A 1-year-old girl presented to the emergency room with burns all over her butt and genital area on or about March 3, 2022 and, as a result, was taken into DFS care. The doctors believe the child was placed in hot water and attempted to curl up. Neither Mother, nor maternal aunt who has temporary guardianship, had any explanation for the burns. Both the mother and aunt blame each other, therefore it is unclear who had the baby girl at the time of the burns. There is a criminal case pending and there is a case before the guardianship court that is expected to be dismissed now that the child is in DFS care. This young baby girl is in need of an attorney to represent her legal wishes and rights as to permanency, placement, visitation, and to ensure appropriate services are in place. Next hearing(s): Status Check on 5/25/2022 at 9:00 am; Adjudicatory Trial on 5/26/2022 at 9:30 am in Courtroom 9.
