AK OCS and AK Courts have done everything possible to destroy the bond between Jessica Pleasant and her son Seth, and they have failed. He will soon be 18-years-old and able to determine where he wants to live after all the drama imposed by AK social workers and judges.

Jessica Pleasant is a Disabled US ARMY Veteran who has survived the corrupt Alaska Court System and Office of Children’s Services misfit application of Child in Need of Protection laws. Being trained as a paralegal, Pleasant recognized every distortion of the law applied in the assault upon her by her ex-husband and father of her son, as he weaponized the system.

That’s what many Alaskans now expect.

Despite Exacerbated Health Challenges, Pleasant has Lived to Tell the Story

The State of Alaska and its courts victimize the Alaskan population more than they provide justice, began Pleasant. Malfeasance and misfeasance trap Alaska citizens by interloping in family affairs, causing unjust permanent legal harm to families. Many parents are victimized by Intervention in domestic relations of families in distress, by corrupt and incompetent social workers of Alaska’s Office of Children Services. This system chews children up and spits them out broken. Mangled. 

Providing outstanding accommodations in Eagle River since 1991

I believe Seth has survived, but the story of what he experienced continues until this day. It has been a sordid ordeal, and must be known, continued Pleasant. Other Alaskans facing similar crisis in their lives–with threats and intimidation by OCS workers enabled by our court system–need to know what to expect when their family is in crisis and children are brokered hostages.

Sloppy Administrative Work

Three Alaska women share the name of Jessica Pleasant and Jessica Pleasants. By not identifying the accurate Jessica, State workers played a game of telephone; 1) OCS rejected agency principles and duties, 2) misinformation from other cases was assigned to this former Tennessee resident, 3) OCS officer Billy Lemon ignored threat of violence against Pleasant when her ex-husband stated in an email: “Would you rather me hit you or the car?”

I was holding my breath in court, continued Pleasant. I was hand clasped and head down praying Lemon would not turn on me for reporting abuses done to me, my son, and others. Lemon changed everything he had promised in that home visit–before he realized I had an attorney. His under oath stutter was the tell that Lemon was lying purposefully.

Pleasant’s story is extensive, making her one of a growing number of Alaskans who are willing to come forward to reject Alaska’s incompetent and corrupt justice system.

Alaska OCS Crisis; Parents are Pursuing Accountability

Seth’s step-mother was the only present party to accuse Pleasant of a bruise placed on Pleasant’s son by the step-mother, continued Pleasant. Judge Yvonne Lamoureux did nothing to aid Pleasant receiving a copy of the picture of the bruise to prove it was the step-mother that bruised her son. After this injustice, Pleasant requested the photo for the third time, but Lamoureux denied her a copy because it had already been adjudicated. Still to this day Pleasant has never seen the picture since Lamoureux shook the picture on the ex-husband’s cellphone in Pleasant’s face in open court.

From Seth’s doctor’s report, “Per dad step mom bruised son, bio mom arrested.”

This fraud led to final exoneration of Pleasant years too late, with OCS overturning charges of guilt when forced to answer an appeal. Craftily, OCS overturned the false charges, telling Pleasant there was no need for an appeal–that would have exposed OCS duplicity.

THIS Jessica Pleasant has an associate degree in paralegal studies, with mandated reporter status. When these injustices occurred, she arrived as a victim inside of the system she had been trained to respect. As a professional, Pleasant began documenting the experience for future exposure of the many routinely illegal abuses being inflicted upon Alaskans by our third-rate State government.

State of Alaska Office of Children’s Services is enabled by the courts to exploit children.

Criminals Always Attack when the Target is Most Vulnerable 

While recovering from a 15% EF congestive heart failure, Pleasant’s ex-husband arrived in Alaska, to bring the chaos she had tried to escape in Tennessee to her doorstep here. Pleasant says he manipulated Judge Lamoureux, of the 3rd Judicial District in Anchorage, into thinking he was afraid of Pleasant.

Poor thing came all the way to Alaska because he was afraid, and Lamoureux apparently believed it.

Accusations of abuse by Pleasant were absurd. Pleasant is 5 foot tall; her son was already larger than her by 5th grade. She had suffered a spinal cord injury from active-duty military service that led to partial paralysis and required cervical fusion. In 2016, at the age of 33, she went into congestive heart failure. Although no longer together, her X-husband continued physically abusing her in Alaska. His games served as domestic violence by proxy–harassing her at what might have been her death bed—an apparent ploy to claim victimhood himself.

Process is the Punishment

While Pleasant survived that violence against her person, she has since succumbed to emotional beatings by the State of Alaska. She is telling her story to reveal one aspect of the Corrupt Alaska Courts and will continue working to inform Alaskans of other practices and rulings.

