Crystal Sheffield lawyers up and makes accusations that Haleigh and Junior were abused by Ron Cummings

March 19, 2009

I thought I read a while ago that this photo from was taken after Haleigh fell on the sidewalk at school? Anyone remember that?  halight-bruisedI’m having a real problem buying Crystal’s story that she didn’t know she could go back and try to get custody of Haleigh.  She says they were abused by Ron. As Nancy Grace brought up last night, if she was afraid that Ron was abusing the children, why did she live 2 hours away from them and why did she wait so long to report it?  Ron has had custody of the children since 2005—this is 2009.

I grew up in an area that had lots of Crystals and Mistys and Rons–Yes, I know there are many abused women in this world that are so beaten down they are afraid of their own shadows–Crystal does not strike me as one of those women.

UPDATE: FYI Nancy Grace verified tonight that on the 6th of November, Haleigh fell at school and got a cut on her nose. This photo was taken after that.

    WHY on earth would Chrystal Sheffield pick this time to go after Ronald Cumming for s0-called child abuse?? She needs to get off of her butt and try to find littl Haleigh!! I think that silly, fame seeking atty. just wants her “fifteen minutes of fame!” Nancy Grace made her look silly. Also, Mark Klass was angry that the focus was not on LOOKING FOR HALEIGH! Just seeing the love Ronald’s mother, Mrs. Neves has for her grandchildren, I KNOW that she would NEVER, EVER allow anyone to abuse them.

    Chrystal has a new baby…she needs to take care of it at this time. She also needs to learn about BIRTH CONTROL. Is welfare the norm for her? If she is still useing cocaine, meth,pot etc….she needs to clean her act up. Get off welfare and GET A JOB. I hope she dumps that self-serving atty. from New York. She’s bad news.

    MBFelicity I agree with you 100%!! I think she sees this as an opportunity to kick Ron while he’s down. She should have done this a long time ago if she really thought he was abusing the children.

    Crystal Sheffield and her attorney make me SO SICK with their B.S. that they are trying to pull, Incase she forgot she has a missing DAUGHTER, she had 5 yrs. to get an attorney and bash Ronald and TRY to play the victim role that she was abused on a regular basis, which I DO NOT BUY for one second, I’m sorry but Ms.Sheffield does not appear to be the type of woman that gets or got “beat on a regular basis” as that fame hungry attorney of her’s claims she was by Ronald Cummings… I think Ms.Sheffield should be ashamed of her self for taking the focus off of her MISSING DAUGHTER by this so called abuse crap that she allowed her attorney to fill her head with and to also try to make Ms.Sheffield appear to be some poor victim that was to dumb and young to know any better, but yet you are trying to talk trash about Ronald for marring Misty cause she is 17 yrs old but it was ok when Ms.Sheffield was with him that she was young but yet he fathered not 1 but2 of her kids, guess Ronald wasn’t such a bad guy after all . If Ms.Sheffield really gave a crap about her kids that 2 judges took away from her then she would NEVER EVER live 2 hours away from them, or at least any decent mother wouldn’t nor would any decent mother leave her kids with some one that abused her on a daily basis as that witch attorney that is using Ms.Sheffield for her own benefit and fame by showing her face on all the popular news channels claims was the story… Are you 2 watching your selves as you do all these interviews, cause you look like morons your fake tales of abuse make no sense at all and it appears Nancy Grace really proved you guys wrong on the pic of Haleighs face that she checked on and found out that Haleigh did fall at school, Also if Crystal was such a great person and so kind hearted as she claimed to be last nite on Nancy Grace then why is she not in ANY of the pics being shown all over tv of Haleigh? Almost in every pic of Haleigh you see her daddy in the pic laughing and smiling with her… Ms. Crystal, actions speak louder than words… You can tell in those pics that as much as you may hate to admit it Haleigh LOVES her daddy dearly and she appears to be a happy child in those pics smiles as big and bright as hers are in ALL the pics being shown on tv can NOT be faked….. That witch attorney that I must say appears to be a man hater that has her butt on her shoulders as well, is filling your head with empty promises and making you think she is some miracle worker cause I can tell you that your case doesn’t look any better today then it did in 2005 when 2 Judges found Ronald to be the better parent… The whole world can see threw you and your false claims…. I can tell you the last thing a Judge wants to do is take a child away from the natural mother and it takes a REAL piece of work for not 1 but 2 judges to tell you that you are not the better parent… How stupid do you look on tv accusing Ronald of all this bad stuff and yet he was found the better parent… WOW !!! Lets hear your dirt Crystal and start with telling the truth as to why you really lost your kids? and last but not least the drug charges that Ronald NEVER GOT CONVICTED of was back when he was with you wasn’t it?? I thought so… I’m sure you have heard the saying to not throw stones when you live in a glass house!!!!!!

