Residing with Dad. Ultimately, the child was ordered to stay with her father. Additional charges were considered against the mother. "When viewed as a whole, the harm caused to this child by her mother was significant," Justice Russell stated.
Abusive Behaviors. Justice Russell explained in her written judgement that in the end, the abusive parent was in fact, the mother. "On any view, the repeated invasive intimate examinations were in themselves abusive," she said.
Vulnerable Child. She went on to say, "The little girl is a young and vulnerable child whose first few years of life were blighted by her mother's irrational, abusive and harmful behavior."
Restraining Order. Due to the nature of the case, the courts decided to go so far as to deny the mother complete access to the child going forward. She was ordered to stay away from her daughter completely.
No Contact. Justice Russell explained, "the courts can and should consider ordering no contact when the child's welfare and safety demand it."
Begin to Heal. After the assessment, the little girl has been returned to her father with no further relationship allowed with her mother. They are hoping she can begin to heal from the psychological and physical abuse she endured during the last two years.
Considering Charges. As she continues to build a new life with her father, officials have been continuing to review the case. They will be considering pressing additional charges against the mother for her false accusations.
