Alienating mom is jailed

Here is a NY story:
In a decision that will surely generate controversy and fuel gender wars and the ongoing debate over parental alienation, Nassau County Supreme Court Judge, Robert Ross, has sentenced a woman to six weekends in jail for alienating her children from their father.

The court went into great detail describing the mother's behavior toward her ex-husband, the defendant in Lauren R. V Ted R. The mother's behavior reached a crescendo, according to Judge Ross, when she made a false report of sexual abuse against the father to Child Protective Services.
There is more info here.

She is even worse than my ex-wife, but I am not sure that this is the correct remedy. If she filed a false CPS report, that ought to be a crime in itself, with regular criminal penalties.
