Update on "Help Dan Brewington see his girls"

The Facebook group I started this past week is at 416 members and growing. Over a hundred members of "Help Dan Brewington see his girls" are people I don't know but they have joined the group in support of my cause. The Dearborn County Indiana good ol' boy network is no longer a secret to the outside world. People keep joining up to to help me take a stand against the abuse of children by the court system. If the government officials are not going to hold people like Judge James D Humphrey and Dr. Edward J Connor accountable for their actions, I will give the public a venue to hold Judge Humphrey and Dr. Connor publicly accountable. I want to thank everyone for their ongoing support. Keep spreading the word.

Please pass the collection plate... all the way to the lawyer's office

...At least this is what some parishioners will be doing this Sunday if they are donating to the Archdiocese of Cincinnati.

I have been requesting a copy of my daughter's school records for five months. I have been told that there are no records; I have all of the records; I cannot have all of the records; etc... The school's policy states, "In the absence of a court order to the contrary, [this particular Cincinnati Catholic School] will provide the non-primary caregiving parent with access to the academic records and to other school-related information regarding the child." There is no court order stating that I am not entitled to the information but the school refuses to provide me with the information. Ms. Mary Henninger, Assistant Superintendent of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati, stated there was no more information to give me aside from two progress reports and referred me to their lawyer, Mark Vander Laan of Dinsmore and Shohl.

First I want to stress that I have no opinion regarding Mr. Vander Laan or anyone at Dinsmore and Shohl. These are merely the legal representatives that the Archdiocese is paying to deal with my situation. Rather than take responsibility for the principal's statements and actions, the Archdiocese would rather take money out of the collection plate than give me a logical explanation why they will not allow me to access to my daughter's records. I know the school doesn't believe that I am a physical risk to anyone because they invited me to attend parent/teacher conferences. It was after the conference when the principal gave me a copy of a photo of me and a note written by my ex-wife instructing the school to call the police if I appeared at the school for any reason. The principal claimed she did not know where the note came from. She claimed that I provided her with the photo that the note was attached to. I did not provide the photo and I certainly did not provide a note instructing the school to call the police if I appeared at the school. Rather than deal with the situation, Ms. Mary Henninger deferred me to their legal counsel.

Just remember Cincinnati Catholics, when you are passing the collection plate this Sunday you are passing it down to Mark Vander Laan of Dinsmore and Shohl because Ms. Mary Henninger and the Archdiocese of Cincinnati decided to pass on taking responsibility. Lawyers cannot shield people from responsibility forever. They don't have lawyers at the Pearly Gates.

Join the group "Help Dan Brewington see his girls" on Facebook

Yesterday I started the Facebook group "Help Dan Brewington see his girls" and there are already close to 200 members. My goal is to get as many members as possible so "professionals" like Dr. Edward J Connor and Judge James D Humphrey will understand how many people are against taking away children's ability to see their parents. Please help me send the message to Dr. Edward J Connor that children should not be used as prostitutes for the financial gain of so many who profit off of divorce and child custody cases. With numbers, we can put pressure on judges and institutions that appoint "professionals" like Dr. Edward J Connor of Connor and Associates. If these judges and institutions become more aware of how many people know about the situation, they will be less likely to revert to appointing a bad psychologist out of convenience or loyalty. Please help me in my mission to be a father to my two daughters and to take a stand to protect children and families. Thank you.

Dear God, are you there? It's me, Dan

Dear God,

I know it's been a long time since we chatted. Since you see all, I assume you read my blog and website daily and I thank you for it. I'm sure you know that I am a less than regular church goer but you probably have seen that I have a heart of gold and I always try to do my best to help other people in this world. With that being said, I do not feel that I am owed anything for doing my part as a responsible human being, I am just looking for some insight if you have the time.

As you know, I haven't seen my little girls for over six months. I try to do my best. For the most part I stay very positive and I work vigilantly to get back into my daughters' lives. I know you work in mysterious ways and there is probably a good explanation for all of this. Maybe you believe that I am the right fit for the role I have been forced into. I'm not violent, I'm kind to others, I have a good heart and capable brain, and I don't lose my cool. Actually I feel I have an obligation to use my abilities to help some of those that weren't blessed with the tools to weather the storm. I don't want you to use anymore resources on me because I feel I am rich in mind and spirit. I am asking you to spread light on other people so they have the power to see how their actions negatively affect the lives of so many.

Could you please bless Dearborn County Prosecutor Aaron Negangard with the courage necessary to rise up and do what is right even though it may not be the easy thing to do? I understand that it is sometimes difficult to do the right thing and take a stand against friends or peers who have lost their way, but it is not fair to let people suffer because you are afraid to take a stand.

Could you please replace some of Judge James D Humphrey's power with strength? Power is a very dangerous thing and it has led to the demise of men and civilizations. With power comes fear because there will always be the fear of falling from power. Strength gives us the ability to deal with our fears and it helps us become stronger and braver people. Sometimes people get lost in power. I think Judge Humphrey lost his way. Rather than having the vision and insight to do what is best for children, he became lost because he was blinded by power.

You may have to put in some overtime on Dr. Edward J Connor. I know that sounds a little presumptuous but I really don't have any insight to any single positive quality of the man. He claims that I intimidate him. As you know from reading my web material, (and everything else you observe from above) I have not done anything but question why someone would sacrifice the well being of man for a profit. I've seen the anger in Dr. Connor's eyes and it is frightening. I am neither intimidated nor scared of Dr. Ed Connor's anger or wrath because I have been given the tools to stand up to such a thing. My concern is for all of those who were not blessed with a calm demeanor and the resources necessary to stand against terror. If Dr. Connor is a lost soul, please give those around him the vision and insight to understand that the futures of families should not be placed in the hands of Dr. Edward J Connor.

