Presumption concerning child sexual abuse. Provides that a child is a child in need of services (CHINS) if the child: (1) lives in the same household as another child who is the victim of certain sex offenses; and (2) needs care, treatment, or rehabilitation that the child is not receiving and that is unlikely to be provided or accepted without the coercive intervention of the court. Establishes a rebuttable presumption that a child is a CHINS if: (1) another child in the same household has been the victim of a sex offense; (2) the offense was committed by an adult living in the household; and (3) the offense resulted in the conviction of the adult or a CHINS adjudication concerning the child victim. Provides that a child presumed to be a CHINS may not be taken into custody or emergency custody unless a court finds cause following a hearing.
