At least if you're an FLDS kid (named Alexander or not). The judge in Texas has issued a ruling giving CPS everything it wanted — basically temporary custody of every FLDS kid in the county and DNA samples from both FLDS children and adults. See Sect's Children to Stay in State Custody for Now at the NY Times. And: Polygamous-sect children ordered to stay in Texas custody at AP. Here's the paragraph from the AP story summarizing the judge's ruling:
State District Judge Barbara Walther heard 21 hours of testimony over two days before ruling that the children would be kept in custody while the state continues to investigate allegations of abuse stemming from the teachings of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.
A San Angelo, Texas media site that has been liveblogging the proceedings gave this summary of the judge's ruling:
The judge thanks all members of the bar for their work and cooperation. She announces her decision that the children should not return to the ranch. She says this is the beginning. Hearings will begin June 5, but they will not be en mass. The court orders maternity and paternity testing for each child. On Monday, a mobile lab at the fairgrounds will test the DNA of all the children and mothers there. Parents are entitled to an attorney, whether or not they can afford it, she notes. For now, it’s over.
Last links, from the SL Trib, which has provided excellent coverage the last few days: Was massive raid based on bogus call from Colorado woman? with additional details on this bizarre twist to the case; and Judge rules state will retain custody of FLDS children.
So that's it for awhile on this one, folks. Round two starts in June.
