Lee county justice court judge chuck hopkins took only a few minutes to rule that the check point where logan was stopped was unconstitutiona l.

A couple in lowndes county is accused of child neglect.

The man is still behind bars.

The mother has been released on bond, but the children are no longer in the home..

Our rylie livingston takes a look at how law enforcement handle cases like this..

Most parents can't imagine neglecting their child's basic needs.

But youth court judge lydia quarles says it happens more often then you might think.

"i cannot tell you th situations that these child protective services people see because they take pictures and they bring 'em back to court and you would not... it is very hard for me to believe."

"we get some not a lot than goodness it breaks your heart to see a child miss abuse or missed treated or anything like that i'm a softy when it comes to kids.

We go to every call with check every welfare concern that we get a call for to make sure that everything's okay."

And those calls make a difference.

Child protective services and law enforcement often rely on the community to spot child neglect cases.

"they know more about what' going on in their neighborhood out somewhere then maybe we would know and you've got a lot of young mothers and parents that work and sometimes unfortunately they leave kids at home by themselves unattended which is not safe and we need to know that."

From not going to school to not having food, or even clothes, at home, there are many levels of neglect..

"if you're not seeing tha they're in school that could be educational neglect.

That's probably the least neglectful thing is you don't get your child to school.

If you don't have suitable clothes if you don't have beds for your children, if you don't have food in the house, if it's a filthy environment."

When cps gets called, they go to investigate and develop a plan of action... "the first thing they do is t determine what is the threat to the child and fix that.

Cps can work with families informally and if that doesn't work then they can bring them to court."

Quarles says when you make a call to the cps hotline you can stay anonymous.

She encourages anyone with suspicions of neglect or abuse to call 1- 800-222-8000.

You go into the season thinking one game at a time.

You can't help but look down the schedule but we have to work to get passed the slow starts we been having.

Our problem most games was coming out starting slow then having to fight back.

We just have to figure out coming out in that first quarter and win ball games."

He's really pushed us.

He's only bee playing for 2 years.

Last year was his first year of football.

So i guess you can say he made some rookie mistakes.
