Is ADAM HAYES a custodial father? It sure sounds like it. Even though this guy is a drugged out disaster living in utter filth and squalor.
Wonder who called in for the welfare check? We're not told.
And notice how child protection services is bending over backwards to help this dim watt. Totally indulged with a "parenting plan" and all the other useless quackery.
Meanwhile, what happened to this boy's mom? Utter silence as usual.
This is how my ex used to live when he had custody of my daughter, and we eventually had to go over the heads of local CPS to the state level to get her out. All of these local social service agencies are totally indulgent of abusive and neglectful fathers these days.
Father admits neglect of 6-year-old son
August, 23 2012 2:02 pm
A 27-year-old Gardnerville man pleaded guilty Wednesday to neglect and drug charges after deputies found his 6-year-old son sleeping in a closet, and a variety of prescription drugs within the child's reach.
Adam Hayes pleaded guilty to contributory neglect and possession of a drug that can't be introduced into commerce.
Deputies were called to his apartment in March on a welfare check, and found his son sleeping in the closet. The residence was filthy with dirty carpets, overflowing trash, and table and counters covered with old food.
Deputies said the apartment smelled of rotting food, cigarettes, feces and marijuana. Officers found a bag with 33 grams of marijuana along with five different prescription drugs in a pill box on the coffee table.
The medications were in plain view and within easy access of a small child, deputies said in their report.
One of the occupants of the apartment vomited on the coffee table and living room floor during an interview with deputies.
Hayes was arrested Aug. 16 after a warrant turned up during a routine tenant background check as he attempted to rent a new apartment.
Hayes told East Fork Judge Tom Perkins on Wednesday some of the drugs were in a box of his stepfather's belongings.
He said there was no danger to the child.
“I was watching my son. He knows right from wrong. We were in the bedroom and the pills were locked up,” Hayes said.
He received two 30-day sentences to be served concurrently, which were suspended for two years.
Hayes was ordered to comply with a parenting plan established by the state Child Protective Services.
“Maybe somebody didn't teach you how to keep your house clean, but you have to learn how to do it for your son,” Perkins said. “And keep away from the drugs.”
