Connecticut Family Court Hands Children to Stepmother Instead of Real Mother When Millionaire Father Dies

Vicki the stepmother.

William J. ‘Bill’ Grohs and Kelly Smith Grohs had two daughters, Genevieve and Sophia, during their marriage. They lived in a spacious Tudor home in Watertown, CT.

Bill, an insurance broker, ran William J. Grohs Aviation, Inc. out of Oxford Airport. He was worth millions.

Kelly was a stay-at-home mother, who at times worked for Bill at his company.

In August 2010, when the girls were three and one years old, Bill filed for divorce.

He hired attorney Rosemary Giuliano. The court appointed attorney Mary Brigham as Guardian-Ad-Litem [GAL] to represent the girls’ interests, while charging the parents $350 per hour. Since Bill had the money, he paid 80 percent of the GAL billings.

Bill Grohs

On November 2, 2010, the Connecticut Family Services Unit’s Comprehensive Custody Evaluation recommended that Kelly have primary custody.

Bill got generous parenting rights. On March 15, 2011, a parenting agreement was entered following the completion of the custody evaluation.

On July 24, 2011, the parents’ marriage was dissolved uncontested, and the parenting plan was incorporated into their divorce.

Kelly moved out of their house to a modest home less than two miles away. Because Kelly had primary custody, she worked part-time doing odd jobs such as catering and house painting. There was a big disparity in wealth, yet Kelly’s home for the girls was described as clean and nicely decorated. It was a comfortable home – both for the mother and the children.

Vicki

Bill’s new girlfriend, Vicki Cann Frenzel, moved in, along with her son, to the Tudor home Bill once shared with Kelly. Vicki owns a hair salon in Oxford called Pure Platinum. Bill and Kelly’s children were taught to call her “Vicki momma”.

On October 18, 2011, three months after the divorce, Bill sought to change the custody agreement.

He retained attorney Michael Fasano of Duffy & Fasano and filed an Ex Parte Motion for Custody and a Motion for Modification before Judge Lloyd Cutsumpas.

Attorney Michael Fasano

Bill won a partial victory. On November 2, 2011, a modified agreement was entered that gave Bill more parenting time. But Bill wanted full custody and he had the money to pay for high-level conflict. He knew Kelly didn’t.

Bill went through the motions.

On March 1, 2012, a Conflict Resolution Conference was referred to Family Services which was unsuccessful.

On June 5, 2012, it was referred to Family Services for Issue Focused Evaluation to determine if it was advisable to modify the parenting plan.

Family Services determined that modification was not in the best interest of the children.

On August 2, 2012, a lengthy post-judgment parenting plan was entered into. It was specific to certain protocols being followed by both parents before any motions to modify could be filed with the court.

Suspected Child Abuse

Then something potentially damaging was disclosed.

In September 2012, Kelly took Genevieve to pediatrician Dr. Ephraim Bartfeld based on concerns Genevieve disclosed to Kelly the previous day. Dr. Bartfeld, a mandatory reporter, told the Department of Children and Families, that Genevieve claimed Vicki’s teenage son put his finger in her vagina. Investigations were launched and the children were interviewed multiple times.

The Child Abuse Interdisciplinary Team and Dr. Bartfeld were involved in what Bill called a “massive investigation.”  In the end, there were no findings of abuse by the son.

Bill claimed Kelly coached Genevieve what to say to the doctor and DCF.  Kelly said she did not coach Genevieve. She merely took her to the doctor after she made the disclosure.

 

Bill Had the Money

After this, it was open and notorious warfare.

Bill kept pouring it on, opening his checkbook to Fasano.  He reportedly spent over $45,000 pursuing a contempt of court motion against Kelly claiming she violated their custody agreement when she went to the pediatrician before consulting with him.

The battle went on for years.

On May 24, 2016, Bill filed a Motion of Contempt and a Motion to appoint a Guardian Ad Litem stating the mother has not been following the court order.

In May 2016, Bill called police because he had the children in his care but didn’t want to return them to Kelly because he claimed she was intoxicated. He provided no proof, but a record of the call was duly noted.

In October 2016, someone contacted police to report Kelly was intoxicated in her car at a gas station with the children. The police showed up at a startled Kelly’s house shortly after. Police reported she was in her bathrobe and did not appear intoxicated.

On October 18, 2016, Bill filed a Motion for Modification of the custody and parenting plan.

In November Bill brought on another attorney, Julie R. Fasano. She deposed Kelly, charging Bill $300 per hour.

On December 20, 2016, Brigham was re-appointed as GAL and the matter was referred to the Family Services for a Comprehensive Custody Evaluation.

Pushing Alcohol Abuse

On January 23, 2017, the accusations of drinking by the lawyers and GAL Brigham, who supported the man who paid her, Bill Grohs, made Kelly, trying to prove she was not a drunk, agree to submit to random breathalyzer tests through a device she would carry with her and provide a test within fifteen minutes of the testing prompt.

If Kelly tested with a readying of 0.02 or higher during her parenting time, or was late taking the test, GAL Brigham would file a request with the court for an emergency status conference to try to take the children away.

GAL, attorney Mary Brigham

This testing would continue until May 5, 2017.

Just a month and a week before the testing was to end, and Kelly had repeatedly passed it, on March 29, 2017, GAL Brigham filed an emergency request with the court stating Kelly had not complied with her breathalyzer testing by providing a late test.

On March 31, 2017, a beaten Kelly agreed she would not drink alcohol at all, not even during her non-parenting time and any positive test or missed test would result in Bill obtaining custody and Kelly would get only supervised access to the children.

Kelly could not drink a glass of wine at home, even when the kids were away.

Bill was winning the war by outspending Kelly.

By this time, Kelly was on food stamps. In fact, Kelly was unable to pay the GAL.

But GAL Brigham filed a contempt motion against Kelly for non-payment of $2,300 for her share of the professional services.

Judge Marie Louise Schofield

Judge Marie Louise Schofield Schofield ordered payment to Brigham or else Kelly would face contempt and go to jail.

Brigham’s invoices. Her correspondence. Take a look at three invoices of GAL Brigham:  $7,500 billed for reading emails, talking on the telephone, driving to court, meeting with attorneys and review of the Summer Enrichment Program. By calling or emailing lawyers, GAL Brigham created billable hours for them as well as herself.

2017 Was a Very Bad Year

Meantime, Julie Fasano had marshals show up and serve a subpoena on a startled Kelly on a Saturday morning. The subpoena demanded another deposition, this time on her finances and commanded her to produce 72 months of bank statements, images of all checks on any type of account, all W2s, 1099s. They were looking to see if she had purchased any liquor or anything else they could use against her.

