Does Governor Scott’s political appointee Judge Dawn Nichols protect abusers?
Is Judge Dawn Nichols of Deland Florida softy on abusers? Kevin Cushing has a history of abusing his first partner, his wife, and his child. Katie Cushing has been abused by her husband, Kevin Cushing. Kevin Cushing has abused his 7 year old son and the mother of that son but Judge Nichols is turning a blind eye to all the proof and testimony. Judge Dawn Nichols of Deland Florida does nothing for Katie Cushing the abuse victim. She is leaning toward the abuser who is a convicted felon and has multiple arrests.
I researched on line and found another case right away where Judge Dawn Nichols seemed to side with the abuser too. Read the case below:
My sister and her husband live in Florida and have had a horrible problem with Judge Dawn Nichols regarding care…
My sister and her husband live in Florida and have had a horrible problem with Judge Dawn Nichols regarding care of her husbands 13 and 15 yr old. children.
She refused to let the father present any evidence of the girls abuse at the hands of their mother. She refused a guardian ad litum. She refused to let the girls talk to anyone in the court.She denied the father any visitation with his children after the girls were returne to the mother yesterday.
The mother voluntarily handed the children over to the father in December as she was being investigated by DCF at the time for child abuse. The mother never called once nor asked to see the girls. The girls are terrified, are going back into an abusive environment, and the judge will not allow one comment from the father. She said one word and she would put him in jail, and if the girls refused to come, she would have the police handcuff them and drag them back to their mother’s.
There is much much more to this story, but one other note, the Judge worked for the same law firm that represented the mother during the hearing. The father was not represented as he and my sister can not afford a lawyer, yet make too much for Legal Aid. The judge would not let him speak and berated him as the other lawyers laughed at him. Subsequently, the judge has denied ANY priveleges, visitation phone calls everyhting as she said the father denied the mother access to the children since december.

Help, there is something very very fishy about a judge who would have police drag children back to a home where DCF has been involved ! Keep in mind, they cannot afford a lawyer. They live paycheck to paycheck, but have a home and jobs. Thank you in advance. Is there anyway to have the judge investigated?
We had the same problem. Judge Dawn Nichols seems to have an pre-determined attitude against the victim. Katie Cushing has been abused yet Judge Dawn Nichols wants to side with a convicted felon with many arrests. Governor Scott’s political appointee Judge Nichols seems to have a warm spot for abusers.
She won’t even reach out to Department of Children and Families to learn about the other abuse Kevin Cushing has done. I too agree that there is something very, very fishy about a judge who would have children baby sat by a paternal grandfather that has been convicted of child cruelty. I find it very, very fishy that the judges attitude toward an abuse victim was so harsh. I find it very, very fishy that Judge Dawn Nichols Governor Scott’s political appointee would believe testimony of 2 convicted felons (with over 15 arrests between them) over law abiding citizens.
Please help protect Katie Cushing and her children from further abuse. Let’s stop Kevin Cushing the serial abuser from hurting any kids.