Beatings will continue Until Morale Improves

For background, Pleasant is no shrinking violet: She made the first female rushing touchdown in a male high school varsity football game. News of this historic achievement was announced on the Paul Harvey Show in September 1998. Her name is mentioned in books, like Teenage Rebels by Dawson Barrett. This is why Alaska’s slandering of Pleasant is not some joke the State can brush off when the witness tampering of her son ends at 18 years old.

Seth is 17 now and he too is a survivor, although he was awarded to his father’s primary residence, he spends most his time with his mother.

Seth was removed by the State from a three adult and one child home to his father’s home with two adults and three other children. The stepmother has taken over Seth’s medical care and created a false medical history to Orion Behavioral Health. Orion continues to ignore Pleasant’s right to communicate with the office about Seth’s medical record. Pleasant has retained her parental rights to be a part of her son’s school and medical decisions.

But this cannot last forever. Seth is old enough now to understand what has happened and who caused the chaos in his life.

Judge Lamoureux was informed that the stepmother has all three of her children on Social Security Disability. As soon as Seth arrived in his father’s home the stepmother began contributing the identical symptoms to Seth. These symptoms already documented in her three children’s health history, placing all three on disability. Pleasant questioned the possibility that all three children would be disabled and asked if this was not Munchausen syndrome by proxy (MSP) — a psychological disorder marked by attention-seeking behavior by a caregiver through those who are in their care. Pleasants believes Orion Behavioral Health is the enabler of this dysfunction.

Munchausen syndrome by proxy

An Anchorage School District evaluation upon arrival in Alaska, concluded Seth has no learning disabilities. To the contrary, Seth is among the top academic students in his high school.

Lamoureux would not consider Pleasant’s concerns that her ex-husband was attempting to stigmatize Seth with a false disability. The ex-husband affirmed before Lamoureux that all children are on social security for disability but this kind of fraud has been normalized by the State of Alaska.

Why Alaska Courts Suck: Bumpkins Rule

To the Victors Go the Spoils

In her custody order Judge Lamoureux ruled Pleasant must pay child support and Permanent Fund Dividends to her ex-husband. Pleasant says she had hoped to save those monies to help Seth launch his life into adulthood. Every year the father promises to use the PFD to purchase a safe car for Seth. Instead, most of Seth’s monies have been withheld and spent by the step-mother, who is presently receiving all the money.

After all, Dad has three kids now…

After filing a Request for Reconsideration—pointing Lamoureux directly to the “per dad” medical note–Lamoureux retaliated. Now Child Support goes directly to the step-mother, who was not part of the custody agreement at all. Pleasant has found other victims that say SOA child support is enforcing elements not mentioned in their court orders, too. When these people appeal for an answer, child support releases a general letter declaring their records are correct based on the order–leaving citizens dumbfounded.

But our overwhelmed courts don’t worry about this over their 3-day weekends.

Attorney Hank Graper would not order a third police report from the last attempt by Pleasant’s ex-husband to have her imprisoned. That police report proved the police realized the ex-husband was abusing Pleasant through the officers and judicial system. Pleasant’s attorneys refused to produce to the Anchorage District Attorney a copy of the Tennessee Long-term Protection Order that protected Pleasant and her son from her ex-husband.

That’s how our Alaska Court System rolls; selective justice according to the mood of any particular judge on any given day. When Judge Lamoureux learned of the Tennessee Protection Order and demanded to see it, the custody case law firm denied turning over this exculpatory evidence to the Court. Lamoureux displayed arrogance toward Pleasant, dismissing the Tennessee protection order that also involved a minor.

According to Pleasant, her ex-husband ruined his first Christmas with his son after two years of separation, by having Pleasant served an already denied temporary protection order on Christmas Day 2017. Only days before service, the ex-husband accepted the wrapped presents Pleasant and her mother purchased for the father to have something to open with Seth. At the same time her ex-husband withheld the news of the protection order–clearly showing no signs of fear–as he repeatedly visited Pleasant’s home immediately after being denied his unnecessary request for a temporary protection order. 

It was all hateful theater. On that Christmas Day—the ex-husband was allowed to pick up his son anytime. Spending nearly the whole weekend before Christmas with their son, the ex-husband lied to police that Christmas Day would be the only time Pleasant could be served without their son present. The ex-husband claimed Pleasant would endanger their son if he was present at the police service of the order. As a coward might do, Seth’s father returned the son just a mere hour after his mother received the joke of a service of a denied protection order.

