LAS VEGAS, Nev. (MyNews4.com & KRNV) -- Two days after News 4 aired a report about a child custody case with child abuse charges involved, the Clark County Judge wants the case sealed from the public.
Antonio Morales, of Reno, currently has physical custody of his two children. Their mother, Roxane Arteaga, is currently on bail awaiting trial on a felony child abuse charge in Las Vegas. She is charged with abusing and neglecting her daughter.
However, Roxane filed for custody, and the judge was set to hear the case on Wednesday, even though the judge's staff told us the judge's policy is to wait until the criminal case is resolved.
After the News 4 story aired on Monday, Clark County Family Court Judge Jennifer Elliot is now seeking to seal the case, so that no one will be allowed to know what goes on in the courtroom.
This new development has come just two days after the investigation raised questions about the judge's actions in this case.
