Case Number: 2020-008675

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

Group of four siblings ages, 7 year old boy, 6 year old boy, 5 year old boy and 1 year old girl came into DFS care on August 10, 2020 due to concerns of inadequate supervision. A warrant was obtained in this matter. Housekeeping at Suncoast hotel came into a hotel room and found the 7 year old and 5 year old minors alone in the hotel room. Parents had taken the other children to a birthday party at Circus Circus, intending to be gone only a short time. The parents allegedly went to urgent care as mother felt ill and there had been a diagnosis of COVID-19 within the family. Parents saw there was a long line and returned to the hotel. Parents claim they left the kids in the room unsupervised because they were still sleeping. The Department suspects the children were left longer than originally contended by the parents, and there are concerns that the parents use the older minor as a caretaker for the kids. The family has been involved with the Department multiple times. Next hearing is an Adjudicatory Trial on 10/29/2020 at 9:30 am in Courtroom 11.
