The great aunt of kidnapped sisters Tionda and Diamond Bradley is advently searching for her nieces, meanwhile her daughter lost custody of her two sons because of her choices to practice extended breast feeding and questioned the safety of vaccinations. Valencia Howard resides in North Carolina and recently lost custody of her sons because the Judge sided with the in laws of the husband. Valencia could not afford an attorney and was totally punished by the judge. Valencia doesn't have a criminal record, do not use any drugs, alcohol or tobacco. The estranged husband is a school teacher and had previously removed the older son for three weeks in March 2008. During the seperation, the child was given back to the mother, however during the course of the hearing, the judge removed both children from the care of the mother and granted temporary custody to the father. Valencia Howard was given the first, second, and forth weekend for visitations with her sons. During the six month period, Valencia was required and subjected to a mental evaluation, ordered to get a job, and to provide milk to the husband at his request. In the meantime, Valencia sent a letter to the Judicial Standards Commission in hopes of getting them to review the abusiveness of Judge Camille Banks-Payne. Recently, a permanent custody hearing was held and Judge Banks-Payne further penalized Mrs. Howard for not showing proof of employment and the results of the mental evaluation. Instead of the judge considering the recommendations of the Guardian Ad Litem, the judge stripped these children away from a "fit" mother and granted her one weekly visit at a safety center with supervised visitation. I find as a mother that this judge either knows this family and is abusing her power against my daughter. I could see this happening to an unfit parent with a criminal record, but to personally impose such a punishment on an innocent mother should be closely looked at. Not only did she snatch the children, but she ordered me, the grandmother not to talk or visit my own grandchildren for no stated reason.
I believe that justice is not served and someone needs to investigate the relationship between this judge and her affiliations with this family. All court records are public knowledge and if anyone can do anything please do it now.

I must mention that not all Judges are for the best interest of the children when it comes to custody issues. One Judge that deserves a thank you and a stand ovation for her fairness is Judge Denise Hartsfield. During an earlier hearing, Judge Hartsfield stated" there is no way I am going to remove those children from their mom, especially the one year old that was still nursing". Eventually, as time came for the hearing, the attorney chose a court date, knowing that Judge Hartsfield wouldn't be hearing the case and they knew she was fair. When this case was heard before, the best interest of the children was, in my opinion,thrown out of the window. I can't help but wonder why would Judge Hartsfield decide that it was in the best interest of the children to be with the mother, then another less experienced Judge rule against a mother that is loving, caring, and nurtures her children unlike many mothers her age and older. I guess it goes to show that a "fit" parent doesn't mean anything to some judges. What made Judge Hartsfields' decision less powerful than that of the other judge? Or is that to say, one judge doesn't respect the professional rulings of another? Either way, I am really grateful that North Carolina is blessed to have a Judge like Judge Denise Hartsfield that is fair, honest, and cares about the parents without any bias. Most of all, she cared about the overall well being of both children involved.

THANK YOU JUDGE HARTSFIELD FOR BEING A JUDGE THAT MANY YOUNG WOMEN CAN BE HONORED TO FOLLOW AS A ROLE MODEL.

Once again a woman is oppressed by another man. Not to mention that he is a black man claiming to love Jesus, yet strips young children away from their mother. The attorney is a previous judge and he has influence as a lawyer to move through the system to help oppress a mother that has done nothing wrong to deserve this treatment. Wow, living in Nowhere Carolina has proven to be still to this day a slavery mentally driven state that sucks in dumb black men into thinking that they are to take over the role of bringing up the children without a woman. At the same time, sexually sleep around and have the failed courts to give them what they want. I have seen more self pride in gay men in the northern states. To walk down the roads here one can smell the lingering stinch of slavery and now they(men) are again seperating from the black woman. Well, honestly, I hate that this woman ever married a so called" black man", I pray she keeps her head up and allow GOD to take control of this evil situation. I can now see why some blacks should have remained in slavery. Free some of them, they hang chains around their necks to represent bondage, little than they know, they are showing that they were never mentally free. The black women,not all, are so desperate just to say they have a man; put up with cheating and even they too are under the "yassa maser", mentality. Ever noticed how many times a black person will say excuse me to a white person? Maybe seperating the black families in the south will give them their revenge they have always held against those of the north. I am not shocked at this woman's ordeal, I am just in disbelief that the legal system allows attorneys to walk over and continue to oppress her. As for those black judges that think they are so above by sitting on a judges bench, GOD will judge you too. To the woman, keep your head up and don't allow nothing this world does change who you are. It may seem the devils are winning, it is not over yet. When GOD does step in, I feel sorry for those that thought HE was blessing them and was waiting for them to correct or change their ways. He will bless those that bless this woman and curse those that curse or cursed her. Hard to believe that this strip is called the bible belt of america. They will burst hell wide open.

Judge Banks Payne did the same thing to me.

My ex-husband is and abusive Arab male who threatened to abduct my daughter when she was 1. Banks Payne separated us from each other while my daughter was still nursing. She has no regard for females or children. She has subjected my daughter to an amazing ammount of cruelty at the hand of her father despite my attempts as her mother to safe her.

