Sibling set of five came into protective custody over concerns of domestic violence and possible physical abuse after family members reported that the father of the youngest child punched the oldest child in the chest. CPS tried to discuss with the mother and the older kids what happened and whether that father was living in the home. The mother denied any ongoing contact and reported having a TPO. However, the 8 year old let it slip that the baby’s father was living in the home and that the mother is pregnant with his child. Because the last investigation involved serious physical abuse, CPS elected to remove the children as the danger could not be fully assessed. The oldest four are placed with their father’s girlfriend while the baby is with a relative of her father. The mother reports that maternal grandmother is willing to take placement. The Next Hearing is a Case Plan Review on 2/19/20 at 11am and then there is a Review Hearing on 5/6/20 at 1:30 pm, both in Courtroom 23.
