A North Pole legislator is accusing the state of "legal kidnapping" for the rise in the number of children in state protective custody.

Rep. Tammie Wilson, R-North Pole, this week called for a grand jury investigation into the Office of Children's Services, alleging the agency has ignored state and federal law in order to put more children into state custody and keep them there.

Baby Braelon has a high fever and was throwing up and his mother had to BEG the workers at her group home to take the baby to the local hospital first and then he was transferred around midnight last night to Children's Hospital because of the severity.

The negligence on the part of a group that is supposed to protect children is outrageous! Even though the baby had a dr's appt the day after he was discharged from the hospital it wasn't til TEN DAYS LATER that they took the baby to be checked!!

The justices examine the language in Arizona's sexual abuse laws, which does not require sexual intent in order to be charged.

"The statue says intentionally or knowingly having sexual contact. Well sexual contact is just the direct or indirect touching of the genital of something else of the child. That is where the changing of the diaper could come into play," said legal analyst Monica Lindstrom.

Prosecutors are asking the Arizona Supreme Court to reinstate a law that allows some people accused of the sexual abuse of minors to be held without bail.

Deputy Maricopa County Attorney David Cole said the constitutional provision limiting access to bail was adopted by voters in 2002. He said the state Court of Appeals, in overturning the law enacted by lawmakers to implement that amendment, failed to give "due consideration to the overwhelming will of the people."

Some families in Erie County paid a terrible price for understaffing in Child Protective Services, but a new report shows that conditions have improved significantly.

Excessive caseloads helped to create conditions that contributed to the deaths of children, including Eain Brooks, Abdifatah Mohamud and Jacob T. Noe. In each case, overworked CPS workers were already familiar with the families.

How difficult but important is the job of Nebraska case workers helping children in crisis? A new report from Julie Rogers, the state inspector general for child welfare, provides a sobering example.

Nebraska child welfare workers, the report says, need to be better trained to study the bodies of babies for signs of abuse. The workers need to understand how to look not only for major bruises but also for more subtle visible signs that can indicate an infant is suffering from physical trauma.

As they have for the last three decades, First Nations advocates are again sharply criticizing the Canadian government for continuing to discriminate against First Nations children, and failing to fix its "broken" child welfare system.

Blackstock was in disbelief that despite two compliance orders since January, the government has done little to address a Human Rights Tribunal's findings that it is discriminating against First Nations children on reserve by giving them significantly less funding versus children in other areas of Canada-and that race and/or ethnic origin was a factor in that discrimination. Advocates have been lobbying the government on the issue since 1998 and numerous independent reports over the decades have called on the government to fix its system. "Why are they taking so long?" Blackstock asked.

Laying out its plans to keep Children and Family Services staffing levels strong and defending the agency's law enforcement relationship, county officials authorized a formal defense this week to a critical grand jury report.

Authorized by the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday, the formal response comes as CFS deals with a series of offensives. Two weeks before the grand jury report in early July found the agency marred by significant under-staffing and a disconnect with law enforcement, the state Department of Justice announced it was reviewing the agency's "compliance with California laws intended to ensure the safety and well-being of children, including children in the dependency system."
