Dwyane Wade Custody Battle Plays Out In Chicago Courtroom
CHICAGO (CBS4/AP) — Just days after winning the NBA title for the second time, Dwyane Wade took his next fight to a Chicago courtroom in a battle with his ex-wife over custody of their two children.
Siovaughn Funches-Wade invoked the Fifth Amendment against self-incrimination during a hearing on visitation rights.
Funches-Wade is accused of child abduction for allegedly failing to return their sons, ages 10 and five, to Wade in a timely manner over the Father’s Day weekend.
Wade is seeking a suspension of her visitation rights, or visitation only with supervision.
Cook County Associate Judge Helaine Berger ruled Tuesday that Funches-Wade can’t visit her children in the Chicago area until she makes a final ruling on July 9. Funches-Wade can travel toFlorida to see the boys.
Funches-Wade’s attorney, Michael Haber, said testifying Tuesday might have hurt her defense against the criminal charges.
