I have had similar experiences with Judge Blanchet where he ruled against keeping protective orders in place for myself and my daughter even after my ex-husband even admited under oath to part of the events that occured when he attacked us. During judge blanchet's judgement rendering, he claimed that what I had said happened could not have happened---even though my ex-husband had previously admitted on the stand that the specific incident the referred to had indeed happened. It is a very long story, one too long for this post. However, I have been fighting for my daughter for more than eight years now. As I read the posts in this forum, I seem to get a little hopeful that maybe others who have experienced horrible things in the justice system have found a way to bring it all to justice. It is so good to hear about the aforementioned case where Blanchet's ruling was overturned. You mentioned that she is suing the senator and others. I wonder if Blanchet will be held accountable; and if so, will other cases be reviewed for abuse of power to make unfair rulings?

I hope that one day we can all have justice for our children. My daughter and I pray every day that I have her. After I have said my part of the prayers, she takes the time to say her own little part. Each time, she asks Jesus to give her back to me completely so she never has to go to her father's house again. Here lately, she has been asking me why we even pray anymore. She says that we have prayed for so long but our prayers have not been answered. She seems like she has just about given up. She has experienced some pretty horrible things---things sexual in nature but cannot be proven with any physical evidence because no one is with her to help her when she has to visit her father. The courts will only say that I have coached her, I am sure. I say this because there have been many incidents I have reported and had witnesses like neighbors or family members or friends that happened to be present. The courts say their testimonies are considered biased. However, when my daughter was very young, I did take her to the ER when I found that she was bleeding in her vaginal area. They examined her and the doctor's report says that it is clear that the child has suffered from sexual abuse. However, when I contacted the sherriff's department, who were already privvy to the situation, they spoke to the doctor and told him to consider that I may just be trying to get custody back from the father. So, the doctor's report says that it is clear that the child has suffered from sexual abuse but it is unclear as to whether the abuse is the result of sexual abuse from the father or if the mother suffers from Munchausen's syndrome by proxy. However, when I found that my daughter was hurt, it was in the presence of two other ladies who worked at the quick mart where my ex and I met for visitation exchanges. There were cameras showing me waiting in the parking lot, him arriving, me taking my daughter from him and walking straight into the quick mart. Per the advice of my attorney, I had started meeting my ex at a neutral location and having third party witnesses look on while I checked my daughter out for bruises and such. So there was actually a lady of no relation or friendship to me who witnessed my daughter's injuries at the same time I did. I had no window of opportunity to inflict this injury to my daughter myself. In fact, the ambulance came and picked us up from there and took us to women's where the doctor examined her. After the doctor spoke to the sherriff and wrote the report as I mentioned before, I saw a psychiatrist who evaluated me and reported that I do not have Munchausen by proxy. So, my question is why the courts would not arrest my ex for child abuse and strip his custodial rights if the doctor's report said it was either sexual abuse from the mother or munchausen on my part, something I was cleared of. If the solution to a problem is either 'A' or 'B', and it is proven that 'B' is not the answer, the only logical conclusion is that 'A' is the solution. Do you know what I mean? It is just so frustrating.
Does anyone really think that real justice will ever be served, or are we fighting an inevitably losing battle? I need some encouragement.

In case it was not obvious as to my error in my previous post, I wanted to address it here. I previously made a post and in the last paragraph, I wrote,

"So, my question is why the courts would not arrest my ex for child abuse and strip his custodial rights if the doctor's report said it was either sexual abuse from the mother or munchausen on my part, something I was cleared of."

I am sure it is quite obvious that I mistyped in the latter part of the sentence and wrote "sexual abuse from the mother or munchausen on my part", actually meaning "sexual abuse from the FATHER or munchausen on my part"

Judge Blanchette made a ruling that my ex gets sole custody. In 2010, he order a Home Study. Nothing came about that. Then he order an evaluation from Dr. Bouillion($3,200) He ignored that report , that stated 7 and 7 joint custody. He listened to my ex on the stand at cross examination. We had plenty of evidence that he was a compulsive liar. Also, the ex and his girlfriend at the time of court Oct 2012, made the court think they were a great family. A week later the girlfriend left him. This judge doesn't think anything is wrong when it comes to fraud regarding SSI. And there is proof it happened. He only wants witnesses that are EXPERTS. Therapist DON'T COUNT as experts in Judge Blanchettes eyes. Its a shame, my children are neglected and abused. They are failing school and malnutrition.

Why does he bother to order evaluations, counseling and home studies if he never listens to the outcome? Court isn't cheap! Seems he intentionally runs up the bills to stick to the parent that isn't getting custody. I hope an end comes to his madness as we all need to pray for his evil soul.

That's a great thought and probably the least if his sins. Start reading the beginning of this thread and the corresponding one in Lafayete. You'll see what the innocent people are up against.

