In re Ethan G., B193907
Order permitting father, who sexually abused child, to return to the family home and designating the non-offending second parent as the monitor, is reversed as the very concept of monitored visitation is fundamentally incompatible with around-the-clock in-home contact that necessarily includes periods when the designated monitor will be unavailable to perform his or her protective function.
