Father Interferes with Child Custody in Texas

The father of a ten-year-old boy was taken into custody recently after arranging for his son to be taken to Conroe, Texas. The 63-year-old father, William Alva Marshall Jr., violated a court order by hiring a friend to drive his biological son to Conroe where other family members lived. The boy’s mother reported her son missing, which initiated alerts through the media. Shortly thereafter, the boy was found and sent back to his home, unharmed. Marshall was arrested and could face up to two years in prison if convicted of interference with child custody.
