ALLEGATIONS: The Department of Children, Youth, and Families filed an ex-parte petition to remove the Client's six (6) month old child from her care alleging: (1) Neglect, and (2) Abandonment.
FACTS: Client was charged with two (2) counts of Felony Assault with a Dangerous Weapon and one (1) count of Conspiracy to Commit Felony Assault with a Dangerous Weapon by the Providence and Cranston, RI Police Departments. These charges were largely based on taped phone conversations of the Client/Mother and unfounded allegations by the Police Department that the Client/Mother was allegedly a member and leader of a local gang.
RESULT: When pressed to trial, the Department of Children, Youth, and Families determined that it had insufficient evidence to proceed to trial on the Neglect and/or Abandonment Petitions and voluntarily dismissed the charges. Client/Mother was reunified with her now one (1) year old son and DCYF involvement was terminated.
