In Re Nhyashanti A.

New York Supreme Court Appellate Division, First Department


January 10, 2013

IN RE NHYASHANTI A., ALSO KNOWN AS ANTON C., A CHILD UNDER THE AGE OF EIGHTEEN YEARS, ETC., AND EVELYN B., RESPONDENT-APPELLANT, ADMINISTRATION FOR CHILDREN'S SERVICES, PETITIONER-RESPONDENT.

Matter of Nhyashanti A. (Evelyn B.)

Published by New York State Law Reporting Bureau pursuant to Judiciary Law § 431.

This opinion is uncorrected and subject to revision before publication in the Official Reports.

Decided on January 10, 2013 Friedman, J.P., Sweeny, Acosta, Abdus-Salaam, Manzanet-Daniels JJ.

Order of fact-finding, Family Court, Bronx County (Ilana Gruebel, J.), entered on or about September 20, 2011, which, following a fact-finding hearing, determined that respondent mother had derivatively neglected the subject child, unanimously affirmed, without costs.

Petitioner agency made a prima facie showing of derivative neglect as to the subject child based on the prior findings of neglect against respondent with respect to her older children, including a finding of neglect just 10 days before the subject child's birth (see Matter of Cruz, 121 AD2d 901, 902-903 [1st Dept 1986]).

The derivative finding of neglect was supported by a preponderance of the evidence (see Family Ct Act § 1046 [b] [i]). The prior findings of neglect were sufficiently close in time to the derivative proceeding to support the conclusion that respondent's parental judgment remained impaired (see Cruz, 121 AD2d at 902-903). Further, respondent testified that she had not completed anger management services or a mental health evaluation, and that she had not been compliant with her mental health treatment for a year before the filing of the petition in the derivative proceeding.

THIS CONSTITUTES THE DECISION AND ORDER OF THE SUPREME COURT, APPELLATE DIVISION, FIRST DEPARTMENT.

ENTERED: JANUARY 10, 2013
