Last night Amber decided to show up at Mikey’s house with the police and take him. Armed with Judge Hill’s order giving her temporary custody, she succeeded. No Massachusetts court has given her permission to leave the state with Mikey, that could change today. Meanwhile, Michael Cadena is still in jail.
I wish the video below hadn’t stopped. Mikey was taken to another room and separated from the Cadena family and friends. I’m told he was screaming. Amber posted pictures on Facebook last night trying to show Mikey thrilled to be with her.
Sheriff Sandage informed me yesterday they will send a private prisoner transport to bring Michael Cardena back. The taxpayers of McLean County will pay that bill and for the cost of housing him in the county Jail for 6 months.
Meanwhile with an extensive arrest record for more than just meth manufacturing, Amber walks around only on probation. You can look up her history here: https://webapp.mcleancountyil.gov/webapps/PublicAccess/PubAC_SearchCriminal.aspx
At the same link look up Jacob C Laws – 10 years for meth production. Amber’s co-defendant only got 3.
Look up Shawn Michael Castleman – 18 years.
Melysa Nicole Coffin – 4 years
Even with previous guilty pleas for cannabis manufacturer/delivery, Amber gets probation. Keep in mind the charges for endangering her children were dropped.
The lady in the video is a friend of the family. Mikey clearly says he doesn’t want to stay at “her” house.
