A 14-year-old and an 11-year-old came into DFS care on August 10, 2021 due to concerns of inadequate supervision, physical risk, and environmental neglect. LVMPD responded to a hotel room at Mandalay Bay where the 11-year-old and their younger siblings were found alone and their mother’s whereabouts were unknown. DFS reported to the home of the mother where they found the 14-year-old and his father. His father reported that he was staying with the 14-year-old at the home after being informed the 14-year-old was left home alone. The house presented with old food on all counters of the kitchen, on the tables in the home, and in the bedrooms. Their mother was subsequently arrested for an outstanding warrant for battery as well as child abuse and neglect. Their father was subsequently arrested for driving on a suspended license. The father lives in a residence that is not adequate for the children. These two children 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): Plea Hearing on 8/31/21 at 9:45am in Courtroom 11.