Could you send a memo to Archbishop Schnurr of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati? I understand that family conflicts are a touchy situation for school systems. I fear Ms. Mary Henninger and some other officials in the school system have lost their way with the truth. John 4:24 states, "God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth." While at my daughter's parent/teacher conference, her teacher said my daughter prayed for her daddy because she did not see him. Please don't let my daughter's religious education be in vain. Prayer without truth diminishes the sacredness of prayer itself. Asking an innocent child to pray for strength because she cannot see her father, while you hinder her father's ability to be a part of her life, only weakens the lessons taught by the school and church. Rather than address the problem or contact people who help children, the school is watching my daughter pray for a father that she cannot see, when help may be just a phone call away. I've found some of the most obvious answers are the hardest to see. Can you pass that along?

I want to thank you for your time in listening to me. I understand I have a duty to be a good father and to help others who can't help themselves and I will always be diligent in working to do so. If you get a second from your busy schedule, any help would be greatly appreciated. If you don't, I understand. There are many travesties in this world that need your attention. I'll keep working to fix this one. Feel free to call me with any questions or concerns.

Mike Kreinhop for Dearborn County Sheriff?

Mike Kreinhop is running for Dearborn County Sheriff this year. Detective Kreinhop is the detective who contacted me about the alleged investigation of me by the Dearborn County Special Crimes Unit. Detective Kreinhop requested that I meet with him in Dearborn County so I could answer some questions regarding some of my internet content. Detective Kreinhop said an attorney brought the matter to the attention of Dearborn County Prosecutor Aaron Negangard and Prosecutor Negangard instructed Detective Kreinhop to investigate me. When Detective Kreinhop refused to tell me who made the alleged complaint or what the complaint was about, I declined to meet with him. Detective Kreinhop refused to tell my attorney why he wanted to question me. Detective Kreinhop refused to meet with my attorney if I wasn't going to be present. I did not hear from the Dearborn County Prosecutor's office or Detective Kreinhop until about a month later, after I dropped off a packet of information to the offices of the Dearborn County Sheriff and Prosecutor. I included in the packet of information, a copy of the video of two police officers harassing me in the Dearborn County Courthouse; a copy of the audio of Circuit Court staffer, Bonnie Cunningham stating, "Our Judge doesn't lie" in response to my request to inspect public records; and a plethora of false written statements, made by Dr. Edward J Connor, that were sent via fax and US Mail. In my letter I stated that I was concerned about a man alleging to be a detective who contacted me about answering a few questions but refused to tell me what the investigation was about. I wrote that I was distressed that the alleged detective indicated that he knew where my mother resided in Cincinnati. I hand delivered the information on the afternoon of Friday October 30, 2009. Detective Kreinhop showed up at my mother's house in Cincinnati, Ohio the following Monday.

I never worried that Detective Kreinhop wasn't who he represented himself to be. I was not concerned that he knew where my mother lived. I wanted to see how people reacted to my letter. Detective Kreinhop appeared at my mother's house claiming that he was just confirming that I was not going to meet with him. I already told him that. My attorney already told him that. Why did he did he drive all the way to Cincinnati to confirm that I was not going to meet with him? Why didn't Detective Kreinhop check in with the local police department? Why does the Dearborn County Special Crimes Unit waste time and resources harassing me without telling me what they are investigating me? Detective Kreinhop said he met with Dr. Edward J Connor. Was Prosecutor Aaron Negangard protecting the expert/friend of the Dearborn County Courts?
Some of the officials of Dearborn County, Indiana are spineless cowards. Detective Kreinhop knows about Dr. Connor's conduct. So does Prosecutor Aaron Negangard. Why don't they do something about it? On the flip side, why don't they do something about me? It appears that they did not need to talk to me to decide that they were not going to press any charges. I welcomed charges as it would give me the constitutional rights that I was denied in the Mickey Mouse Dearborn County family court system. I told Detective Kreinhop that I would be requesting a jury trial and I would be subpoenaing Dr. Connor, judges, lawyers, etc... Rather than man up, Prosecutor Aaron Negangard decided to quit harassing me. If the investigation found that I did nothing wrong, Prosecutor Negangard failed to do anything about the bogus complaint and allegations of Dr. Edward J Connor. Not only does Prosecutor Negangard turn his head to Dr. Connor's illegal activity, Judge James D Humphrey continues to appoint Dr. Connor in criminal cases involving Prosecutor Negangard. Dr. Connor was recently appointed to evaluate the "Dexter Killer"; a high profile tragedy where a brother murdered his younger sibling. Judge James D Humphrey, Prosecutor Aaron Negangard, and Dearborn County Sheriff Candidate Mike Kreinhop are all aware of the illegal activity of Dr. Edward J Connor yet they turn their heads. They turn their heads when it comes to protecting some of the abused children in Dearborn County.

Striking a nerve with someone

Apparently someone who goes by anonymous is upset with my blog because they continue to call me obsessed, paranoid, etc... I had my blog preferences set so anyone could freely comment on what I write but I changed the preferences so I had the ability to review comments before they were posted. With that being said, I want to give "anonymous" their fair shake and I am posting their comments on this post.

-"Wow Dan, it seems that everyone is out to get you! (or, you could just be paranoid) -Anonymous

