NEW JERSEY DIVISION OF CHILD PROTECTION AND PERMANENCY VS. J.C. AND C.M. IN THE MATTER OF T.M. A-2436-13T3

NEW JERSEY DIVISION OF CHILD PROTECTION AND PERMANENCY VS. J.C. AND C.M. IN THE MATTER OF T.M. 
A-2436-13T3 
The Family Part judge entered a finding that a mother neglected her three-year old son after she drank alcohol and 
remained in her bedroom the following morning with the bedroom door closed, while the child was in the next room unsupervised, wearing a dirty diaper, with the apartment door ajar. 

Because there was no harm to the child and the mother's conduct did not rise to the level of gross negligence or reckless disregard for the child's safety, we reversed.