What a Tangled Web We Weave…

The son is no fool and recognized his own issues with the system, catching OCS officer Amanda West lying to Pleasant that Seth had said he was not afraid of his step-mother. Seth was hostage to the corrupt system and expressed defeat when he saw no  help on the horizon. Seth was arbitrarily and capriciously removed by a court easily swayed by outside interlopers.

As a coward might also project, the father initiated a number of acts to create fear in his son that he would never be allowed to see him again. Repeatedly Judge Lamoureux had admonished the father for doing so. But his failings as a man and father didn’t matter to Lamoureux.

Alaska’s Caseview online revealed that Judge Lamoureax had been the judge over the step-mother’s divorce. If exposed, Lamoureux would be known to have placed four children in an abusive home.

Challenges Of Mental Illness: Tell me who’s crazy… the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services!

Ah, the Soap Opera that is our State Government!

This step-mother is the only person who claimed to have seen Pleasant injure her child, but in Alaska judges always cover for each other and the Appellate court stood by this not being a conflict of interest for the judge to again hear a case with this woman. 

I was fighting not to be a victim, declared Pleasant. But my physicians at the Veteran Affair’s clinics said recovery from heart failure was reversing. Before Lamoureux’s disastrous decisions, the Major at JBER, acting as my cardiologist, said I was his “miracle patient”. The State of Alaska and its judicial system caused reversal of all of my healing—my physicians said continued fighting for my innocence was going to kill me.

Due to what she feels was horrible legal representation, Pleasant had to redirect her efforts. Pleasant and her mother were deceived by her attorneys and lost $15,000 in legal services. All of her attorneys ignored Pleasant’s directions to provide the Tennessee protection order to the custody and criminal court of the Municipality of Anchorage. All rejected ordering the third police report. The prosecutors had the third arrest denied for prosecution and yet continued prosecuting the earlier abusive arrests.

Demise of the FOURTH ESTATE

Specializing in Selective Justice

Imagine this, said Pleasant: According to Lamoureux’s final verbal court order in my proceeding, Lamoureux stated she believes women reporting being stalked automatically have an unsafe home. I submit this is a dangerous precedence to set. Anyone unfortunate enough to have this judge in a domestic case must realize Lamoureux believes a child is safer with an abusive stalking parent because the abused parent would no longer be stalked by the ex if she didn’t have the kids! Anyone who claims their home is being stalked is therefore automatically claiming their home is unsafe and unsafe for children. 

By this standard, a parent who reports the other parent is stalking them may automatically lose their children to OCS–or to the offending parent!

Finding a Way to Heal

Pleasant began to heal emotionally by directing her energies into research and documentation of information for others who may avoid similar damage from OCS and Alaska Courts. In 2019, Pleasant began a social media presence to raise awareness of the way the State of Alaska is damaging distressed families. She started an online blog listing every Appellate court case involving OCS and the State of Alaska to identify the dimension of OCS involvement and trends of harm done to Alaskan families entangled in the agency and the courts.

Mother and son have adapted to limitations placed on their interactions by the State. It impacted the mental health of the whole family, while many ignored professional medical records and evaluative tests documenting the damage done to the son by his father. The state impacted her son’s education, and trust in the judicial and executive branch. Pleasant must strive to help her son learn in positive ways from this terrible experience.

Seth must also learn he is not the only Alaskan harmed by a parent weaponizing state government and our courts. 

I have Seth four days per week; Tuesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, explained Pleasant. His father gets him the other times plus the last weekend of every month. The last week of a month I have our son Tuesday and Thursday. I still pay 100% child support to the step-mother.

The father apparently doesn’t choose to be accountable for how that money is spent.

Alaska/USA descending into 3rd World Banana Republic

Seth has repeatedly asked OCS to return him to his home. I closed on a house purchase just days before his father began the cycle of arrests, said Pleasant. His father was not happy Pleasant was moving into a home with her new boyfriend while her ex-husband assumed incorrectly that he would be paying for the house. Pleasant has enjoyed her financial independence after years of financial abuse. She was determined to care for herself and her son regardless.

 At 18 years old, regardless of social security status, Seth has declared he would rather live with his mother and will be doing that as soon as he is not bound by this flawed and abusive court order. 

It upset Seth’s father to see my life coming together, continued Pleasant. He assumed I needed his money to buy my son’s home. Unlike the financial abuse in the past, Pleasant is responsible with her money–she never demanded or reported her ex-husband for child support hoping her ex-husband would figure his life out. Now the State has placed a lien on her son’s home. 