Paranoia is baseless or excessive suspicion of the motives of others. Dr. Edward J Connor lied about his ability to release the case file from the child custody evaluation. Judge Carl H Taul recused himself for communicating with Dr. Connor outside the presence of the parties. My ex-wife submitted a signed Office Policy from Dr. Connor's office as evidence, during a June 13, 2008 court hearing, that I was not entitled to the case file. In a letter dated 9/9/08, Dr. Connor wrote that the Office Policy was an adjunct document to the court order. During the final hearing on 5/27/09 , Dr. Ed Connor testified that the Office Policy was not an adjunct document to the court order and claimed his former secretary inadvertently had my ex-wife sign the policy. Judge James D Humphrey wrote, "The Court is most concerned about Husband's irrational behavior and attacks on Dr. Connor." Judge James Humphrey terminated my ability to see my children after refusing to allow me to inspect the "evidence" against me. Judge Humphrey denied my motion to appoint someone to represent the children to inspect Dr. Connor's case file. Two police officers confronted me in the Dearborn County Courthouse and told me that I had to leave, then they left me alone when I did not leave. I was the subject of a "secret investigation" by Prosecutor Aaron Negangard and the Dearborn County Special Crimes Unit. When I declined to come in to be "interviewed" because the would not tell me who made the complaint or what the complaint was about; the "investigation" went away. When I requested a copy of my daughter's school records, the school said there were no records other than 2 progress reports. Ms. Mary Henninger, Assistant Superintendent of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati stated there were no other records to give. Following the parent/teacher conference that the school invited me to attend, the principal allowed me to briefly inspect my daughter's file and I found a photo of me and a note written in my ex-wife's handwriting instructing the school to call the police if I appeared at the school for any reason. Either the school was negligent in inviting me to parent teacher conferences, or the note was just another attempt by my ex-wife to keep me out of my children's lives. When I approached the Archdiocese of Cincinnati about the matter, they would not comment and referred me to their lawyer, Mark Vander Laar of Dinsmore and Shohl LLP of Cincinnati, Ohio. Why? Either they provide me a protective order that states that I am not entitled to my children's school records or provide me with the records. Rather than handling the matter in a professional manner, the Archdiocese referred me to their legal counsel as if they did something wrong. To meet the definition of "paranoia", my suspicion of the above people and acts would have to be considered "baseless" or "excessive." I have documentation, audio, and/or video to support all of the above if there is any question to the accuracy of the above statements.

-"Are you sure that it was your Ex who was diagnosed with the OCD? It seems as if you are the one who is obsessed!" -Anonymous

Anonymous claims that I am obsessed. The irony is that Dr. Connor made no mention that I may suffer from OCD. If Anonymous believes that I do suffer from OCD, then Anonymous believes that Dr. Connor's report is flawed because he failed to make any mention of OCD. Many people applaud my ongoing efforts in fighting to be a part of my daughters' lives. The following are some of the messages of support I received from emails, Facebook, etc...:

"Your determination is amazing Dan! If my kids father had even a quarter of your determination life would be great! :-) keep fighting Mr. Brewington"

"Dan, went on your blogspot today and saw some of the video of you visiting the courthouse. Stay strong and keep fighting. So ridiculous."

"I'm really sorry to hear about your kids. I hope one day soon you'll be able to enjoy them again.They are beautiful girls and I see you're proud of them :) I wish you the best in your journey."

"You keep on doin what you`re doin Dan! We all love ya!"

"Your friends are always behind you, we love you and support you."

"I hope you have a blessed day Dan!!! God loves you and will get you through this and help you with your girls!!!"

"Dan, I just read through your site again and I encourage you to keep fighting! My boys are everything to me and I can only imagine your pain. I hope everything gets turned around for you in the New Year!"

"Too many people allow corrupt officials to intimidate them. Keep fighting Dan."

Hang in there Dan! Somehow things will work out. Have Faith :)"

"Hopefully, this coming year will be a better one. You have so many people pulling for you."

"Your girls know you are with them in spirit and in their hearts! Hang in there, Dan, you will be with them soon and you will have such a great time making up for lost time! They love you and know that you love them so just keep that in your heart!"

"Hang in there Dan!! I have to admit I wish my dad had fought for me......I was adopted but now 35 yrs later he wants me in his life.....imagine this! Keep fighting Dan!!!!!!!"

"My heart is with you. I can't imagine my husband being forced to miss either of the girls birthdays,it makes me want to cry."

"The fact that your putting out the effort shows the kind of dad you are. Just keep on fighting Dan"

Keep fighting Dan! We are all praying for you and your kids!"

I hope the Dearborn and Ripley County governments understand how this appears to the outside world. I hope the Archdiocese of Cincinnati (or their lawyers), understands that people are praying for me and my children while the Archdiocese and the school waste the money of parishioners on legal fees rather than follow their own policies on regarding the release of student records. I hope Anonymous understands that I did not create the situation, but I have a lot of people praying that I fix the problem.

Letter to Ms. Mary Henninger, Assistant Superintendent, Archdiocese of Cincinnatit

The following is a letter to Mary Henninger. Ms. Henninger is the Assistant Superintendent for the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. The letter refers to the situation regarding the actions and conduct of the principal of my daughter's school. Rather than personally address the actions of the principal, Ms. Mary Henninger and the Archdiocese referred me to their legal counsel, Mark Vander Laan of Dinsmore & Schohl, LLP. Not only is the Catholic Archdiocese of Cincinnati not willing to address how the failure to maintain accurate student records may put children at risk, the Archdiocese is willing to waste financial resources in paying lawyers to handle the situation. If the Archdiocese of Cincinnati is unable to follow or address the provisions of the Family Educational Privacy Act, going through lawyers, mediation, etc... would be a waste of time and resources. If a school system is referring a situation resulting from the conduct of a school principal to their legal counsel, then the public should be made aware of the situation to protect other children and parents from potential harm. For more information about my story, please visit The photo to the right is my wedding photo, which the school principal claimed I provided to her. She also claimed she did not know where the note above the photo came from. I did not provide the school with my wedding photo with my ex-wife cut out of the photo and the handwriting of the note belongs to my ex-wife. The principal gave me a copy of this photo and the attached note in the school office following the parent/teacher conference that the school invited me to attend. [I have removed the names of my daughter's principal (Doe) and her school (Cincinnati Catholic School X) from the letter.]

Re: Principal [“Doe”]

Dear Ms. Henninger,

My daughter is a kindergarten student at [Cincinnati Catholic School X]. I attended my daughter’s parent/teacher conference on Thursday February 11, 2010. Principal “Doe” was also present at the conference. I found Principal Doe’s conduct and her explanation of the Archdiocese’s policies to be rather disturbing.