Kelly could not afford to pay her lawyer so Robert S. Kolesnik withdrew from the case.  Without a lawyer, Kelly was acting pro se while Bill was spending tens of thousands on lawyers and, unlike Kelly, did not have to be prompted to pay the guardian ad litem. He knew she was available for purchase and at the very reasonable rate of $350 per hour.

As Bill spent money on depositions, even of his own witnesses, making extensive discovery requests, filing briefs, running up over $50,000 in combined legal fees on a single motion, he successfully drained the mother’s cash and exhausted her borrowing power.

After he lost a contempt prosecution, he filed a custody motion. The mother’s money was gone.

In August 2017, Fasano filed a motion asking the court to take the children away from Kelly and cut off visitation.

Fasano’s allegations were vague. He alleged Kelly had an “unwillingness to facilitate and encourage a continual parent-child relationship between the minor children and the plaintiff by involving them in court proceedings and speaking negatively about the plaintiff to the minor children.” She displayed “manipulative behaviors” but he did not specify what those were.

He claimed the children’s “physical and mental well-being while at the defendant’s [Kelly’s] residence and while in her care,” was “detrimental to the psychological well-being and best interests of the minor children.”

Chris Haddad, the family relations officer of the court, rejected these claims and recommended no change to the six-year-old custody/living arrangement. On June 12, Kate O’Conner from that office completed a custody evaluation for the court finding that the mother was a fit parent and the custody agreement should remain in place.

A Damning Report

It was recommended to the judge that Bill Grohs take a course in how to be a parent, act civilly and stop creating family conflicts. The report also provided a startling picture of how hard Bill was trying to destroy Kelly.

He was determined to demonstrate Kelly’s unfitness as a parent as he made one accusation after another to the evaluator, almost all of them unproven and untrue.

Bill said Kelly had Munchausen syndrome by proxy. Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy is a mental health problem in which a caregiver makes up or causes an illness or injury in a person under his or her care. The evaluator contacted Dr. Bartfeld who said Kelly did not exhibit symptoms of Munchausen and there was no concern of medical neglect.

Bill pushed his claim that Kelly had issues with alcohol. He had gone to the length of hiring a private investigation firm, JEM Investigative Services, to spy on his wife. The firm got five people to provide statements of their observations or purported knowledge of Kelly’s alcohol abuse.

Kelly said she believed Bill went searching for people to make statements against her in his pursuit to ruin her reputation and diminish her role as a parent.

Bill claimed she was driving with the children intoxicated and left them in the car while pumping gas as she bought cigarettes.

Bill, spending big money spying on his wife, provided a videotape from a gas station to purportedly demonstrate that Kelly left the children in the car while buying cigarettes.

The evaluator, O’Conner, wrote, “It was unclear to this writer what the footage actually showed, but what is concerning is the length that Mr. Grohs would go to demonstrate a concern that did not need that much attention. If he continues to nitpick every little thing Ms. Grohs does, it will only continue to destroy any chances of having an effective co-parenting relationship with Ms. Grohs. A more reasonable way to have handled that was to speak to her about it and ask that she not do it again.”

What the evaluator did not understand was that Bill did not have any intention of co-parenting and his cooperation with the evaluator was just a sham.

O’Conner continued: “This writer met with Mr. Grohs on more than three occasions. In those meetings, Mr. Grohs had a difficult time articulating his proposal for the custody of the children. It was striking that new concerns would come forward on Ms. Grohs after the initial conjoint meeting. Serious allegations were made…  it appears Mr. Grohs is determined in his pursuit to demonstrate Ms. Grohs’ unfitness as a parent. … this relentless behavior is not helpful.

“He appeared to lack the insight that his pursuit to obtain information from people in the community on Ms. Grohs’s drinking or irresponsibility only compounds the conflict between the parents. Mr. Grohs paints a mission to prove something instead of trying to fix it. This will only have a damaging effect on the children despite whether he is proven right or wrong.”

After filing a discovery motion with the court, Bill obtained banking statements of Kelly that showed multiple purchases of alcohol over a one-year period. He was eager to show this as proof to the evaluator.

Kelly admitted to the evaluator she drank wine, sometimes two glasses a night, but it did not rise to the level of a drinking problem. Bill never saw her intoxicated with the children, Kelly said.

Bil next claimed that the children had excessive absences from school when their mother had them. The evaluator reported that the children’s schools reported there were no attendance issues with either child.

Sophia told the evaluator that when she is sick, her mother had her stay home and took care of her. Her father sent her to school when she was sick.

Father Revealed He Did Not Like Mother

Sophia disclosed how her father told her he did not like how her mother looks and she’s not a friend.

“Sophia felt bad about this because she feels she looks like her mother. Sophia stated that her father told her he has people watching her and keeping her safe. He told her that sometimes people are telling him stuff that is going on at her mother’s home. Sophia feels that nothing bad is going on at her mother’s home.”

The evaluator also noticed how Bill rudely interrupted Kelly when they were interviewed together. “[Bill] would not allow [Kelly] to finish her thoughts or sentences… This writer had to tell him multiple times to allow Ms. Grohs to finish.”

Wanted Sole Custody

Bill told the evaluator he should have sole legal and physical custody of the children because he and Vicki could provide a stable and safe home for the children.  Vicki was also interviewed. She belittled Kelly and told the evaluator that the children called her, Vicki, “mom” too suggesting she was the better mother.

The custody evaluator wrote, “Mr. Grohs needs to remind Ms. Frenzel she is in the role of a step-parent, not the children’s mother. At times, Mr. Grohs expressed that he and Vicki can provide the children with a stable home, however  he has to  understand that Vicki will not replace the girls’ mother.“

How wrong she was, as we shall see.

The custody evaluator recommended no changes should be made to the custody agreement the parents followed since 2012.

But Bill’s money trumped this report.

Bill Steals the Kids

Bill’s attorney Michael Fasano made an emergency motion to get custody. Bill, who paid 80 percent of GAL Brigham’s fees, had her in his corner.

Judge Anna Ficeto

Connecticut Family Court Judge Anna M. Ficeto decided that sole custody of the girls was to be awarded to the father with no visitation for the mother as of September 1, 2017, on time for the first day of school.

No reason was stated, no memo of decision issued, no citation of ‘change in circumstance’ was identified, no cause was given by the court, no published statement of cause in the public court file to document the incredible fact that a judge took the kids away from their mother six years after the divorce was settled.

Six years, 120 post judgment docket entries, hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal and GAL fees paid by Bill, two law firms, six attorneys, private investigators, psychologists, interrogations, countless hours of depositions, discoveries, and valuable court time finally paid off.

Bill got the children away from their mother and her extended family, grandparents, uncles, aunts, cousins, half-siblings, even neighborhood pals. He wouldn’t let the girls talk to family on the phone or get gifts or cards. Fasano threatened the mother’s family with police action should they try to maintain familial relations with the girls. When Kelly sent flowers for the children to the school, Bill called the police.