    Stacy I think Nancy Grace knocked them both down a couple of pegs. Absolutely ridiculous.

    I havent really followed this case but one night I was watching tv and listening to the Crystal after it was announced that Misty and Ronald were getting married she was mad. I think she is jealous and thats why she is doing all this, hiring a lawyer and setting up a place for donations. I also watched her cry…with no tears! Did anyone ever think and this is just my opinion that maybe she had someone come in an take Haleigh and have her hidden just so she can go after Ronald for JR? And you never hear from her again. Just a thought.

    LVSusie–I think I remember hearing that Crystal is behind in her child support payments to Ron by $4000.00. Right before Haleigh went missing he filed to try and get the money and she was served with papers. I don’t know if that has anything to do with anything, but it’s a strange coincidence.-Crystal has a “fiance” as well. Guess I’m just sayin’ your theory has crossed my mind as well.

    In the earliest interviews with the mother’s attorney

    . . it was the attorney who stated that SINCE Haleigh has been missing it was people in the father’s community who were reporting that they witnessed abuses on the children ie: belt whipping, poked hard with sticks, face punching and hitting, etc, drug use and other issues

    ….. and as a result of these locals tattling about what was going on in and around the trailer park regarding the kids, the mother and others were worried about the safety of the little boy still in the environment.

    Whether true or not . . it is what the attorney said during her first days of giving interviews.

    I do recall the attorney trying to tell Nancy Grace the “sources” of the original “tattling” about the treatment of the kids when on her show too

    …. but Nancy Grace interrupted her (and seemed to be distracted by her someone buzzing in her earpiece) . . . right now, Nancy Grace is under the impression all the information was from the mother which makes he info “suspect” but if you had seen the original interview of the attorney in different media than Nancy Grace … the focus of the information regarding the children’s lives at Ron’s was based on what she called “people in the community who have made formal statements due to having witnessed the abuses”

    Augie–Same as with Crystal–why is this just now coming out? If life with Ron was so terrible why wasn’t he turned in and prosecuted before? Why did 2 judges give him custody? I’m just having a ton of trouble buying Crystal’s story–almost as much trouble as I’m having with Misty’s.

    I think Crystal is pissed cuz she lost the original custody battle, and now she blames Ron/Misty for “losing” Haleigh, so she wants to punish him by taking Junior away, and this is the only way she can think of. Its stupid, its selfish, and it takes all focus off her missing daughter. I think she’s using a tragedy to further her own interests.

    that’s exactly what I think, Ostella

    Maybe things finally just got bad enough for Crystal to get motivated to get her kids back . Her eyes certainly have been opened in the past 5 weeks. Maybe you need to have things go so bad as your child being kidnapped while being inadequately cared for to get off you butt and decide enough is enough and do something to protect your children. Some people just have to hit rock bottom before it seems important enough to change.

    I don’t know, Rebecca. Crystal didn’t want to give DNA to LE because she thought it might show if she had drugs in her system. That tells me she STILL does drugs.

