In Children's Attorneys Project (Abuse/Neglect Cases)

Two siblings, ages 7 and 5 years, came into DFS care in January 2020 due to allegations of negligent treatment, inadequate supervision and physical injury neglect/physical risk.  The mother and an unknown adult male had a gun in their possession and fired the weapon outside of their apartment.  The mother was arrested and there was no one to care for the children.  Paternal grandparents to the oldest child have temporary notarized guardianship of the children and allow the children to visit with their mother.  The paternal grandparents stated that there have been no indications that would raise a red flag.  The natural father of the oldest child is incarcerated and the natural father of the youngest child is unknown.  Both children have been placed with the paternal grandparents to the oldest child. Next hearing is a Plea Hearing on 3/18/20 at 10:00 am in Courtroom 22.
