Counselor, Santa Rosa Junior College

In 1992, after I contacted CPS and filed a motion for an order to prohibit any further
corporeal punishment by Audrey Spall, she subsequently filed this responsive
declaration, signed under penalty of perjury, wherein she explains that she is not
the child abuser she appeared to be.

"I do not inflict corporeal punishment on my daughter."

"I did not use drugs prior to meeting Father."

Here is a scan of a letter Audrey Spall's previous boyfriend, David Pitocco, wrote to her during their break up wherein he states,

"... you make no mention of all the coke that went up your nose. Let's just consider my drug expenses."

At trial, Judge Sater allowed Spall and her attorney to discuss my entire drug history at length, going back 20 years, on the record.

When it came my turn to document Spall's drug history, and raise the issue of perjury, Judge Sater suddenly shut off all discussion, and would not allow me to discuss the documents you see at the left, or enter them into evidence.

"I was more interested in your drugs than you."

"Funny how drugs cloud your judgement."

"I do not inflict corporeal punishment on my daughter."


Dad: "So tell me again what happened here?"

Jo: "Hit me."

Dad: "Who?"

Jo: "Mom."

Dad: "When?"

Jo: "Today."
