First District Court Reverses Sanctions Not Found in Child’s Best Interest

The First District Court issued a corrected opinion yesterday in Cheek v. Hesik, a case in which the former wife was imprisoned for criminal contempt for alienating the parties’ minor child and interfering with timesharing.  The Court found no error in that finding of contempt, or the bulk of the rulings below.  However, the lower tribunal’s failure to find that the 150 day make-up visitation award, which was to occur in a different state during the school year, failed for its lack of a finding that the award was in the best interests of the minor child.
