedication to fathers and the protection of their children.
