A 15-year-old girl who spent two months tethered to her parents was sent directly from a courtroom in Moncks Corner, S.C., into state custody. A judge said her home was no place for her to be. Tonya Kline's lawyer had argued that being tethered to her mother or father was punishment in itself. The teenager, who was charged with truancy, shoplifting, burglary and grand larceny, also apologized to the judge. The judge was unmoved.

Tobi and Tori sit in their highchairs, side by side in matching mint-green shirts decorated with kittens. The video camera recording the 18-month-olds' lunch does not move. Their mother, Emily LaBarge, appears with two plates of food. She seems annoyed. "We have corn and green beans again, 4 ounces apiece," she announces to no one in particular. "We have pork chops again today, and they have 2 ounces of pork chops." Tobi starts crying, blocks her face with her hands and turns away.

A 73-year-old convicted child molester will remain, at least for now, in a state mental hospital. A state appeals court upheld a Sonoma County jury's verdict that Charles Anthony Krah was a sexually violent predator, and should remain in state custody. In 1987, a jury convicted Krah of molesting two girls, one 5 and the other 12. He was sentenced to 25 years in prison and became eligible for parole in 2000.

A mother whose newborn was reportedly kidnapped by a knife-wielding woman posing as an immigration agent was briefly reunited with her baby, then saw him and her three other children taken from her and put into state custody. Rob Johnson, a spokesman for the Tennessee Department of Children's Services, said the children were taken from their mother, Maria Gurrolla, "purely for safety reasons," though he would not detail why the state deemed they were in danger. "Our focus is on the children, and under the current situation right now, we think the safest thing to do is take the children into state custody," he said.

A judge in Pensacola, Fla., ruled that a 14-year-old AIDS carrier should remain in state custody rather than be turned over to his mother, an attorney for the mother, Millie Sullivan, said. Circuit Judge William Frye earlier this month placed the youth, who has admitted to numerous homosexual acts, in a hospital psychiatric unit for 11 days. But nationwide publicity forced the state Department of Health and Rehabilitative Services to rescind its support for the confinement.