Kelly Tries to Find Out Why

On September 11, 2017, a desperate Kelly Grohs filed a motion to get Judge Ficeto to at least state her reasons for taking away her children. She would need this to make an appeal.

She filed “The defendant moves the court to comply with CGS § 51-190a, Filing of papers upon decision, in the instant matter for decisions rendered from proceedings on 10 and 31 August. Absent statutory compliance in filing memorandum of decision with the clerk, there is no public record of the factual basis of the decision by Ficeto, J. Filing with the clerk also required by PB § 6.1(6) and is required for purposes of appeal under CGS § 52-263. WHEREFORE, the aforementioned presented, a matter of due process in statutory compliance, in the best interests of the children and to prosecute appeal; said memorandum of decision to be filed post haste with the clerk.”

Judge Ficeto denied the request to tell the mother why she did what she did, and to this day no one knows why Kelly cannot see her children.

Kelly Grohs

Kelly Stalking?

Now that he had the kids, Bill needed to destroy Kelly’s credibility. Bill sought a restraining order in October. Vicki claimed in a sworn affidavit, that Kelly was standing in the bushes staring at her son, stalking him. There were no pictures or video evidence. Kelly denied doing this.

Ficeto Takes Care of Her Own

While she did not care to state her reasons for denying the mother contact with her children, Judge Ficeto was clear in ordering another emergency hearing on fees due to GAL Brigham.  Kelly owed the GAL over $5,000 for her role in taking her children away.

Kelly had no money. Judge Ficeto threatened the mother with jail.  Kelly borrowed the money. The GAL was paid. Everyone was happy except the children and their mother.

After wrapping up business in Judge Ficeto’s court by getting custody for the wealthy father, and getting the GAL paid for her work, the Grohs case was moved to the Regional Family Trial Docket before Judge Mark Gould, who sits in Bridgeport.

Judge Mark Gould

There was no court order by a judge, the litigants never filed for change of venue, no compliance with the special docket rules, no hearing specifying why the Waterbury judges couldn’t handle the matter, yet the case was moved halfway across the state for trial.

Kelly got some money together and retained attorney David DeRosa hoping that with a new judge she would have a chance at winning custody back.

In August 2018, about a year after the mother was removed from the children’s lives, Kelly’s lawyer, DeRosa, had not filed a single motion on behalf of the mother of any legal merit, yet he invoiced her for a great deal of ‘legal work’.

Judge Gould shut down the proceedings. DeRosa was found to be incompetent. But Judge Gould kept Judge Ficeto’s order in place, denying the mother contact with her children. Once again, Kelly was stymied.

GAL Keeps on Giving

September 24, 2018

Connecticut Superior Court guardian ad litem Mary Piscatelli Brigham kept working on the case, supposedly ensuring the best interest of the children, but really working to enlarge her billings, charged the mother $5700 for her services in taking away her children.

At the same time, Brigham billed the father, Bill, for her services in getting him the children, documented in 12 pages going back 21 months, for $51,000.

Bill paid almost 10 times as much and paid on time. He got his money’s worth. He bought custody of the children.

Bill Reaps What He Sowed

Bill must have enjoyed the glory of taking his children away from their mother. He and ‘Vicki momma’ had them all to themselves. Bill enjoyed part of 2017, all of 2018 and some of 2019. Then with a dash of poetic justice, the man who did everything to destroy the woman who brought his children into the world, was diagnosed with brain cancer.

All his money could not purchase a lawyer to buy his way out. No judge could rule in his favor. Bill was dying. His condition went from bad to worse.

His will provided that his money went to his girls, a residual estate worth millions managed in a trust drawn up by Fasano. Vicki, who was not his wife, was not included in the will. When he died, the children would get Bill’s money, Kelly would get the children back and Vicki would be out the door.

Vicki, who lived with Bill for nine years, took action. First, she married the dying man with a prenuptial agreement that ensured she was taken care of.

With Bill in ICU, Vicki Cann Frenzel gets ’emergency’ custody of girls.

She then realized she could control his estate but she needed custody of the children. By early January 2020, Bill was fully incapacitated. He could not do a thing.  Vicki told the court Bill was dying in ICU and only had days to live. She wanted an emergency hearing for custody of the children claiming that Kelly was out of the children’s lives.

The Last Minute Will

On January 26, Vicki helped her dying husband execute a new will on his death bed, witnessed by ‘friends’.

It seems that Vicki might have devised or written the terms of the new will. She had Bill give most of his estate to his children but to be held in trust that Vicki alone controlled.

Vicki could not get away with snatching all his wealth, not after just marrying him. There was a trust out there with Fasano and a will that gave the money to his kids. She could not just come along and take it all to herself. There were millions at stake.

There was a better way. She was named as the trustee of the new will with almost unlimited power to spend for the children [and herself] as she saw fit. The new will also added perks for her and her son.  Vicki’s son got Bill’s collection of trucks and $45,000.

Vicki got the Chevy Tahoe and the Tudor home in Watertown, worth about half a million, as well as the entire contents of the home, plus $350,000 “which” as the will stated, “is in satisfaction of my prenuptial commitments to her, as well as my love for her.”

And the new will ensured Kelly got nothing.

“I knowingly and intentionally make no provision herein for my former wife, KELLY GROHS, for reasons which I do not care to mention herein. It is my intention that there be no circumstances nor conditions under which she shall ever inherit anything whatsoever from my estate.”

And Vicki wanted to make sure the old trust drawn by Fasano was not considered valid.

The new will stated, “I knowingly and intentionally confirm that under no circumstances nor conditions shall my former attorney MICHAEL FASANO, SR. be involved in any way, shape or manner with my person nor my Estate, nor shall any of the documents I formerly drew up with him as my attorney, all of which I am now revoking and destroying in their entirely, be used for any reason.”

The trust for the children was really a trust for Vicki since she could “hold, manage, invest and reinvest …  and to collect the income… To pay over or to expend for the benefit of each such beneficiary so much of the annual net income and principal as the Trustee, in her sole discretion, shall deem advisable for such beneficiary’s health, maintenance, education, comfort, interest and support.”

And may accumulate and periodically add to the principal of said part any income not so expended.’

Vicki controls all the money until the girls are 25.  Vicki can spend from the trust all costs of fighting for custody of the children and to employ legal and investment counsel, accountants, or other agents and advisors for the transaction of any business of the estate including protecting her role as trustee.

The new will also appointed Vicki as executrix “with full power and authority to sell, transfer and convey any property, real or personal… at public or private sale, at such time and price and upon such terms and conditions…  at any price my Executrix shall determine is adequate, and upon whatever terms she deems advisable.”

In short, Vicki could sell anything Bill owned for any price, even sell it to herself at a discount.

