The problem is that the sister out of state has refused to do an affidavit for us because she's afraid of losing her children because this case deals with the plaintiff viewing child porn and photographing her little girl.
These are our daughters, and the youngest is bent on us losing this case and we know went down to harrass our oldest until she gives in...it could endanger her with felony charges if she says what we know he needs her to say...and we would not be surprised if the affidavit isn't completely truthful.
Can we go after plaintiff or his councel for witness tampering if they are trying to get her to coooperate against her wishes? Harass her into it?
BTW, this case has been ongoing for 18 months now and the judge said she is getting tired of the delays.
We think our youngest daughter is going to "influence" our oldest. But we'll see.
She has to apear if subpoena'd and she lives in another state?
