Is Kelly Hawse-Koziol A Custodial Sociopath?

Kelly Hawse-Koziol and court-appointed child lawyer Willam Koslosky tried to slip by a fraudulent relocation notice to court and father with a confirmation report containing dad’s e-mail address gmai. com (without letter “l”). The family judge later disqualified from the case excused it, thereby allowing a childless millionaire to play dad at the new residence without the real father’s knowledge until discovered almost a year later.

You’ve seen the programs: Investigation Discovery, Unsolved Mysteries, Forensic Files, Snapped, Dateline and American Greed to name a few. They can’t grow fast enough to keep pace with the psychos and sociopaths they feature, often resulting from fatherless homes and family court dysfunction.

Unfortunately these programs focus on horrific crimes, murders and Ponzi schemes. What if one of them or a new one focused on custody crimes. It’s not yet recognized as such but many parent-child murders have already been labeled as PAS or Parent Alienation Syndrome. A more comprehensive depiction might be “Custodial Sociopath.”

Okay you read it here first, maybe it’ll catch on and one day become one of the countless conditions recognized in the psychiatrists’ DSM-5 manual. It could lead to legal grounds for a custody change, even a termination of parental rights given the severe harm it inflicts on “noncustodial” victims  and their innocent children. Here is a quote from one of my reports:

For now we’ll have to offer it to the public as a theory or rule of law that is long overdue. Like any such rule, we have to apply it to a real case to make for widespread acceptance. And boy do I have a case. It’s called Kelly Hawse-Koziol, a Frankfort, New York high school teacher and “custodial parent” of my daughters who was transformed into a “custodial sociopath” by a corrupt family court enterprise.

Her crimes were many but never prosecuted because to do so would mean to arrest countless criminals in these courts who profit from “custody wars.” In the case of Kelly Hawse, she did it through fraudulent and dismissed offense petitions, routine perjury and the brainwashing of two innocent girls.

Many “custodial” mothers have responded to my last post regarding these “sexist courts” as preposterous because it featured the “bizarre” notion that men can be sexually harassed (or framed for money or attention). These feminists were not expecting the tables to be turned on them after all the groping and sexual harassment claims they’ve been promoting lately.

When I raised the undeniable discrimination and harassment of dads in our nation’s domestic courts, I was accosted on Facebook with such outdated “Rip Van Winkle” claims that a man’s duty is simply to support and protect children. I do not know which rock these types crawled from under but this is 2017 not Pleasant Valley circa 1950s.

You can’t have it both ways. Equal rights means what it says. The Constitution does not incur a disappearing act at the steps of family court, the last bastion of institutional discrimination (against male parents) remaining untouched in America today. Census Bureau reports prove it, 85% paying so-called “child support” are still men!

It has led to a fatherless America and crimes of unprecedented variety featured on these programs. Anyone doubting the role of women in this epidemic should search Albuqueque, New Mexico and the many horrific murders committed by gold diggers and “black widow” convicts there in recent years.

One of them was Ellen Snyder. Other than her murder conviction, the narrative can be compared to Kelly Hawse-Koziol and her murder of my father-daughter relationships in order to have me replaced by a childless, millionaire named Joseph Flihan, Jr. This is a wanna-be dad who exhibits some serious defects that any real father would want investigated.

Ellen Snyder did not marry “for better or for worse.” When her second husband was doing well financially with a new home for her son of an earlier marriage and infant daughter of the current one, all was good. But when he was diagnosed with MS leaving him disabled at that  dream home, Ellen decided to shoot him dead in his bed. She actually managed to convince her son to help her bury him under a slab of concrete (new driveway).

But eventually the teen high school kid at the time could not live with his conscience and helped convict his sicko mom years later. In the meantime she had everyone looking for the missing dad in another state under the fiction that he had run off to live with a gay lover and therefore ending all contacts with his native community and family.

