This seems to get more interesting as it goes along. I know I appreciate hearing all this, knowing I am going up against them. What's bad is knowing they are involved with our children, and that's who is suffering. They will have to answer for it one day by a person bigger then any of us. May God bless them for hurting so many families. I wonder if this is how they would want someone to treat their case if it involved one of their own. I am so DISGUSTED!!!!!!!!!

I know a lawyer right now who represented a couple then turned around and represented her against him
in a divorce. That is a conflict of interrest.
The thing is he thinks every one is stupid. I have a really good attorney and he called him a rich attorney. well now he is in a sling. when you make judgement it comes back around. I have a lot of respect for most attorneys. some are useless.

My niece talked with her attorney Tues.They are trying now to get this out of Jacksons court I will keep you posted. As far as attorneys for the most part I would say about 25% honest about 75% dishonest and crooked they have no one to answer to All judges have to be attorney's too now, major mistake. Most cases in court doesn't take a law degree just plain honesty, no favors, and common sense.

My son got into trouble once and I believe Mr. Mitchell and Judge Benningfield were extremely professional, strict and very fair. They need to be tough on kids (and parents alike when necessary) and I think they did a great job. My son got in worse trouble at home than he did in court but they scared him to death (intimidation) so it all worked out for the good!***There has to be more to your story.

Teenagersmom, I wondered what was going on when I read the first comment. It is relief to know that their are a few good judges left. What we are talking about is not being tough on kids that have got into trouble, were talking about a judge that is bad example for the children he judges. We are also talking about favors beyond tearing up a traffic ticket. Hope your son is doing good now.

Went to court on the 18th no changes made the grandparents complaint this time was, if my niece is going to be gone more than 4 hours she has to ask the grandparents if they want to babysit on the mothers visitation days. Well guess what she has already ask them today so she could work and they said no only because it was not the kid they want.
The change of court was not herd this day. will keep posting.

I am sorry if you were really that upstanding you would not know drug addicts and child abusers. I think Dickson County should be harder on these awful parents that don't take care of their own children and then want to cry about what a great person they are. The fact remains if you were a decent parent you would have never lost your child. Stay off drugs and for havens sake NO MORE CHILDREN
I don't understand your anger...I believe this parent is a good person and has just been a victim of the system...not all parents that have "out of hand" children are bad parents and they aren't all on drugs. Some parents are treated like criminals because of their children and because the way the laws are.

The worse thing this country ever did was to take the rights of parents to spank their children. "Spare the rod and spoil the child." Don't blame the parents, blame the system. They want to put labels on children, saying they are A.D.D. or ADHD...bullcrap, the children are just being kids and kids are hyper by nature.

I don't have any small children, when mine were young I never had to spank them either, but I knew many children that sure needed one and when they did get a spanking, it didn't kill them and they grew up to be great people. Those times need to come back before all the children are distroyed by the system.

Sorry you do not agree, but I think the large problem is BLAMING "The System" how long will people play victim instead of taking care of their problems? I have never spanked and never will, but I will not blame "The System"

I'd go with Dale Quillen's associate. I'd stay away from all lawyers in the Hickman and Dickson area.

You must have been born there in order to stand up for a town like that. It's dumb rednecks like you that need to stay in the backwoods of White Bluff, TN. Your probably a drug addict yourself and just pretend your not and who are you to say anything about a woman having kids. You need to get an education and worry about the white trash that's coming from your house. Please don't breed no more ignorance into our society I would hate to think that you have a child and it would grow up anything like you or your neighbors you hypocritical hillbilly.

Parent are you still out there its been a long time. We are now in March of 2011 the final court hearing in Juvenile court will be in April. The Grandparents have returned two of the children the two they didnt want to start with and are still fighting over the one. It has took now over a year just to get this point but wouldnt you think if you were unfit for one you would certaintly be unfit for two. My niece will appeal on, in the mean time the children are a year older and missing out on so much precious time at home. I dont know about a win in April but surely in the next court they will see how dumb all this sounds.
I cant imagine that their are two judges that this messed up.

Wow there are definitely strong emotions and I do feel for the parents. There is a lot of guaranteed money when children of the "At risk youth industry" are placed out of their parent's custody. The court cries out there is no extended family...and when their is they put them through everything. I have worked in that industry almost 20 years and their is definitely corruption in the system and there are some truly bad parenting going on, but not just here. Fight for your child maam and due diligence. As far as the Jacksons power in dickson co. that is dead, the money is about gone becomes of their corrupted ways and assumed power. Yes their family has open some door but it never last because of greed and misuse of funds. That can only happen if the people let it happen...should have been taken care of a long time of ago. And there are some good Jackson family members...so it is unfair to say that the whole family is corrupt.
Mr James its the good parents whose children get trapped in bad judgement speak about what you know. It is very deep...there are young girls walking around today as grown women who have been violated severely by authority figures in the juvenile system and covered by judges. Your comemnts give the innocent no hope I cant imagine how you would put one of these innocent down.

Loving the people, Thanks for the comment and your right all the Jacksons are not bad but the percentage is high you just automatically include all of them. Realizing the Jacksons have lost power when Doug lost his seat in the Senate kinda puts Andy with no protection. But like you said the people should have stopped this along time ago he is an elected official.
Strange you say good parents get trapped because I have a parent now that has lost her children has no criminal record, has now had 4 drug test to include a hair follicle and all have been negative she is now on her fourth psych eval due to the judge wont accept any of them but doesnt seem to know what he does want. I have contacted channel 4 news I-Team and they are looking for anyone that will tell their story about juvenile court in Dickson County. Please if you have a story either way, contact me thru e-mail and I will foward
it on to them. Parent We Need Your Help Now, we may have somebody that can help out.