I have been requesting copies of my daughter’s school records for a few months now and I have been informed by you and Principal Doe that I have already been provided with all of the records. During the February 11, 2010 conference, Principal Doe informed me that non-custodial parents are not entitled to their children’s student records. Ms. Doe was adamant that I had copies of all the records to which I was entitled. When Ms. Doe offered to let me glance at the contents of my daughter’s file, I discovered that there was a photo of me with a note attached that stated, “Please call the police if he appears at the school for any reason.” Ms. Doe claimed that I sent her the picture and stated, “I don’t know who wrote the note on there to be quite honest with you.” The handwriting on the note belongs to my daughter’s mother.

I did not provide the school my wedding photo with my daughter’s mother cut out of the picture. I find it distressing that Principal Doe claims that she is not aware who provided the information in my daughter’s school file, especially as the school invited me to attend parent teacher conferences while there was a note instructing the school to call the police if I appear at the school for any reason.

I have included a copy of the photo and the attached note that is in my daughter’s school record. Principal Doe claims that she is unaware of who provided the school with the information. I expect a call from your office with an explanation of the situation and a solution to the problem. Principal Doe is either not able to protect the integrity of student records, or she is not telling the truth about who placed the information in my daughter’s file. What complicates the issue is Principal Doe claims that non-custodial parents do not have a right to inspect their children’s entire student record. I plan on contacting the proper authorities on both the state and federal level about Principal Doe’s actions and the school’s policies regarding access to student records. I have attached some examples of Principal Doe’s statements. Please feel free to contact me if you, or Principal Doe, have any questions regarding the accuracy of Principal Doe’s statements. If the Archdiocese cannot provide me with a court order stating that I am not entitled to the information, I would expect the school to provide me with copies of all records, correspondence, medical information, etc… pertaining to my daughter. This would include any letters that the school has sent or received by any party including myself. On December 4, 2009, you stated that there were no other records for the school to give me. This is obviously an inaccurate statement. Principal Doe is aware my daughter’s records are not accurate. Principal Doe was in possession of a note instructing the school to call the police if I appeared at the school for any reason yet the school invited me to parent teacher conferences. Failure to provide me with all information pertaining to my daughter poses a potential emotional and physical risk to my daughter. Go to for more information regarding the above situation.

I expect a prompt response.

A Cincinnati Catholic School System Policy may put Children at Risk

...At least as indicated by one principal of a Cincinnati Catholic School.

I recently attended my daughter's parent/teacher conference which the principal sat in on. Principal "Doe" stated that non-custodial parents were not entitled to student records such as emergency contact numbers, registration information, etc... Ms. Doe explained to me that the Family Educational and Privacy Rights Act (also known as the Buckley Amendment) "says you have a right to educational information. That's not emergency phone numbers." By Ms. Doe's statements, the non-custodial parent would have no way of determining if they were listed as an emergency contact if the custodial parent did not want the school to share that information with the other parent. Ms. Doe also stated, "There aren't any records on a kindergarten student." When I asked Ms. Doe for copies of my daughter's medical records that the school is in possession of, Ms. Doe stated "I'm not quite sure why you would want it. Are you going to call her doctor and say 'how's [my daughter] doing?" I asked Ms. Doe why she was being so combative and she replied, "I don't know. Why are you? Wanting copies of stuff that you know you have no right to."

The school's policy in the Parent/Student Handbook states, "The school abides by the provisions of the Buckley Amendment with respect to the rights on non-primary caregiving parents. In the absence of a court order to the contrary, [the school] will provide the non-primary caregiving parent with the access to the academic records and to other school-related information regarding the child." When I asked Ms. Doe if she had a copy of the law, she replied, "Yeah I got the case law. Do you?" I replied "yes I do" to which Ms. Doe replied, "Well good then we're on the same page."

I have never experienced a school administrator with such an antagonistic personality. All I requested was a copy of the records that the school has for my daughter. Last December, Assistant Superintendent Mary Henninger informed me that there were no records to give other than two progress reports. Ms. Doe was adamant that there were no other records in my daughter's file. Ms. Doe was so adamant, she invited me glance over the contents of the file in her office.

"There's her [my daughter's] picture. There's the registration form. Student enrollment. Your picture." This is what Ms. Doe stated when she flipped through my daughter's file. To say the least, I was surprised to see a photo of me with a post-it note in her file. When I asked Ms. Doe to see the photo, Ms. Doe replied, "I think it's the same one you sent me, actually." I did not send the photo to the school. The photo was my wedding photo with my ex-wife cut out of the picture. When I asked her for a copy of the photo and the attached note, Ms. Doe stated, "I don't know who wrote the note on there to be quite honest with you."

I find it hard to believe that the principal of the school did not know who provided the school with a photo of me or who wrote the note attached to my photo; especially when the note stated "Please call the police if he appears at school for any reason." If Ms. Doe would have compared the handwriting on the note to my daughter's registration, she would have been able to see that it was the handwriting of my ex-wife. Why doesn't a principal of a school know who wrote a note that says to call the police if a parent "appears at school for any reason"? Maybe a better question is, why is the school inviting me to parent teacher conferences when my ex-wife is instructing them to call the police if I appear at the school for any reason? There were no restraining orders in my daughter's record, yet there is a note to call the police if I appear at the school. The Family Educational and Privacy Rights Act was enacted to protect the accuracy of student records. Obviously there is no order to support my ex-wife's request for police intervention because the school would not have invited me to parent/teacher conferences, yet, as a non-custodial parent, I do not have the ability to review the accuracy of the rest of my daughter's files per the policy of the Catholic Archdiocese of Cincinnati.