Pleasant’s biggest fear is that the dysfunctional family Seth is required to endure might create artificial disability by association: Seth is a smart guy. My goal is to have him be set up with a car and something to give him some comfort as he decides what to do with his life. Instead, my ex has schemed to take whatever he can get. Child support has automatically placed a lien on our new home.. Now this home will basically belong to the woman who knows how to work the system. She knew what she was doing when she gave doctors a false medical history, to join my son with all three of her children on Social Security Disability.

Mother and son visited Anchorage parks where Seth worked with the Anchorage Parks and Recreation youth program this past summer. Mother and son continue an unbreakable bond, a bond the State of Alaska cannot break, no matter how they try.

I am so proud of Seth, concluded Pleasant. He will be greater than both his parents. He has developed an interest in law, law enforcement and emergency services. He has a mind that can make great change. I once stood in the bright lights of history, but someday I want to live in Seth’s shadow. And I believe someday I will.

Seth is a survivor.

4 thoughts on “How Alaska Courts FURTHER Damage Children In Broken Families”

  1. There are so many lies in this article that it should’ve been gone over and asked about before it was published. I have seen all the court papers that disprove 99% of what’s written in this, including what was said in court. I guess it’s a good thing that not a lot of people reads what this guy writes, but with this article alone, it shows that there is no research done.

  2. For one, Jessica thought it was all right to keep on shoving her husband into a car multiple times because he said he would have a female roommate if he had to when he moved out of her house. That is, where would you rather hit you or the car comes from.

    Second, her name did not get confused with somebody else that has the same name. The police go off of Social Security numbers, as well as does the court and Ocs.

    Third, the ex-husband did have a restraining order put against him because he said he was gonna take everything he bought and burn it because he was tired of being hit and abused by her. The grandmother offered a ticket to bring the father up here so he could be near his son. But after staying in the same house as the mother for a month and a half being screamed at and cussed and abused in front of the son got old and the father had to call the police and the police told him his best bet was to move out and find his own place which is what he did.

    And as for weaponizIng the court system She is the only one that done that if you look on Courtview. When one thing didn’t go her way, she filed something else saying she was being stalked. And this came after the husband’s workmate was arrested for murdering multiple native women. Every time she filed of course the ex-husband had to file a reply so when you talk about weaponization the court system do your research.

    None of the children or the ex-husband draw social Security so that’s another lie. And the stepmother did not take over the medical care. The father still does that stepmother took him to some appointments with the ex-husband, the stepmother is only authorized to conduct the appointments if need be.

    The author had a restraining order put against her, because for some reason she thought it would be good to write her husband over and over about having multiple sexual partners even after he told her to stop writing.

    And then the author decided to tell their son that his dad is having them stalked.

    The first incident which happened at a local hospital was the stepmother, took the child to the hospital to look at a healing, cut on his hand because he slipped down down the stairs. The author showed up and decided to start screaming at the stepmother, who was only the father‘s girlfriend at the time. The author then grabbed her son, and tried to drag him to his feet, while the stepmother sat there, with her arm around him protecting him. Security for the hospital was dispatched and took the child to the emergency room for a well child check. Upon the doctor seeing Seth the biological mother, decided to call the hospital and said her son was being abused to look at his back. After the biological mother had threw her cane at the stepmother, and the child was taken to the emergency room. The doctors found that the father’s home was a safe home because of the actions that was caught on the video camera by Security. The father was finally able to leave work and arrived at the hospital, just as the biological mother was leaving and she turned around and started screaming at the father, which is a violation of restraining order, which was a no contact order. As for the medical records, it is done by voice so that is not what was said in the appointment.

    With this incident, she went back to jail. Even with the first restraining order, the mother thought it was the best idea to walk up to the father’s car and talk to him about her mother surgery, which shows she did not care about a no contact order that the father had put in place.

    So comes time for a restraining order for the child and before court the mother decided to text the child and tell him what happened that she didn’t do it and that I didn’t want her to see him again which was taken to court. This was the witness tampering that was done, which was on her not the father.

    This is why it’s important. That research is done before writing a story or even publishing a story that you do not know the facts of which all you had to do was research at the courthouse, and you would find that this article is mostly lies. Ask the mother for proof of her story, because I guarantee the father has the proof as does the courthouse.

  3. And as for the child support issue next month, the mother will be $40,000 behind. She refuses to pay her child support to the state has to take everything that comes in to try to put it to arrears. Somehow the mother thinks it’s the father’s fault because she does not pay her bills and they put a lien on her house. Yeah the father pay child support when he was supposed to but once the child support swapped, it was a different situation.

