The Lovely Harvey and The Boy had their meeting with the State's Attorney and Victim's Advocate today. What follows is what Harvey related to me.
The Victim's Advocate did not show up.
The arresting deputy and several other deputies who've been involved with The Boy's escapes were present. They all said hello to The Boy by name and asked how I was holding up. I'm touched they cared enough to ask!
The Boy was adamant that he wanted his daddy back and that my being gone was stupid.
Harvey had to explain, more than once to them, how his disability worked and managed to catch them in the overly focused questions by demanding context be applied to the answers.
For example: is he ever afraid of me? Yes. When? At Halloween, because of scary masks.
They both demanded that the no-contact be lifted.
They both demanded that since there's nothing to see here, why don't we just end it now?
The State's Attorney said that to get the no-contact removed they'd have to talk to the judge take that "everything is abuse" domestic abuse class and then the judge would consider it. Oh, by the way the presiding judge is on vacation for a week.
We found out that if nothing is filed or changes, the no-contact comes off at the end of 30 days.
She got the impression that they were going to run out the clock, because they can.
