TULSA, OKLAHOMA Dusten Brown, the Cherokee father who had to relinquish custody of his biological four-year old daughter, Veronica, on September 23, will hold a press conference this morning in Tulsa.
The announcement of this morning’s press conference came from the Cherokee Nation. The press conference will take place at the law offices of Brown’s Tulsa attorney, Clark Brewster.
The short announcement indicated that the “next legal steps in the four-year-long custody battle involving Brown’s daughter, Veronica” will be discussed.
Joining Brown at the press conference will be Chrissi Nimmo, an assistant attorney general for the Cherokee Nation, who has been at the forefront of the tribe’s legal battle to help Brown retain custody of Veronica.
Brown has not spoken publicly since losing the long legal battle on September 23 when the Oklahoma Supreme Court lifted the stay that allowed Veronica to stay in his custody.
While the tribe’s announcement, released Wednesday evening, does not indicate what legal options remain, the details of any such options are expected to be explained today.
The Native News Network will update after today’s press conference.