My experience with the principal of this particular Cincinnati Catholic School is disturbing on a variety of levels. The biggest problem is that, as a non-custodial parent, Principal Doe claims that I do not have a right to all records pertaining to my daughter. Ms. Doe told me that there was probably only one emergency contact number in my daughter's record. Ms. Doe stated, "there aren't any student records on a kindergarten student." After telling me there are no records for my daughter besides a couple of progress reports, and telling me that I was not entitled to a copy of my daughter's records from the school, Principal Doe proceeded to give me a copy of a photo of me with a note stating that the police should be called if I appeared at the school for any reason. Ms. Doe claimed the photo came from me and she did not know where the note came from. Since there are no restraining orders, whoever wrote the note was providing the school with false information. Principal Doe stated the Archdiocese's policy prevented me from inspecting the rest of my daughter's student record to see if there is any information, or lack thereof, that may be harmful to my daughter. Principal Doe's actions also call into question the school's ability to keep students safe from truly dangerous individuals. The school invited me to attend parent teacher conferences despite there being a note in my daughter's record instructing the school to call the police if I appear at the school for any reason. Principal Doe stated she didn't know where the note came from yet she gave me a copy of the note while I was standing in the school office. If Principal Doe did not believe that my ex-wife's note instructing the school to call the police was credible, then Principal Doe and the Catholic Archdiocese may be putting my daughter's emotional and physical well-being at risk. The policy of the Catholic Archdiocese prohibits me from inspecting my daughter's records to see if there is more inaccurate information that may be damaging to my daughter or her father. It's very disturbing when an educational institution prevents a non-custodial parent from inspecting their own child's record when the school is aware that inaccurate information exists in the file.

I love you girls. Daddy won't give up on you.

People who defend bad people

This is what I have to deal with in a day, this person alleging to be not my friend wrote:

How's the job seach going Dan? So you can get the $$ you need to get counseling so you can see your children?!?! You seem to have plenty of time to follow what goes on in Dr. Connors life - let's follow yours!! What did you do today besides this? GET REAL!!! While you are playing around doing this I know your wife is taking care of the kids, working, paying her bills and trying to provide a healthy environment for your children. What did you do today?? I know, you worked on slamming Dr. Connor - I am sure this will get you just want you want . . . your children back in your life. If you had them back then you couldn't do this and you would need to get a job to help support them - if you are still not working who pays child support????? Get help!!!!! KUDOS DAN!!! Not your friend - Trish!!!

It kills me how this woman named Trish (I know it's not you TC) is worried about my job. Why don't you ever mention that my ex wife lived for free for nearly five years when we were married. Why don't you mention that she never tried to modify parenting time during the 2.5 year divorce that she filed for? Given her profession, it would have been a class B misdemeanor if she failed to report child neglect. Why don't you mention that she successfully convinced a Judge to award her over $122,000 for property that was not marital property? Did you mention how her family has worked to keep the children from being able to communicate with their father on the phone? Why are you so angry? Do you think that I am unreasonable for questioning someone who lied about their office policy statement. Do the research Trish. Do you know why I don't get to see my children? Because my ex wife couldn't just quit at requesting supervised visitation, she had to say that my mother, who has her master's degree in guidance and counseling, wasn't qualified to supervise the visitation. What people really can't grasp, aside from the fact that my ex refuses to let the children speak to their father, is how a person could make a claim to property they know is not theirs. My mother and father spent their lives investing in farmland. Just before my father died of cancer, they put the farmland in a trust. My mother has the right to use all of the assets of the trust for medical reasons, standard of living, etc... as the trustee sees fit. I have no ownership or control of the trust. If I die before my mother, I get nothing and the girls inherit property upon mom's death. After 4.5 years of marriage, my ex wife deemed it necessary to make a claim to $122,000 of the trust and the judge awarded it to her. Not only did she take the children away from their father, she did everything she could to destroy everything the girls' grandmother and grandfather worked so hard to build.

My Ex told me she didn't expect the court to take away all of my parenting time. Why didn't she file something? As for going to counseling, I have been going to the same place for ADHD for over 8 years. Check the evaluation. Dr. Connor didn't say that my ADHD would cause any problems for the girls; he said that my Ex's OCD may cause problems if not treated. You keep protecting people who lie in court. If you have so much insight to the situation, why don't you bring some evidence that I have done something bad to the children. Oh, I'm sorry, there isn't any.

Yahoo Reviews Removed Dr. Connor's Business Listing

Yahoo Business Reviews pulled Dr. Connor's business profile from the web. It appears that Dr. Connor wasn't pleased with the negative reviews he was receiving. Now Yahoo lists Dr. Kirk Little as the inhabitant of 34 Erlanger Rd. Erlanger, Kentucky 41018. The name changed but the phone and address remained the same. I decided to call Dr. Little's office at the number listed, 859-341-5782, and to my surprise, the number still belonged to Dr. Edward J Connor of Connor and Associates. I did some research and found that there was a Dr. Kirk Little on Houston Road in Florence, Kentucky. When I called Dr. Little's office, the woman told me that Dr. Little did not have another office. Why would Yahoo have a business listing for Kirk Little with Dr. Connor's number? Who contacted Yahoo and requested that Dr. Connor's review site be taken down? What's the purpose of review sites when the business owner has the ability to manipulate the content?

Just another shameless attempt by Dr. Connor to hide from responsibility. Here's an idea Ed; start telling the truth. If you take money to perform a service, do it right. Dr. Connor seems to enjoy filing erroneous child custody evaluation reports with courts and then charging the clients to fix the mistakes. (Goto for more information.) How can he get away with it? Because he is Ed Connor. Well I am Dan Brewington and I am helping people take a stand. You can stick to your guns Ed but you are slowly running out of people to believe your stories. Honesty would have served you well.