  4. actually I believe you might be the one that needs to do some more research and educate yourself on the realities of the Alaska judicial system. I can personally verify after the last 2 years of and a half years of experience it myself the corruption the injustice and the little literal stealing of our children by the courts on false accusations that have no merit and I do process in the right to present our evidence and witnesses living defend ourselves. my mother accused me of verbal assault and called the police and at 45 I was arrested and charged with the verbal assault domestic violence would she quickly related to domestic violence protection orders on her behalf and all three of my children it’s been two and a half years she has more control over me than she ever did under her abusive household. the courts have given her new platform to abuse me and my children with and harass. she was not victim and she was claiming to be me and my children are OCS office advocacy the gal and prosecutor in my case we’re actually giving videos of my mother’s abusing physically my children and myself two days after my arrest but it still refuse to view them and knowing that place my kids in the hands when abuser and removing them from a safe mother who love them I’m suffering unfortunately the same way with this mother is my son is almost 13 I dropped him off at school in September and went to pick him up and he was gone my mother who had no custody somehow managed to get a court ordering I want to pick up my son and he was gone she picked him up illegally and put him on a plane and nobody listen to me know what they’ll stop it this woman is a mental health professional who lied to have control of me and my family and the court is allowing her to continue doing it she just got her second renewal for my six-year-old daughter and I haven’t seen in 2 years on the accusation but not violent verbal assault the state of Alaska allowed a third party not OCS a private third party to interfere in the private realm of my family steal them and separate them. as an only child the most important thing to me was my children had brothers and sisters and family so the only other thing she could do to hurt me more than taking my children was separating them. I am still in Fairbanks my oldest was snuck out of state by my mother and her father who she had never met that’s about her in 2 years so she’s an organ in my sense in New Orleans and my youngest baby girl is still here in Fairbanks wondering probably where her mom is her brother and her sister after being a forced out of her life and now she’s just alone with my abusive mom. and the courts know this I had video evidence for abuse and nobody will watch my evidence play the 42nd video instead of just believing about allegations in a petition I have the actual incident of alleged pilots of what happened which proves that that’s not what happened as well as a probable cause statement I had entered in as evidence and plan to perjure my mother and show that she was not a credible witness it’s a long-term restraining order. after I was told by the magistrate they would finally view my evidence that have been on fire with the court for 2 months at that point. long term hearing came in instead she decided to skip that as the gas recommendation and issued my mother was trading order granny my children is protected parties as well as also granting separate protection orders for each one of my children issuing four orders in total. only a parent or guardian can file them be having a request custody yes any family member in the abusers household can file a petition on behalf of a minor child but they cannot request custody through it your child support when the petitioner is a child themselves represented by not their mother or legal guardian as a person signing for them but they’re abusive grandmother. I don’t know how this has happened to them I still can’t believe that this is reality it’s not shocking clean universal sense of justice it’s Injustice and I wholeheartedly agree with you and effort to expose what’s going on because it’s not right in our constitutional rights are being violated right and left in two and a half years I have asked every judge my public defender court appointed lawyer for the guardianship as well as police officers and every judge what are my legal rights still as the mother when a third party got it restraining order on it what are my legal rights is mother still since my mother only got temporary custody in the dvpo but has been able to manage to extend that over and over to well like she stated in her petition for renewal she’s raising my children cuz that was the whole intent it’s never about their best interest is about control and that’s what domestic violence is and the abuse I’ve suffered at the hands of the courts since my arrest two and a half years ago and what my children have been through has been a hundred times more painful and more traumatizing than the 45 years I suffered with hers by mother and more damaging the stock the harassing not being heard being able to abuse or not even being able to present evidence and defend yourself and to protect your children from alive when there was no credible witnesses no evidence just manufactured evidence she keeps recycling but as a mental health professional she was prepared I was blindsided it didn’t stand a chance and this needs to be exposed and no more families should be split apart like mine and hers and Jessica I’m so sorry for everything you’ve suffered and I 100% understand and I’m going through the same thing I would be very interested in sharing my story only slight difference in minus is it OCS is not involved in mind I tried to get them involved to protect them from my mother’s abuse and gave them videos of repeating them but they looked the other way. and since OCS would not file anything or do anything when my mother called them to complain about me so she had to do something so a DVP is the magic custody key and loophole that unfortunately most abusers are learning and because they can calmly lie without blinking an eye and mothers with us are upset cuz we’ve been denied our rights and tonight our children and labeled abusive and treated horribly and suffered more abuse this is not acceptable this needs to be fixed and no more families need to be hurt by the Alaska statues and I support what they’re saying you I think sir need to do more research this man knows exactly what he’s talking about and I commend him for trying to get the truth out because it that’s what we all deserve to know what’s going on by our legislatures behind the courtroom doors and they shouldn’t be shielded from immunity everybody should be aware of the violations of what I thought were basic civil rights
