Dalle will perform community service for violation of custody cases
Distillers frontman Brody Dalle will serve 60 hours of community service and be fined $ 1,000 in response to a violation of a court order that arose amid his current custody case with the Queens singer. the Stone Age Josh Male.
The couple broke up in 2019 and a custody battle fought throughout the year. Dalle’s violation happened in September when she failed to bring her 5-year-old son on a court-ordered custody visit with the QOTSA leader.
Dalle pleaded not guilty to the violation last month. She said in court on Tuesday (November 30): “I did not hold our children. Our children have testified to it. Our children have testified about the abuse they suffered from their father and the reasons they refused to go and continue to refuse to go. “
According to Rolling stone, Homme originally sought a misdemeanor lawsuit against Dalle, seeking five days in jail for the singer or 120 hours of community service through a service such as freeway garbage pickup. Instead, the court ruled that Dalle would be ordered to perform 60 hours of community service and pay the $ 1,000 fine.
“I am relieved by the court’s decision. I don’t think anyone should go to jail or pick up trash for protecting their children, ”Dalle said after the hearing. “As a mother, I will always put my children first and protect them at all costs.”
This is the second part of the ongoing custody battle to be resolved over the past month. On November 20, the court dismissed another contempt charge involving the couple’s 10-year-old son, ruling that the youngster had decided not to visit his father on his own accord. The judge also dismissed charges that the singer prevented Homme from speaking with his sons for a video call.
According to Rolling Stone, Homme said he was “ready to take responsibility for what I do,” but asked the court for “justice” and “a set of rules for both parties.” He added, “I went through a lot of parental alienation in a short period of time. This family is in grave danger and therefore fractured and torn. All I want is to see my kids. I want my mother to see her grandchildren. I want my dad to see his grandchildren.
Upon his sentencing, Judge Lawrence Riff pleaded with the couple to find a cordial way of co-parenting, saying, “What I’m hearing, I hope, is that (both sides) want the same. They want a healed family with three very adorable children who need the help of two loving parents. Both parties want it.
Dalle and Homme are both set to return to court on December 3 where it will be determined where Dalle will fulfill his community service obligation.