How is this mentality any different from the psycho “custodial parents” who brainwash their children to commit the crime of parental alienation? In either case of physical or relational murder, the “noncustodial parent” is rendered dead to the children along with the victim’s extended family. Kelly Hawse-Koziol murdered my father-daughter relations. And she did it for money, sex and status with alarming parallels to Ellen Snyder.

Let us join together to end Parent Alienation Syndrome and freaks like Kelly Hawse-Koziol, America’s first “outed” custodial sociopath.

Kelly Hawse-Koziol: Frankfort-Schuyler Teacher and … Mom?

Star Witness for Kelly Hawse-Koziol being hauled off to prison on $10,000 bail in 2013 for presenting herself falsely as an attorney in court. We gave the judge a tip prior to her arrival and still she continued her crimes until convicted this year and sent back to jail.


Frankfort-Schuyler Central School District is an all-American school in upstate, New York. Benefited by quaint restaurants, attractive homes and a spirited community , the pride in its students and staff is everywhere. In fact, if you’re driving along Interstate 90 or State Route 5S on a game day, you might even hear its residents cheering their Maroon Knights to victory.

Yes, Frankfort-Schuyler has stellar qualities but unfortunately it also has a teacher named Kelly Hawse-Koziol. Many of our followers have asked about Leon’s ex-spouse during his travels across the country advocating for parental rights. Out of concern for the children we have refrained until their relocation was made to the home of an unfit substitute father and concealed on the family court record for eight months without consequence.

It is well proven by now that Kelly’s immunity from accountability has arisen because Leon has been exposing court corruption. Various family judges have abused public office by exploiting her serial petitions and fabrications over the years. For example she testified that notice of relocation required by custody order was successfully transmitted under the address “” (“l” character missing). Only because of Leon’s persistence was she finally threatened with consequences after the publicized misconduct could no longer be ignored.

All of her offense petitions have been dismissed for lack of evidence since 2006 including a gag order on this website in May. Indeed if Leon had not challenged that order on First Amendment grounds in New York Supreme Court, we could not provide you with today’s feature post. We could not have exposed the misconduct of Leon’s custody judge who was removed from the family court bench for admitting to sexual misconduct on his handicapped five year old niece (today in her adulthood a Leon Koziol supporter), see In re Bryan Hedges, 20 NY3d 677 (2013).

We also could not have exposed “political espionage” being carried out by other judges against Leon in the Syracuse Fifth Judicial District (which includes Herkimer County), see Morin v Tormey, 626 F.3d 40 (2nd Cir. 2011)(Chief Judge James Tormey sued by family court clerk for spying directives resulting in $600,000 liability to taxpayers). The unlawful retributions by those charged with the highest duty of safeguarding our constitutional rights caused judge disqualifications with over 35 trial jurists to date assigned by Judge Tormey to Leon’s family matters, by all indications a nationwide record. This is not “delusion” or “paranoia.” It is shocking fact in an unprecedented case.

Although Kelly Hawse-Koziol has been protected by Leon’s adversaries in these “Kangaroo” family tribunals (description given by a Supreme Court Justice in the Gault case, 387 US 27-28), is she also immune from accountability in her capacity as a teacher? In a recent hearing, one of those adversaries, William “Potatoes” Koslosky, announced falsely to the latest judge that Leon had lodged a report against Hawse-Koziol to the Education Department. A report had, in fact, been filed by an ex-girlfriend due to false police reports in a scheme to cause a break-up. So will another have to be lodged now to make Koslosky an honest lawyer? Is Hawse-Koziol honest when she depicts Leon under oath as anti-mom with a distaste for intelligent women? It is undisputed that he represented a former woman lawyer and president of the National Organization for Women. He remains a dedicated father writing books for intelligent women across the country.

The misconduct of Kelly Hawse-Koziol is so extensive that it should make every parent and student at Frankfort High School very concerned. Take for example an excerpt from one of her many fraudulent petitions so rife with grammatical and spelling errors that the judge had to put in “sic” notes in every sentence. Taken directly from his decision, this is how Hawse-Koziol represented Frankfort-Schuyler’s teaching credentials in our courts of law:

His interaction with her [Father’s girlfriend] infront [sic] of the children are [sic] inappropriate & unhealthy. His… health is deteriorating. He is dillusional [sic] about his (earlier) ex-girlfriend and secretary and I [sic] being friends.