The new will not only changed the terms of the trusts that Fasano had drawn when Bill was well and could think for himself, and vastly improved Vicki’s position; it even shows signs of Vicki’s authorship.

The new will states, “I have sole legal and physical custody of my minor daughters, SOHIA M. GROHS AND GENEVIEVE T. GROHS, and they live with my me and my wife VICKI FRENZEL (whom they call Mommy Vicki), and I appoint my wife VICKI FRENZEL to be the Guardian of the person(s) of my minor children of this my Last Will and Testament, because of the love they share and the commitment for their health and welfare that my wife has shown for them.”

Vicki Gets Custody

With the new will squared away, on February 14, 2020, Vicki filed for custody of the girls claiming she was the ‘psychological mother’ of the children.

For reasons that are unclear, Kelly did not appear at this hearing, possibly because she did not know that it was occurring.

Judge Eric Coleman in giving custody to Vicki ruled that she had a relationship with the two girls that is ‘akin to that of a parent’.

He wrote that by Kelly’s “own volition [she] had not had any meaningful contact with the minor children for two and half years.” Volition is “the faculty or power of using one’s will.” It was not Kelly who chose to not see her children. The court and Bill’s money saw to that.

Legacy

About two weeks later, on Monday, March 2, 2020, William J. “Bill” Grohs Jr. 58, passed away, at home.

He spent his last nine years on earth and probably over half a million dollars on lawyers to get his children taken from their mother. The girlfriend got the children and their trust funds too.

After his death, in Southbury probate court, Vicki went to take control of the children’s insurance proceeds from Bill’s life insurance. She took the witness stand and testified how she intercepted gifts from Kelly’s family and friends to prevent the girls from having contact with their natural family. GAL Brigham was present billing the estate $350 per hour.

It had been a long battle.

Judge Cutsumpas opened the divorce judgement three months after the divorce. He had the case for five years, then Judge Ficeta took the case at the end of 2016, with some pinch-hitting by Judge Mary Louise Schofield and Judge Andrew Roraback.

The case was passed to Judge Mark Gould at RFTD in early 2018.  Gould kept it until January 2020, without making a ruling, then sent it back to Waterbury where Judge Coleman gave the money and the children who went with it to stepmother Vicki because Bill was dying.

So Bill is dead; the case is over: 3,142 days of post judgement litigation has come to an end.

Cancer took his life. The lawyers took his money. The stepmother got the children. The mother and her children have not been in contact for four and a half years. They were 9 and 11 when their father‘s wealth procured them from Family Court.

All that fighting to deprive the mother. All that money wasted. He did not live to see his children grow up or reap the harvest of his vengeance against the mother of his children.

As for the children, do they remember the woman who gave them birth and raised them for the first decade of their lives? Have they been alienated completely and taught to efface her memory?

This is Connecticut Family Court as it really is, a racketeering operation that exists for the welfare of lawyers and the GALs; a rotten place that needs to be investigated for the many crimes that are committed there.

  • How disgusting! Attorneys and Judges are easily paid off.This poor Mom deserves to have her children back in her life! Sadly by now I’m sure they’ve been brain washed. And for Mr. Grohs looks like Karma paid him a visit.
    May he RIH!

  • Thank you Frank Parlato for all of your hard work reporting on a story for a #ProtectiveMom – There are thousands of us that continue to fight to have a life with our children #aidileys

    • @anonymous about raise your rights, I’ll start with common sense and Add more: 1. Have you ever gone to a jury trial? 2. Why should a trial OR jury happen at a NO FAULT divorce? Raise what rights- two parties agreeing to cancel a contract? It is family court that is the problem

    • Who is the anonymous dummy who does not understand that a jury is not part of parens patriae powers??? The ignorance of the law is profound….so silly.

    • We must abolish “immunity” for judges that appoint it for themselves and others they “appoint” on cases

  • Thank you so much for reporting on this. The family court has devolved into a criminal racketeering scheme. Thousands of lives are being destroyed and most media don’t have the balls to cover it. Good work and keep it up!!! 👏👏👏

  • Kelly, sadly is not alone.
    Thank you for reporting one of the millions of stories to the harms of both mothers and children.

  • The Mother should have the children plain and simple. No visitation at all for the step parent. All parties involved in taking away her children should be hung.

  • This article is simply heart wrenching. The Broadway show “To Kill a Mockingbird” reminds us all that not much has changed in the US courtrooms since Tom Robinson’s fate was sealed even before he stepped into the courtroom … in 1930.
    While Ms. Grohs is not black, it seems that her only fault was to be poor in front of a man with too much money and anger. It is clear that thanks to his vast wealth, he secured a winning score for himself at the detriment of his own children (and forget even mentioning his ex wife). It is a crying shame. America please wake up … for the sake of our children!

  • That is one of the saddest cases I’ve ever read. Did anyone bother to ask the 2 girls what THEY WANTED? I mean, it’s not like they weren’t old enough to voice an opinion! Also, how on god’s green earth did Bill get away with paying NO alimony to his ex.. and also, why did the ex have to pay anything AT ALL to the GAL!?? These people are criminals and completely ruined that woman’s life, not to mention what it has probably done to the poor children. No matter whether or not the bio mom abused alcohol, I’m sure her girls still loved her regardless and taking them away with NO ACCESS at all is a crime in itself! Bill’s probably the one who drove her to drink so she could escape the reality of being married to him! What an a**hole!

  • The bell has been rung that cannot be unrung, the times of childhood destruction by the monsters in black robes has expired, predators like Vicki Frenzel are in the public spotlight, the wicked will be stopped, children protected. It is His will.

  • There are very similar stories to this type of child trafficking in court in MAINE. What is even more interesting is that some of the players have ties to BOTH Maine and Connecticut Courts. Same scheme… Same players. Sadly, I found this connection 15 yrs ago.
    12 MAINE JUDGES ALLOW 11 YR OLD BOY TO BE SENTENCED TO SOLITARY CONFINEMENT WITH HIS ABUSER. http://www.FalmouthToday.me
    PS. The initiating judge also implemented the kids for cash scheme spanning over 2 decades…yet to be investigated. Many child victims did not survive. To my knowledge, they have all been male, all had the same PO, and the same court appointed attorney, who worked both Maine and Connecticut, and all went to Longcreek and group homes where they were abused and/or molested. Something worth investigating, but it really doesn’t end there. This is an epidemic across America in family and juvenile that will never end due to the billions of dollars a year it generates our government bodies.

  • Same is happening to me and THOUSANDS of protective parents everywhere. Thank you for shining a light on this horrific corruption.

