Daughter Wins Stalking Order Against Parents Who Monitored Her Every Move
CINCINNATI, Ohio (CBS Cleveland) — A 21-year-old college student has won a stalking order against her parents.
The Cincinnati Enquirer reports University of Cincinnati senior Aubrey Ireland filed the order against her parents after they had driven 600 miles from Leawood, Kan., unannounced and accused her of taking drugs, sleeping around and suffering from mental woes.
“It’s been really embarrassing and upsetting to have my parents come to my university when I’m a grown adult and just basically slander my name and follow me around,” Ireland said during an October court hearing, according to the Enquirer.
Her parents, David and Julie Ireland, reportedly admitted to installing monitoring software on their daughter’s computer and cellphone.
Aubrey Ireland said she felt like a “dog with a collar on.”
The judge ruled that the parents have to stay at least 500 feet away from their daughter and cannot have contact with her until at least Sept. 23, 2013, the Enquirer reports.
Aubrey Ireland is expected to graduate in the spring.