Response to Anonymous Post

Once again someone named "Anonymous" has posted a comment on my blog. I do not know if this is the same "Anonynous" who wrote that they were willing to face me anytime. I do know that "Anonymous" found it necessary to reply to two of my blog posts at 11:42 PM and 11:51 PM on a Sunday night

I have a hard time understanding why people are willing to allow public officials to continue to hurt children and their families. I have posted a plethora of examples of where Dr. Edward J Connor lied about why he can or cannot release the case file. The first Judge, Carl Taul, recused himself because he did something illegal. The second Judge, James D Humphrey, denied my motion for a guardian ad-litem to protect the children and then terminated my parenting time citing that I was potentially dangerous because of my "irrational behavior and attacks" on Dr. Connor. Dr. Connor testified that I could care for the children on the days that my ex-wife worked because he did not have any evidence that suggested the children were in danger in my care. Dr. Connor didn't recommend supervised visitation. My ex-wife requested that I have supervised visitation, and then said my mother wasn't qualified to supervise it, despite making no attempt to modify parenting time during the course of the 2.5 year divorce. My mother is a retired 8th grade math teacher with her master's degree in guidance and counseling and my Ex did not have a problem with my mother watching the children when we were married. Why did the Judge terminate my parenting time? Dr. Connor did not recommend it. My Ex only asked for supervised visitation. There was no evidence or testimony of abuse or neglect. There were no retraining orders, no police reports or any involvement from child protective services. Judge James D Humphrey wrote, "The Court is most concerned about Husbands irrational behavior and attacks on Dr. Connor." Judge James D Humphrey was concerned about all of the letters I sent Dr. Connor that questioned why Dr. Connor did not tell the truth. The Court stripped two little girls of a father because he didn't like the way I held Dr. Connor accountable for lying. For some reason, "Anonymous" tries to defend the Judge's decision to make two little girls fatherless without any evidence of abuse or neglect.

Anonymous wants to know what hoops I have to go through. Judge Humphrey said I have to have a psychological evaluation to determine if I am a potential danger to the children. Dr. Connor's evaluation and testimony made no mention of me being a danger to the children. If a second evaluator said there was nothing wrong with me, I could petition the Court to allow me to go through two, two hour supervised visitation sessions a week with the children, in a therapeutic environment to see if I was a capable parent. After that, I could petition the Court for unsupervised visitation. When I petitioned the Court to release Dr. Connor's case file to a psychiatrist so I could be evaluated, Judge Humphrey said he didn't have jurisdiction because the case was in appeal. I had to appeal the matter because Judge Humphrey ruled I had to pay my Ex nearly $170,000. She went after a future interest in farmland that my parents' invested in. If I were to die before my mother, I would have no claim to the inheritance and it would go directly to my girls upon the death of their grandmother. My Ex argued that she should be entitled to $122,000 worth of farmland knowing that it could be our daughters. I had to appeal to protect my children's future inheritance.

Why won't my Ex let met talk to the children on the phone? I don't know. There are no restraining orders preventing it; she just arbitrarily cut the girls off from their father. I write letters to my daughters asking them to call me but I guess their mother won't let them. My Ex had the children call my aunt over Christmas. My oldest daughter told my aunt to tell daddy that she loved him. Why wouldn't my ex let the children talk to me on their birthdays and Christmas? Why would my Ex and her attorney, Angela G Loechel submit a bogus document as evidence in an attempt to obstruct my access to the case file? I have attorneys working on getting me back to the children. The problem is, they have a hard time understanding how Judge Humphrey and Dr. Connor could obstruct my access to the alleged evidence against me. They don't understand why Judge Humphrey would turn his back on Dr. Connor's false written statements and erroneous testimony. Everyone in the legal world believes I am entitled to the case file from the child custody evaluation except Angela Loechel, Judge Carl H Taul and Judge James D Humphrey. If the Court was concerned with me posting sensitive information on the internet, the Court could have put a condition on the release of the case file where I could be held in contempt if I would have shared the information with the public. Why are they protecting Dr. Edward J Connor?

Tattling. That's what it is Anonymous. Dr. Connor went to the Dearborn County Prosecutor's office. After Detective Mike Kreinhop talked to me, he said he believed Dr. Connor went on the offense when I began questioning why Dr. Connor was lying in his letters. Detective Kreinhop said he felt that Judge Humphrey became defensive after I challenged his expert. Why didn't they file any charges against me? Probably because I didn't do anything illegal. If an investigation by the Dearborn County Special Crimes Unit determines that I didn't do anything illegal, then the person making the complaint was probably trying to cause me harm. Contact Dearborn County Prosecutor Aaron Negangard's office to find out for yourself (812) 537-8884. Contact Detective Mike Kreinhop. Detective Kreinhop investigated the matter and apparently didn't find any wrong doing because they did not arrest me. Detective Kreinhop must be a somewhat credible person because he is running for Dearborn County Sheriff.

If Judge Humphrey wanted me to be involved in my children's lives, why did he take them away. If you study the Indiana Code, Anonymous, you will find that IC 31-17-2-8.3 states that if a parent commits a domestic violence crime in front of the children or in earshot, they must have supervised visitation for one year not to exceed two years. I committed no crime yet people who beat their spouses get more visitation than me and Anonymous feels Judge Humphrey and Dr. Connor's actions are justifiable. Why should I have to prove that I am a capable father when there is no evidence to suggest that I am not? People are always lecturing fathers about playing a role in their children's lives, yet "professionals" like Judge Humphrey and Dr. Connor work to take parents away. If Judge James Humphrey's contention is that I am a dangerous person, what does that say about the mother of my children? She never made any mention of the children being in danger during the course of a 2.5 year divorce. My Ex was fine with "using" me as a babysitter because she never missed a day of work due to me being unavailable to care for the children. She bashed me in the final hearing in an effort to drive a wedge between the girls and me. If she failed to recognize that the children were in danger when they were in the care of their father, who's to say that she wouldn't place the children in danger with another care provider? If the children were never in any danger while in my care, then someone did something very bad. As a responsible adult, I feel I have a duty to inform the public about the criminal misconduct that takes place in the Dearborn County Family Court system. If my Ex would have agreed to allowing me to have close to equal time with the girls, none of this would have happened. Rather than acknowledging a father's commitment to his children, Judge Humphrey punished me for failing to accept the role as an every other weekend dad that my wife felt was best for the children. Rather than accept the common understanding that it is acceptable that children are stripped of their parents, I'm doing something about it. Judge Humphrey had previously ruled that my internet content was not harmful to the children because he didn't grant my ex-wife's motion to order me to take them down. If Judge James D Humphrey punishes my children because I exercise my 1st amendment rights, then Judge Humphrey is more concerned about protecting himself and his expert than protecting the rights of two precious little girls. That is a story that needs to be told.

