WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Former state Sen. Julia Boseman is again in the middle of a child custody suit, this time involving the children of her live-in girlfriend.

According to court documents, the 12-year-old and seven-year=old were living with their mother, Lala Ohnmacht in a New Hanover County home. The children’s father, Charles Ohnmacht, says his ex lives there with Boseman.

Charles Ohnmacht filed for emergency custody, claiming his ex-wife and Boseman use illegal drugs, like cocaine, abuse alcohol in front of the children and left the 12-year-old alone, who was found walking down Carolina Beach Road.

In July, we reported Boseman was accused of hitting the owner of a Wilmington restaurant. That allegedly happened in front of the seven-year old. That violence was also cited in the paperwork filing for emergency custody.

Monday, a judge ordered Lala Ohnmacht to submit to a drug test within 24 hours.

We called Boseman to ask her about these allegations. She denied doing drugs and eventually hung up.

Boseman currently shares custody of a son with her ex-partner, Melissa Jarrell. She also shares custody of a two-year-old with ex-wife Chrystal Medlin. According to Medlin’s attorney Duke Lineberry, “The results of the motion may have an impact on this case… Right now, can’t say whether it will or not.”

  • Child Custody Relief is probably the worst part of a divorce. Parents love their children and want the best for them.

    I am glad that people are finally realizing the true character of Boseman. Those of us who know her personally and have been negatively affected by her have been speaking out since 2006 and received harsh backlash for a long time. I’m glad that it is public knowledge now and gay people aren’t backing her just because she is gay. I would be much more impressed with her if she was HUMAN.

    For someone who “testified” for Julia you sure don’t seem to know what you’re talking about. The court did not uphold “parental rights” for Julia. The court overturned the adoption. What they did was give her visitation rights, which she clearly should not have. Maybe Lala’s ex-husband is concerned about his children. I would be.

    I am really surprised that an attorney and ex senator would fly to New York after only two months of dating and marry a Pure Gold Stripper.

    Married? The State of NC DOES NOT recognize the marraige of same sex partners! She went all the way to CANADA to marry Ms. Medlin…..and a little FYI….. I also have personal knowledge of the extent she loves her two sons and I also know she is about a breathe away from losing her right to practice law in the State of NC…. she is burned way to many women who were more than willing to help her and stand by her…. I almost feel bad for LALA…. she has no idea exactly what kind of woman Julia REALLY is….

    Let’s start with the first inaccuracy of the WWAY piece that Lala is Julia Boseman’s “life in girl friend.” They have married. Regardless of the retrograde attitude toward gay partners in NC, Julia Boseman and Lala Ohnmacht are wed. I have personal knowledge of the extent to which Ms. Boseman loves her two sons. She has made sure that she is in their lives and has continued to go to SC to be with Jacob for several years. I also have testified as a character witness, UNDER OATH, and heard all of the actual evidence regarding her fitness as a parent. I testified on her behalf some years ago at a custody hearing. Does it matter to any of you trash talkers that the courts, not esp. friendly to gay parents, have upheld Ms. Boseman’s parental rights? So while you are searching around for the stones to cast at her, since all of you are so clearly without any sin and are qualified to judge, I am not surprised that Ms. Ohnmacht’s ex-cop, ex-husband is pissed off – they hate it when the little woman prefers another woman.

    Question…how long is going to take for the State Bar association to take her attorney license. She is making a joke out of the New Hanover county judicial system. Maybe Julie and Brian Burger ought to get together maybe they could make as a couple????
