Kyron Horman: Desiree Young sues Terri Horman for $10m – Mulugeta Seraw is not poof

KYRON Horman: Desiree Young, Kyron Horman’s bith mother, is suing the missing boy’s step-mother, Terri Horman the last person we know to have seen Kyron on June 4, 2010, the day he went missing in Portland, Oregon.

Young, married to local cop, suing Horman for “custodial interference” keeping a parent from their child “permanently or for a protracted period.”

Only, Terri Horman has been convicted of no crime. She has been charged with no crime. We do not know if any crime befell Kyron Horman. All we know is that two years ago the seven-year-old went missing form his school in Portland, Oregon.

The lawsuit states:

“Terri Horman knows whether Kyron is alive or dead, and knows his present whereabouts or the location of his remains,”

The Oregonian states:

In a criminal case a defendant must be found guilty “beyond a reasonable doubt.” However, in a civil case a defendant must only be found guilty based on a “preponderance of evidence.”

What evidence? There is only a single fact: Kyron Horman is missing. A family law attorney named Drew Bobzien informs us:

“I explain to people as if you have a scale and drop one grain of sand on the scale, that’s all you have to show for preponderance of the evidence. So it’s a very low standard.”

Low’s not in it. And, in any case, Terri Horman is protected by the Fifth Amendment. She doensn’t have to say a thing. As the US Bill of Rights States:

No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.

So. Because Terri Horman could a face a criminal trial, she need do nothing. She has no need to incriminate
