She would love nothing more than for this story to go away, but the ongoing custody battle between state Senator Julia Boseman, and her ex, Melissa Jarrell continues to make headlines. Boseman became the topic of a radio talk show again today regarding a recent court appearance for violating her custody agreement. WWAY checked on the status of that case and learned that while Jarrell had filed a motion to hold the Senator in contempt for violating their agreement, the motion was denied. Boseman's attorney Jim Lea said, "There was an honest disagreement about what the clause in the consent order said, and when that was brought to our attention, Julia corrected her actions, she was perfectly honest in court, and there was no reason to hold her in contempt of court." Ms. Boseman was supposed to get permission from Ms. Jarrell before hiring a babysitter to care for their son, which she failed to do. It turns out Ms. Jarrell had hired private investigator Marc Benson to follow Ms. Boseman around in Raleigh, and take video of her violating the terms of their custody agreement.

Honest disagreement about what the clause in the consent order said????? Has it been fogotten that Julia Boseman is a LAWYER???? This is no honest mistake. She is playing the system. Melissa Jarrell knows this and knows that Boseman is "pushing the envelope" Julia Boseman should be treated like everyone else. Throw her in jail until she learns to follow the law like everyone else. The sooner she is out of office, the better our City will be.
My goodness, enough already. It is sad that a child will suffer because parties in a "divorce" cannot be upstanding and just do the right thing. They have to drag it through the mud. And being a public figure makes it worse. Let this private matter remain private and stop being evil to a person you once loved!!
she lost her house, she lost her girlfriend.....lord not her child too!
She's not the birth mother. North Carolina does not allow her to adopt the child. The child is not her, she is not either and adoptive mother or a biological mother. The radio said she was found in civil contempt this morning. I guess that is different from criminal contempt. Just like Boseman to announce to the world, "I am not a criminal."
North Carlina may not allow her to adopt, but Durham County does. She is the adoptive parent.
I am so tired of her. Can she go away now?
Yes, she has an opponent running against her. Vote for him.
Ms. Jarrell has no idea the damage she is doing to her child. Like any situation when parents separate one trys to hurt the other when they get angry but in the end the child always ends up hurt the most- grow up, let it go and move on!!
they'd be wearing an orange jumpsuit right now.
Im confused, did she violate the terms of the custody agreement or not? "There was an honest disagreement about what the clause in the consent order said, and when that was brought to our attention, Julia corrected her actions, she was perfectly honest in court, and there was no reason to hold her in contempt of court." She did wrong but she was honest about it in court so the judge didnt find her guilty? IS that right? If so Ill have to remember that when I get caught for DWI, cause any more of this Boseman stuff will drive a man to drink. "yer honor I didnt know I was drunk"
Julia's ex needs to get a life. Leave her alone. She loves her son, and yes she may have given birth, buy Julia is still a parent to this child. Anyone who has seen these two together cannot deny this. Julia is a very loving parent to her son.
Children should not be drug into any of this and what this ex partner is doing is wrong. I lived through hell with custody of my daughter and fought till the end. She died 3 years ago in March. She was 16 and overdosed on pain meds. Her mother screwed her head up so bad. She played games like this woman is playing and kids don't know what to believe! My life has been a mess of screwed up jobs and relationships because of what all transpired. Its really messed up my head. Its jealousy plain and simple. The courts need to keep people like her ex from making stupid claims! A baby sitter! Come on!
