In a shocking decision, a Massachusetts judge ruled Tuesday that Justina Pelletier – the Connecticut teen who has been in the custody of the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families for over a year – will remain in the custody of the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families.

As TheBlaze reported, Suffolk County juvenile court Judge Joseph Johnston granted “permanent” custody DCF. This decision was in response to a motion filed by Justina’s parents, Lou and Linda Pelletier, and her court-appointed lawyer for a “conditional custody” plan. Until this point, DCF only had temporary custody of Justina. That temporary custody had been in effect since February 2013.

On Wednesday’s Glenn Beck Program, Justina’s father, Lou Pelletier, sister, Jennifer Pelletier, and Mat Staver of Liberty Counsel sat down with TheBlaze’s Buck Sexton to discuss the latest custody decision and how they plan to fight back.

“It’s her life, her body. She should be able to be doing what she wishes… Her education has been completely broken… It just goes on and on and on,” Jennifer said. “I think it’s criminal the way these people have been treating my sister. I want her back home.”
