MID MICHIGAN (WJRT) – (06/22/06)–There were new developments Thursday in the case of Katherine Lester. The Mid-Michigan teen flew halfway around the world two weeks ago to meet with a Palestinian man she met on MySpace.com.
Thursday her mother’s attorney asked a judge to rescind a decision made Monday in which her father was granted temporary custody.
That petition was filed in Tuscola County’s Family Division of Judicial Court Thursday morning.
The judge in the case, Judge W. Wallace Kent, denied the petition, and she will remain with her father until a hearing is scheduled.
In the petition, Lester’s mother’s attorney states numerous reasons of why she should be returned to the custody of her mother.
One of those reasons is an interview ABC12’s Bill Harris had with Lester, her father and stepmother.
Am I just dense? Because I don’t remember any article mentioning her parents were divorced. Not that it matters. But if this situation was a television show I’d turn it off for being too corny.
