Brothers, ages 9 and 5, came into DFS care in September 2020 because of concerns of active drug use by their mother resulting in neglect and excessive corporal punishment. The mother was under the influence during the CPS investigation and the family reported behaviors indicative of drug use. The children reported strangers coming in and out of the home. The apartment was very filthy when CPS showed up to the home and the family was being evicted. The boys had bruises from their mother hitting them as punishment. They were placed together with one of the boy’s paternal aunt. These young boys are in need of an attorney to represent their legal wishes and rights as to permanency, placement, visitation and to ensure appropriate services are in place. Next Hearing(s): Review Hearing on 02/23/2022 at 2:00 p.m. in Courtroom 10.
