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.)
