On  6 Nov 19 Sgt. McKee filed for and received a warrant for the arrest of Elaine Diddle, age 64, 2112 Rogers Road, Rossville, GA, on a charge of interference with custody.
On/or about 18 Oct 19 Diddle obtained emergency custody of a 15 year of age child.  The juvenile had been in the custody of a Washington County resident.  Diddle had filed and obtained emergency custody and then Diddle and the juvenile immediately moved to Georgia. On 29 Oct 19 the custody order was reversed and granted back to the previous custodian, however the juvenile was in Georgia.  Sgt. McKee learned that Diddle gaining custody was not correct, which is why the custodian was able to have the custody orders reversed so quickly.  After obtaining back custody, the female traveled to Georgia to obtain custody of the juvenile.  When the subject arrived at Diddle’s residence, Diddle refused to turn over the juvenile.  The Walker County Sheriff’s Office was contacted; however they refused to enforce an out of state court order.  The subject was further ordered to leave Diddle’s property by Georgia law enforcement.  The court advised that Diddle was agreeing to turn the juvenile over to the custodian; therefore she traveled back to Georgia only to have Diddle again refuse her custody.  On 31 Oct 19 Washington County Common Pleas, Juvenile Division Judge Williams provided the custodian with a court order, that again stated custody was to be returned.  The order stated that Diddle shall return the juvenile to the custodian in Ohio immediately and that failure to do so could result in a charge of interference with custody.  The order was served on Diddle’s attorney.  Attempts to contact Diddle in Georgia by Washington County Deputies have resulted in negative contact.  This charge is a 5th-degree felony.
