Rosario was arrested on Thursday, her children taken, and she is sitting in a jail cell right now facing 10 years in prison, terrified for her children’s safety.

Why would a loving mother be so cruelly arrested and jailed?
Because her 6 year-old daughter disclosed sexual abuse—again, as she has done for years. But this time a forensic medical exam corroborated it.
On October 6, 2021, Rosario’s daughter disclosed sexual abuse in a forensic interview, and a forensic medical exam found physical evidence consistent with sexual abuse. This new evidence documented by an MD meant that Tulsa, Oklahoma Family Court Judge Tammy Bruce was going to have a much harder time continuing her cover up. She had been dismissing the evidence of sexual abuse since 2019, and physical abuse of all three of Rosario’s children since 2018.
The solution Judge Bruce implemented is a tactic commonly used by judges all over the country and world: silence the children by taking them away from their mother completely; then use the mother’s contact (or lack thereof) with the children as leverage to silence her. Fait accompli!
The sabotage of Rosario’s case was accomplished in record time. Just one week after the medical corroboration of the sexual abuse, Rosario lost custody at a bogus hearing.
Judge Bruce could not switch custody to the father, as he was under investigation for the sexual abuse by CPS and law enforcement, as well as being under criminal indictment for domestic violence. So she used another well-worn strategy: give temporary custody to a family member or friend of the father, where the children can be silenced, threatened, and pressured into recanting.
Instead of switching custody temporarily herself, Judge Bruce colluded with other judges in Probate and DV Court. The Restraining Order cases against the father and his mother were suspiciously disappeared, and on October 13th Rosario’s case was transferred to Probate Court, where a guardianship was granted to the father’s mother, without Rosario there.
Rosario was expected to hand over her children at a hearing in Probate Court the next week. She had not been given proper notice nor a chance to respond, so she did not show up at the hearing. Despite the obvious procedural improprieties, substantial evidence of the father’s abuse, and no evidence Rosario was abusive or unfit, Judge Kurt Glassco issued a bench warrant for Rosario’s arrest for failure to appear, with a $10,000 bond (later reduced). Then he sealed Rosario’s entire case record in an effort to shield all of the judges’ fraudulent actions from public scrutiny.
That was all in October.
On Thursday, Rosario was arrested while in a domestic violence shelter in Arkansas, where she was obtaining medical treatment for her son. She will be arraigned in Arkansas at an extradition hearing tomorrow and will likely be extradited back to Oklahoma, where she faces a serious felony “child stealing” charge.
*Just one week to a bogus order to remove Rosario’s children from her, two weeks to a bogus bench warrant for her arrest, and less than three months to an arrest on a felony criminal charge punishable by up to 10 years in prison. They are obviously desperate to silence her and her children.
Rosario’s case is following a predictable pattern of Family Court judges around the world actively disregarding and covering up abuse by fathers, especially sexual abuse.
The Women’s Coalition is documenting these cases so we can support our contention that this is epidemic. If you are a mother whose case involved sexual abuse, please fill out this form and share with other mothers. It only takes a few minutes and you may remain anonymous.
Thank you for participating and helping end the crisis!

Same here in France, I lost my son custudy after accusing the father of violence and drugs, the custudy went to him and I had to pay 3000 euros.
I am in this same situation with Tulsa co right now. 😭
My daughter has told so many professionals about the abuse. DHS said she was too young to interview so they kept unsubstantiating it.
This is like reading our case. Right down to taking her and placing her with the abusers family.
