Here's what the television station put out on their website:
Dawson was arrested and charged with two felony counts of possession of a controlled substance and the misdemeanor of unlawful use of drug paraphernalia.
Don't know if the vehicle was running or not - it was 3 am, though.
I think he did like 30 days and the rest on probation - he is a felon, though.
No, he was no longer on probation.
Thanks. I was kind of thinking that. Just thought maybe being a 'felon' would make things worse for him.
It's a catch 22 for me. He's a slimeball - whole family is. But my daughter sucks at choosing men and one she chose a couple of years ago hurt my grandson, and they painted her with the same brush. He's still awaiting trial, she wanted to spare my grandson more testifying (he was 5 at the time) so she pled to child endangerment. Just got probation, but it sucks because its a felony. Her only crime was poor choices in men. I told her to become a nun, lol! Forget men.
Anyway, I had more contact with my grandkids than the father did, but they (CPS) did not care. I no longer believe they care about the 'best interest'. They gave them to that family and they have gone from one 'mother' to another. I tell them they have one mother. They can have stepmothers, but they only have one mother. And she loves them.
Now, about this long story. I have been kissing this jerks you know what for a year now and like my attorney said.....he doesn't want the kids, if I play my cards right I will get them when I want them. She was right. I can pretty much get them when I want (the custody I fought for is ridiculous hours - but it was easy to prove constant interaction with them before the situation, and that it would be a detriment to refuse them).
If he goes to jail, I think the custody thing says the mother gets them, but I'm sure his family will fight that tooth and nail. They don't even want her to see them now, and it is none of their business. I'm afraid if he goes to jail they will go back to only honoring the hours on the custody.
Yet he deserves to be in jail.
Sorry to talk your ear off. I'm just at my wits end. This has been going on since June of 2011!!!! And the ex-boyfriend is not scheduled for trail until September and even that may get changed - it's been rescheduled 7 times now.
