Sheriff Sherman Block, chairman of a county task force on child abuse, called Friday for greater training of judges in child dependency court, saying the court's recent failure to remove a 2-year-old boy from a home where he was beaten to death was "mind boggling." Block was referring to the case of Lance Helms, a toddler who died April 6 in a North Hollywood home. County social workers had warned repeatedly that he could be in danger there, yet a judge chose to leave the child in the home.
