Case Number: 2021-000454

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

8 year old girl and 2 year old boy came into DFS care on December 8, 2020 and December 29, 2020 due to environmental neglect. DFS attempted informal investigations, and ultimately secured a warrant to enter the home to determine if there were hazards to the 28 month old son and 8 year old daughter. Entry was made on December 8, 2020, after the children were secreted to another location. The house was filthy, with garbage, piles of dirty clothes and dirty dishes throughout the home. There was a stench within the home and drug paraphernalia was also located inside the home. There was garbage outside the home and the entire area posed a hazard to the children. Natural mother denied living at the residence and stated she lived with the paternal grandfather. Paternal grandfather came to the home with the children and advised that natural mother did not live with him. A present danger plan was established with the paternal grandfather and the children were placed with him. DFS obtained a warrant December 29 authorizing the children to be placed in protective custody. Next hearing is a Confirmation of Counsel Hearing on 4/20/2021 at 10:30 am in Courtroom 11.
