Husband was verbally (still is), physically & sexually abusive. Has had a mistress for over five years & her child is rumored to be his. Three children: male 21; female 17; female 14. He denies everything & two oldest support him; not because they believe him but because he has convinced them their mother deserved everything she got. He signs the son's paychecks & buys the daughter anything she wants. He has even gone so far as to offer her money to hurt her mother. The youngest is terrified of her father. She will visit or go out to dinner with him but not alone. Refuses to sleep over at his house. Today a judge ruled she MUST spend every other weekend with him. She is scared to death. Judge rumored can be bought. Father known to pay for favors. Judge & father are friends.