    • Sadly, if there was no money in it for the attorneys, GAL, judge/court, the girls would be with their mother. Exactly where they belong. It’s that simple. If there was no money involved, none of this would have happened. A GAL would certainly never have been involved. Bill buttered the court, Atty & GAL’s bread. And at the very last moment made Vicki his wife, or better yet Vicki made Vicki his wife. Bill had terminal brain cancer. Vicki walked out of his life and left the girls alone with him for two months toward the end of his life because he wouldn’t agree to her terms of his will. I’ve seen this relationship from the very beginning. I’ve seen Bill’s manipulation from the very beginning. He was a sick man before he was even diagnosed with cancer. He used Kelly’s girls as pawns. Not just his two girls but Kelly’s older girls as well. Absolute pawns. Bill was by all definition a narcissistic, evil, manipulator. And this case is beyond corrupt. I’ve seen judge Fiseto’s blatant hatred for Kelly first hand. Rude, degrading, unprofessional, and completely biased. She does all she can to not hiss when she speaks to Kelly. It’s so obvious. She can’t even answer why – after repeated requests to answer- have the girls been taken from their mother. Kelly has no arrests, no DUIs, no accidents. She was a loving mother who loved (and still does) her girls. She cooked for them, she baked with them, she gardened with them, she did crafts with them, she prayed with them, she brought them to church. She was a loving mother who loved her girls. I’m not saying she was perfect but she did do her very best. She adhered to every request by the court induced by Bill, including using a breathalyzer/monitor for 6 months which would request a breath sample at any given time whether she had the girls or not and she passed. SIX MONTHS. No detox, no breakdowns. I’m not sure an alcoholic – as Bill made her out to be – could so easily do that, especially for SIX MONTHS. How degrading to have to do this in front of her kids at all times of the day because of an accusation. Bill had nothing else. He paid to have her followed looking for the slightest slip. He got nothing. Nothing. Yet he continued to pay and paint a picture of an incompetent mother. The court has nothing on her. Again… what is the reason the girls were taken from her? Just answer that simple question. Why doesn’t Kelly have visitation at least? She was granted daily calls with the girls. Bill stopped that too. No reason just stopped. Motion after motion to get anything done, year after year. It’s a crime. The girls should have never been taken from their mother – there is no legitimate reason for that. If there is…what is it? The court system has failed. It is a crime. The GAL is corrupt. It is a crime. The judge and attorneys are corrupt. It’s all a heartbreaking crime. The girls have lost years of life with their mother. Their mother is – and has been from the outset – heartbroken and devastated. Vicki isn’t even worth talking about. Bill moved her into the house three yes THREE months after the divorce and made those girls call her “Vicki Mama”. It had nothing to do with a motherly connection. They were too young to even know. If the role was reversed, Bill would have flipped his lid! If there was no money to be had, Vicki would not even be part of the topic. She would have been long gone. I only hope that there is resolution and Kelly is reunited with her children. HER children. HER GIRLS. The girls need extensive therapy for what they’ve been needlessly put through. Has the GAL made sure they are receiving the appropriate mental health needs?

      Vicki can move on to her next victim and we all know where Bill can continue to rest.

      • Greg Ellis posted this article in his Twitter page and said he’s trying to contact Kelly Smith Grohs. It sounds like you may know her. He wrote a book about the cartel of family law and runs a charity. He wants to help reunite Kelly with her children. His Twitter is @ellisgreg. Please let Kelly know.

  • The judge and children’s attorney were paid off. The mother could file a lawsuit and get her daughters back in her care. The will was changed while the man was dying.

    • However, these family courts violate all laws, and the US Constitution. They knowingly violate the rights of The People with zero accountability

      • Interestingly, Connecticut is the ONLY state where it is in fact an actual Constitutional violation. All other states do not provide for blanket prohibition of sex discrimination. Discrimination against women is totally legal except where specifically stated. Connecticut changed and violates its own laws and 9th and 10th amendment provide the ability to create and maintain those laws

        • The Judiciary does NOT give us Rights, nor do the states or our federal government!
          We have Rights, it is their job to uphold our Rights.
          –United States Constitution Bill of Rights Amendment 9
          “Unenumerated Rights, Cannot deny or disparage Rights inferred, which are retained by The People.”
          –North Carolina Constitution, Declaration of Rights Article 1 Section 2
          “All political power is vested in and derived from the people; all government of right originates from the people, is founded upon their will only”
          United States Constitution Amendment 14
          “No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States”.

          I could go on…

          NOTICE, I am not asking for my RIGHTS – I am demanding they are upheld.

  • Katie O’Connell was the family relations specialist who said this was all ok – through the years – why? Who is in charge of this? Same family relations people are on these cases – in this case, Chris Haddad was supervisor.

    “On November 2, 2010, the Connecticut Family Services Unit’s Comprehensive Custody Evaluation”

    Who does this training and what are the qualifications to be an evaluator? If you look at data and you see so many failures, start looking at assessments.

    • Family Relations Division of the Superior Court is a little scam operation, as the judiciary has no expertise in family relations, is not a social service branch of government, just anther way that society can be destroyed by the whim of judges who think they are a benefit to the family. Deb Fuller is the head of this worthless department, designed to provide work and paychecks to the most incompetent folks known to mankind. Deb Fuller, Chris Hadaad, Kathleen Montano are just wasted state money. Judges don’t listen to what they say in the first place.

    • Reality is that the Connecticut Judicial Branch does not have a process/procedure for a ‘CUSTODY EVALUATION’, it is just word salad, that from the authority of the family relations officers the court will have reliable EVIDENCE on who gets CUSTODY. Time to call out the charlatans under Chief Justice Richard Robinson for playing fraud upon the people. The State has no standard for family relations, no measure of EVALUATION for custody, it is simply a racket designed to drain savings accounts and harm children. Just ask Deb Fuller and Gary Roberage, they have no answers on how the voo doo they doo is done.

  • Can’t we start a petition of public arrest?
    I, Amy Brockwell would like to report a crime and ask for the public arrest of all family court cohorts who would allow such child abuse for years on end as they pocket funds. It is unethical and humanitarian.

    • I agree! These are crimes. The judges, GALs, attorneys, and psychologists — all part of the ring — are child abusers. They hide under a veil of a “custody dispute”– and control the narrative from the start. The children are pawns; their childhoods destroyed.

      There is no protection. IT IS RICO– run by the GAL’s– they even have hand-selected contacts with police and DCF– to prevent those with integrity from accessing and protecting our children.

      CT media WILL NOT REPORT on any of it. There is a CT Judicial Committee specifically to meet with media– It’s to make certain nothing is published; no exposure.

      Attorney General William Tong knows all of this– it goes all the way to the top in CT. They condone such conduct.

      PUBLIC OPINION AND OUTCRY is the ONLY WAY.

      Racketeering by CT government–
      It’s that simple.

      Thank you, Frank Report!!!

