A seven-year-old boy was at the center of a Roanoke, VA.
courtroom drama yesterday when he challenged a court ruling
over who should have custody of him.
The boy has a history of being beaten by his parents and the
judge initially awarded custody to his aunt, in keeping with
child custody law and regulations requiring that family
unity be maintained to the degree possible.
The boy surprised the court when he proclaimed that his aunt
beat him more than his parents and he adamantly refused to
live with her. When the judge then suggested that he live
with his grandparents, The boy cried out that they also beat
him. After considering the remainder of the immediate family
and learning that domestic violence was apparently a way of
life among them, the judge took the unprecedented step of
allowing the boy to propose who should have custody of him.
After two recesses to check legal references and confer with
child welfare officials, the judge granted temporary custody
to the Washington Redskins Football team, whom the boy
firmly believes are not capable of beating anyone.
