Bangkok's Juvenile and Family Court ruled on Tuesday that US citizen Gordon Lake was Carmen's legal guardian, his lawyer, Rachapol Sirikulchit, told reporters. "The court has granted legal custody of Carmen Lake to Gordon Lake, my client, and my client is her only guardian," the attorney said. Lake's partner, Spaniard Manuel Santos, was elated at the verdict. "We won," he told journalists, adding, "We are really happy… This nightmare is going to end soon."