I truly believe Judge Blanchet and Dr. Bouillion take bribes. I was actually told by my ex-husband that I had no hope of winning in court because his father (who is wealthy) could buy him out of anything. He went on to hint to the notion that his father bribed the judge and psychiatrist on the case. It is believable because the judge has ignored facts, testimony, and medical records that show that my ex-husband has abused my child. How do you get justice when it is for sale to the highest bidder?

Not sure you can call these "bribes". Sounds more like "kick backs"...you know...cash in your pocket for doing a favor.

Alot like the OWI program that the FBI busted being run from this same 15th Judicial Circuit. Pay a fee, you can keep your license...and everyone took a cut of the fee.

What are the chances that a kickback fee can alter your custody disputes? You have to see THIS counselor for six months total $8000...(Do you think Blanchette gets a "kick back" from those counseling sessions?)

Harson does the same thing with bail bondsman. If you want outta jail you can only use these approved bondsmen...(the ones who offer the kickback)

You're right, four people so far have plead guilty of participating a BRIBERY scheme. To me, bribery is more like the case of the New Roads mayor you took a BRIBE from a businessman in exchange for a city contract. This Barna/Williams/Crump/Willamson /Curry scheme was actual protocol in the DAs office. If anyone is accepting cash on the side just for doing their job, that sounds like a kick-back to me.

Anyways,
The mechanics of the scheme in Harsons office are not unlike the mechanics of how Blanchet runs his courtroom. And it's impossible to ignore the fact that same people are involved in both circus rings.

My hope was that the investigation in Harson's office would widen into other areas where abuse of power rules. But instead, it seems the scope of that investigation narrowed after they let Harson off scott free.

Excuse me, Mitch,
Williams and Williamson along with Mr Barna Haynes have all played dirty in Blanchette's custody courtroom. Of course they had a little help from the Senators Cravin.

Go re evaluate your own knowledge of these facts. You said that Blanchette was PURE EVIL. Explain yourself. What do you know that I didn't show to you?

Stop trying to hi jack the discussion.
Mayor Tommy Nelson of New Roads is guilty of taking KICK-BACKS for his gargage can cleaning scam.
Harson's employees are pleading guilty to BRIBERY.

It's still GUILTY for abuse of power, if ya ask me.

This same abuse of power is being leveraged very cleverly in Blanchette's office. I think if the Feds took a closer look they'd let Blanchette off scott free just like they did Harson. I think they'd say there was a flaw of oversight by the Judges office and they'll say Blanchette isn't guilty, everyone else is.

That's what happened with Harson.

If anyone has a better scope within reason, let's hear it.

I will never give up. I tell everyone that I come across about this judge. And how biase he is....

Ever since the Feds started investigating the DA's office I hoped that investigation would snare into Blanchette's courtroom.

So far five people have made guilty plea deals with the Feds for participating in a bribery scam around Harson's OWI plea deal.

The first one to plead guilty was Barna Haynes, the wife of the Lafayette city prosecutor, Gary Haynes.

Gary Haynes has history in Blanchettes courtroom. He also has history representing Robert Williamson, in a couple of fraudulent insurance claims. Robert Williamson was Barna's co-conspirator in the DA's bribery scam.

Today, LCG Prosecutor, Gary Haynes, was asked some tough questions.

Why was the senior paralegal aide/supervisor for his office put on paid administrative leave back in May, 2012? That was a month after his wife was put on paid administrative leave from the DA's office. His wife, Barna, was put on administrative leave so that the Feds could investigate the scam without her disruption.

Today we learn that Barna's husband Gary Haynes, the Lafayette City Prosecutor, has had his office manager on paid administrative leave for the last ten months. And there are no provisions in the Lafayette charter to allow administrative pay for more than 60 days.

Nobody will answer why Gary's office manager gets this special treatment.

Check it out:
Robert Williamson, Secret Cajun Man, private investigator.
He is the supposed mastermind behind the District Attorney's OWI \ FBI troubles.

Robert Williamson is a well known scam artist in the 15th circuit due to his long history of fraudulent insurance activity which started in 1989, 25 years ago, same time Harson took office..

Pay attention: Barna Haynes plead guilty to being an OWI player with the "Master Mind" Robert Williamson. Barna's husband, Gary Haynes, is the Lafayette prosecutor. Gary Haynes represented Robert Williamson in one of his fraudulent insurance claims.

Gary Haynes also worked with Robert Williamson in Judge David Blanchette's courtroom. Remember, Robert Willimason, The Secret Cajun Man, is a licensed Private Investigator, and he ain't cheap. Check out the mess of Bradley Griffith vs. Resa Latiolais.

Clearly, Robert Williamson was used in the 15th beyond the OWI racket.
