Final Order in Merrianne’s CPS Case

Merrianne_Jessop_Final_Order_in_Texas_custody_case_7-23-2009

The court finds that the appointment of a parent or both parents as managing conservator would not be in the best interest of the child MERRIANNE JESSOP because the appointment would significantly impair the child’s physical safety or emotional development.

  1. Mad Bill posted this earlier on his “blog”

    I’m just learning the facts about Merrianne’s emancipation. The fact is, she’s still a slave on barbie’s plantation.

    So many strings have been attached to her, the only thing she is “Free” from are people bitching at barbie for keeping her in captivity.

    Merrianne isn’t even free to thank anyone for writing her kind words. She’s not free to visit the Ranch, or to see anyone but immediate family. The gestapo sits outside Naomi’s house, and watches their every move, in and out. She cannot gto onto the internet, and she cannot make telephone calls.

    If she does, barbie has “Reserved the right” to take her back into foster care, no reason needed.

    I have strongly urged that Merril and Barbara Jessop continue with their Demand to have a Jury trial to decide the custody issue of their daughter. Obviously, Merrianne is still a pawn of the court, and is not “Non-suited” as barbie claims she is.

    As usual Bill makes it up as he goes along, just to stir the pot. The order does not have the restrictions Bill claims.

    Bill also has no understanding of the law whatsoever. No one claimed Merrianne was nonsuited. This is a final order. It is a disposition of the case, not a nonsuit. The parties agreed to it — see Barbara and Merril’s signatures on the order? Why do you think they agreed to the order in lieu of taking this to trial? Because this is the best they could do, and they should be thankful for not having their parental rights terminated.

  2. According to this order, Barbara and Merril waived their right to a trial. They do have to provide child support and insurance for Merrianne.
    By the way FLDS TEXAS thanks for the putting the order up.

  3. Mudpucky is fulla what makes the grass grow green in Texas. Custody has been decided, including child support from each (ahem) parent. Gestapo sits outside my neighbor’s house? Why is that idiot lying?

  4. Cause he can GrannyToad? LOL Maybe he just HATES CPS so much he is willing to hurt little girls by lying.

  5. tee-hee–Merrianne can’t even write poor ole’ warren a letter–that’s a good thing!!!

  6. I noticed CASA didn’t sign this. Any thoughts?

  7. Medveckey got it wrong again for the 10th time? 20th time?? With his internal flds sourtces you would think he could obtain and post the documents on his site. My bet is that he will not show up in Utah for the UEP rally outside the courthouse. Just more BS.

  8. Chemist, He has no inside sources!! He makes up as he goes along.

  9. If he had any sources besides the voices in his addled brain he would have seen the order and known what it said.

  10. deputy dog and FLDS TEXAS: ROFL!! Almost got diet pepsi all over my keyboard and monitor screen. BM is like Hugh M; they both have an exaggerated sense of their power and influence in the flds/polygamy issues/

  11. Barbara Jessop is living in San Antonio and Merril Jessop is four hours away, at the ranch.

    A rift in the lute?

  12. She’s probably only living in San Antonio until the lease is up on the place.

  13. Oh geez, it gets worse —

    Mad Bill also said this:

    I completely agree Riki, and if Merrianne were my daughter, she would be enjoying her summer vacation on the Ranch with her friends and family. However, Barbara isn’t ready to take that chance. She knows barbie is a lunatic as do we all, and will bow to the queens wishes; until the trial for Merrianne’s custody in September.

    The demand has never been withindrawn, and with conditions put on Merrianne by barbie, the question is no longer moot. If barbie doesn’t set a date for trial, Barbara wins by default.

    8. Bill on July 25th, 2009 at 12:58 pm

    Merrianne’s custody trial will be in September? The demand for a jury trial has never been withdrawn? If Walthers doesn’t set a date, Barbara wins by default?

