Former soldier seeks custody of child

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - A central Missouri couple is concerned that a former soldier will be granted visitation or custody of the child he conceived with their 14-year-old daughter.

 

   Pulaski County Associate Circuit Judge John Clayton is scheduled to hold a hearing Tuesday in the guardianship and adoption case filed by a Pulaski County couple regarding their grandson.

 

   The Columbia Daily Tribune reports the girl's parents are seeking to terminate the parental rights of the father.

 

   A military court in 2012 found the father not guilty of aggravated sexual assault, statutory rape and committing an indecent act with the couple's daughter. She became pregnant in 2010.

 

   The father is seeking to gain custody or visitation and to change the boy's name. He says he's wants his parental rights recognized.
