There is another picture of the boy at this link. Sounds like he's wanted is wanted for more crimes against children.

"The man authorities are looking for in connection with the abduction of a young child is also wanted on multiple charges for crimes committed against children.

Terry Dusseault, 38, is wanted on six counts of child sexual assault and endangering the welfare of a child."

oh my god!!!!! this is disguisting.......

I know this is off topic, but there really needs to be some form of world referendum on what to do about child sexual abuse and its ramifications on this world......the cycle needs to be broken....i know not all who are abused go on to abuse, but quite a high percentage do......

and not only that it wrecks their lives.....

I hope they find this boy before this sick man does anything to him......but if he is his dad chances are he may have already if he was at anytime in his care.....

time for some laws to be changed, it is out of control...

From what I understand, the mother is dead so there were no custody hearings, the boy was just never taken away or followed by CYF. The agreed to issue the amber alert due to his mental state when he fled from cops who were trying to arrest him on charges including child rape. So he is a fugitive. I'm glad they issued the alert...following it to the T has resulted in some alerts not being issued.

They still haven't found them.

This one is very close to my heart. I just heard about it from my husband. TJ is my husbands sisters Grandson. TJ's mother (my husbands sisters daughter) died, after TJ was born, from kidney failure...she battled kidney problems her whole life. I thought that the fathers parents got custody (this is what I understood), but am reading now that the father had custody. My husbands sister is on her way now to NJ, from NC, to hopefully pick up TJ. I can not believe this guy had these prior convictions and was allowed access to his son. Believe it or not, my husbands family had no idea he had this criminal history.

I hope I haven't devulged too much personal info here, but I wanted to give an update and a little history on TJ's life.

They still haven't found them.BBM. Yes, this is what I have learned from my husband. After TJ's mom died, custody automatically went to the father. I was under the impression that his parents had custody, but he just lived with them for awhile. I am still trying to find out who knew what about this POS and his history.

Dusseault's son was placed in the custody of the New Jersey Division of Youth and Family Services, but Bewley said family members have expressed interest in caring for the child. The boy's mother is deceased.

By "family members" they mean the fathers family members. This is concerning. We are trying to get info to the maternal grandmother via cell phone (as she is driving up to NJ now) about the fathers family's wishes to have TJ.

I never thought I would be involved in one of these cases that usually I only read about. And, I must say that my family members are not as interested in crime issues as I am. I sincerely doubt they check SO lists or read much about these cases. I am not disparaging them, simply trying to explain why his criminal record may have been missed by them.

I guess since this has been posted in a news article, I can post here.

Dusseault had sole custody of Terry, known as "TJ," after his wife, Schanoie, died of kidney failure in 2002, said Minshew, her aunt.

The couple met when they worked at a carpet store in Goldsboro, N.C., and married in 2000, Minshew said.

Minshew said Dusseault told some North Carolina family members that the charges from 2005 were dismissed. "None of us knew about the conviction," she said.

Dusseault told Minshew that "it was an ex-girlfriend causing him trouble," she recalled. "I believed him."

Also, here's an explanation (not a good one) on why he wasn't on the NJ SO list when he moved to Burlington...

North Carolina, Dusseault, 38, had been convicted of possession of child pornography in 2007, and was a registered sex offender. He was given three months' probation, records show.

His probation was transferred to New Jersey and he was being supervised by a probation officer here, said Keith Acree, spokesman for North Carolina's Department of Correction.

Dusseault was required to register as a sex offender with law enforcement in New Jersey, and did so, officials said.

Burlington County officials notified state officials when Dusseault moved to Lumberton. Sgt. Steven Jones, spokesman for the New Jersey State Police, said the North Carolina charges did not meet New Jersey's requirements to list him as a registered sex offender on the state's Internet registry.

Dusseault completed his probation in June, Acree said.

http://abclocal.go.com/wpvi/story?section=news/crime&id=7631958

Here's a small part of the above linked article...Bolded sections are sickening to me. Nine year old victims, yet he can see his son with DCF supervision ?????

He is charged with sexually assaulting three young girls, and faces two counts of aggravated sexual assault and five counts of endangering the welfare of a child.

Bail was set at $300,000 cash and restraining orders were signed to keep him away from his alleged victims should he make bail.

The crimes allegedly took place between April 2009 and the end of 2009.

Sources say the victims were around nine years old.

If he is to see his son, it will be under the supervision of the Department of Youth and Family Services.

Lumberton man rejects plea deal in sex assault case

Posted: Tuesday, August 2, 2011 5:00 am | Updated: 6:51 am, Tue Aug 2, 2011.

MOUNT HOLLY — A Lumberton man charged with multiple counts of aggravated sexual assault and endangering the welfare of a child rejected a plea deal Monday in Superior Court that would have sent him to prison for 10 years.

Terry Dusseault Jr., 39, was arrested last August after leaving his Canal Circle apartment with his then-8-year-old son, triggering a national Amber Alert for the boy when authorities feared for his safety because of concerns about the defendant’s mental state.
Dusseault fled with the child when he learned charges were pending against him, authorities said. The missing-child alert ended a day later when he and his son were located unharmed in Medford.

Dusseault has been in custody since and has pleaded not guilty to a 19-count indictment that was returned by a Burlington County grand jury in March.

He was indicted on two first-degree counts of aggravated sexual assault, three counts of sexual assault, 11 counts of endangering the welfare of a child, two counts of terroristic threats, and a count of tampering with a witness.

I really hope that the statements made by the defense attorney, in the above article, do not point to any problems with the states case. Just the fact that Dusseault rejected a 10 year plea, makes me nervous about the case. These victims (which are children) have to face this man, in court to testify, and that makes me sick. I wonder, if he's acquitted on these charges, if he has any chance of getting custody of his son back. I am a family member and very worried that the progress TJ has made, since being with the mother's side of the family, will be for naught should this SO regain custody.
