Eric Moelter has started to speak up a bit about what has happened in the false sexual abuse and child custody abduction case of Cindy Dumas v. Eric Moelter now that all three boys are living with him once again. He believes their mother Cindy Dumas suffers from Borderline Personality Disorder and has been waging a distortion campaign against him for years.
Believing Cindy Dumas Suffers From BPD Is Rational
Having examined this case and being familiar with BPD and distortion campaigns, I believe Moelter has good reason for his perceptions. I do note for objectivity’s sake that I do not have sufficient visibility into the case to be absolutely sure of any diagnosis. There are many other similar mental health disorders that could lead to some of the behaviors Dumas has exhibited. These include Narcissistic Personality Disorder and Antisocial Personality Disorder in particular. The diagnostic criteria for these have some significant overlap particularly in behavior patterns involving lying and defamation used to control and manipulate others.
It is not unusual for these other personality disorders to be co-morbid with BPD, nor for distortion campaigns to be waged by people with these other personality disorders. Complicating the problem of dealing with people who have such problems, psychological evaluations often fail to diagnose their mental health problems as was recently discussed in our article Personality Disordered Abusers in Psychological Evaluations.
It is also highly common for people suffering from these disorders to have been abused as children. It would be interesting to hear more about the childhood of Cindy Dumas to see if the typical child abuse pattern associated with these personality disorders is something she also experienced.
Moelter’s Updated Website
You can read what Moelter has to say on his updated website. Although this is a change from his usual near silence, it is completely understandable how person who has been vilified as a child sexual abuser would want to defend himself from such allegations, particularly if they are entirely false as Dumas’s claims strongly appear to be.
Children May Be Damaged More By False Allegations Than Real Abuse
Often the trauma inflicted upon children who are claimed by a divorcing parent to have been physically or sexually abused may far exceed any psychological damage from the alleged incident in the first place, even if something did happen to warrant a concern about possible abuse.
Particularly in cases of alleged sexual abuse, these children are put through months of questioning, blocked from access to a parent who they probably love and miss unless either the abuse was severe or they are being subjected to parental alienation. They are often put through years of abuse, like what Cindy Dumas did to her boys, in efforts to train them to support the claims of the divorcing parent making the accusations. For a young child, this is far more abusive and damaging than almost any common one time physical or sexual abuse could be. And if there was no such abuse originally, as appears to be the case for Damon Moelter and many other children in similar situations, the falsely accusing parent and the government to varying degrees have participated in severely abusing these children and their families.
Cindy Dumas Has Badly Hurt Many People
Although it could perhaps be argued that nobody will ever know for sure what happened regarding the original alleged incident that started this long nightmare for this family, I submit that it long ago stopped mattering. Damon may not even have objective or accurate memories of events from so many years ago when he was so young. His memory by now has been polluted by his mother and all the other people who have spent time prodding and probing his mind for several years.
It appears incontrovertible that even if Damon did experience some distress or confusion because of something his father did (note that I am not implying it was anything wrong or illegal), the psychological damage caused by Cindy Dumas to her sons far surpass anything that could be reasonably anticipated even from what Dumas (in my view falsely) originally accused Moelter of doing. What she’s done to the children, Eric Moelter, and his extended family has in my view reached criminal levels of harassment and abuse. Yet it is unlikely she will ever be prosecuted for her crimes. It would be wonderful if she were held liable in a civil suit for her defamation, but it is unlikely that even a multi-million dollar judgment against her could ever make up for what she has done to her victims.
