Victimized By Two Men And The Justice System As Well
Christy DiMaggio is a strong woman that is fighting for custody of her child, a child that the courts awarded to his father, a drug user, who beat Christy and numerous other women in the past. Christ DiMaggio was not always the strong woman she is today and that led her to trust an unethical lawyer who took advantage of her. Christy Dimaggio used to be naive about the Justice System and the “good old boy network” that gave her and her son a Judge, an unethical Lawyer and a Guardian Ad Litem that destroyed her life and very nearly her mental health. Christy Dimaggio is not perfect and has made some bad decisions, but she did nothing that broke the law or endangered her son.
Today Host Elisa Brietenbach talks with Christy DiMaggio in the second of three interviews in which she will talk about the lawyer that took advantage of her when she was at her most vulnerable and address the multitude of ways the legal system has worked to destroy her credibility, her mental health and give her son to her abuser. This is a story that has been covered in detail in The Pitch and now you get to hear Christy’s cautionary tale directly from her.
