Contempt and Perjury in A Missouri Case

It seems that one or both parties perjures his or herself in nearly every divorce case.

In one recent one out of Clinton County, those lies came back to haunt the wife in that case. She testified at trial that her husband had certain valuable items of construction equipment and vehicles. After the trial, and the denial of coverage on the homeowners insurance policy, the husband dug until he found his property hidden across the street from where his former wife lived with her new husband, who happened to also own a similar construction business.

After more deception and trial of the ex-wife for contempt, the Clinton County Circuit Court judge jailed her until she pays $90,000 or returns the property items. The Judge declared her perjury, lies, and intentional deception to be the most serious he had seen.

So good to see this lady jailed instead of slapped on the wrist.
