Elizabeth Pineda left two of her children with Samuel Rodriguez while she took her 11-year-old daughter to a birthday party.
Unfortunately, Mr. Rodriguez, a handyman, was also dealing drugs. While the children were in his care, he allegedly made a drug deal. He was caught.
Inexplicably, Ms. Pineda was also charged. "A narcotics cop named Vincent Esposito swore that Pineda told him she had lived in that basement apartment where the drugs were found. ... Pineda's lawyer presented bills, even her license that show she and her children live in a complex in Middle Village."
Ultimately, all criminal charges were dropped. But things are not back to normal for Elizabeth Pineda and her children, who are still in foster care. "She also has to appeal to get off the New York State Child Abuse and Neglect Registry."

Dan Tilkin reports (in Parents say daughter legally kidnapped without their side heard) that Michael and Stacey Trumbo's daughter, Anna Trumbo, was placed in the non-parental custody of Anna's boyfriend's family, the Betscharts. It appears that Michael and Stacy are concerned, not just because the Betscharts got temporary custody of their daughter, but also because Anna's boyfriend "has to register as a sex offender for trying to do sexual acts with a 12-year-old girl."

CORPUS CHRISTI - The civil lawsuit in the beating death of a Corpus Christi toddler is one step closer to going to trial.
Plaintiffs in the case are set to choose expert witnesses who they'll call to testify once the trial starts.
You may remember, a jury convicted Juan Garza of capital murder for the death of his girlfriend's 21-month-old son back on New Year's Eve 2010. He's now serving life in prison.
The child's mother, Lorraine Rodriguez, accepted a plea deal on a charge of murder in exchange for a 25 year sentence.
The boy's father, Raul Ruiz, filed a lawsuit in federal court against Child Protective Services claiming his son would still be alive if they did their job.
Ruiz claims he called state officials several times to let them know his son was in danger.
