Ashley Deckert Director of Rhode Island Department of Children, Youth & Families Responds to Concerns About Ambrose Children

Ashley Deckert RI DYCF has confirmed that her department is aware of the concerns raised about the Ambrose children now living in Rhode Island.

What Rhode Island will do is anybody’s guess. 

But Richard Luthmann, a contributor to Frank Report, and a Substack writer, emailed the Rhode Island Department of Children, Youth & Families (DCYF) about the teenage children of Christopher Ambrose and Karen Riordan, who currently live in Rhode Island.

They lived in Connecticut with their mother until August 8, when CT Family Court Judge Thomas J. O’Neill issued a restraining order barring the mother’s contact with her children. 

Rather than live with their father, the teens went to Rhode Island to live with their maternal grandfather. 

 Luthmann’s email is entitled: 

Danger to Children in RI from Psychopath, Pedophile CT father: Mia Ambrose, 16, Matthew Ambrose, 16, and Sawyer Ambrose, 13.”

Luthmann, whose says the Ambrose children are “at risk from their psychopath predator father, “identifies himself as “a reporter following the story.”

Also copied on the email are RI DCYF personnel, media members, and federal law enforcement, including Kristen Setera, Public Affairs Advisor at the FBI Boston Division, which oversees Rhode Island.

Luthmann provided recent pictures of the Ambrose children and directed authorities to the Frank Report for additional information.

Here is Luthmann’s email to Rhode Island DYCF:

Dear Sirs and Madams:

I wanted to alert you to three children in your state whom I believe are at risk from their psychopath predator father. The children are Mia Ambrose, 16, Matthew Ambrose, 16, and Sawyer Ambrose, 13.

I am also a reporter who has been following the story. I believe the children will be in imminent harm if Christopher Ambrose attempts to cross state lines and forcible remove them against their wills back to CT. 

Their father, disgraced Hollywood writer Christopher Ambrose, appears to be crossing state lines so that he can retrieve the children who fled to their grandfather’s house in Rhode Island for safety. I fear Ambrose may bring the children back to his den of iniquity in Madison, Connecticut, where underage drinking, drugs use, and sex (statutory rape) regularly occurs.

I have enclosed some materials showing Christopher Ambrose’s dangerousness:

  • December 15, 2020 – CT Court Report showing Ambrose as “HIGH RISK” for dangerousness.
  • Email dated June 6, 2023 between Attorney Michael G. Curley of Murtha Cullina, LLP, and Nancy Stewart, Kelly Burke, and Michelle Peterson of the Connecticut Department of Children and Families (DCF). In this email, there is a reference to “a new allegation of penetration.” 
  • Report dated May 29, 2023, from Private Investigator Manuel Gomez to WDNY US Attorney Trini Ross’s Office and the FBI Office-Buffalo detailing molestation by Christopher Ambrose. PI Gomez describes the video evidence he transmitted to the authorities and has in his possession. 
  • Report dated May 3, 2023, from Bandy Lee, MD, MDiv, warning of Christopher Ambrose’s dangerousness where his children are involved.
  • Signed statement dated May 29, 2023, of Mia Ambrose detailing Christopher Ambrose’s physically and emotionally abusive activity and improper touching. The statement corroborates the presence of men over the age of 18 (some in their 20s) with children aged 14 and 15 for “overnight” stays where there is underage drug, alcohol use, and sex.
  • Social Media pictures corroborating underage drinking, drug use, and sex, published in the July 20, 2023 article: “How is Wealthy Elite Christopher Ambrose of Madison, CT Involved in Underage Drinking, Drugs, and Sex?

I further believe that Ambrose’s attorneys from Needle Cuda in Westport, Connecticut, may be in contact with the Rhode Island Department of Children, Youth, and Families.  

Plenty of additional information is in the public record showing Ambrose’s danger. Particularly, investigative journalist Frank Parlato has covered this case for years. Damning information about Ambrose is contained in the Frank Report coverage

Here are recent pictures of the children:

Let me know if I can be of any further help.

Yesterday. Ashley Deckert, Director of the Rhode Island Department of Children, Youth & Families, responded to Luthmann’s email.

