Haley drops effort to extradite Dusten Brown from Oklahoma in Veronica case

Trace will be a guest discussing this case on Sunday night
By Trace A. DeMeyer

South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley is dropping her request to extradite Dusten Brown, the biological father of Ronnie Brown, the little Cherokee girl placed in a private adoption which is a clear violation of the Indian Child Welfare Act.
Despite this, Dusten could still face a charge of custodial interference.
Dusten Brown had been scheduled to appear Thursday in an Oklahoma county court to face extradition to South Carolina. Brown was charged in August with custodial interference for failing to hand over 4-year-old Veronica to adoptive parents, Matt and Melanie Capobianco of James Island, S.C.
Last Monday Brown handed over his daughter to the Capobiancos after the Oklahoma Supreme Court lifted an emergency stay that had kept Veronica in Oklahoma. There have been no sightings of the Capobiancos and Veronica on James Island and no word on when they might return.
Brown of Nowata, Okla., could still face the charge if he ever goes to South Carolina. This could prevent him from visiting his daughter if the Capobiancos would even allow it.

The Cherokee Nation released this statement:
“We are pleased that Governor Haley has withdrawn her request for extradition and see this as a step in the right direction for all involved.”  -Todd Hembree, Cherokee Nation Attorney General

ADOPTION TRUTH

As the single largest unregulated industry in the United States, adoption is viewed as a benevolent action that results in the formation of “forever families.”
The truth is that it is a very lucrative business with a known sales pitch. With profits last estimated at over $1.44 billion dollars a year, mothers who consider adoption for their babies need to be very aware that all of this promotion clouds the facts and only though independent research can they get an accurate account of what life might be like for both them and their child after signing the adoption paperwork.

Our Fault? (no)