That’s an average of one error per sentence and as many as two in a single phrase. The judge actually missed other errors such as the use of “&” in a formal document. If this is how a high school teacher presents her false court petitions, imagine what her students are learning to emulate. Time and again, Leon had to proof-read her resumes, allowing her on one occasion to become a final two candidate at Utica College. That was 15 years ago during their marriage and she still has not escaped a school district which she privately despises.

An argument on the subject typically had Leon defending the school board against her false depictions of them as well. Formerly a school board attorney for another local school district, Leon was well familiar with the complexities of operating a school system with multi-million dollar budgets. He also did his best to defend her from errors in her specialty as a Social Studies teacher, i.e. the Nile River flows south (because that’s the way it looked on a map). Other criticisms included her preoccupation with e-bay shopping in class. Now is this a person fit to teach our children? Many friends and former clients of Leon in the school district have indicated not.

But even her error-prone conduct in school cannot match the evil she has displayed in child rearing. She has lied in court time and again while alienating Leon’s daughters so severely that he has not gotten a call from them in years. All efforts on his part have been met with undue scrutiny and more false petitions to a point where Leon’s case is now actually before the Supreme Court of the United States.

In upcoming posts we will bring you more gross misconduct of this gold-digging facade of a mother and teacher. If you have information about Kelly Hawse-Koziol which you would like to share for a comprehensive report to MaryEllen Elia, the Commissioner of Education, feel free to contact us at Parenting Rights Institute: (315) 380-3420. These are our tax dollars and precious children at risk. Such rampant misconduct cannot be protected through tenure or First Amendment retaliation, at least not in this country.

Are Your Children For Sale? Parents to Protest at Joseph Flihan Restaurant Supply in Utica, New York

The Joseph Flihan Co. located at 426 Broad St, Utica, NY.

Are your children for sale? Isn’t that “the law” as we truly know it in America’s divorce and family courts? As a mom or dad you go in believing that legitimate lawyers and judges are looking out for your children’s so-called “best interests.” At least that’s what they tell you before examining all your mandatory financial disclosures. Then they plot just how long they can keep two parents fighting over their children for profit. We like to think not all are doing it, but how can you ever know when this gold mine is so easy to access?

It’s a barbaric process reminiscent of a Roman Coliseum, and there is no accountability for the malpractice or misconduct. The foxes are watching the chicken coup, like the ethics lawyers in the witch hunt against Leon who were fired for falsifying their time sheets. These are the standard-bearers of lawyer ethics who oversee billing practices that swallow up entire college funds and life savings. Yet unlike others who steal from government, no public charges, ethical or criminal, were ever lodged.

Hard to believe? Look it up in Albany Times Union, July 2013 (Chief Counsel Peter Torncello, Steven Zayas, etc.). Leon’s custody judge was removed from the bench for admitting to sexual misconduct on his handicapped, five year old niece (Bryan Hedges). Two New York Supreme Court judges, Gerald Garson and Thomas Spargo were sent to federal prison for seeking bribes to fix divorce and custody cases. One did it while facing misconduct charges and the other got early release due to colleague references.

Shamelessly, when the lawyer you hire gets done abusing you, he or she is likely to blame the client for the court’s dysfunction, the emotions they needlessly inflame and the costly outcome to your families. And don’t forget the former lawyer on the bench who knows “the game” (according to New York Family Judge Daniel King, per court transcript of January 15, 2014). The power they are abusing today exceeds that of the NSA, IRS and CIA. They exploit your children to get away with this, and an unsuspecting public goes along.

Well like so many model parents sucked in by this government propaganda, Dr. Leon Koziol was unfortunate to end up with an ex-spouse named Kelly Hawse-Koziol. She engaged herself in an evil scheme to replace the birth father with a millionaire, childless substitute named Joseph Flihan of New Hartford, New York. When Leon outright rejected her offer in exchange for an end to so-called “child support,” (as any loving father would), she plotted to destroy his career, and worse, his relationships with his daughters.