Deckert wrote in reply to Luthmann

Thank you for your report, Mr. Luthmann. I would like to acknowledge receipt of your concern. Due to confidentiality, there is not more I can provide you in terms of addressing your immediate concerns, but please know we are taking your concerns seriously. 

Thank you very much.

Ashley Deckert, MSW, MA

Editor’s Note

It remains to be seen if Rhode Island will take steps to protect the three teenagers who seek a safe haven or work with the father to bring them back by force to him. 


NOTE: A Go Fund Me Page has been established to help Karen Riordan and her three children, Mia, Matthew, and Sawyer, reunite and achieve justice in her unequal fight against her well-funded ex-husband, Christopher Ambrose. Please donate and help this family.

  • Rhode Island should help that grandfather provide a safe refuge for those three teenagers. Unfortunately, some of the worst men posing as Connecticut lawyers and judges have equally nefarious political connections in Rhode Island.

    Will Ashley Deckert Director of Rhode Island Department of Children, Youth & Families respond as most bureaucrats do when threatened by the kind of politics that covers for blatant corruption?

    What does her conscience tell her to do? Is she a good person?

  • Mr. Luthmann you are a true hero! We are all so grateful for your work and dedication to our most precious children. This is a very big deal!

    • Thank you. But I am not a hero. The real heroes are the abused parents and children that get knocked down by this corrupt system. They are heroes because they keep getting back up and fighting. But they shouldn’t have to endure the pain and the scars. Hopefully, my work and the work of other dedicated journalists and activists will expose the corruption and end the pain.

    • “Keith Harmon Snow’s meticulously documented investigation into sex-trafficking of children by American judges is not to be missed. This scandal is one of the most important censored stories in our country today. I might not believe what Mr. Snow has written if I had not independently investigated two dozen cases not discussed in his article, and found ample evidence of the precise dynamics he lays out for us here. Anyone who says they care about child welfare needs to learn what is happening in family courts and take action until it is stopped. Once you start reading this exposé, you won’t be able to put it down.” Lundy Bancroft, Author of Why Does He Do That?

    • “People who demand neutrality in any situation are usually not neutral but in favor of the status quo.”

      Max Eastman

    • Chapter II. Proletarians and Communists:

      “… Abolition [Aufhebung] of the family! Even the most radical flare up at this infamous proposal of the Communists.

      On what foundation is the present family, the bourgeois family, based? On capital, on private gain. In its completely developed form, this family exists only among the bourgeoisie. But this state of things finds its complement in the practical absence of the family among the proletarians, and in public prostitution.

      The bourgeois family will vanish as a matter of course when its complement vanishes, and both will vanish with the vanishing of capital.

      Do you charge us with wanting to stop the exploitation of children by their parents? To this crime we plead guilty.

      But, you say, we destroy the most hallowed of relations, when we replace home education by social.

      And your education! Is not that also social, and determined by the social conditions under which you educate, by the intervention direct or indirect, of society, by means of schools, &c.? The Communists have not invented the intervention of society in education; they do but seek to alter the character of that intervention, and to rescue education from the influence of the ruling class.

      The bourgeois clap-trap about the family and education, about the hallowed co-relation of parents and child, becomes all the more disgusting, the more, by the action of Modern Industry, all the family ties among the proletarians are torn asunder, and their children transformed into simple articles of commerce and instruments of labour.

      But you Communists would introduce community of women, screams the bourgeoisie in chorus.

      The bourgeois sees his wife as a mere instrument of production. He hears that the instruments of production are to be exploited in common, and, naturally, can come to no other conclusion than that the lot of being common to all will likewise fall to the women.

      He has not even a suspicion that the real point aimed at is to do away with the status of women as mere instruments of production.

      For the rest, nothing is more ridiculous than the virtuous indignation of our bourgeois at the community of women which, they pretend, is to be openly and officially established by the Communists. The Communists have no need to introduce community of women; it has existed almost from time immemorial.

      Our bourgeois, not content with having wives and daughters of their proletarians at their disposal, not to speak of common prostitutes, take the greatest pleasure in seducing each other’s wives.

      Bourgeois marriage is, in reality, a system of wives in common and thus, at the most, what the Communists might possibly be reproached with is that they desire to introduce, in substitution for a hypocritically concealed, an openly legalised community of women. For the rest, it is self-evident that the abolition of the present system of production must bring with it the abolition of the community of women springing from that system, i.e., of prostitution both public and private.

