Woman loses custody of 5 children—again

January 17, 2011

An Indianapolis woman who had just regained custody of her children had them removed from her home again Saturday by Child Protective Services when police found them home alone. Police say Alicia Clark had her five children, ages 2-8, taken from her on Dec. 28 after a domestic disturbance. They were later returned to her. Officers were called back to her east-side apartment Saturday after receiving a tip from a neighbor that the children had been left home alone. Clark, 27, said she had to leave the children alone so she could go to her job at a local retail store. She faces felony child neglect charges.
