What others have said about Hon. Sheila Tillerson R. Adams

In your mind you are greater than what you are in reality. The deception you operate under is what you try to convince others to believe. You and the judges in the PG county family court have failed families for years. Yvette Cade and Jackie Lewis are PG county family court cases.... it has been years you all have failed citizens.

Althea Davenger was assigned to my child custody case. A case that involved abuse. Judges Crystal Mittelstadet presided over the case. Mittelstadet disregarded her own order and allowed the father of my daughter to move out of state with her. Subsequently a cps case was filed in the state they live in through the police department. Neglect was founded in the case. I now find myself traveling hours to fight a case in another state. if the original case presented was investigated throughly, I would not find my daughter in this state of helplessness. She cries and this man states that I coach her to. I petitioned for a Safety Plan; it was denied. You and your staff has failed the community. You failed children. You failed moms and dads. This is a job fir you ma’am. This was not your calling. You were able to do a job and that’s what you did and are doing.

Government Hogan I am call on you to investigate Sheila Adams of the Prince George’s County Family Court. Cases that warrant investigation are not investigated. Cases involving physical abuse,neglect, and sex abuse. Cases that have been brought to the attention of Sheila Adams for several years and she has yet to address them. She continues to allow judges oversee cases that should not be involved in family court cases.


Comment #: MD7699
Issues of the PG County Family Court Judges violating the rights of children, the rights of women seeking protective orders, parents rights have been presented to you. You have ignored them all. Never have you addressed the issues of children and individuals rights being violated on a gross level and a continuous level.

Should never have been on the bench.

When is she retiring? PG County parents are going months and years without seeing their kids and this Judge doesnt blink an eye to give the parents their due process rights to hearings when matters are escalated to her.

This Judge does not provide any accountability or oversight to the PG County Circuit Court Judges and has caused the * of a child due to her looking the other way. A disgrace. We are writing to 60 Minutes about her lack of diligence that caused this tragedy because of her not taking any action on her Judges.
