An investigation wasn’t launched until the 10-year-old gave birth. You’d think someone like a friend, family or teacher would have noticed a pregnant 6th grader and called someone. At least the hospital workers were doing their job.
The 10-year-old girl (now staying with relatives) has had her newly born daughter have been taken away by Hamilton County Department of Job and Family Services (JFS) and is now in foster care.
She is not likely to get her baby back as prosecutors don’t feel a 6th grader is capable of raising a child… and obviously she won’t be getting the help of her parents.
It looks like mommy (now grandma) may be going away too. The girls’ mother was warned not to let any adult men around until they could determine who the father was. But when caseworkers made a surprise visit, they found Michael Chaffer.
Hopefully both children are in better hands now.