All of Hawse-Koziol’s offense petitions since 2006 were dismissed, only one went to trial but required no defense. Her latest one, a protection (gag) order on this website, was dismissed last month on the eve of trial after a mandamus order was signed in New York Supreme Court which challenged it. Hawse-Koziol actually claimed in court documents that she transmitted notice of child relocation to Flihan’s home under e-mail “” (“l” character missing) unlike all monthly notices before and after. That’s like testifying that she successfully mailed a letter from a trash can outside the post office. But Family Judge Daniel King accepted her lies. After that, under pressure, he disqualified himself from all litigation, but by then the damage was done. His free speech retaliations were complete.

Of course, a Social Studies teacher at Frankfort-Schuyler Central School had no ability to achieve her evil agenda. But when Leon began seeking recourse and reforms through proper channels, the beneficiaries of this lucrative enterprise joined the gang assault which resulted. Sure we could give you the “rambling” details of a ten year saga, but that would only incur more orchestrated sanctions and outright fabrications, i.e. judge findings of a PhD and Masters degree never obtained and nowhere in any court record to elevate Leon’s support obligations. Hey we’re serious. It actually occurred and has yet to be corrected.

Consequently a parental rights leader in New York City is seeking to lead a protest in Utica to the Joseph Flihan Restaurant Supply Company on Broad Street. Its purpose is to send a message that pots and pans can be sold but not our children. This corrupt family court system must be dismantled. Too many unsuspecting victims, especially our innocent children, learn too late how this system actually operates. If you are from the Utica-Rome area, you already know Leon’s conscientious stand on your behalf, his sacrifices and the continuing witch hunt against him. So you need to join up. Call (315) 380-3420 to register.

Kendra’s Chronicles IV: Nile River Flows South In Kangaroo Forum Called Family Court. 

Daddy’s little girls before a corrupted family court and scorned ex-spouse abused state power to censor free speech and reform.
Administrator’s Note: this is a re-post under a new heading after a premature publication was triggered in error to many of our followers. In our next series entitled “Kangaroo Chronicles” we will expose the misconduct of a court appointed lawyer who abused public funds to suppress Leon’s free speech, reform efforts and whistle-blowing activity.

By Dr. Leon R. Koziol

Ever wonder why crimes and civil debts bear reverse punishments in our nation’s divorce and family courts? Supreme Court Justice Abe Fortas once described these forums as “Kangaroo Courts.” Poor Abe, he would roll over in his grave today if he knew what was happening to our families and children here.

But it’s true, support debtors, nearly 100% of them fathers, are being tossed in a cage every day by self righteous family judges while crimes committed by their accusers are going unpunished. Welcome to Kendra’s Chronicles IV, where we bring you a personal side to the corruption which is occurring in these courts across our country. 

Parents are advised by unscrupulous lawyers to fabricate or embellish upon sworn facts for tactical purposes. Family court is the bottom of the food chain in the legal profession where apprentices exploit us to learn their trade and marginal lawyers create controversy to last an entire career. They could care less about our children when there’s money to be made off inflammatory accusations. We expect judges to hold perjurers accountable but so many of them engaged in the same behavior prior to coming on the bench. 

This abusive process is lucrative for everyone but our families. A product of an archaic custody framework, such crimes are preferred over shared parenting laws to keep us fighting over our offspring. Who can blame some when the courts shove moms and dads into an arena reminiscent of a Roman Coliseum with a winner-take-all mentality?

At most, however, a perjuring mother will face a change in custody, and because this may harm the child more than anyone else, such crimes are highly ignored. To be sure, no judge or prosecutor wants to be known as the one who incarcerated a mom even though she caused an innocent dad to be denied access to his children or wrongfully convicted of contempt or abuse. 

