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.