Her father is a crminal and was red flagged by the FBI before I even knew him. He has done many number of criminal things but evades the law with lawyer Micheal Grace. He was bribing officials for years before I left him.

He has threatened t kill me numerous times. He said if I got the house he would burn me in it. If I got our business he would bankrupt it. He has hidden assets overseas. He launders money and does multiple schemes such as insurance fraud and mortgage fraud. He cooks the books of the business, his partners, vendors, customers, competitors and lease managers all knew.

He does drugs and is violent. He has overlapped multiple marriages. He will surely gain full custody at the hearing because I ran away from him with my daughter one night after a horrible fight where he was violently demanding me and my daughter go to his home country to literally be his parents servants in Egypt. He had already obtained Egyptian passports and citizenships for us despite my refusal.

We have a hearing in less than 10 days and Banks Payne was selected by his lawyer Jnoe Gatto because of how she treats mothers. She is herself a mother from what I hear.

As we all know might makes right & money greases the wheels. In Forsyth County on cannot be promised a fair trial. It is systemic. Judge Banks Payne should be disbarred. She was clearly the wrong person for the job. The best solution along with disbarment is for her to take her own medicine. She should be subjected to what she does to women in her courtroom. Retribution cannot come soon enough.

She should be disbarred and it is something that should be investigated. Make sure you send a letter to the Commission Standards Committee and she will personally take over your case to make sure no one will ever rule over her. She really have something against any woman that comes into her court. I pray that one day her husband don't meet a fine woman and leave her. She will be crushed and stripped like she does other women. They are totally running away with the fathers rights thing, they are actually changing the plan of GOD and they all will have to face him one day. Keep your head up and don't give up. Eventually enough people will catch on to this injustice and come together and get her and the others out of the courts.

Judge Denise Hartsfeld is the worst judge out there. She is far from being fair. She does not do what is best for anyone expet the criminal. She continues to give people second, third and fourth chances. Then another judge has to come after her and clean up the mess she has made. I have a case with her. It is in the best interest of my foster children not to go back home to their mother. She doesnt want them. She hasnt seen them in months. She does love her kids-but love doesnt put food on the table or keep clothes on their backs. Judge Hartsfeld keeps giving her chance after chance after chance. The kids have been in care for 2 years and mom still hasnt dont ONE THING that social services has asker her to do. HOW MANY MORE CHANCES CAN SHE BE GIVEN? Judge Hartsfield feels bad for the birth mother becasue of the things she is going through. WEll YOU KNOW WHAT--everyone has choices and you must live with the choices you make. SO if you decide that you are going to drop out of school and have babies you should choose to take care of them or give them to someone who will. Children do not choose their parents and should not be subjected to crap just becasue of their parents choices. LETS ALL DO WHAT IS IN THE BEST INTEREST OF THE CHILDREN PLEASE!!!!!

Judge Banks-Payne acts like a TV judge. I asked for a 50c but I got judged on what Judge Banks-Payne believed about me. It seems that the judge did not consider how I had been admittedly and repeatedly harassed by the defendant. The defendant acted out terribly in the courtroom but somehow the judge overlooked all of that and denied the order. I also don't believe the judge should be presiding over domestic violent cases. I am glad to have found this site to voice what I experienced from Judge Banks-Payne.

I think with a petition against some of the judicial wrong doings, this can cease. I am sure there are many that can plainly see how favors are being given to certain attorneys and this is something that must be stopped. With enough signatures, that may bring media attention to the corruptness being done in this court. Maybe we should send letters to our Congress Persons to bring attention to this. Post your ideals people, this has to stop and stop NOW!

I want r.howard and his attorney gary tash to know that the evil you are doing is seen by the ALMIGHTY GOD in HEAVEN. Taking her children and using your legal powers to do so, is no match for the Power of GOD. Putting their mother in jail because you want to be paid child support is the only way you think you can continue to oppress her. V. Howard still holds her faith in JEHOVAH GOD and your evil deeds against her will not break her trust in the LORD. Those children will one day read all about how their father hated their mother for no real reason and EVERY LIE YOU TOLD. It appears that you are prospering in your evilness, but remember that your wealth cannot buy you a place in the KINGDOM OF THE ALMIGHTY GOD. When she had the children, she allowed you to pick the children up daily because she felt it in the best interest of the children to see their father. Now that you have custody, you use everything from false sex abuse allegations to putting her in jail. Thus said the Lord "Mercy to those that have shown mercy". When she had the children, you only paid two hundred dollars over a three month period to help support the children. Yet, you oppress her to pay $800.00 on a $1200 income. I kinda feel sorry for you because you are such a foolish man. That lawyer Gary Tash don't care about anything but making money from you to feed his family. He as an attorney should do what is just and right in the eyes of GOD. Yet, he lied about the child support amount paid and when he found that you had lied about the amount, still tried to justify his case. GOD SEES ALL and we are keeping our faith in JESUS. GOD IS STILL SITTING ON THE THRONE. You spreading lies about her and soon anyone you have lied to will know the truth. Those boys will grow up on day and they will read what I have put in cyberspace for them to investigate the truth for themselves. FOR GOD SO LOVED VALENCIA THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON, VALENCIA BELIEVING ON HIM SHALL NOT PERISH, BUT SHALL HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE. I thank the LORD for being in control over all things and I thank him for never leaving or forsaking their mother. Personally, I think it's a real shame for anyone to call themselves a man, but behave like the opposite sex. Wow, nothing is new under the sun. THIS TOO SHALL PASS!