    THIS IS A FINAL ORDER, BILL. THE CASE IS OVER. IT WAS AN AGREED ORDER, MERRIL AND BARBARA SIGNED IT AND AGREED TO IT. THIS ORDER CANNOT BE CHANGED UNLESS THERE IS A MATERIAL CHANGE IN CIRCUMSTANCE THAT PUTS MERIANNE’S HEALTH OR DEVELOPMENT AT RISK. MERRIL AND BARBARA LOST CUSTODY OF THEIR CHILD, MERRIL DOES NOT EVEN HAVE A RIGHT TO VISIT HER AND BARBARA CAN ONLY VISIT HER UNDER SUPERVISED CONDITIONS — THE PARENTS AGREED TO THAT BECAUSE IT IS BETTER THAN HAVING THEIR RIGHTS TERMINATED.

  14. Bigger font needed FT, that is some thick bonehead you are trying to penetrate!

  15. does the fact that merril has been DEEMED to be merrianne’s father strenghten the case against him for performing an underage marriage or is it just for housekeeping measures in denying him access to his daughter?

    oh and i think that mudpukey is an overzealous hater of the cps much more than he is a supporter of flds. shoot, he even thought that tony alamo would get off and look what happened to him.

  16. tee-hee–that mad bill is very entertaining–indee!!!

    You know, reading Carolyn’s book gave me the impression that she was always gone during the week and just at home on the week-ends. It didn’t seem as if she was really interested in “being mommy” and personally, I think she loved not living in the house during the week with all the other wives and demands of taking care of her kids and theirs. I think the same reasons could apply here.

    Sure the lease may not be up, but if she threw such a fit when Carolyn was there and the other wives, what kind of fit do you think she’s throwing since Merril has married so many more?

    I think she enjoys being away from it all, likes having Merril to herself when he comes to visit. She seemed to be such a trouble maker and abusive towards the children, I can’t imagine any of those women want her in that house on the ranch trying to mother their children. And I wouldn’t be surprised if they didn’t make that very clear as Carolyn and Cathleen did.

    Just the impression I got from the book. 🙂

  18. Bill M is like Perez Hilton.

    Ugly, and void of truth, so he needs to make it up in sensational lies.

    He needs Adam Sandler to visit him and give him some “High Quality H2’0.

    Because its become a cesspool over there!

  19. MG

    Great insight. I also read the book, I also agree Barbara cant handle her husbands odd brood, or YFZ in general for that matter.

    She doesnt seem like the 24-7-365 religio-prison compound type to me.

    After two long years “Compound Fever” sets in bad!

  20. Some observations:

    It is grounds for appeal that an order does not provide SOME visitation for a parent (even if it’s just 2 hours once per month supervised.) Provisions such as “as agreed upon by the parties” don’t cut it. It’s not a very big deal because the remedy on appeal is to send the order back for the court to order specific periods of visitation.

    CASA apparently wasn’t dismissed as guardian ad litem until this order was signed. They should have signed the order. Perhaps they waived or perhaps it was overlooked by the Judge. This is only a problem if CASA decided to appeal, which I highly doubt they will.

    It’s a pretty restrictive order with very limited access for Barbara and none for Merrill (like Merrill really gives a crap!)

    I doubt anyone will appeal this order so unless a notice of appeal or motion for new trial is filed by August 23rd, it will be a done deal.

  21. Oh, and as FLDS Texas pointed out, Bill M is once again full of crap. There is no case for there to be a trial. The door is still open to a potential modification in the future, but so long as Barbara Walther is judge that will be a major uphill battle.

  22. I certainly don’t see Barbara getting herself and her brood up at 5:30 every morning for prayers and gardening time, as Oprah’s ridiculous coverage showed.

    It seems like all work and very little (if any) playtime and she is not going to go for that at all.

    I think we should all send her some “breadsticks”.

    Didn’t she have Carolyn and Cathleen make hundreds of them for their trip to the zoo?

  23. I went back over the signatures, there was NO PLACE on the document for CASA representative to sign off. (guardian ad litem)

  24. Ron

    Bull Manure’s posts have become the laughing stock. He deletes all dissenting posts, so there is no discussion, only FLDS and Alamo fur grooming.

