The Stanley Family had to endure yet another hearing (reportedly still not the last) with DHS in Juvenile Court which was scheduled to convene at 8:30 Wednesday morning April 15, 2015. Q Byrum Hurst, legal counsel to Hal and Michelle Stanley, confirmed that yes, it is true that DHS was asking Judge Naramore to order administration of involuntary immunizations to the Stanley Children. Judge Naramore denied that DHS request, much to the relief of parents Hal and Michelle Stanley.
However another DHS request was approved, one that imposes a State psychologist into the Stanley home for 20 hours per week (4 hours per day, 5 days per week). The exact nature of what this DHS “specialist” will be doing in the Stanley home for all that time is unclear. Though the seven minor Stanley children are now back home with their parents, DHS employees remain free to come and go at will to the private residence, however often they wish and without notice, intruding as if DHS owned the place. Furthermore, the homeschooling parents are compelled to drive children to Lakeside School each school day, and to pick them up each afternoon when school is over. DHS control remains in effect as the parents try to cope with onerous DHS rules and regulations, similar to a status as DHS foster parents to their own children.
In a behind-the-building brief interview Judge Naramore did explicitly confirm that THERE IS NO GAG ORDER pertaining to the Stanley case. There is therefore, no gag order impediment to providing the information sought from the Sheriff’s Office in a Freedom of Information (FOIA) Request submitted on April 13, 2015. (see attached)
