Mikey Cardena was an abused child, I have the pictures and police reports to prove it. On Monday a McLean County judge will likely give custody back to the mom even though the abuse happened in her custody. This is the case the media has reported as the father took the boy to Massachusetts without permission. I believe Judge Hill wants to throw him in jail for not complying with her order to return his son. There is a legal case pending in Massachusetts.
The father, Michael, has spent most of his money trying to keep his son. The mom’s family isn’t limited by finances, so obviously she can bankrupt him.
These are the charges that got Mickey taken away from her. Amber’s then boyfriend is in jail. Even though meth was being manufactured in the house with young kids present, Amber didn’t get jail time.
Michael created the video below to show his son is thriving living with him. It was posted on Facebook until somebody who doesn’t want people to see the truth reported it to Facebook as “stealing intellectual property”:
Michael made the video, stealing property is absurd.
This is a sad case of doing what’s right for Mickey plays no part in the decision a judge is going to make.
Maybe judge Hill will watch the video, but I doubt it. According to people who know, the judge hasn’t allowed all the evidence to be heard.
Maybe Judge Hill wants to see another news clip of a screaming kid yanked from a parent.
Michael Cadena doesn’t have a clean record, but he did get clean in order to take care of his son. Amber didn’t until she was arrested.
Mikey is happy where he is. Thriving in Massachusetts sadly most likely won’t be enough for Judge Hill. We will find out on Monday.
