Friday, November 13, 2015: So, the judge wanted to spend some time with Samantha. Away from Maria Guadalupe Tenorio Toledano (AKA Lupita Tenorio, Marsha Tenorio) and their attorneys. Sam was not going to join us in the court room, but rather in another room. We can see her through a video and audio feed. Accompanying her is the DA and a DIF psychologist. After getting comfortable with what was going on, the judge explained to Samantha what was going on. I felt the judge did a great job with Samantha. This has been a very traumatic experience for her and the way the judge handled this was very much appreciated. Not that Adriana Coronel Tenorio’s (AKA Adriana Howitt Coronel, Ari Coronel, Ari Coronel Tenorio, Ari Howitt, Ari Howitt Coronel) attorneys would have noticed, they weren’t even paying attention. Graciela Alarcon Barreda had to be warned a couple times to not use her cell phone in court, that is how much they were not paying attention.

We will post the entire video collection of these entire proceedings in due time. Stay tuned. In the picture above, Samantha’s back is facing us next to the time and date stamp. To Samantha’s left is the judge. She took her robe off to lessen the intimidation factor for Samantha. The woman to Samantha’s right is the DIF psychologist and the woman next to her is the DA.

Samantha was amazing! She stood tall and was very brave. We could not see Samantha’s facial expressions because the camera was behind her. We could hear her and that was the main thing. The judge was interviewing 2 different Samantha’s: Parental Abducted & Parental Alienated Samantha and the Samantha who understands what is happening to her. The very first question the judge asked Samantha was “how does she feel about moving so many times?” Samantha said she hates it. Samantha goes on to say how hard it’s been to change schools all the time; to change houses all the time and how she has to make new friends all the time. She hates Irapuato and thinks Irapuato is boring because there is no ocean nearby.

The judge asked Samantha the one question Adriana probably wished she never asked, “Samantha, why have you moved so much?”

Sam: “Because we are hiding from my Dad.”

When asked how that makes her feel, Samantha said she “wished I could spend more time with my Dad; that when my Dad did visit we were never allowed to go to dinner or go to Disneyland, nothing because we were not allowed to leave the house. Someone was always watching us.”

The session with Samantha went on for about 45-minutes. It oscillated between Samantha talking about things that have been drilled into her head for the last 7-years by Adriana and Maria Guadalupe and her experiences with me personally.

After Samantha was done, the DIF psychologist took the stand to describe to us what she observed. She mentioned that Samantha was nervous, playing with her hands most of the time. Samantha is uncomfortable with this situation and that she suffers all the classic signs of Parental Alienation – a direct result of being abducted by Adriana and Maria Guadalupe.

At that point we were running out of time and were only 1/2 through the hearing based on the judge’s criteria. On shit luck alone, Adriana’s attorneys will get their continuance. But the damage was done.
