A BITTER custody battle has led a judge to sentence three children to serve their teen years in jail after they refused to have lunch with their father.
The kids, Liam, Roee, and Natalie, aged 15, 10 and 9 respectively, were ordered by the Oakland County Courthouse in Detroit to spend quality time with their dad after their parents’ relationship went pear-shaped.
But when the children refused, a furious judge locked them up and threw away the key, comparing the situation to “Charlie Manson’s cult” and promising not to let them out until they graduate.
In a court transcript obtained by FOX2 regarding supervised parenting time between parents Maya Eibschitz-Tsimhoni and Omer Tsimhoni on June 24, 15-year-old Liam Tsimhoni attempts to explain to Judge Lisa Gorcyca the decisions behind why he and his siblings declined the lunch date.
“I do not apologise for not talking to him because I have a reason for that and that’s because he’s violent and … I saw him hit my mum and I’m not gonna talk to him,” Liam said.
But Judge Gorcyca wouldn’t have it, claiming the kids had been “brainwashed” and found the three in contempt of court.
Mr Tsimhoni later told The Observer that in 2008, he took up a position with GM in his birth home, Israel, but Mrs Tsimhoni “decided not to come. Then she filed for divorce and stopped letting me see the kids or speak to the kids. After some months there was a reconciliation.
“She moved to Israel, we moved all of our belongings here and then one day she suddenly disappeared and took the kids.
“Next I heard from her she was in Michigan — not where we had lived, in Ann Arbor, but in Oakland County. That’s when the divorce proceedings began.”
The pair received joint legal custody but the children have resisted contact with their father ever since.
“I ordered you to have a healthy relationship with your father,” said Judge Gorcyca.
“I witnessed your mother at 11:30 tell you very impassionedly that she wants you to talk to your dad, that he loves you, that he’s not gonna hurt you, that he’s not gonna hurt her.
“You are a defiant, contemptuous young man … I’m ordering you to Children’s Village.”
Liam responded, “I didn’t do anything wrong”.
“No, you did,” continued Judge Gorcyca.
“I ordered you to talk to your father. You choose not to talk to your father. You defied a direct court order. It’s direct contempt so I’m finding you guilty of civil contempt.”
Baffled by the judge’s decision, Liam said: “How come? I thought there were was rules for like not, you know, not hitting someone, why am I going to the …”
Judge Gorcyca intervened.
“I will say this again and apparently you’re supposed to have a high IQ, which I’m doubting right now because of the way you act, you’re very defiant, you have no manners.”
Judge Corcyca added Mr Tsimhoni had never been charged or convicted of a crime, had no personal protection orders against him, and he had built stable and loving relationships in the community, his extended family and his workplace. It was his right, she believed, that he build a relationship with his children.
“You, young man, have got it wrong. I think your father is a great man who has gone through hoops for you to have a relationship with you.”
Judge Corcyca demanded the children remain in detention until they graduated high school, and refused Mrs Tsimhoni and her extended family visiting rights. Mr Tsimhoni, a therapist and a lawyer were given visiting privileges.
“You have bought yourself going to the bathroom in public,” Judge Corcyca said.
“When you can follow the court’s direct order and have a normal, healthy relationship with your father I would review this.
“It might be one day, it might be three years. It might be ‘til you’re 18.
“You’re so messed up right now … one day you’re going to apologise to your dad.”
Roughly 1500 kids are tied up or locked down every day by school officials in the United States.
At least 500 students are locked up in some form of solitary confinement every day, whether it be a padded room, a closet or a duffel bag. In many cases, parents are rarely notified when such methods are used.
On any given day when school is in session, kids who “act up” in class are pinned facedown on the floor, locked in dark closets, tied up with straps, bungee cords and duct tape, handcuffed, leg shackled, tasered or otherwise restrained, immobilized or placed in solitary confinement in order to bring them under “control.”
