Lexington Children Removed from Abused Women in Shelters

The Courier Journal printed an AP story on Monday revealing that the state has removed 50 children in the last year from women who fled to Lexington, KY shelters to escape domestic violence.

The Courier Journal printed an AP story on Monday revealing that the state has removed 50 children in the last year from women who fled to Lexington, KY shelters to escape domestic violence. That morning I asked Nina Mosley, a Louisville attorney who often represents women in shelters (and whose husband is the Director of Wayside Christian Mission in Louisville) whether she has seen such removals in Jefferson County and was pleased to hear that had not been her experience. She only sees children removed when a serious issue such as drug abuse causes the children to be neglected. Today’s CJ editorial page confirmed the issue appears limited to Lexington. Surely a thorough investigation will follow.
