Tennessee CPS Attorney Connie Reguli Arrested for Defending A Mother’s Constitutional Rights to Due Process
Attorney Connie Reguli turned herself into authorities in Brentwood, Tennessee today (July 17, 2019) after learning that there was a warrant out for her arrest. She was released the same day without bail, on her own recognizance. Attorney Connie Reguli is well-known to the readers of Health Impact News and our MedicalKidnap.com website. She is the head of the LawCare Family Law Center in Tennessee, and also the founder of the Family Forward Project, which advocates for the rights of parents and children nationwide on matters related to abuses in Child Protective Services and Foster Care. She is a frequent speaker nationally, and educates legislators on matters related to family law and child welfare. She has been practicing law defending the Constitutional rights of parents for over 25 years. Yesterday she received a phone call informing her that there was a warrant out for her arrest, encouraging her to turn herself in rather than having police come in to storm her office or home to arrest her. Attorney Reguli states that she has: "never broken the law and never been arrested for nothing. I am 67 years old, I've never had a DUI... never had a single criminal charge. And here we are because I tried to get a parent due process, which means notice and opportunity to be heard. I am now going to be criminally charged for that." At a recent legislative session in Tennessee before a committee that provides oversight for Tennessee's Department of Children Services (DCS) Attorney Reguli says: "I told them that this system is so broken, and that parents' rights are being violated, that nobody will stand up for them. There's no oversight, there's nobody looking over their shoulder. I've been an attorney for 25 years. I know the law. I know what Constitutional rights are for parents, and I have been a thorn in their side."
