ONLY ON 3: Boseman, girlfriend involved in custody battle


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.”
