-Could you explain your situation a little more?Who told you that he was a confidential informant?
Please explain the circumstances.
A couple of men that were in prison told me that he was listed as the person that turned them in. Does that happen or am I being lied to? I do know he has been stopped by the police with drugs on his self and they let him go.
(He) is the father of my children. I am afraid that I wouldnt get a fair custody hearing if he (their father) is working for the police. I know that he doesnt get paid for what he does but when he is caught with drugs he is released. I dont want my children around him or myself for he is a drug user and abusive to me. I dont want my children growing up around him for I fear they will think that abuse is normal. I just want to get my kids and myself away from him and out of the state of NC. I want to do this right and legal for I dont want to lose my kids to him. He is a mean man to me and my kids. I just feel that he has the law on his side because he is an informant. I know the police wont release names of informants. I feel if we go to court they will favor him because he is turning drug users in. None of this is fair! I just want away from him and want my kids away from him. I am fearful for them and myself and I dont want to lose a custody battle to him. thank you for all of your help!
