Modern Family's Ariel Winter to Remain With Sister Shanelle Gray
Ariel Winter will continue to stay with her sister for the time being, a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge ruled Tuesday, Nov. 20.
Two weeks after Shanelle Gray, 34, was granted temporary custody of the 14-year-old actress, Judge Michael Levanas has decided to extend her guardianship after a Tuesday morning hearing. (Winter was removed from her mother, Chrisoula Workman's, home following allegations of emotional and physical abuse.)
During the hearing, Gray's attorney Michael Kretzner cited a Department of Child and Family Services report which stated that while findings of physical abuse against Chrisoula were "inconclusive," Gray's accusations of emotional abuse were "substantiated."
Levanas denied a guardianship request by Winter's father Glenn Workman, who seems to have done a 180 with regards to Winter being under her sister's care. (Initially, Glenn had stated in a declaration that he would not object to his daughter remaining with her older sister.)
"I have found that Shanelle is capable of the temporary guardianship," Levanas announced in court, explaining that permanent custody will be decided at a later trial date.