Happy Birthday Audrey

Tomorrow is my daughter's 4th birthday. I haven't seen her or her sister since August 18, 2009. Their mother stopped letting me speak to them on the phone on September 4, 2009. I missed the first day of kindergarten, the first day of preschool, a 6th birthday, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, a 4th birthday and everything in between. Judge James D Humphrey said I had to jump through hoops if I want to see my daughters again. I can't even do that because Judge Humphrey ruled that I have to pay my ex-wife nearly $170,000. Judge Humphrey ruled that I have to pay my ex-wife $122,000 from my parent's farmland that I have no ownership stake in or control. There is a lien on my mother's property because of the ruling. He ordered that I pay $40,000 out of $50,000 my ex-wife's legal fees. Because I was forced to appeal the monetary judgments, Judge Humphrey says he can't hear anything regarding the children because the case is in appeal. Nice work James, lump people's children in with the dining room furniture and 401Ks.

This is what Judge James D Humphrey wanted for my children. He set everything up so I may not be able to see my children for maybe a year. Judge Humphrey punished my children to protect Dr. Edward J Connor. Dearborn County officials do not care about children. State Senator Johnny Nugent turned his back. Prosecutor Aaron Negangard does not care if children are abused by Dearborn County Courts. Sheriff David Lusby doesn't care. Detective Mike Kreinhop, who recently announced his candidacy for Dearborn County Sheriff, is aware that Judge Humphrey's expert committed mail and wire fraud but told me to take the problem elsewhere. Dearborn County Officials would rather protect their own than to protect children.

So what do I do? I keep working. I keep fighting to keep pressure on Dearborn County officials who abuse children or allow the abuse to happen. I have people working on the appeal to try to undo the damage that Judge Humphrey did. I'm going to miss a year of my children's lives because Judge James D Humphrey is a nasty evil man. I am going to be sure that the year will be spent trying to prevent this kind of thing from happening again.

Dr. Edward J Connor, Mr. Predictable

Like clockwork, Dr. Connor appears to have done it again. I guess Dr. Connor must have been upset with the recent information I posted on the internet. Dr. Connor did what he always does; he contacted a county official to try to harm me, but I think people are getting wise to Dr. Connor's antics. Many people have expressed concerns that Dr. Connor may sue me because of my internet writings. The problem with Dr. Connor suing me for slander, libel, defamation of character, etc... is the burden of proof is on Dr. Connor to prove that my writings are false. If Dr. Connor sued me, he would have to give me a copy of the case file. So rather than sue me, Dr. Connor resorts to what he does best, tattling.

Dr. Connor has contacted at least two judges, a couple of prosecutors, and who knows who else and for some reason no one has locked me up. Dr. Connor is the bully on the playground who runs to the teacher the first time someone stands up to him; a true coward. Cowboy up Connor. Quit hiding. If you think you have been wronged, sue me and take the matter to court so you can explain to a jury why all of your conflicting and false written statements that are posted on my websites are really not conflicting and false written statements. Judges can protect Dr. Connor but not juries. I like to see the "expert forensic psychological professional" explain to a jury that I picked on him. He can give it the old, "Even though I didn't notice anything in my observations of Mr. Brewington that would lead me to believe he is capable of causing harm to anyone; and even though he has no history of violence, I think he could be dangerous because he keeps questioning why I lie about why I won't give Mr. Brewington a copy of his own file from my office." I'm sure the jury will buy it Doc. I'll be sure to have a very well known attorney to represent me on that one. Keep tattling Dr. Connor.

Re: Complaint against Dr. Edward J Connor, Psy D of Erlanger, KY

To whom it may concern,

I am interested in filing a complaint against Dr. Edward J Connor of Erlanger, KY. Dr. Connor’s practice, Connor and Associates, PLLC, is located at 34 Erlanger Rd, Erlanger, Kentucky, 41018.

Dr. Connor conducted a child custody evaluation in my divorce during the summer of 2007. Dr. Connor has refused to provide me a copy of the case file from the evaluation in accordance with Dr. Connor’s contract, Provisions to Serve as an Impartial Expert in a Custody Evaluation, which both parties signed at the onset of the evaluation. Since March 11, 2008, Dr. Connor has given a plethora of inaccurate and conflicting reasons as to why he will not release the case file. On several occasions, Dr. Connor contacted the Court directly which led to the recusal of a judge. A timeline of Dr. Connor’s written statements is as follows:

