Ariel Winter - Modern Family's Ariel Winter To Remain With Sister, For Now

Teen actress Ariel Winter of the hit sitcom Modern Family will remain under the temporary guardianship of her sister, though a trial has been scheduled to decide her future home, according to the Los Angeles Times. L.A. County Superior Court Judge Michael Levanas said a county Department of Children Family Services report found that allegations concerning Winter's mother were substantiated.

Chrisoula Workman was stripped of custody of her daughter on October 3, 2012, though she denies all allegations of physical and mental abuse. "I would love to have my daughter home," she said outside of court Tuesday. "I love her with all my heart." For past couple of weeks, Winter, 14, has been in the care of her adult sister Shanelle Gray, who was also removed from her mother's care in the 1990's amid accusations of abuse. "Minor Ariel Workman has been a victim of on-going physical abuse (slapping, hitting, pushing) and emotional abuse (vile name-calling, personal insults about minor and minor's weight, attempts to sexualize minor, deprivation of food etc.) for an extended period of time by the minor's mother, Chrisoula Workman," Shanelle's attorneys said in a petition for guardianship. Though Ariel - who stars as Alex Dunphy on Modern Family - appears to want to stay with her sister, a judge will ultimately decide where she ends up. 

The all-important trial has been scheduled for December 12, 2012, though it would be unsurprising should this case drag on for months.
