HCSO is not seeking charges against Anthony Lux but is investigating claims he made about why he took his daughter

The Humboldt County Sheriff's office will not seek charges against Anthony Lux,  Undersheriff William Honsal told me. Undersheriff Honsal said that the case is not being referred to the DA's office and that Lux is fully cooperating with law enforcement.

He said when Lux was interviewed, he told HCSO that Child Welfare Services provided him with inaccurate information which led to him taking his daughter away from her grandmother.

HCSO is investigating the case and the alleged misinformation claim.

HCSO Press Release:

On Tuesday, November 29, 2016 at about 10:50 p.m. Anthony Lux met with Humboldt County Sheriff’s Deputies to return his daughter, Allison Shirey.  Lux spoke with Investigators and stated he had received advice that there were no court orders in regards to Allison’s guardianship and he had legal rights to remove Allison from the home.  Lux agreed to return Allison after speaking with Investigators after realizing his actions were unlawful and plans on pursuing custody of his daughter.
Deputies returned Allison to her guardian and was removed from the missing persons system. Allison was in good health and good spirits.

  1. Much bigger story than others have told. Hope the investigation into the misinformation claim is complete and accurate. I hope he can afford a lawyer. "He said" "She said", especially in a custody situation isn't enough.
    Does the department that oversees the custody have a history of things like this?
