Residence of Sapirmans and the fight for Jonathan’s custody
When the petition was filed, Jonathan Sapirman was 16 years old and at the time, he was residing in Greenwood, Indiana. The case was then handled by Judge Kevin Barton. The father’s name is Jeffrey Sapirman and the mother’s name is Michelle Newton, who belongs to Indianapolis, Indiana. Justin Sapirman is the elder brother who at the time wanted to be named guardian for Jonathan.
The petition alleged that Sapirman was in a week-to-week motel with his mother until March 2017 and since March 2017, he has been living with Justin Sapirman. The court documents say that the parents were divorced in Ohio and the mother was then described as the custodial parent. The petition alleged that the mother had to suffer job loss and had to go into a shelter. Meanwhile, Jonathan started living with his elder brother Justin at the time. After an undescribed incident, the Department of Child Services had control of the minor Jonathan and he was then placed in a foster family but was later returned to live with his elder brother.
Jonathan was removed from his foster family after he committed abuse, according to the court documents. The reason was stated that Jonathan had a great sense of antipathy against his mother where the cause of antipathy was not declared. For the sake of the minor Jonathan Sapirman, his elder brother Justin Sapirman was given the authority of being his temporary guardian. The court ordered Jonathan to attend Greenwood High School without being tardy or absent.
A letter by the mother for Jonathan’s custody
Later in her letter to the court, the mother of Justin Sapirman and Jonathan Sapirman alleged that she was subjected to taking the custody of his youngest son. She stated that Jonathan had been deprived of a positive, loving, nurturing environment and a stable home. She also stated that her older son has other demons in his life and Jonathan had been arrested or suspended from the school where he intended to be studying.
On the other hand, the Police Chief stated that Sapirman was believed to be a graduate of Greenwood High School but the mother said in her letter that he had been suspended and was arrested while committing an assault against another student. However, in the press conference on Monday, 18th July 2022, the police said that Sapirman had no criminal record except a juvenile record in his name. He was accused of fighting at the school and was accused of a juvenile runaway.