      The Communists are further reproached with desiring to abolish countries and nationality. …”

  • Richard, just go on upwork and other freelancing sites. Share your education and credentials and advertise yourself as a ghost writer. you will make bank ghost writing for attorneys who don’t have the time to do it themselves. Many need an endless stream of content for their websites, and they pay very well for someone with a law degree to do the writing. You don’t have to forge a path destroying people’s reputations to make money writing.

    • The last thing I want to do is destroy. I would much rather build.

      Judge Weinstein recognized this issue at my sentencing when he specifically said in the Judgment that I could work for attorneys but not as an attorney. To date, I have approached everyone I know in the legal field for paralegal or ghostwriting work. They all come back with the same response: we can’t hire you because it’s a violation of Appellate Division Rules concerning disbarred attorneys.

      Weinstein knew that with my legal and political intelligence and experience, I could be dangerous to the profession and institutions. I know better than some journalists with decades of experience where to look for dirt in legal stories. For Family Court stories, for instance, the first thing I look for is discrepancies in the Court-approved GAL report and the attorney billing records.

      Would it be better for everyone if I were sitting behind a desk, ghostwriting, and collecting a paycheck? Probably. And Judge Weinstein, the wise old sage knew it. He wanted to give me an opportunity, but he also wanted to protect the legal profession.

      There’s an old adage, better to bring a dissident into the tent than to have him piss on it from the outside. Judge Weinstein showed me a kindness that no other lawyer or judge will honor.

      So, here you have a man on fire who has lost everything except his mind (because many say I lost it years ago). He’s not pissing on the tent. To paraphrase Nietzsche: My Words Are Dynamite!

  • As Dr. Bandy Lee has said- this isn’t a hard case.
    Kids don’t have to repeatedly prove they feel unsafe. They don’t have to prove every way they’ve been abused.
    Only in child trafficking cases is this warranted.
    And these kids and medical professionals have confirmed the allegations for years. Ambrose then brings targeted court appointed therapists (non MDs) to support his lies that mom is crazy.


    Stay In RI!!

    Never return to CT. Ever.

    • Dr Bandi Lee was fired from Yale for unethical behavior. The same type of unethical behavior she exhibits here.

      “On occasion psychiatrists are asked for an opinion about an individual who is in the light of public attention … a psychiatrist may share with the public his or her expertise about psychiatric issues in general,” the rule says. “However, it is unethical for a psychiatrist to offer a professional opinion unless he or she has conducted an examination and has been granted proper authorization for such a statement.”

      • So, would Bandy Lee have to personally interview Hitler in order to call him a psychopath?
        I think it would be medically unethical for a professional not to declare Hitler, or Stalin, or Vlad the Impaler a psychopath based solely on the factual record.
        Are you advocating that Holocaust denier doctors can hide behind medical ethics to deny atrocities?
        The fact that Bandy Lee doesn’t have to meet Christopher Ambrose to diagnose him as a psychopath speaks volumes.
        I’ve met many psychopaths. I’ve had conversations with Keith Raniere. He was very charming and personable. Most psychopaths are.

        • She can have a personal opinion about Hitler’s personality disorders, but she can’t make a professional diagnosis, because:

          “It is unethical for a psychiatrist to offer a professional opinion unless he or she has conducted an examination and has been granted proper authorization for such a statement.”

          • Any “profession” that use can use its rules to deny the Holocaust and other atrocities is not a profession. Any “rules” of said “profession” are without justification.

            A psychiatrist can offer a professional opinion that Hitler was a murderous psychopath absent a personal examination.

            Also, “examination” can mean clear factual/historical record. And “proper authorization” in the Hitler and Ambrose cases is reality itself. The first rule of medicine is DO NO HARM. Corollaries to that are STOP MASS MURDER and STOP CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE AND PEDOPHILIA.

          • Those are some mighty leaps of logic you were taking and they don’t land right at all. On what planet would it be denying the Holocaust if you refrained from “diagnosing” Hitler as anything?

