So who is taking care of this tender age child while dad is deployed??
and there is the rub. Lassandra has since obtained temp custody but since the baby was taken prior jacob is not charged with a crime, mom does have legal custody rn tho. and the child is not in dads custody as he is overseas.Joann Hoof was born on April 27. Two days later, the baby’s father, Jacob Barajas, took her out of state without her mother’s consent. Lassandra Hoof said she was getting her hospital bag from the Prairie Winds Hotel parking lot when she saw Barajas leave with her baby.
She said she was visiting Barajas at the hotel where he was staying following the birth of the baby. The two are married, but their relationship formed and crumbled in a matter of months.
Wait, now I'm really confused...
If the two parents were legally married at the time of the baby's birth, they would have equal legal rights to the child, regardless of whatever personal issues they were going through. Dad may have taken Joann without Lassandra's consent, but it's not exactly "kidnapping", as far as I can see, unless of course there are other factors involved that were not mentioned here (such as mom filing legal paperwork prior to Joann's birth).
i might have missed it but i didnt see anything concerning.I have a feeling after seeing her FB that there may be issues with mom that can’t be discussed due to being victim friendly. This might explain the lack of action of LE and dad being allowed to keep the baby.
I agree. The post had bothered me when I read it this morning so I looked at her FB. She strikes me as a struggling young Mama, no different than so many others. I see no reason from there too shame or judge her.i might have missed it but i didnt see anything concerning.
I’m not shaming or judging her. Please don’t put words in my mouth. I only observed that dad might be concerned.I agree. The post had bothered me when I read it this morning so I looked at her FB.

So the mom was granted both temporary and then permanent custody by the tribal court but the U.S. Army just chose to ignore that and not do anything to address the fact one of their officers abducted this child?!?! Absolutely unacceptable. My heart breaks for this child and her mother. The U.S. Army needs to be held accountable for their complicity.
