When the Court Protects the Abuser
RAPE VICTIM SUED TO PAY RAPIST CHILD SUPPORT
October 18, 2017
Dear Governor Brown, Attorney General Rosenblum, U.S. Senator Wyden, U.S. Senator Merkley, Oregon State Bar Executive Director Hierschbiel, President Levelle, Oregon State Bar Board of Governors & Lawmakers,
My name is Coral Anika Theill. I lived in Oregon for 20 years [Corvallis and Independence]. I am a domestic violence and rape victim/survivor. In 1995 I sought safety from my abusive husband. I almost died before I escaped. I have been legally stalked by my ex-husband for the past 20 years - 45 court related hearings to date. My divorce cost nearly $250,000. I have represented myself in court for the past 20 years due to poverty. I have lived under a state address protection program from my ex-husband, Mr. V. Martin Warner since 1999 due to being a victim of domestic violence, rape and threats from my ex-husband. Due to disabilities and ongoing court abuse, I ended up living out of my car for three years.
After surviving 20 years of multiple pregnancies, sleep deprivation, ritual, emotional, and mental abuse, torture coercive control, rapes and physical assaults within my marriage, I suffered a severe physical/emotional breakdown in 1993 due to the constant ongoing abuse. While in this near catatonic state, I was again physically assaulted, tortured and raped by my husband, causing my eighth pregnancy despite the warnings of my doctors.
I survived and was able to recover, birth my baby and cherish bonding and breastfeeding. After undergoing several tests and psychiatric evaluations, my physicians stated I was completely recovered. In 1995, my OB/GYN physician, Dr. Charles D. South, Albany, Oregon, recommended I divorce my abusive husband.
Leaving a family system that condones domestic violence, rape, the molestation and rape of children, psychological murder, coercive control, spiritual and ritual abuse [cults] was my only safe and sane choice. *Please read how church leaders and ministries supported my abusers - Marty Warner Abuses Wife & Children
You are invited to attend my 46th court related hearing due to my divorce in 1997 at the Polk County Courthouse, Dallas, Oregon, NOVEMBER 2, 2017,10:00 am.
Deputy District Attorney John Adams represents my ex-husband - my abuser and rapist. At a hearing I was not informed about in 1999, I was sued for child support - twice of what I earn as a disabled woman. The State of Oregon will be garnishing my under poverty social security [disability] check to pay the remaining $3,815.74 of this fraudulent child support judgment per Polk County Case No. 95P-20693. In addition to paying my ex-husband child support, I also paid for out-of-state college tuition, housing, transportation, medical and legal expenses in the amount of $15,000 to my son, Aaron Warner from 1998-2002.
Throughout the years, several friends, including Glen Schmauder, contacted my ex-husband to request that my ex-husband dismiss this judgment - TO NO AVAIL.
My ex-husband, V. Martin (Marty) Warner, owns a home and 12 acres in Independence, Oregon worth approximately $500,000 and works as an engineer for the City of Monmouth, in the Public Works department and collects social security income. I was disabled at the time of the original child support judgment of 1999.
Many people are appalled and outraged about this case, (rape victim loses custody of her child(ren) to rapist and is ordered to pay her rapist child support. Polk County District Attorney dismissed the rape charges and sues rape victim for child support. *Case History
This year I wrote an OPEN LETTER to Oregon Governor Kate Brown, Lawmakers, Clergy & Advocates. I received no response. I hope you will take the time to read this summary of my life story and plight:
Nothing prepared me for the horrors I have experienced in Oregon Courts for the past 22 years. Marital and ritual abuse evolved into legal abuse. My case history in Oregon courts has been documented by physicians and advocates, including my counselor and mentor of 20 years, Barbara A. May, PhD, RN PMHP, Professor Emerita of Nursing, Linfield College, Portland, Oregon, as one of Oregon's most violent and obscene rape and domestic violence cases. My husband used coercive control, isolation and intimidation tactics to strip me of my personhood, safety and freedoms as a United States citizen.
When I sought safety for my children and myself in January 1996, the Court allowed me to live in hiding with my young children prior to the court hearings, due to the testimony and affidavits of numerous witnesses. I retained an attorney and reported the crimes that had been committed against my children and me. Belts, fists, logs, fraternity boards, threats, coercive control, gaslighting, cults and bullying were my ex-husband's favorite weapons of choice. *Read affidavits filed in court documenting my ex-husband's abuse.
The price for my own safety and freedom in 1996 was an imposed, unnatural and unwanted separation from my eight children, including my nursing infant. The injustice committed against me is not just the physical separation from my children, but the willful desecration of the mother-child relationship and bond, a sacred spiritual and emotional entity.
