On April 13th, the Parkers were falsely accused of abusing their then 6 week old son. Both children were removed from their home, without knowing when they would see them again. Their son Dylan was a nursing infant at the time, and both mother and child were denied any contact. After 3 weeks, the Parker’s were granted liberal visitation, but they still had a long battle ahead of them. Mrs. Parker lost the ability to nurse her son, after having no contact with him for those 3 weeks. Despite pumping, and supplement efforts, the damage was done once reunited.
After 7-1/2 months, due to delays made by the prosecution, which caused more court dates, including an appeal for funds for expert witnesses, the case was dismissed. The judge, in tears, apologized to the Parker’s for “being thrust into this nightmare”, as he dismissed the case.
The Parker’s are trying to re-establish their lives. After the 7-1/2 months of emotional, physical, and psychological torment, along with the nearly $50,000.00 in lawyer fees, they need help to do this.
