Redman Denied Rights To See Other Children



JACKSON, Mich. (WLNS) - Amanda Redman, 30, who is charged with manslaughter for the death of her infant daughter last month is fighting in court to keep parental rights to three of her other children.

Redman's attorney waived her right to the probable cause hearing Tuesday. Now the matter will go straight to trial and a jury will ultimately decide whether she retains any rights to three of her surviving children.


Judge Diane Rappelye decided that Redman should not be given the right to see her otehr children given the serious nature of the charges against her. She was allegedly intoxicated while caring for her new born baby and then fell asleep on her, causing the child to suffocate and die.

But the attorney that represents the children said he thought supervised parenting time would be fine, in fact healthy for them. Christopher Hurlburt says, after all, the goal of family court is always to reunify the family and there's no guarantee that her parenting rights will be terminated.



The jury trial in family court starts next month. The trial for her criminal charges hasn't started yet.
