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

A 4-month-old baby boy was born with marijuana in his system in August 2021 then was taken to Sunrise Hospital for a bone fracture on December 15, 2021 that appeared to be several weeks old. Upon examination, his left ankle was swollen and he had an abrasion above his left eye.  He was diagnosed with a left lower fracture of the tibial shaft and a possible scapula spine fracture. The parents said he fell off the bed but did not believe this caused the injury. The parents have a history of violence between them and have prior CPS history, including a prior investigation for the death of a minor.  He was taken into DFS care and is now with a foster family. The mother has also been arrested for child abuse and assaulting a police officer. At this time this child is in need of an attorney to represent her wishes and legal rights as to permanency, placement, and visitation and to ensure appropriate services are in place. Next Hearing(s): Plea Hearing on 01/26/2022 at 9:00 am in Courtroom 9.
