WOW… The poor kids…
A judge ordered three Bloomfield Hills kids to go to lunch with their father and ended up in a juvenile detention facility.
After refusing, the judge ordered the children have spent the last two weeks locked up at Children’s Village because they chose not to spend time with their father.
“I felt like I was watching them be executed,” said Maya Tsimhoni.
The Tsimhoni family was in Oakland County’s family court for a hearing on supervised parenting time when Judge Lisa Gorcyca took matters into her own hands.
June 24 court transcripts showed how upset the judge was. She ordered the Tsimhoni kids ages 14,10 and 9 to have a “healthy relationship” with their father.
She criticized them for avoiding him and even compared them to Charles Manson and his cult. Gorcyca then ordered the children to apologize and have a nice lunch with their dad.
When they refused, Gorcyca held them in contempt and had each child hauled off to Children’s Village’s juvenile hall, until they are 18 years old.
“No matter how bad the divorce gets, I think the court should not punish the kids for that,” Tsimhoni said.
Tsimhoni admits the last five years have not been easy in and out of court, a messy divorce, allegations of parental kidnapping and alienation.
Her son at one point even tried to explain to the judge why he didn’t want to spend time with his dad.
