A man of Chicago, Illinois, was arrested after his daughter falsely accused him of sexually assaulting her.
After a long investigation, it was discovered that the child’s mother forced her to lie about being sexually abused by her father.
The incident took place after the couple divorced and the father won full custody of his daughter. The mother was ordered to pay child support.
The woman failed to pay child support and she eventually owed $50,000.
The mother then convinced her daughter to accuse her father of molesting her in hopes that the allegations would help her gain custody and stop her child support order.
“The father faced wrongful incarceration and almost lost his relationship with his daughter,” said attorney Jeffery M. Leving.
A judge ruled that the mother could not contact her daughter because of her attempt to manipulate her.
Even after the judge’s order, the mother remained in contact with her daughter, urging the girl to report false allegations of physical and sexual abuse to the Department of Children and Families.
Due to the repeated violations of the court order, the judge sent the woman to jail.
The child is now in the custody of her father.