I wrote and published my memoir, BONSHEÁ Making Light of the Dark, to help raise awareness of the abuses battered women and rape victims suffer in the Oregon court system. Dr. Barbara May used my memoir as a college text for nursing students studying domestic violence at Linfield College, Portland, Oregon. I attached Dr. May's October 2017 Letter of Support to the Court and her resume for your review.
"I recommend this book for health care providers, those in the criminal justice system, and volunteers or helpers of any kind to get insights and clarity about the complex dynamics of domestic violence and its toxic effects to individuals and society-and what needs to be done to eradicate this pandemic problem." – Barbara A. May, PhD, RN PMHP, Professor of Nursing, Linfield College, Portland, Oregon
"BONSHEÁ also illustrates the degree to which the legal system can also be used as a vehicle to further perpetuate abuse even after the victim has chosen to take a stand against the abuse. In BONSHEÁ, Coral Theill has clearly chosen to take a courageous stand. It is a stand that comes with a cost, but whose dividends are measured in the strength of the soul." – John Haroldson, District Attorney, Benton County District Attorney's Office, Corvallis, Oregon
"I would love to discover that every judge, every minister, every person who seeks justice, would read this book! I have consulted thousands of abused women and know that the injustice Coral suffered, the loss of her children, is an all to common experience of abused women seeking to protect their children and to save themselves." - Patricia Evans, Author, The Verbally Abusive Relationship
For the past several years I have been a guest speaker at colleges, public meetings, libraries, radio and TV shows to help raise awareness about domestic violence, rape, child abuse/molestation, judicial injustice, maternal alienation and court sanctioned kidnapping. I hope to participate in a documentary in the near future.
The treatment I received in Oregon’s courts was more abuse and humiliation. Sexual crimes I endured as a child, my breakdown, my fertility and the 'rape' by my husband all became subjects for ridicule in court.
In March 1996, Judge Albin Norblad and my ex-husband laughed in court about the rapes I suffered while I could not care for myself, was mentally and physically incapacitated and was nearly catatonic during this time [1993-1994]. You can read the transcript here:
(Chapter 743, Oregon Laws 1971, 163.375) My ex-husband repeatedly raped and beat me during the period of my illness. I was pregnant twice during this time. While in this debilitating condition in 1994, my husband and his pastors left me at the "Wings of Love" half-way house on Killingsworth, in Portland, Oregon, to punish and "break me" (their words) to the will of God. The house was a shelter for ex-cons, street people and prostitutes. It was filthy and infested with rats and lice. My husband’s debt-free estate, at this time, was over a quarter- of- a million dollars.
I have extensive documentation including affidavits from physicians, witnesses, co-workers and neighbors, court transcripts of 45 hours of depositions, all court audio tapes and videos, medical, hospital and mental reports to substantiate my story. I was a nurturing and loving mother during the years of our marriage.
I filed a report to the Oregon State Bar regarding ethics violations – to NO AVAIL. My physician reported the Court's abuse to the Judicial Ethics Commission – to NO AVAIL.
Barbara A. May, PhD, RN PMHP, wrote a two-page MEMO to Kingsley Click, Oregon Court Administrator, reporting the abuse I suffered in Judge Paula Brownhill’s courtroom– TO NO AVAIL. We wrote our letters of complaint because Judge Brownhill serves as “chair” of the Oregon State Advisory Board Committee. I was shocked to receive a personal email from Judge Paula Brownhill asking me what was my problem was. I did not respond to Judge Brownhill’s email and found it inappropriate for her to have contacted me.
Many mothers who seek safety from abuse are routinely prohibited from having even the most basic contact with their own children, not because they were unfit parents, but because they were outspent, out represented, and out-maneuvered in a court atmosphere that seems to favor those who inflict domestic violence.
Batterers frequently use the law and the legal system as a means of enforcing their rights and demands and for continuing to persecute their victims, both mothers and children. “Fathers who battered the mother are twice as likely to seek sole custody of their children as are non-violent fathers.”—American Psychological Association
Removing a mother’s children from her, when she has committed no crime, is cruel and unusual punishment. The physical, mental, and emotional toll of surviving the negligence, abuse and trauma from the individuals who are part of my story will last forever.
Forcibly taking a mother's children, and then controlling her emotionally by withholding contact must be publicly recognized as one of the greatest forms of 'mis-use' of the American justice system and one of the greatest hidden vehicles for wide-spread socially approved physical and emotional abuse and control.
Battered women may lose their babies and children, their homes, their friends and their livelihood. Survivors of childhood abuse will often even lose their families. Rarely does society recognize the dimensions and long lasting effects of this reality for the victim.
Most victims have to recover without the conscience of their communities, cultures, and countries validating their story, without justice, and without restitution. I truly believe, though, that we are victimized twice if we do not seek justice.
If you have further questions, please contact me. I look forward to hearing from you.
