I am being sued for child abduction in a Federal Court because I removed a little boy from his fathers custody after I found out he was physically and mentally abusing the child.

My name is Charlie. My family and I lived next door to a single father and his young son for a couple of years. Our families became very close over many years. His son and my son became, and still are, good friends. One night this little boy sent a text to my son saying that his dad had hit him in the back of the head with a bible and had his handgun out, waiving it around and threatening to kill himself in front of his son. My son and I went over to their house to try and difuse the situation. The little boy begged me to take him home with me. I told him that I would go inside with him and if i didn't like what i heard that we would go from there. I stood at the bottom of the stairs while the little boy walked up to talk to his dad. His dad immediately ripped into him. He then said something to his son that i will NEVER be able to forget. He told his son, I should strip you naked and beat you. I walked up the stairs and told the little boy to get in my van and lock the doors. I called 911 and told them what happened and asked them to meet me at my house. I am now being sued by the father for child abduction in a Federal Court and have no money to defend myself. I reached out to the one person in my family that had the means to help me cover my initial retainer but have no way to repay that debt or pay for additional costs associated with my case. My wife is disabled and we have two kids of our own so we are living paycheck to paycheck. I am not looking for a hand out, but a hand up. I do not regret my actions that day, and no matter what the consequences are to me, I would do it again if I felt that a childs life was in danger.

God Bless