          • Kind of like it’s unethical for a judge to make a decision to put a RO on Karen Ambrose, that Chris Ambrose wanted done, (but said it was on the children’s behalf ).. and the judge only hearing Chris Ambrose speak, and not hearing anything from the children or listening to anything at all they have to say?? that is kind of what you’re saying .. right? The judge gave his professional opinion without conducting any examination also!! That’s only fair to say .. correct!! You have to admit it when someone else is right!! So go ahead., I’m waiting on your response

          • We’re all supposed to “trust the science” now, 3:10 pm. Get in line and remember: Just obey and do as you are told. No questions are allowed, anymore.

        • @Richard, aside from the Ambrose case:

          Bandy was terminated for breaking the Goldwater Rule. That’s not accepted by the American Psychiatric Association nor Yale.

          Also, Yale had her in their malpractice insurance group plan. To me, this indicates they could smell a possible lawsuit.

          She claims it us her “duty to warn” when a public figure is a danger. She has lost two appeals.

          Is her interpretation of “duty to warn” too broad?

          • For all the readers, I’ll explain the rule.

            The Goldwater rule is Section 7 in the American Psychiatric Association’s Principles of Medical Ethics, which states that psychiatrists have a responsibility to participate in activities contributing to the improvement of the community and the betterment of public health, but they should not give a professional opinion about public figures whom they have not examined in person, and from whom they have not obtained consent to discuss their mental health in public statements. It is named after former US Senator and 1964 presidential nominee Barry Goldwater.

            You can understand how the APA would want to stay out of politics. You can pay 10 different hacks to say ten different things.

            In the current cycle, we’ve already heard that Biden has dementia, Trump has narcissistic personality disorder, Bobby Kennedy Jr is off his rocker, Vivek Ramaswamy has no qualms inciting political violence, and a host of other mental-based theories.

            The point of the Goldwater rule supports the professional ideal would be for the doctors to stay above the political fray.

            Hitler, Stalin, Pot Pot, Kim Jung Il, Vlad the Impaler, hell even Ronald Reagan are now historical figures and fair game. A psychiatrist can look at the factual record and determine if a person is a psychopath using the methodology Bandy Lee did. They have all these accepted tests with points and such.

            Chris Ambrose is not a political public figure. He is a public figure based upon his Hollywood connection and his incessant litigation. But he’s not that important in the big picture. He’s not a presidential candidate or even a senatorial or gubernatorial candidate. The psychiatry profession cannot be seen as being co-opted to sway an election.

            The Goldwater rule is very important and reflects on a potentially harmful political policy that was evident during the dark time in pre-Nazi Germany when a large numbers of Nazi party members were physicians. The plan was to recruit physicians and then leverage the fact that they were doctors for political purposes – in the case of the Nazis – genocide.

            Doctors are always tools for marketing. For years, doctors who wore their white coats up to the counter at Nathan’s on Coney Island would eat for free. It was good marketing because it sent the message that Nathan’s hot dogs were healthy because doctors were eating them. And a lot of this leveraging/marketing still occurs today.

            There’s a big difference between selling hot dogs and installing a psychopath in political office. The Goldwater rule is helpful because it takes this potent “gaslighting” potential off the table, particularly by calling it out as unethical when it occurs. But it still doesn’t stop political operatives from trying. There are a dozen pseudo-medical books about how Trump is batshit crazy.

            Bottom line here is Chris Ambrose does not fall under the Goldwater rule. Bandy Lee’s report should get in. Chris should go to a shrink and get his own report saying how sane he is. And Good luck on that!

          • @3:10pm: No, I do not believe it is unethical for a family court judge to make a decision on an issue presented before him when his decision was based on facts and hard evidence. There was solid proof that Karen told the kids to lie about abuse in hopes the court would flip custody to her. Coaching kids to lie against a parent is abuse. There is no point in listening to what the kids have to say in court when it is on record that the mother stated she had them lie about abuse. Karen did this to them. If she never taught them to tell heinous lies,
            she and they wouldn’t be in this predicament.

          • So do you believe the voice of the teens in making decisions about their lives needs not to be heard?

  • Pedophiles are people too. Dr Gardner provided guidance to us here. The kids and the mother overreact to this and need to be shown that pedophilia is common in every culture but America. This super Puritanism is denying a good father with ample means and a great deal of intelligence from educating his children. You take the good with the bad. As Dr Gardner guides us it is society hysteria that makes the problem not pedophilia.