    The FLDS deserve him. But unlike Lester, they haven’t come out and disowned him as yet. Lester made the mistake of “angling for position” and was soundly pounded by some flds last year.

    Bill is just water boy, but he adds koolaide, even though he has no clue to what flavor they like!

    IRT the plan, its my understanding that this was signed off on by all parties? IOW, both merril and Babs signed off and its a done deal, and the only one complaining about the terms (that I have heard) is Bill and Chris Hansen (on theplurallife).

    LOL they thought that the Jessops were just all restored back to the abusing past? NO NO NO

  25. It seems like a good deal all around. Merrianne is with family, the parents didn’t have their parent child relationship severed by the state, the state is convinced that merrianne is safe until 18, emancipation, or marriage in court.

  26. The great part about it is, Merril and Barbara are both on the hook for child support and health insurance, Merril cannot visit nor can she communicate with Warren, and Babs gets only two hours supervised visitation.

    And they pay the child support DIRECTLY to the TX AG office.

    Once Merril is in prison, he will have to work a double shift just to cut the nut.

  27. CASA is not required to sign an agreed order. They may sign but they are not required to sign. CASA isn’t a party. The child had a legal representative sign on her behalf.

    My guess is CASA did not sign the order because they did not agree that the order was in the child’s best interests.

  28. Babs gets only two hours supervised visitation.
    ==============================================
    I read the order and it seems like visitation is to be settled, hopefully amicably, between Naomi and Barbara.
    ==============================================
    The great part about it is, Merril and Barbara are both on the hook for child support and health insurance.
    ==============================================
    Nothing wrong with that. She is, after all their daughter.

  29. Carolyn still has 6 kids at home, so Merril should be paying her child support also.

  30. Merril should pay child support to Carolyn. His kids.
    Glad the child support for her is in the works. The order in regards to Merrianne should help Carolyn’s case. Maybe he has to open up his books etc. to assess him of what he has to pay. wonder why that was not done in Merrianne’s case.

  31. Carolyn still has 6 kids at home, so Merril should be paying her child support also.
    ==========================================================
    I’m surprised he’s not. I’m from Washington state and as soon as the couple separates the state automatically takes over. All it takes is one month on welfare for the state to kick in child support enforcement or dissolution of marriage signed in court for the same to happen. If I remember right Carolyn has retained Natalie Malonis to start exploring child support options. Since Merril doesn’t own property and probably is on SSI she will more then likely get the state minimum per child.

  32. I live in Washington State too, and the state doesn’t always get involved. My daughter gets child support from her son’s father and not from her daughter’s father. She and her daughter’s father have split their time with my granddaughter 50/50 and my daughter feels that neither should have to pay the other child support. They take turns doing things like buying new clothes or getting the tax credit for her. She has recieved food stamps from time to time, and medical assistance for the children, but she doesn’t get any money from the state, so maybe that’s why they don’t feel the need to get involved. But you are correct, in the average separation/divorce there is an automatic support payment set for the non-custodial parent of the child in most cases.

    As for the Merril and Carolyn support case; from what I understand Carolyn tried to get a support order but Merril stonewalled about his finances and she didn’t have the resources to figure out his income and assets. So he managed to simply ignore his responsibility to his children all these years.

  33. Merril’s child support will be calculated according to his available net resources, irrespective of the form and irrespective of who holds title. Someone is able to pay Goldstein and other attorneys to represent Merril — whatever amount that comes to, that’s an available monthly resource. He has a home, car, pays utilities, food, he’s the principle or owner of several going concerns, he’s a trust beneficiary of the UEP and the Texas Trust (if it exists), he has owned and run hotels and construction companies so he has earning potential, and he paid a $100,000 cash bond. All of those things are available resources on which to calculate child support. I think that’s a bit more than minimum wage.

  34. Well, if Natalie Malonis is Carolyn Jessop’s attorney, Merril’s true assets will be smoked out. I have the greatest admiration for Malonis and if I ever needed a lawyer in Texas, I’d call her.

