South Carolina Army drill sergeant Terry Achane thought he would be reunited with his 2-year-old daughter in Provo Wednesday, but it didn’t turn out that way. The Utah Supreme Court put a temporary hold on a lower court judge’s order giving Achane custody of his daughter.
Achane’s daughter Teleah was placed for adoption at birth without his consent or knowledge. After months of litigation, Achane’s attorney Mark Wiser says his client was en route to Provo for a hearing in 4th District Court where he expected to finally gain custody of his daughter.
