Public Children Law

A judge had been entitled to decline to make a care order in respect of a disabled child, despite finding that she had been sexually abused by her uncle and that her parents had failed to protect her. The judge had been entitled to take into account the fact that the child was adequately protected by her placement in a residential home.
