Nationally syndicated radio talk host Alex Jones will share joint custody, which means that he will have visitation rights, but Kelly Jones and her lawyers want to begin the new arrangement with a period of time in which the children live exclusively with her while they adjust to the new situation, followed by increased visitation with their father.
The Austin-American reports she also wants the family involved in a program for undoing parental alienation, the phenomenon in which one parent turns the children against anothe parent, which she and her lawyers argued was what happened to her when the children began living with her husband. She said during the trial she is thinking of writing a book about.
“I am so grateful to God that he has kept me and my family strong through this,” Kelly Jones said after the verdict. “I just pray that from what’s happend with my family people can really understand what parental alienation syndrome is and get an awareness of it and we can stop this from happening in the future.”
As the last juror left, unlcocking his bicycle from a bike rack outside the courthouse for the ride home on the cooly comfortable night, he said the jurors thought both Joneses were good parents - “that’s why we deliberated so long.”
The juror, who did not identify himself, said that Infowars did not figure in the verdict.