    Cut this good father a break. Reunite him with his loved ones.

  • This is no one’s business but Christopher Ambrose. He has legal custody. Those brats better go back to him right away. He alone can make all decisions for them. Not their mom. Not this stupid blog. Not this Deckert woman. Not the kids themselves. They have no say until they reach 18.

    Rhode Island better watch their step. Connecticut is a sovereign state and the Connecticut Courts decided.

    They should arrest the owner of this shitty blog for interfering with the privacy rights of Mr. Ambrose. Enough is enough.

    • Whoever “they” are, should they arrest you, 10:48 pm?

      This is no one’s business but We the People. The Connecticut “family court” system has ignored state and federal laws since 1984.

      Your use of the term, “those brats” was your decision. He alone already made all decisions for them for three long years. Not their mom. Not any blog, website or documentary film maker, either. Look forward to the film to see what actually happened.

      You wrote, “Rhode Island better watch their step.” That looks like a threat.

      You wrote, “Connecticut is a sovereign state and the Connecticut Courts decided.”

      State governments can’t break laws.

    • Does sovereign state mean it’s ok to abuse children, mentally and sexually? If it does you are in the right place so you can get by with it and not be punished. It’s pretty clear why you want to live there. Do you ever pray for these “brats” to get out of your control and that you will get what’s coming to you in hell? I do every day and night. But maybe prayer is not allowed in a sovereign state…sounds about right. If you even knew how to pray I would guess it would be for you to get what you want and screw the “brats”.

    • If they are such brats why do you (Chris) want them back so bad? I know the answer to that and so does everyone else, you don’t fool anyone with half a brain.

  • Let’s hope Rhode island has their shit together. We need a safe harbor in New England. Connecticut, New York , New Jersey, Maine, and Vermont are pediphia heaven.

  • I love how Luthman pretends to be clutching his pearls over a 16-year-old sleeping with a 23-year-old, yet he also was outraged that he could get in trouble as a 40 year old man for having sex with a 14-year-old prostitute. He thinks age shouldn’t matter if it’s a sex worker. Please stop pretending to have a morality that you don’t actually possess. Everyone can see right through it.

    • Thanks for being such an avid reader of mine, Christopher.

      Yes, there is a distinction between the Anglo-American and the continental view of a woman’s prerogative of last resort. And that translates to age of consent and statutory rape in under Anglo-American law, which is slowly being adopted on the continent.

      In France, for example, there was no concept of “statutory rape” or “age of consent” until a few years ago. Prior to the amendment setting the age of consent at 15, consent could be accepted as legally meaningful for sexual relations at any age, including in cases of children having sex with adults, or between blood relations. This was only amended in 2021.

      The reason for the previous state of the French law was the belief that it was a woman’s prerogative to sell herself as a means of last resort, and that the law would not get in the way of the world’s oldest profession.

      I was never “outraged.” I just pointed to the difference in comparative law. But you should know. NYU Law is a good school. And you did work for the DNC, and then the young Latino boys charity. So you have experience in comparative law.

      Let’s look at Connecticut, where you live (for the time being). You talked about 16 year-olds and 23 year-olds in your house (with the used condoms on the floor to prove it). What about the 14 and 15 year-olds, or even younger? Fear not, we have your answer, Christopher. And it’s basically: “You’re fucked.”

      First degree sexual assault includes sexual intercourse (vaginal intercourse, oral or anal sex, or penetration, however slight) between a minor who is 12 or younger and a defendant who is more than two years older than the victim. This offense is a class A felony, which is punishable by a fine of up to $20,000, at least ten (and up to 25) years in prison, or both. (Ct. Gen. Stat. §§ 53a-35a, 53a-41, 53a-65, 53a-70 (2018).)

      Penetration…sexual penetration…multiple allegations…hmmm.

      Second degree sexual assault includes sexual intercourse between a minor who is 13, 14, or 15 and a defendant who is more than three years older than the victim. This offense is a class B felony, punishable by a fine of up to $15,000, at least one year (and up to 20 years) in prison, or both. (Ct. Gen. Stat. §§ 53a-35a, 53a-41, 53a-65, 53a-71 (2018).)