      • William Tong is part of the state’s deviant culture. He sponsors childhood rape. He promotes communist activity in the government. He does advocates inhumane treatment of the peasants. Welcome to gulag connecticut.

  • If you were actually doing investigative reporting on these CT family court cases, rather than just serving as a mouthpiece for mothers who have lost custody of their kids, I would start giving these more than a cursory glance.

    • I prefer to think I am the mouthpiece for children taken from their mothers or fathers by money-driven lawyers, especially the guardians-ad-litem.

      • Hello Frank,
        I am a mom from Chicago, IL and also an attorney and I have almost identical story where my three children have been taken away from me. My children’s GAL was David Pasulka, whose licence has been suspended in December of 2020 and who has been criminally charged for sexually assaulting and blackmailing women and mothers whose children he represented. If you are interested in this story please email me.
        Thank you, Aneta

          • The same people flip flop on other cases sometimes acting as representing for parents and other times with the same players acting as GALs. Brigham is the usual GAL in Waterbury involving Julie Porzio, Mike Fasano, Rosemarie Giuliano. Interestingly, GALs can be erased from dockets.

        • Illinois, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Texas and California get huge money- top five in country (wee widdle Connecticut) on fatherhood money- also look up “AFCC- making divorce pay” you’ll find ties there too

        • Illinois, Texas, California, Pennsylvania, and Connecticut are top-funded states to do this to mothers. Billions in federal funding drives this as much as – if not more than – what’s derived from parents. Actually, the bill originated from Illinois that was passed in the Clinton era to do this to mothers. Not saying this doesn’t happen to fathers, but a reason why this happens FOR rich fathers and TO fathers who make under 70k a year They can afford the 25k down payment – and that’s all these wealthy men ever pay. Mothers do not have a chance to go through the door – rich abusive white male makes for a doomed mother and children

  • This is the fault of the Judicial Board for not mandating all judges be trained on all forms of domestic violence, which include; court abuse, emotional, mental, and psychological abuse, stalking, financial abuse, attorney abuse, parental alienation, etc. This mother has faced medical abuse by proxy brought on by her ex-spouse! This diagnosis was also used by my ex-husband, who had zero proof! Two MMPIs showed zero mental health disorders concerning me! Men can run to court and file fraudulent contempt charge after fraudulent contempt charge because our Judicial Board doesn’t mandate mandatory training on these other forms of abuse. Currently, the Judicial Board has mandated 24 judges in the United States be trained about the physical side of abuse! Out of all the judges in the USA! Think about that! Women and innocent children are being torn away from their biological mothers and fathers because a narcissistic abuser decides to use the courthouse to inflict pain and rip children away – and once they have custody, the children are totally alienated from the bio parent, other siblings, aunts, uncles, grandparents, great grandparents, all because the judges hearing these cases are not trained or mandated to be trained on domestic violence and abuse. The courtroom is where narcissistic abusers shine because they do not care about the children! They only care about destroying the innocent parent! This forces children through the worst, emotional, mental, and psychological abuse in their lives!

    If a parent really loved their child, they would think about their children more, and less about dragging an innocent parent through this form of hell! But the narcissistic abuser doesn’t care at all. Their only purpose is to destroy the other parent! No matter how much they lie, deceive, and take away from the innocent parent (who is the victim) – and this is happening daily inside courtrooms across our country! The innocent child suffers! The innocent parent suffers, at the hands of untrained judges, attorneys, and GALs. Any parent caught using the court system to abuse their own children and the other parent needs to go to jail for 365 days! Then, and only then, would this abuse STOP!

    This Vickie abuser and user needs to be in jail for child abuse! These children need to be returned to their bio mother ASAP! These judges need to be removed from the bench along with every GAL in this case! The attorneys for the deceased scum of a father need their attorney license removed! This would be justice! I pray this bio-mom files a massive lawsuit against the state for pure 100% corruption!

    • You know they pay themselves to create trainings and then pay themselves to do the trainings and it revolves around federal funding. The AFCC knows how to access fatherhood money- so do attorneys in this case right in the main line. Now that he’s dead, federal money may end, but hardly any abusers’ children benefit from a trust: they inherit generational trauma, pass it down too.

  • Unfortunately, this is not unusual. It should be but it’s not. This kind of tenaciousness and abuse by litigation needs to be recognized for what it is … domestic abuse.

  • This is such a heartbreaking story to read, my heart goes out to children and their mother for what they have been subjected to

    Hellmend those that engaged in such a dispicable manner through nothing but greed

  • Let’s NOT forget the lawyers who work in concert to make this happen: Rosemarie Guilano, Rick Richardson, JULIE PORZIO, Mary Brigham, Mike Fasano, and every clerk and judge who saw the case- and easy 17 more with three minutes of looking up cases.

  • Thank you so much for writing about this Injustice! I live in Alamance County North Carolina and I have had a similar circumstance in which I had my children taken from me simply because he had more money and he was a cop. It’s a very long story full of legal abuse spiritual abuse and childhood sexual abuse. No one would touch it regarding advocacy’s, television news agencies, newspapers… Thousands of dollars on attorneys who are complacent at best. My last one would not even respond to my request for an appeal. I finally got them back after 7 years of fighting only because he lost his badge and went to jail, karma came for him before the court would provide Justice.

  • This is all about money and lies and never about the children. Sick and evil people: both the dad and stepmom. Never caring for the kids at all.

  • This is horrible. It should have never been allowed.. how is it that family court allows this to happen? Why is there no accountability for the lawyers, GALs, or judges..

  • Conflict or ABUSE??

    • That docket shows how much money the lawyers made from Bill Grohs in abusing the legal system with the blessings of Cutsumpas, Ficeto and Coleman. The judges are monsters.

  • @jill Did you break your crown, fall down AND come tumbling after? Booking my funeral now because I am DYING! Lol. Thanks for being the unintended comedy relief in this sad situation.

  • Or maybe she was a crappy mom who played the hand of lying about abuse and the courts sent the kids to the father and stepmother who loves them and takes care of them. Maybe these poor victimized women are actually the monsters and they are bitter losers. Perhaps had she focused on sharing her children with their father and not making up severe abuse allegations that were proven wrong, she would have been able to share in the raising. At this point, the birth uterus is a stranger. It would harm the kids to return them to her.

    • Given Bill Grohs history of mental disorders, long family history of mother hatred, quite unlikely that mother is a cause. Ask Bill’s first wife. Ask Bill’s brother. Entire Grohs family suffers from a psychosis. World is a better place without Bill Grohs, he has damaged far to many lives. A long rot in hell for the bastard. Only his lawyers miss him….his wallet.

    • Jill, what is that Jack? did you break your crown and come tumbling down after? I had to book my own funeral because I Am DYING lol! I am sure this was a one hit wonder. But thank you- for a foil within this tragic issue!

