Child advocate recommends changes for Vermont

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) — A child advocacy leader has made several recommendations for senators working on child abuse issues to review, including a child endangerment law, child-abuse treatment programming and changing the family court timeline.

The recommendations came from executive director of Vermont Children's Alliance Jennifer Poehlmann, who spoke to the senate review panel on child protection Wednesday.

The panel formed in the wake of a Rutland County toddler's death in February.

The senators heard about protocols from Poehlmann and others on the front line of child abuse cases including child advocacy groups and police investigators.

The panel members are also considering using subpoena power to obtain child abuse documents but will not make a decision about filing a draft resolution for subpoena power until next week.
