State v. Julie G

In State v. Julie G., 201 W. Va. 764, 500 S.E.2d 877 (1997), the Court noted that the circuit court believed that it was required to disregard facts that supported the initial concerns of the Protective Services worker because such facts were not discovered until after the filing of the petition. The Court indicated that this belief was erroneous and that the allegations in the petition should have been evaluated in light of the evidence of the mother's performance after the filing of the petition, but during the pre-adjudication period.
