    Former DCFS workers seek dismissal of charges in death of 8-year-old Palmdale boy

    LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Unprecedented charges against Los Angeles County social workers were filed following the death of 8-year-old Gabriel Fernandez of Palmdale.

    The question today is whether the felony counts against four social workers will be dismissed, reduced or stand.
    [.....]
    The four had been held to answer charges of felony abuse in a preliminary hearing, but in the appeal their attorneys argued that there was insufficient evidence of criminal wrongdoing.
    [.....]
    Prosecutors say that the four minimized evidence of abuse and violated multiple policies, reporting that safety programs at Gabriel's home were working at the time abuse was escalating.
    [.....]
    If the case proceeds to trial and the defendants are convicted, they could face over 10 years in prison.

    The appellate court could also dismiss the charges or reduce them to misdemeanors.