    • Wow, Vicki @“jill” I think someone made a comment about not caring for children and just money – you enjoying the kids’ trust funds? Must be because you certainly do not care about kids.

      Probably not Vicky, but just some destroyed millennial product of this scam who never has been a mother

    • Oh, Jill, we are so not in that pretty world… Millions of moms lose custody because of

      1. Fatherhood.gov
      No such thing for mom

      2. Billions of funding money
      Which comes from fatherhood.gov

      3. Societies denial of abuse

      4. Patriarchy

      La la
      Lalala la

    • 😳No child should be alienated from their birth mother ever! This is an example of money can buy you corruption but it can’t buy your health.😵‍💫😞

      • Isolation of the children from their mother is child abuse under federal law. But Connecticut judges do not recognize federal law nor the Constitution. Judge Ficeto just trafficked Evie and Sofie so Fasano Family Law firm could make a killing. Michael Sr. Michael Jr and Jr’s wife Julie all pummeled Kelly, Evie and Sofie, for money, just money, all the Fasano’s wanted, not law, not justice, just cold hard cash. Special place in Hell for all of them.

  • Human civil rights violations across the board and happening in every single state across this nation. This is a disgusting atrocity!

  • This ex-husbands behavior was criminal against this mother That should have been in criminal court I hope there is a civil rights group out there that can help these children How many adults suffer from not having a parent in their childhood

  • I m so tired of these corrupt family courts. I’m in the same boat. Got my daughter back after he was arrested for child abuse and then they sent my autistic son back to him. Now fighting for him!

  • This does happen in our family court system. GAL’s are not held to standards set forth, they are not required to report to anyone or justify their actions in written form with corresponding documentation. A stay at home mom without income parting ways from a controlling primary earner is left vulnerable as the “earner” pays the GAL and the children often pay the price. Years of these childrens lives have been stolen and will NEVER be able to be given back.

    HER CIVIL RIGHT TO RAISE HER NATURAL-BORN CHILDREN HAS BEEN VIOLATED.

  • A real powerhouse journalist would want to investigate how many children have died in 2021 in relation to Family Court! If they have not died by murder or suicide from devastation, they’ve been mentally mangled!
    See Center for Judicial Excellence statistics

    Thank you

  • Worse story ever! Giving her children to the step mom?!
    Pure evil at work here! These children will only end up hating the step mom for keeping them from their real mom to control & spend their money! Sick! It’s always about money! 🤬🤬🤬

  • These children need their mother, it is that simple. She is their biological parent, fit and they have the legal right to have her as their parent. The children are the collateral damage and so is our society when they are denied a parent. Judges need to stop the liberal hacking of the courts and hold every contempt that is brought forth as a serious matter and press charges according to the law. It is the only way they can rule the courts without being ruled by the social injustices of the money-hungry social workers, GALs, attorneys and other players’ unethical interests. Without that, family court, juvenile court is Racketeering and Fraud just like this article states.

  • Just because someone has money they shouldn’t have more power over the other parent. Both parents are equal until they both prove their actions differently. In this case, Kelly was doing all she was supposed to and dad continued to degrade mom and belittle her and make her out to be the bad mom with no actual proof. Bill had all disregard for the children’s feelings and all he cared about was himself. The court is very much corrupted. Kelly deserves her children.

    • Excellent Idea!! A lawsuit for alienating her from her children Denying her the right to mother her children Denying the rights for the children to have familial relations Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress…the list goes on

    • She could light the money on fire because at least she could watch a fire. Pay whom to do what? She paid attorneys for YEARS this is where it got her

  • This might be the most horrid case of mothers who have wrongfully lost custody to date. Placed second only to mothers who lost custody and then the life of their child. Millions of children a year lose their mother and many have zero contact with their mother who embodies no fault/no crime. The only word that fits is insanity. Thank you for sharing one of the many horrendous stories. To dig deeper into the crisis see Mothers Revolution for a database of bias unfair custody decissions, suicides, deaths, and murders. Contact @Geerte Freeken and create a much needed investigative running special that will save millions and millions of children from the crimes of the century!

  • Hearing that the CORRUPT AFCC RUNS CORRUPT FAMILY COURT ACROSS THE USA . AFCC ASSOCIATION OF FAMILY AND CONCILIATION COURTS —FOUNDED BY JUDGES / ATTORNEYS / MYER ELKIN OVER 65 YEARS AGO.

  • “wife VICKI FRENZEL (whom they call Mommy Vicki), and I appoint my wife VICKI FRENZEL to be the Guardian of the person(s) of my minor children of this my Last Will and Testament, because of the love they share and the commitment for their health and welfare that my wife has shown for them.”

    I thought human beings weren’t property- since when can they be passed to someone like a bookcase? Connecticut is not the Constitution State: it’s the Communist state. Wow

  • And this was how many years on going:

    “By this time, Kelly was on food stamps. In fact, Kelly was unable to pay the GAL.

    But GAL Brigham filed a contempt motion against Kelly for non-payment of $2,300 for her share of the professional services.”

    Just in this blurb two things that aren’t allowed are happening:
    Litigant in family court cannot be made indigent and dependent upon the state- I guess SNAP is federal so Connecticut doesn’t account for the poverty it creates, but someone on SNAP probably depends on other programs funded by the state.

    Brigham isn’t a party joined in suit, not representing any party joined in suit and has no standing to file anything- in fact case law makes it very clear GALs are not allowed to file motions. If someone wants case law- I’ll put in in reply.

    Did the GAL ever file those fees with Secretary of State? Audits are in order !

  • ” Family ” ” Law ” judges including the few ones who are female are entrenched in patriarchy / in its entitlements of what, and o n l y of what, men want. For ~12 millennia now at the least. ” Patriarchy’s chief institution IS the family. ” p33 in Ms Kate Millet’s Sexual Politics. Custody needs to be decided NOT by one man but by a J U R Y of the peers who were also able to grow human beings IN to their first selves: mothers. NOT by ” exalted ” spermatozoan – spillers.

  • Very clearly – the “professionals” on this case are in on the scam. Of course they know this behavior is unethical but they are also aware that there is no consequence or accountability. Until there is accountability, children will continue to suffer maternal deprivation trauma and US society will suffer generations of harm.

  • This is horrible! I have a similar circumstance but I caught the GAL lying about my sons interview, he was 9yrs old at the time. I plan to press charges for abuse of power and advocate that all GAL interviews with clients, including children, be audio recorded so it never happens again. I am fearful that after the judgement my ex will continue as Bill did. One thing I’m not scared of is sharing information to the public, that’s what they want, we must yell of this aggregated child abuse because separating children from their biological parent through manipulating the family court system is just that, abuse!

