The biological father at the center of a court case over the adoption of a three-year-old by Matt Capobianco, a former longtime employee of Glasspro in Charleston, S.C., and his wife Melanie, turned himself over to the Sequoyah County Sheriff’s Office and was released Thursday after Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin authorized the man’s extradition to South Carolina to face a felony charge over alleged custodial interference, according to local reports.
A judge released Dusten Brown on the original bond posted August 12, according to the report.
The custody battle has gone all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. Though the South Carolina Supreme Court recently finalized the Capobiancos’ adoption of baby Veronica, the case continues to remain tied up in the courts after Brown reportedly has refused to hand over custody or allow visitation. He is fighting the decision in the Oklahoma court system.
This is just the latest development in the ongoing multi-state court battle.
