Ind. Decisions - Court of Appeals issues 1 opinion(s) today (and 5 NFP memorandum decision(s))

For publication opinions today (1):

In In the Matter of: Ce.B. and Co.B. (Minor Children) and C.K. (Custodian) v. The Indiana Department of Child Services, a 7-page opinion, Chief Judge Vaidik writes:

A custodian of two siblings appeals, claiming that the juvenile court erred in determining that the siblings were children in need of services (CHINS) without first holding a factfinding hearing. We find, however, that the juvenile court did hold a factfinding hearing in this case. At that hearing, the custodian, represented by counsel, chose to stipulate that the facts contained in the CHINS petitions and reports of preliminary inquiry were true. The juvenile court then reviewed those materials and, based on the stipulated facts contained in them, made a legal determination that the children were CHINS. Furthermore, the custodian does not make any argument that his stipulation should be withdrawn for cause. We therefore affirm the juvenile court.