  • Excellent work on this article. Inspired to write a similar article about my family’s story. In our case, it’s been nine and a half years and counting in court. Father must have spent around a million in family court expenses. Five courts have been involved: Massachusetts Criminal, Massachusetts Family, Swiss Criminal, Swiss Family, and now Swiss Housing. I never went to court in my life and could never have imagined that I would be leading this life. Father abandoned his children then set out to destroy me financially through the courts. They convinced him he could ‘win’. What has he accomplished? Spent my mother’s savings, his parents’ savings and all of my savings – all for court. He is the only one alive who has anything left. He failed to win custody by impoverishing us. Instead, he profoundly harmed everyone in his family. He redirected his money to evil family court players so they could go on luxurious vacations. He maintained his addictions and he ruined anything left of his character. In the meantime, I am still waiting after 4 1/2 years for the Swiss family court to do something about the Massachusetts judge illegally canceling my alimony when the Swiss court had jurisdiction. Why the Mass judge did this, she said something on tape about how awful it would be if the Swiss took the case. Awful, for whom? It would have been wonderful for the children. But apparently, the children and I are not the judge’s concern.

  • Waterbury is a cesspool of thieves. The players work over any family with money, which is not many. Here is the list of racketeers: Rosemarie Guliano, Len Fasano, his son Mike and daughter in law Julie, Lloyd Cutsumpas, Elizabeth Bozzuto, ANNE FICETO, Eric Coleman, Chris Hadaad, Kathleen Montano, Katie O’Connor, Richard Haas, Beth DuffyBurns, Salvatore Agati and of course the evil Mary Brigham. Society will not improve while these folks walk the earth. Just a fact of gardening that poison ivy is tough to eradicate. The State is actively engaged in racketeering in its own courts. The Chief Justice is told to stay out of the way, which he does obediently. Only the righteous hold the power to purge the Waterbury Court of these child predators.

  • Is there anything anyone can do about it? We all know about the atrocities of the courts. When civil war starts, they will be the first on the chopping box. I give it another 30 or 40 yrs. Until then, judges will be paid off and not much will be done.

    • God made guns for a reason, the Constitution has a Second Amendment for a reason, the children are victims of tyranny, the players are all identified. Yes, there is a solution to the rape of childhood.

  • I am going through this very similar type of nightmare and still fighting the corrupt Las Vegas Family Court and state-related services once they drive you to poverty. Thank you for your work, Frank. My heart goes out to this mother, I can relate in a lot of way to her story.

  • “The genius of any slave system is found in the dynamics which isolate slaves from each other, obscure the reality of a common condition, and make united rebellion against the oppressor inconceivable.”

    – Andrea Dworkin

  • Thanks for writing this. Missing a few things- but I had all same players- Kelly’s ex-first attorney, Rosemary Guiliano is key – she was investigated for bribing judges. It was actually judge and prosecutor John Connelly and he died, investigation fizzled. FBI was sloppy because everyone knew who the investigator was and what he was doing.

    Kelly’s docket is UWY FA 104022991 mine is 104022992. Same exact players, same exact outcome. What you are missing is that this legal action before his death, and in my situation – the legal bills are paid. These rich white guys don’t spend more than 25k. Ambrose doesn’t pay for his litigation either. That’s some ProPublica material.

    One cares about abused women and children as long as they make money from them. Victim economy.

    The FBI and DOJ know all about the abuses. DOJ gets money from the same pile abusive fathers have access to. Even DV funding in CT is 66% derived from making sure abusive fathers have access to kids. Connecticut is top five funded- Illinois, Pennsylvania, Texas and California the others on top five. Moms married to these abusers have no recourse, no viable means to redress. The court bar and bench in CT are dirty. Certain CT appellate and Supreme Court judges hear family cases; Same federal judges, Michael P Shea notably, cover it up. Second Circuit Court does same thing. Bill Nardini, Second Circuit Court judge, was head of CT DOJ criminal, and then becomes a second circuit judge? DOJ did an investigation for four years and came out with “recommendations” CT still has yet to implement. It’s so bad I wish I were crazy and imagined all this stuff.

    Just sane and abjectly sad.

    The AG William Tong was head of the judiciary committee and knows all about the practices of the courts.

  • Racketeering is thriving in CT family court. Children are being bought and their childhoods destroyed. These are NOT custody battles or “high conflict divorce”— they are crimes against children endorsed by judges, attorneys and GAL’s.

    Don’t stop, Frank! This has been going on for decades and the media will not cover it.

    No juries in family court. Corruption is rampant. Thank you, Frank!

    • CT judicial branch has a media committee- all controlled. Scary communist type stuff- there is no family just the state

      • The media committee is designed to muzzle the local press. No reporting on kids being taken away from mothers for no state interest. It is designed to protect the court and the Attorney General. AG Tong holds duty on behalf of the people of the state to challenge the court decisions which isolate kids from mom. Such isolation is child abuse under federal law, where the state is given federal funds to ensure does not happen. Tong is part of the problem.

  • This ain’t no story for Christmas, Frank. What a mess. Welcome to America…….

    Thank god I live in a country without this abhorrent income inequality and its terrible effects on people. You see it in the NXIVM case, you see it with Ghislaine Maxwell and you see it in this case….not a happy Christmas for Kelly….

      • At first I was perplexed as to why these patently unfit fathers fight so hard for custody of their children when they so clearly loathe the role. Then it occurred to me that they must realize it is less expensive to spend the money now on lawyers and bribes than to pay years of child support.

        • They don’t pay any more than 25k to do this FOR YEARS. That is the story just as much – and people tend to care about money more than abused women and children

        • It’s about control, not money. They lose control of the woman when they are divorced or leave them. The only way to control is through the children. The kids are just pawns to these men. They will pay 100 times to the court versus what they would have paid in child support.

          • So very true. He paid an ungodly amount to not pay that $230 a month to me. Now he controls my entire life because he has full custody of my child thru court-sanctioned abuse by proxy for over a decade. I have a zero criminal record. And I’m a nurse and paramedic with licenses in good standing for 23 years. No drug, alcohol, or mental health issues. The only thing they could really prove was that we cannot co-parent…but why do ya think that is????? He constantly manufactures conflict!! They rewarded his bad behavior by giving him full custody. It is still absolutely insane when I think about what has happened. All because the spoiled little rich boy doesn’t want to share and wants everything his way. smdh

    • Vicki Frenzel needs the kids as she is paid by the large trust funds to care for them. The lawyers get paid to administer the funds. If the kids go back to mom, Vicki goes back to the trailer park. The kids are cash. If there was no money the kids would have been dropped on mom’s porch in need of food and clothing. See how cash drives the ‘best interest’ of a child. Note that the transfer of kids and cash was done by the incompetent Judge Eric Coleman, a black man doing the white man’s crime in a court of law.