Reg Howard is the biggest demon I have ever known. He is so dirty to the mother of their children. His greed is what may cause his very soul to rot in hell. His income is maybe $4000.00 per month and he and his lawyer GARY TASH want to see this woman homeless, poor, and in jail. The devil is a liar and whatever pit dug for this woman; they may fall into that very pit. Reg goes around lying on this woman all because he was unhappy most of his childhood life. I wish this woman had known better to marry such an evil person. I guess the Wheat must grow with the tares! My prayers are with the childrens' mother. I know she will not just go away and give up on regaining her children back. How can he sit up in the Sabbath Day Adventist church and even bow his head to pray, pretend that is? I hope those boys grow up and see everything Reggie tried to use against their mom. I imagine him and his cynister lawyer don't believe in reaping what has been sown. If any woman knows this man, please stay far away from him because he is a very evil man. He is parading those boys around in church and other places thinking he is doing something, when most of the people don't like him at all. He puts that ugly smile on facebook and act like he is such a good boy, he is only a deceiver just like the devil. God has his timing and way of dealing with evil. That lawyer Gary Tash is known for destroying mother and children relationships. Rather than be fair he even fights tooth and nails to hurt mothers. Those children will be adults one day and I would not want to explain why I treated their mom in such a cruel, evil, nasty, and unchristian manner.

So called GARY TASH the child custody attorney in Winston Salem and Regrick Howard are at it again. GARY TASH will leave a legacy of DESTROYING CHILDREN by Deceitfully taking children from their mothers and charging overbearing attorney's fees to futher his family's wealth. GOD SEES ALL THE WRONGDOING AND HE WILL PUT A STOP TO ALL EVIL. TASH TAKES A PERSONAL WAR AGAINST ANY WOMAN THAT STAND UP AGAINST HIM. He put falsehoods in court orders and uses his influence to get them set into law. THE LORD SAID TO USE FAIRNESS IN ALL AFFAIRS AND WHEN TASH AND HOWARD GROWS OLD, living in some run down nursing home, YOU WILL REMEMBER ALL YOU HAVE DONE UNJUSTLY TO INNOCENT PEOPLE AND THEIR CHILDREN. YOU CAN'T TAKE ONE CENT OF YOUR BLOOD MONEY WITH YOU IN YOUR GRAVE. ALL INNOCENT CHILDREN BELONG TO GOD AND HE WILL NOT TURN A DEAF EAR TO WHAT YOU HAVE DONE. GOD IS TURNING ALL THINGS AROUND AND IT IS HE THAT YOU SHOULD PRAY HIS WRATH BE SWIFT, IT SURE WILL BE JUST.

Please contact the Commissions to report this. I wonder who what the attorney representing you ex? Please file an official complaint against her, she seems to hate woman to their core. Justice will catch up with her if enough people file true reports on her. Also, have your attorney to advise you, I know someone will listen. Maybe the news should hear about her.

Women. Let's join together. Protest, campaign.
Make sure she isn't reelected.

We can go to her church, where she went to school, go to her "country club" campaign in her neighborhood, in front of the courthouse..let local tv station be there.

Let everyone else in the county know what she does and get her fired, investigated, kicked off the bench & publically humiliated.

Talk to your friends, church leaders, familys, neighbors, etc.
Email me [email protected]
Let's do it right. Democratic style. This is our city, our courthouse, we are the people. We have to fix it.

I will be starting a petition soon and please make sure that anyone that have experienced the same or similar situations with judge camille banks-payne must adhere to the following. 1. Must have court documentations to support your claim. 2. Any witnesses in court during the proceedings. 3. Must state only facts that can be proven to avoid any legal prosecutions for making false claims. 4. Be willing to testify if called by the proper governing authorities. Please note that anyone will be invited to sign the petition, but persons that were harmed by her actions will need to be determined to taking the proper steps that may lead to her removal from the bench.

The courts have been this way for years. ive done time for the same charge twice, was locked up last march,13, for failure to appear. i sat in jail for 3 days, made 1000 bond, went to court and sure enough, i WAS in court. Now mind you, my court date that they sat i missed was 12/16/10. The warrent was sent out in feb.2010. I didnt get my money back, which was cool considering it was a child support case, but when i asked in court, why was i locked up for a failure to appear, the judge, DA everyone just looked around, and said nothing. Now, i have done alot in my past, but the key word is PAST!!!!! Judges, there are some of use who have changed our ways. You cant always judge a person by their past, not me anyway!!! Jdges remember, your children WILL grow up one day and MY child might just be the one judging yours! Remember, what goes around, comes around! pray for out system!