      14 and 15 with a 23 year old. One year mandatory minimum…hmmm.

      Fourth degree sexual assault includes sexual contact (without penetration) between a minor who is 12 or younger and a defendant who is more than two years older than the victim, or sexual contact between a minor who is 13, 14, or 15 and a defendant who is more than three years older than the victim. This offense is a class D felony, which is punishable by a fine of as much as $5,000, up to five years in prison, or both. (Ct. Gen. Stat. §§ 53a-35a, 53a-41, 53a-65, 53a-73a (2018).)

      Unwanted sexual touching…like on the penis…hmmm.

      Oh, and we haven’t even talked about the Feds yet. But don’t worry. Hire me as your prison consultant and I’ll do my best to help you get placed at FCI-Danbury. It’s a low, so you’ll be with a slew of other CHOMOs just like you. It’s not the worst place to spend the next 120-150 months. And the great part will be that your kid will be so close and still not come visit you.

      With good behavior, you’ll get out on a walker in 2035. With great behavior, the guards might promote you to the morgue.

      Hugs and kisses, Christopher.

      • Nah, Keith Raniere slept with Camila when she was 15. I wrote an article about comparative statutory rape laws. Our psychopathic friend, Christopher, is probably the only one who remembers. And he tries to twist it, like I endorsed pedophilia because I said that if Keith Raniere did what he did in France, it would not be a crime. That is not my opinion or my desire, that is a fact based upon the state of the French law then and even now.

        And who says “clutching his pearls” anyway? He deserved to get run out of Hollywood just for that.

        • I’m not Chris. Nor do I live or work in Hollywood.

          I am a long time reader of this blog from well before the Riordan story days and God forbid I actually have a working memory and can remember much of what I’ve read. You actually seem angry that I can remember things.

          You wrote about statutory rape laws in different countries, but I believe you also wrote about how it was a damn shame that a man who drove underage prostitutes across state lines was charged with sex trafficking minors. They shouldn’t count as minors if they are sex workers, you seemed to argue.

          Give me an effing break. Please don’t sit there acting like you are the morality police.

          • Yeah. That was Sam Walker. It was a damn shame that he was hit with “trafficking” and a Mann Act violation. He didn’t have sex with anyone. He didn’t engage in sexual abuse, penetration, or unwanted touching.


            He was an old guy that they threw in a car to drive people around and paid in cash.

            And that wasn’t my opinion. That was the opinion for a former US Attorney who actually spoke on Sam Walker’s behalf at his sentencing in front of Judge Vilardo in the Western District of New York.

            My comments were in the context of compassionate release. Sam Walker deserved compassion because there was no sexual contact and a minor role in the scheme. Judge Vilardo agreed.

            I’m not playing moral police. I’m talking facts. I’m saying that a scumbag who sexually abuses his own kids is not worthy of compassion. I can see why you are personally conflicted, Neil.

  • R.I. DCYF has a long patterned history of enabling and facilitating child trafficking, sexual abuse and general deprivation of human rights of children. They will NOT do a God-damned thing until they get their orders from O’Neil and Cuda.

    The DCYF is a highly politicized Department, chocked full of fundraising bundlers for majority power players. I know people on the inside, and they say it’s uglier than ever before, with political retribution for whistleblowers.

    This article is from five years ago, but “improvements” have been minimal.

    They DETEST local Investigative Journalists like Jim Hummel, Ted Nesi, Tim White, etc. Now they detest Frank Parlato and Richard Luthmann.

    Trust me, if there is one thing I know, it is Rhode Island: the powerful protect the powerful, thats the only order of business. Get out of line and they will try to bury you.

    • Hey Pilgrim, I don’t know much, but I do know one thing. If our buddy’s case goes federal, this may be a prison rape story in the making.

      Just staying on top of your favorite issue!

      • Ohhhh boy!!!! I cannot wait!

        I wonder what Ambrose will do:

        1. Will he pull a Richard Speck, and grow out his hair and take progesterone to grow breasts and enjoy it?
        2. Will he cry like a little bitch and do it begrudgingly?
        3. Will he prevent his own rape by “beating off” his attackers?