For fathers, it’s quite another matter. Judges are programmed to believe that a man is stronger, physically and emotionally, to sustain the pain and suffering caused by the loss of a child’s affection or human liberty while incarcerated for a money debt. When an aggrieved dad reacts to the prejudice, he is ordered into anger management. Put another way, our courts are forcing dads under penalty of losing their children to accept their inferior status in violation of rights protected by our Constitution. 

Hence it is the male parent who must bear the brunt of injustices needed to keep this archaic, lucrative and unequal custody scheme in place. It also explains why discrimination is still tolerated, why fathers remain 85% of support obligors and why nearly 100% of jailed debtors are men, including those who learn too late that the subject children were not theirs. Indeed the phrase “dead beat dad” has yet to be condemned for what it is, a sexist slur.

If a dad rightfully demands fair treatment and accountability, it may beget discreet or even overt retaliation of the kind I sustained when shedding light on the corruption which occurs here. I lost ten months access to my little girls until false petitions were finally dismissed for lack of evidence in 2010. I never even had to put in a defense. But as far as the court was concerned, it was over, no damage done. Dad got his girls back.

Seriously? That’s it? I lost four major holidays, two birthdays and my eldest daughter’s First Holy Communion because of the crimes committed by a scorned ex- spouse, not to mention the precious interactions between a loving dad and two innocent girls. But fathers no longer matter in these courts especially after money became their priority. 

Perjury had been rampant in the often deranged testimony of a mother named Kelly Hawse-Koziol. The judge could conclude that much on the contradictions and ill-preparation alone. These were extremely damaging accusations employed purely as custody tactics, yet not even a scolding or slap on the wrist came of it.

The logical consequence of this kind of break-down in the administration of justice is more of the same. It encouraged this woman to repeat her crimes again and again if for example my girls reported a fun outing with a girlfriend or some rumor which could get her more “child support” in retaliation. It was also a product of entitlement mentality prompted by liberals across the country. 

Kelly Hawse-Koziol remains a tenured high school teacher at Frankfort-Schuyler School District in upstate New York. On numerous occasions while still married, I was called upon to proof-read her resumes in a desperate attempt to leave that district notwithstanding my routine defense of the community and school board. Our efforts got her interviews (and arguments) but no success.

Ten years later, this Masters degree teacher was filing court petitions so impaired with grammar defects that a judge was forced to insert five “sic” notations in a single paragraph to make it a part of his decision. Never mind what this teacher might be doing to the students or taxpayers of her school district, it was my job as a co-parent to make sure that no harm was done to my girls’ home studies

On one occasion, Ms. Hawse-Koziol asserted the startling fact that the Nile River flowed south, evidently because it looked that way on a map. For many of you this may seem inconsequential but when it came up during one of our many father-child trivia exchanges, I could have gotten myself in contempt of a court order especially the way I was being scrutinized as a free speaking American.

My girls are one grade apart in a nearby school district and very smart. You know I’ve got to tell you that, I’m a proud father. They loved to absorb knowledge from whatever source and would never let me stop with the many true-false or multiple choice exercises we practiced during road trips. In none of the family court proceedings over the past six years did such quality activity receive any mention. 

It was one of many learning advantages which was ripped out from under them by a family judge more intent on suppressing the exercise of free speech than dignifying the role of a genuine father.  He damaged these girls in more ways than one. But the inequities of family court generally and the misconduct of this judge in particular had other impacts.

During one of our trivia exchanges, I was subject, as most parents are in family court, to a restriction upon parent-child discourse involving litigation. It’s hard to know how to draw the line where a parent’s authority ends and the state takes over. It was harder still even as a veteran lawyer-parent when my judge, Dan King, found me to possess college degrees I never earned for purposes of imputing child support income. 

Well the conflict found its way into our trivia games and limited weekend fathering activity. To make a long story short, I could not correct answers which my girls attributed to their mother. When they defended her on the degrees she possessed, I was hard pressed not to explain how a judge had misrepresented the facts on this subject. My preferred approach was simply to be a father even if it meant violating orders that made cackling hens more sensible .
