State takes custody of teen after mom accused of medical abuse

On July 2, an Illinois judge determined that a 16-year-old boy from Kansas City was to remain in protective custody and away from his mother for the next 90 days. According to the report, the decision was made after a doctor gave testimony indicating that it was believed that the boy was suffering from medical child abuse.

Like several other states, Illinois is re-examining its policy on child custody and may be changing the way custody is routinely awarded.

Some parents, lawmakers and others argue that a child does better if both parents share custody equally.