    FINALLY!!!!! the dirt on Crystal Sheffield is starting to fly, LOL…. I watch Nancy Grace every nite ever since the Caylee Anthony story broke, As I was watching it I believe wed. nite what ever nite it was that dumb and dumber ( Crystal and her attorney) were on Nancy Grace attempting to play the victim role yet again, Nancy Grace directed a question toward Crystal’s attorney and asked her if in fact Crystal lied and made a false police report stating her car was stolen, and the attorney looked at Crystal and then back toward the camera and said Crystal would be better at answering that qestion then I would as she knows the story better than I ( I don’t think the attorney had a clue about the story what so ever) and Crystal had the deer in headlights look but said nothing before Nancy Grace said I have here in my hand the police report and it states right here and the police officer that responded is who wrote this on the report, Nancy Grace told Crystal and her Attorney before she read it aloud, Nacy Grace read off of the document that the police officer stated that after being questioned Crystal finally admitted that she lied about her car being stolen… LMFAO then of course before any one said any thing they went to commercial break and when they came back from the commercial that dumb witch attorney had a few minutes to hurry and think of some B.S. to snake out of either of them commenting on the facts that Nancy Grace just blew them away with and said I don’t know what that has to do with Haleigh missing and if any of you watch Nancy Grace then you know how tough she can be on the guests if she feels they are not being honest or have bad intensions, and Nancy Grace says to the attorney hey if you don’t want to comment on that’s fine I don’t blame you, but you and Crystal are on here talking about abuse that your client suffered and says was from the hands of Ronald Cummings and I don’t know what that has to do with Haleigh missing… At any rate I thought some of you out there that feel the way I do about Crystal and her attorney would like to know that if you didn’t hear it already…. I have to say when this story first broke and as the world learned the history of Haleighs parents I DID NOT have the negitive feelings towards Crystal it was not untill this attorney offered to take her case FREE OF CHARGE and then all of a sudden Ronald Cummings is accused of being this monster abuser, well her story was just to her when she was with him, and then when she left they are claiming he abused the kids but she states he NEVER touched the kids when they were together, it just doesn’t make sense at all, OHHHH ALSO Nancy Grace also asked Crystal’s attorney didn’t Crystal also get in trouble for making false allegations to DCF (department of children and Families) and that too is true… I find it funny that the attorney keeps saying people are coming out of the wood work telling them about seeing or knowing of Ronald abusing the kids,, Now really she didn’t expect something of the sort in such a big case as this one? My question is why didn’t all these people call DCF if they knew that abuse was going on, why wait till now that it is plastered all over tv and take the risk of getting dragged in to a court battle and the whole world knowing you were the person that knew of abuse but waited so long to tell any one just to get your 15 minutes of fame when you could have just simpily called DCF and not even have to leave your name if you wish not to and not have to worry about any one coming to you cause you reported them to DCF, I hope every one gets the point I’m trying to make about the so called people Crystals attorney claims is coming out of the wood work…. I think the attorney said she would take the case just so her name would get out there, and I think I read or heard from some where that she is not even an attorney from Florida and correct me if I’m wrong but aren’t the laws diff.state to state…. Just my thoughts AGAIN on this case that is turning into a circus . . . .

    I had no opinion about Crystal either at first. But,when she and her mother started bad mouthing Ron several weeks ago, a red flag went up and I thought, this girl has some sour grapes. I also remember thinking this is so wonderful that these people aren’t joining the “circus” like the Anthony family did. Well, I’m eating those words–

    Attorney’s can work in any state as long as the take and pass the bar in each state.

    THANKS Nina !!!!!!!!
    In that case I would think she did that IF she had not done that in the state of Florida prior to her taking Crystal’s charity case… I’m pretty sure many others out there have checked on that and if there was an issue we would have heard abou it already, don’t you think?

    Hi Rebecca! It does look bad, but I can remember when my youngest son was a little older than her, he was playing tag with his brother and several other neighborhood kids. It was dusk and he was trying to catch his older brother-who as he ran towards the side of the house, turned to the left, missing the brick wall. My youngest son didn’t see the wall and crashed into it. His face didn’t look that bad at first, but as the days went by it turned black and blue and purple and looked like someone had beat the crap out of him. It didn’t fade for weeks. So, I’m thinking a child could look like that a week after the fact.

    Who had motive to take Haleigh Cummings. The mother Crystal Sheffield had all the motive in this world. $12,000 in back child support and a court hearing that could have put her in jail. She found out about this a day before this child went missing. She had her first seizure at this time. Crystal Sheffield or someone around her (relative, fiance, lover) had the motive to take Haleigh Cummings. She wants custody look at what she has done. Her mother keeps telling everyone on the internet the father killed Haleigh Cummings. They are on My Space, Twitter, Facebook, Blogs, Comment forms getting people to call DFS for them. They want custody and they want it bad. They have for some time. Even took the kids and refused to give them back when he had legal custody. Motive, Motive, Motive.
