Case Summary

S-16-0981, In re Interest of Carmelo G.

Douglas County Separate Juvenile Court, Judge Vernon Daniels

Attorneys: Thomas C. Riley & Zoe R. Wade (Public Defender's Office) (Appellant - mother) --- Paulette Merrell (Douglas County Attorney)

Civil: Placement

Proceedings below: The trial court continued the protective placement of the minor child excluding Appellant's home.

Issues: 1) Appellant was denied due process of law due to the unreasonable delay of more than eight months between the issuance of an ex parte immediate custody order and the temporary order continuing the child's detention outside the parental home pending adjudication, and 2) Appellant was denied due process of law when the juvenile court found continued detention of the child pending adjudication was necessary based on Appellant's noncompliance with an invalid and coercive safety plan.