  1. February 21, 2008 Dr. Connor sent a letter to Judge Carl H Taul stating, “Mr. Brewington’s documents indicate that there are numerous errors and oversights in the evaluation.”
  2. March 11, 2008, Dr. Connor sent me a letter stating, “We cannot release a copy of the case file to you without Ms. Brewington’s consent, as it contains confidential information about her as well as the children in addition to yourself.
  3. March 26, 2008, Dr. Connor sent me a letter stating, “If I receive verification from the Court of your pro-se status, I would be happy to release the chart records to you.”
  4. March 27, 2008, Dr. Connor sent me a letter stating, “Our correspondence with Judge Taul indicates that you have a right to the “evaluation” at this time. As such, we do not interpret this as you having a right to the entire file, but simply the “evaluation” report.”
  5. April 16, 2008, Dr. Connor stated in the addendum to the custody evaluation, “Mr. Brewington is correct in stating that our contract [Provisions to Serve as an Impartial Expert in a Custody Evaluation] indicates that we would provide the file to the representing attorneys, however, given the circumstances, we believe a court order is necessary given that he is representing himself pro se.”
  6. August 4, 2008, Dr. Connor sent me a letter stating, “Without Ms. Brewington’s consent or a Court order from Judge Taul, I am prohibited from releasing the confidential information contained within the file per state and HIPAA laws and regulations.”
  7. September 9, 2008, Dr. Connor sent me a letter stating, “With regards to the Office Policy Statement, we do not have a signed Office Policy Statement for you on file. It appears you were not provided with this document when you initially came to our office, which was an oversight on the part of the office staff. Nevertheless, the Office Policy Statement is simply an adjunct document to the Court order in which you and Ms. Brewington agreed to participate fully in a custody evaluation to be conducted at this office. Furthermore, the parameters for the evaluation are outlined in the document entitled ‘Provisions to Serve as an Impartial Expert in a Custody Evaluation,’ which you signed on 6/18/07.”
  8. May 27, 2009, during the final hearing in my divorce, Dr. Connor testified to the following, “There was a form that was incorrectly given to Ms. Brewington from our secretary at the time, who is no longer with us.” When asked if the Office Policy Statement was an adjunct document to the court order, Dr. Connor replied, “It’s an adjunct – it’s not an adjunct to a court order. It’s – it’s adjacent to what we do when people come in. [sic].”
  9. September 21, 2009, in a letter to one of my attorneys, Dr. Connor stated, “Please be advised that Daniel Brewington was provided with copies of the records you are requesting and thus, should have them in his possession for your review, He further should have copies of the voluminous correspondence he sent to this office as well as, any correspondence sent to him.”
  10. September 28, 2009, in a letter to the same attorney, Dr. Connor stated, “I will have the records for Daniel Brewington by Friday October 2, 2009. However, I am quite perplexed as to why this is necessary given that Mr. Brewington already has copies of all of his records to/from our office.”
  11. October 2, 2009, in a letter to the same attorney, Dr. Connor stated, “The records concerning Mr. Brewington have been copied and while I indicated the records would be available to you no later than today, I am unable to release them at this time for the reasons outlined below.” Dr. Connor went on to write, “After conducting a cursory review of the records you requested, it is apparent that there are numerous references to Mr. Brewington’s children by name as well as information about the mother interspersed throughout the documents. There are also photos of the parties that Mr. Brewington sent to me. I instructed my staff to black out names or identifying information; however, it quickly became clear that this was extremely tedious and time consuming and there was no guarantee that a confidential item would not be overlooked given that there are 940 pages of records. I have a legal and ethical responsibility to protect the confidentiality of all clients and therefore cannot release records containing information about the mother and the children without proper consent.”
  12. November 11, 2009, in a letter to my appellate attorney, Dr. Connor stated, “Please see the attached Court orders by the Honorable Judge Carl H Taul and the Honorable James D. Humphrey ordering that the information you requested not be released. Please be advised that Mr. Brewington has already received a copy of his individual records per his request. In order for me to release the “entire” case file, I will need a Court order that supersedes both the Honorable Judge Taul’s order as well as the Honorable Judge Humphrey’s order.” [NOTE: There is no protective order prohibiting Dr. Connor from releasing the case file and the file has not been sealed by the Court.

I am able to provide copies of the letters and court transcripts that contain the above statements. Included in these documents are many examples of how Dr. Connor has attacked me because I have been persistent in trying to obtain the case file from my evaluation. Dr. Connor’s original child custody evaluation report made no mention of me presenting a danger to anyone. After Dr. Connor received several written requests for the case file, Dr. Connor began to tell the court that he felt threatened by my behavior. During the course of my 2.5-year divorce, I cared for my children nearly half of the time. There were no motions to modify parenting time, no allegations of abuse or neglect, no social services, no restraining orders, no domestic violence, no injuries, etc… On August 18, 2009, the Judge terminated all visitation with my three and five year old girls. Prior to then, my children had never gone more than four days without seeing either parent. I have not seen them since. Judge James D Humphrey based his decision on Dr. Connor’s testimony. The final decree stated, “According to Dr. Connor’s testimony, Husband’s writings are similar to those of individuals who have committed horrendous crimes against their families.” No examples of the alleged writings were submitted to Court and Dr. Connor refused to release the case file.

I created a website and a blog detailing my experiences in dealing with Dr. Edward J Connor Psy D. Dr. Connor claimed all of the following: I was not entitled to the file. He would be happy to give me the file. He interpreted that I was not entitled to the file. He would not release the file because I did not have an attorney. Dr. Connor claimed there were state and HIPAA laws that prevented him from releasing the file. Dr. Connor stated that I already had the case file and then claimed he would not re-release the file because it contained confidential information about other people. Dr. Connor then claimed that there were Court orders that prevented him from releasing the file despite Dr. Connor’s previous claims of already releasing the information.

“[Mr. Brewington’s] repeated remarks in letters and motions filed with the Court implying that I have engaged in some form of unethical or criminal behavior are patently false and disturbing. I have patiently and repeatedly responded to Mr. Brewington’s concerns to this point; however, it is clear that he disregards any information that does not serve his agenda. It is very perplexing that he is unable to understand or accept the basic premise of confidentiality that protects Ms. Brewington’s records from being released without her consent or without a Court order. I have repeatedly explained this to him in our correspondence, but he continues to claim I have not given him a valid reason for withholding the file.” -Ex parte letter to Judge Carl H Taul dated September 10, 2008. Judge Taul later recused himself. This letter came a day after Dr. Connor claimed that his office staff forgot to have me sign the Office Policy Statement but it was “simply an adjunct document to the Court order”. Dr. Connor’s September 10th letter was written approximately 8 months prior to Dr. Connor testifying that his former secretary mistakenly had my ex wife sign the Office Policy Statement and it was, in fact, not an adjunct document to the Court order.