        What oh what will little Chrissy do?!?!?!

        • The only one likely to go to jail is Karen.

          “ I wonder what Riordan will do:

          1. Will she pull a Richard Speck, and cut her hair and take testosterone to grow a beard and enjoy it?
          2. Will she cry like a little bitch and do it begrudgingly?
          3. Will she prevent her own rape by “finger banging” her attackers?

          What oh what will little Karen do?!?!?!

          • Everyone sees through Chris’ bullshit. Everyone knows Chris is a vexatious litigant, and that most of his paperwork makes no sense. From last month:

            Judge Nieves: According to what I’ve read, the relief is for the court to issue an arrest warrant. I don’t have the jurisdiction to do that.

            Attorney Goulden: Oh, well. My client filled this out.

            Judge Nieves: I understand that that’s why I couldn’t understand now that you are here on his behalf.

            Chris has tried to get Karen arrested over 30 times, it appears from last count. He asks anyone who will listen. He’ll ask the lady behind the counter at the OTB to issue a ticket that says “ARREST KAREN.” Total psychopathic behavior.

            Attorney Goulden ran away from his crazy requests in front of Judge Nieves. Chris had to hire Needle Cuda – who are neck-deep in the CT Cash For Kids scheme to get him a result from Judge Steal O’Neill. But no one thinks that’s going to hold up. The word is that Ned Lamont heard about his mention in all of this and the folks at Day Pitney LLP got a call. I’m looking for additional corroboration. If you have it, send it along. CT has a press shield law. Your identity will be protected.

            My thought is that Chris is crazy and he has plenty of money. Why don’t these lawyers just try to get him civilly committed? Then they can chop up what’s left of his sizeable money in civil commitment litigation and they can cover up the Cash For Kids scheme. They can say Chris has become “sick.” One look at him, and everyone will agree.

            The divorce trough is basically empty, and it threatens to expose the dark underbelly of the CT Family Courts. The civil commitment trough is brimmingly full, with liquid assets, real estate, and regular Hollywood royalty checks.

            “We’re just going to lock Chris away for a while and take his money so that he can get the help he needs. Nothing is more important than your health. And he has lots of money, so he can buy lots of health and legal management of his affairs.”

            Plus, the CT court grifters can then point at Ambrose and say: “Pay your money, then be quiet until we tell you to pay us more.” It helps in collections – the natural order of things in CT Family Court. And Ambrose is a lawyer himself, so it shows that no one is above the Golden Rule. Why would Marianne Charles or Melissa Needle have to raise their blood pressure by even saying “Pay me my fucking money”? Hang Chris Ambrose on the hook at the entrance to the Fairfield County Courthouse and everyone will fall in line.

            It’s always good to make an example. Christopher Ambrose is the perfect one for the good of the CT Family Court system.

  • May God help and protect everyone working to expose the horrible secrets of the Connecticut family court system.

His work has been cited in hundreds of news outlets, like The New York Times, The Daily Mail, VICE News, CBS News, Fox News, New York Post, New York Daily News, Oxygen, Rolling Stone, People Magazine, The Sun, The Times of London, CBS Inside Edition, among many others in all five continents.

Parlato has been prominently featured on HBO’s docuseries “The Vow” and was the lead investigator and coordinating producer for Investigation Discovery’s “The Lost Women of NXIVM.” Parlato was also credited in the Starz docuseries "Seduced" for saving 'slave' women from being branded and escaping the sex-slave cult known as DOS.

Additionally, Parlato’s coverage of the group OneTaste, starting in 2018, helped spark an FBI investigation, which led to indictments of two of its leaders in 2023.

Parlato appeared on the Nancy Grace Show, Beyond the Headlines with Gretchen Carlson, Dr. Oz, American Greed, Dateline NBC, and NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt, where Parlato conducted the first-ever interview with Keith Raniere after his arrest. This was ironic, as many credit Parlato as one of the primary architects of his arrest and the cratering of the cult he founded.

Parlato is a consulting producer and appears in TNT's The Heiress and the Sex Cult, which premiered on May 22, 2022. Most recently, he consulted and appeared on Tubi's "Branded and Brainwashed: Inside NXIVM," which aired January, 2023.
