((vanessa murphy)) the i-team obtained this footage - which does not reveal the full hearing.... when we tried to get the video in its entirety - a clark county district court spokeswoman told us the record was sealed on october 11th. this happened on june 5th. ((girl: please no....crying.....i want to be
i don't want to be with hi,. judge: i've made my decision. i've already told you that. girl: i beg of you. judge: you don't need to beg. i've made the decision for your best interest. girl: how do you know my best interest? you don't know me. judge: because i told you, i'm a grownup and you're a child. girl: please, please, please, please, please...))

hughes. we were told she could not comment on the case and were referred to the presiding judge - charles hoskin. he also said he could not comment on the case, he had not seen this video, and children don't typically come to court for these hearings. ((vanessa murphy/reporter: why did you bring your daughter with you? welthy silva/mother: because i was told by the court, in the court's letter that i needed to bring ----- to the court at 1:30.))

((vanessa: for a divorce, custody hearing, should there be a child advocate there? rebecca: i think that a
the child knows.)) ((vanessa murphy)) early on - judge hughes had asked the parents to leave... and later - said the mother would be escorted off the property. ((welthy silva/mother: i didn't want to leave her there alone.)) ((welthy: i had no choice, ya know, whether i wanted to or not.)) ((vanessa murphy)) the child's father and his attorney declined on camera interviews. silva says she's aware of this video...but it's just too painful to watch. ((mother: i canno momma.)) ((rebecca: many people may find that video appalling. i agree. and that, at the same time, very, very important to give kids a voice. just do it in the right manner.)) ((vanessa murphy)) judge hoskin says complaints can be made to judicial discipline, while judge rena hughes remains on the bench. vanessa murphy, 8 news now.// ((denise valdez)) >> both parents tell the
