A convicted sex offender spent six years in jail for allegedly raping his then 6-year-old step daughter. Now, in a shocking courtroom decision, he won sole custody of his 6-year-old biological daughter.
“I don’t understand how a sex offender can just walk in the courtroom and just take her after I’ve had her for six years,” said Lisa Knight, the man’s ex-wife.
Nicholas Elizondo, 55, filed for custody after Knight stopped granting him visits with their child, Sarah.
After one visit, Knight alleges, Sarah came home saying that her half brother, 19, touched her private parts.
“While she was in the bathtub she said ‘Something really bad happened,'” Knight’s cousin Jodi Coomer told Oklahoma City station KFOR-TV.
Knight’s attorney, Valerie Williford of Oklahoma City, says that Oklahoma County Judge Howard Haralson possibly retaliated against Knight for allegedly fabricating the story to guarantee custody.
