    I’m new to this thread, following of course.

    I just noticed that he also has a candle business based out of Delphi. It appears that he has had this for several years: https://www.manta.com/c/mxj1xnf/astonishing-aroma-candle-co

    His eBay listings for Astonishing Aroma Candles can be found here if interested : astonishing_aroma on eBay

    There is also a business FB page, but nothing new on it. (I don’t have FB so I’m not sure if I’m seeing everything available)

    Just a casual observation that the business info on Manta lists him as the contact person.

    Edit: link to store home page ebay

    I think so too. I wonder if he sold at local flea markets and festivals?

    I recall being a teen girl and loving to buy these for for teachers, aunts, and friends.

    that looks like a front.

    a lot of the reviews are duplicate posts - 4 and 5 of the same review from multiple reviewers.

    You get a review for every item you purchase. If someone purchased 5 scents, they get 5 reviews. A lot of active buyers and sellers just copy/paste their positive reviews. Saves time.

    Speaking of reviews, there is an interesting review of his Flora PK on TripAdvisor from 4/26/2019.

    I wonder what that was all about?

    Although he calls himself Joe, he's Mark here.

    Does that mean removing the no contact order?

    I don't understand the legalities, but I think it means MJS is petitioning to have it "vacated", so that he can have visitation with his daughter? He's pleaded "not guilty", right? I'm guessing the judge will make that decision? Someone, anyone help us to understand this development :oops: MOO

    You may be right but I thought it might mean he wanted to have contact with his wife perhaps for work purposes. No way will they allow contact with the children IMO. But I am only guessing so any help from anyone who has experience, is appreciated.

    Ah, yes, that could be the reason as visiting with his daughter seems ludicrous :rolleyes:

    I doubt the judge would allow any contact with his daughters prior to trial. That would potentially be putting them in harms way.
    The judge might however allow contact with his wife as you mentioned, for work purposes.

    I'm inept at legalese. Could you translate that for me? :p:D
    Has the motion to vacate the no contact order been granted?
