My first trial occurred in Family Court after my daughters’ mother (Ms. Anderson) filed an ex parte Order for Protection (OFP). The Latin term, ex parte, means, “in the interest of one side only.” She filed for an OFP accusing me of abusing our three little girls. Family Court has the lowest burden of proof within the judicial system. She needed to prove her allegations by a preponderance of the evidence, meaning a little more evidence than not. She failed to do so (because she fabricated the allegations), and the Court dismissed the OFP on March 4, 2022.

The second trial occurred within Criminal Court. The day after I exposed corrupt CPS investigator, Hirat Muse, in an emergency protection hearing, Hennepin County tried to railroad me by issuing a criminal complaint and a warrant for my arrest. I requested a speedy trial by jury. After five days of the State presenting their case, I was found not guilty on July 22, 2023.

The Juvenile Court suspended hearings until the conclusion of the Criminal Trial. Despite exposing the lies of the State for a second time during the criminal proceedings, the Department of Human Services (CPS) still tried to terminate my parental rights (TPR) in a third trial. Although a clear violation of res judicata (trying a party multiple times for the same allegations), Judge Francis Magill forced my children and me to suffer through another six months of trial. On January 13, 2023, the Court found the State did not prove their allegations and dismissed the TPR case.

Ms. Anderson testified in Juvenile Trial that she would not interfere with a Court Order granting me parenting time, but after the dismissal of the TPR case, she did just that. She lied to the children’s school administration, withheld them from school, and refused to allow me to pick them up. She forced us into a fourth trial. This one will determine custody.