  35. Open Discussion 8 is closed so I’ll post this here, even though it is slightly off topic. Check out Blue’s blog for the latest in Boots’ attempt to visit the gravesite of the child who died on the ranch. (I can’t remember his name…) Anyway, an attorny for the FLDS sent a letter which Blues has posted. It’s quite informative.

  36. GFNY that name Malonis rings some bells in my memories but I can’t place the role she has played in the past. Did she represent somebody already involved with this FLDS Church fiasco?

  37. She was Theresa Steed’s guardian ad litem.

  38. Or was it Marianne? I can’t remember right now.

  39. Rebeckah, I was just looking at that—very interesting. TBM is on a roll.

    CaJim, you have to remember that Natalie Malonis was an YFZ-raid attorney ad litem, including for one victim of underage ‘marriage’. Her star turn came when she went looking for assets for a trust fund for that girl and deposed Wee Willie and Merril Jessop. I read the transcripts and I think she is a tough interrogator and fast on her feet. (Of course, in one way it was like shooting at cows, since neither Jessop seemed to be playing with a full deck.)

    I like attorneys who go to work loaded for bear. Other than real estate closings I can’t imagine a situation for a lawyer where collegiality is more useful than a killer instinct.

  40. Malonis was the other Teresa’s lawyer. The one married to Raymond when she was 14 or 15.

    By the way, Open Discussion #9 is open, Rebeckah.

  41. Thanks FT. 😀

  42. GFNY I recall that she was the one that got the restraining order against Willie R. Jessop over his interference with her client Teresa (Jeffs) Jessop, Warren S. and Annette Jeffs daughter, Right? Yes, then she conducted the deposition against Half-wit and Dim-wit, Willie couldn’t answer a question and Merril couldn’t stay awake during a question and that’s their Leadership junta, pretty sad. I thought Angela Baskerville was involved in Teresa’s representation?

  43. LOL @ halfwit and dimwit

    Too funny

  44. Angela Baskerville was one of the lawyers for Teresa Jeffs Jessop also. Her name is on some of those court transcripts. LOL Teresa must have been a handful to get an extra lawyer

  45. There was nobody “watching” the only road into the subdivision. There was not one vehicle on the dead-end road. Why did old Mudpucky lie?

  46. Subdivision?

  47. LOL Teresa must have been a handful to get an extra lawyer.
    ==========================================================
    Nah! All the minors was assigned both a guardian Ad Litem and an attorney Ad Litem.

  48. I’m kind of surprised to see posting, Alin. After the “rumor” you so gleefully posted about Blue’s motives for closing his blog being slammed not once but twice (ie, his blog is still open as his personal situation has changed AND he was proven correct in his predicitons as to the outcome of the Alamo trial) I’d think you’d still be in hiding, licking your wounds. I guess spreading lies as rumors doesn’t bother you?

  49. I guess spreading lies as rumors doesn’t bother you?
    =====================================================
    After hearing about 25 underage minors who was, in fact, legal adults being incarcerated despite documentation indicating otherwise, no not at all. Sides I didn’t make it up on my own. I got that from Pharisee. Let’s not get all hypocritical. Where is Flora’s statement that the members of the YFZ is bleeding Arizona when a spokesperson from their office stated that is a falsehood?

  50. After the “rumor” you so gleefully posted about Blue’s motives for closing his blog being slammed not once but twice (ie, his blog is still open as his personal situation has changed AND he was proven correct in his predicitons as to the outcome of the Alamo trial)
    =========================================================
    If you are indicating that I thought Blues closed his blog due to a possible outcome of the Alamo case you are incorrect. To be precise I thought it was due to the suppression of evidence at the YFZ ranch. In fact, I too predicted, though with less then 100 percent certainty, that Tony Alamo would more then likely be convicted.

  51. Where is Flora’s statement that the members of the YFZ is bleeding Arizona when a spokesperson from their office stated that is a falsehood?”

    They said it was “inaccurate”, not the same as a falsehood. Amd It is very good of you to share that you consider lies acceptable. That rather puts your claim that you “never” lie in perspective. It also allows others to know exactly how much weight to give your words.

