Father Arrested for Threatening Baby Snatchers
February 23, 2010 permalink
In Indiana Dale R Stephenson has been arrested for defending his family. At least he escaped the death penalty administered to others such as Bryan S Russell and Gene Velasquez for doing the same. The law expects parents to act submissively toward authorities taking their children.
Police: Winchester man threatened to kill officials
WINCHESTER -- A Winchester man has been accused of threatening to kill authorities who removed an infant girl from his custody.
Dale R. Stephenson, 21, 602 Short St., is charged with intimidation, a Class D felony carrying a standard 18-month prison term.
According to court documents, Stephenson approached a Randolph County office of Child Protective Services worker last Thursday and indicated he intended to bring a shotgun to a court hearing set later that day and "shoot the people that had caused all of this."
The documents indicate a two-month-old infant had on Wednesday been removed from the custody of Stephenson and her mother pending completion of an investigation.
Stephenson was arrested a few hours after making the alleged threat and remained in the Randolph County jail Monday under a $25,000 bond. An initial hearing is set for Friday in Randolph Circuit Court.
The Winchester man was charged with battery in August 2008. A change-of-plea hearing in that case is set for April 9 in Randolph Superior Court.
