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

One month old baby girl came into DFS care on March 16, 2021.  Mother and father have a history of domestic violence, primarily verbal arguments but recently escalating to physical violence.  Father was woken by the family cat, took it into the bathroom and put it under running water, then punched the cat in the face knocking out a tooth later found in the bathtub.  The baby started crying, he then picked her up and started shaking her to stop crying, threw her on the bed and pined her down with his thumbs screaming in her face to shut her up.  Mother intervened and father choked and puncher her.  She was able to get away with the baby.  Baby was later taken to Sunrise Hospital for observation.  Father has allegedly killed the family dog as well as injured the family cat.  Mother has failed to protect the child from domestic violence.  Next hearing is a Disposition Hearing on 6/22/2021 at 1:30 pm in Courtroom 11.
