CARLTON – A judge's order has five children involved in a Carlton County child care case remaining in temporary custody of Carlton County Public Health and Human Services, as of March 8.
Judge Rebekka Stumme's order includes findings that state it is in the best interest of the children to remain in out of home placement until the legal custodian is able to provide a safe environment.
Continued custody of the children by the legal custodian is contrary to the best interests of the children, according to the court documents.
The latest order pertains to five of the 10 children removed from their legal homes in January after allegations of abuse were made against two mothers. The Pine Journal is not identifying the women to protect the identities of the children.
The next hearing in the case is scheduled for 11 a.m. April 5.
