Alex Jones Suffers Defeat In Custody Hearing

Source: Buzz Feed News

AUSTIN After a grueling 10-day trial, a jury has ruled in favor of Infowars founder and CEO Alex Jones' ex-wife, Kelly, in the custody of their three children.

The jury, which deliberated for roughly nine and a half hours, ruled Thursday night to give Kelly Jones joint custody with the ability to dictate the residence of the children. Previously she had joint custody with limited, supervised visitation rights with residence dictated by Alex Jones.

It was a defeat for Alex Jones, who watched the verdict with a stoic expression and left promptly after the verdict without talking to reporters. Upon hearing the verdict, Kelly Jones dabbed her eyes with a tissue and hugged her lawyer, Robert Hoffman.

...

But the thorny prospect of untangling Jones' professional life from his personal life was largely rejected by the court. Judge Orlinda Naranjo would not allow attorneys for Jones' ex-wife to submit clips from Infowars, Jones' radio and online news outlet that broadcasts his conspiratorial views.

During a hearing last week without the jury present, Naranjo did not allow into evidence multiple clips of Jones angry, shirtless, and ranting on his show. The judge also disallowed a clip of Jones and his 14-year-old son at a party where there was a dartboard plastered with images of Hillary Clinton on the grounds that the evidence was overtly political. "I don't want this case tried in the press. It should be tried in here," the judge told the attorneys.

...

The court got its wish. Infowars and Jones' status as America's best-known conspiracy theorist were rarely mentioned around the jury, save for a few brief moments where Kelly Jones' attorneys noted that Jones "spewed violent hate in his professional life." Only one very short clip of Jones allegedly intoxicated on air was played for the jury. (The clip was edited at the request of the judge to remove the phrase "1776 will commence again" on the grounds that it was political speech.)

1. Unless the wife is an in-patient at a psychiatric facility, probably good for the kids.

4. Well right

 


You know two facts about her:

1. Alex Jones was her dreamboat, and

2. She apparently slept with him.

If that's all we have to go on, then one might conclude she's got problems.

5. My guess is that it is too late to rehabilitate these "kids"....

Seriously, shooting darts at the face of Hillary, the face of a woman, by a 14 yr old boy [at the time]?

6. I would not write off the kids just yet. Look at the Bush daughters supporting reproductive rights


See how Ronald Reagan's son Ron Jr is an "unabashed liberal".

8. Just look at the comments sections in many of the news articles about this

Alex Jones' fans are calling his ex-wife all sorts of anti-semitic names.

Disgusting man, disgusting fans.

9. The downside of this is...

His defense of "my entire show is an act and not real" is not held in place.

So he can continue saying he's legit can't he?