  52. Just ignore my postings then. I promise you I won’t get upset. As far as spreading lies as rumors, I would prefer, given the option, to spread truth as rumors.

    But, using the scientific method, we come out with a thesis, we weigh the evidence to either support or refute our thesis, then we share our thesis for peer review to either support our refute our thesis.

  53. And just an FYI, I also take what Flora says with a grain of salt. While I do not believe she is a liar, I do believe that she phrases things dramatically and that she has passed off rumors as fact. So I look for corroboration with her claims. Many of them, by the way, HAVE been corroborated. The welfare claim isn’t one that I can see being corroborated OR disproved, so it’s something I’m just going to ignore. Just like your “truthful” comments.

    “Sides I didn’t make it up on my own. I got that from Pharisee.”

    And there-in lies the problem.

    Listen, maybe those 25 women that were being incarcerated (what a joke) should have told the truth the FIRST time they were asked. You know as well as we do, that they were giving false information, false family relationships and their intention was to make it so confusing, it could never be sorted out.

    That is why Barbara gave Merrianne a cell phone and would instruct her on how to behave, when to cry, when to act up?

    They don’t tell the truth. They have generations and generations of an inherent belief they have been taught from birth that they are being persecuted and are not subject to the laws of this land.
    They have raised their children in fear.

    Those children may have been given back (God help them) but I think the ones old enough will know, realize and understand that we were there to help protect and preserve their innocence.

    To stop the abuse.

  55. Just one more FYI; Pharisee and Mr. Mudpucky really aren’t considered credible by thinking human beings. You want to spread their bile, that’s your perogative, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it doesn’t end up getting you banned from the reputable sites. Just a word to the wise, as it were.

  56. Alin relies on Hugh and bill for information regarding flds, cps, TexasBMan, etc. ROFLMAO!!! No wonder alin makes no sense whatsoever..

  57. Listen, maybe those 25 women that were being incarcerated (what a joke) should have told the truth the FIRST time they were asked. You know as well as we do, that they were giving false information, false family…………

    Really? I’m unaware of a single one of the mothers represented by TRLA ever misrepresenting who their children are. If I’m in error please correct me by telling me who.

    ================================================
    So you are not going to tell me which one of the mothers represented by TRLA misrepresented their children?

  60. Subdivision. Well yeah, I’ve been around here a long long time and that was the term when that area out that one road was subdivided.

    *snicker* it’s not one of that kind with houses all alike and a HOA though …

  61. Alin if those women wanted to pretend they were children in order to accompany the children for a while and you beleived them, that is your doing. Take credit for your dumast carp, wouldja.

  62. Alin is just trolling again, Granny. He/she likes to pretend to be all reasonable and then just twists things around and around and around. Personally, I think Alin is FLDS or ex’d FLDS. But then I think a lot of those who pretend to be gentiles are FLDS.

  63. granny toad – what subdivision are you talking about, i’m confused.

  64. So you are not going to tell me which one of the mothers represented by TRLA misrepresented their children?

    No dear, you have to do your own homework if you want to participate. Either read up or flunk out. We’re not going to carry your butt. You can learn about the issues and the facts, or not, and continue to look like the half-wit you appear to be on the subject.

  65. I totally agree anon. Alin did not even know who Rulon Jeffs was when he was mentioned in a recent article. If alin does not care enough to keep herself/himself informed alin should go find a topic and board that really interests herself/himself.

  66. Exactly, I mean why are you on the blog if you do not know whom or what you are talking about. And I’m tired of trying to explain.

    Either your interested or your not.

    Either you do your OWN homework or not.

    When you don’t look deeply into subjects or people that are troubling by actions & deeds, how can you know enough to defend them?

    That’s why we never get anywhere with her and Duane and Hugh. They have no interest in seeing the whole picture , just the portion of the picture they want to see. Which is so incomplete, I can hardly stand to talk about it.

  67. Anon I won’t discuss details here.
