/26/18 CIVIL HEARING-PETITION FOR INJUNCTION FOR PROTECTION FROM DOMESTIC VIOLENCE OBO (on behalf of) RANSON WEBER HORSE & TARA WEBER.
-Llovera was convicted a few days earlier of Battery/Domestic & Trepassing thus Ranson and I were "victims of crime Per: Florida State Constitution."
-Judge Debra Stephens repeatedly violated my disabled child, Ranson Weber Horse’s Constitutional rights, Federal victims rights & his Florida Victim’s Rights in the court proceedings vs. Rafael Llovera.
-This hearing was used to harass my Autistic son by allowing Llovera to call him a thief and Ranson having to defend himself from being accused of stealing & testify against his mother! He was frozen in fear to the point he could hardly talk! BARBARIC!
-On this petition, (posted here) it stated the that Llovera chased my son & every box regarding violence, harassing & stalking was checked off, except one. Judge Stephens knew about what he was convicted of doing to us & refused to protect Ranson a victim of DV leaving him vulnerable to Llovera's violence.
-We had a Battery/Domestic CONVICTION while he was serving time for it, thus Ranson and I were "victims of crime Per: Florida State Constitution ."
-Unlike most pro se (those who represent yourself) victims in these hearings, they are in their first hearing with no crime convictions. Llovera was already guilty of several crimes against women.
-Without notice from the court, Judge Stephens forced my son to testify on the spot when Llovera called me a "thief" and a "liar" and lied that my son had stolen from him. She allowed the name calling despite the fact she just issued an Injunction for Protection from Domestic Violence against Llovera. Florida Family Law Rule 12.407 provides that a child is not to testify unless the court first determines that a child’s testimony is necessary and relevant to the issues!
-Ranson and I were BOTH petrified and had no idea what was happening. He thought his mother and he were going to jail, the way Judge Stephens was yelling at me and my attorney, Arielle Lewis. But the worst possible thing you can do to a child of violence is have them questioned in front of the violent perp. This is basic dynamics of domestic violence. Six months later, Ranson still says he did not get to finish his answers and gets upset at Judge Stephens for not allowing him to fully answer the question.
-She NEVER asked Ranson how the crimes affected him but joined Llovera's harassment which was the shirt he said my son stole! He was so petrified and could not answer!
-Judge Stephens decisions and courtroom behavior is not only unprofessional, unethical but illegal, against a disabled child and his mother who were victims of violence that led to a battery & trespassing conviction
-Judge Stephens violated the Americans With Disabilities Act, harassed, humiliated, traumatized my son Ranson and I. On 2/26/2018 I attended an Injunction hearing in Judge Debra Stephens courtroom in Palm Beach Co. with my son, Ranson Weber Horse, who is disabled from Autism & Neuroborreliosis. He is no longer in remission and his presently being treated by a local specialist. He was ONLY there because I did not want him home alone.
-Llovera agreed to the Injunction, thus Judge Stevens issued it for five years. Hence, no discussion about the violent crimes he was convicted of or accused of. But allowed Llovera to rant and complain about his work belongings in the garage and he called me a “thief’ and a “liar.’ Then accused Ranson of stealing a shirt, that he had really given him!
-Rather than violate him for the name calling, she demanded my son up to her bench immediately, not allowing me to stand by him. Or have an advocate stand by him. (a victim’s rights violation). No one but Llovera was allowed to say anything.
-Judge Stephens forced, my son, Ranson Weber Horse 15 at the time, a traumatized Autistic child to testify on the SPOT, because of Llovera called him a liar, stating my son had stolen his shirt. Demanding an Autistic traumatized child to answer to being called a thief and to answer with him glaring at him! HORRIFYING!
-By forcing Ranson to appear at her bench in front of a packed courtroom with Llovera glaring at him has been traumatizng & has affected both health. Ranson is no longer in remission! ? This type of advocacy for a convicted batterer is ludacris, traumatizing and dangerous to our family.
-When my attorney, Arielle Lewis finally informed Stephens my son was Autistic, Judge Stephens became explosive toward Arielle and yelled at her, “Counselor, DON’T GO THERE! I saw it.” Why would she be so angry? Stephens is the one that forced a child to testify against his own mother-to benefit a convicted batterer-who is not an citizen and has a low level of asylum because he is a Felon who served 5 years in Florida prison????
-Then Judge Stephens ordered a Status Hearing for Llovera's belongings! I am told I will be in contempt if I do not attend the hearing for Llovera's work tools!
Judge Stevens violated the Americans with Disabilities Act when she failed to provide ADA accommodations for Ranson’s disabilities which would have allowed:
*To recognize my son, Ranson's processing delays due to from residual brain damage & Autism.
*He also has Alexithymia which is characterized by difficulties in identifying, describing and processing his own feelings and circumstances. The chance to be told prior what is being asked of him! Ranson would have had the extra time for a detailed response.
*Ranson would have been entitled to an repeated explanation of what was being asked of him and why.
*Ranson would have been allowed ask questions. Then have extra time to process the answers, so he is able to provide complete answers for the testimony.*-Ranson would NOT have had to testify in front of Llovera, the man who repeatedly traumatized him, broke down his front door and repeatedly hurt his mother.
HISTORY OF JUDGE STEPHENS repeated failure to protect & violate ADA & Victims of Crime Rights!
