The verdict is in for Ariel Winter. The judge on her guardianship case has determined that she'll continue to stay in the temporary custody of her sister, Shanelle Gray, until a permanent guardian is determined at a later date.

Winter's mother, Chrisoula Workman, was denied guardianship of her daughter after child protective services presented "substantiated" evidence of emotional abuse to Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Michael Levanas, the Associated Press reports. Finding evidence of the physical abuse attested by Winter, 14, was "inconclusive," but Gray's attorney said it could be proven in another report.

Also denied custody was Winter's father, Glenn Workman, who entered the case late in the game to try to gain guardianship of his daughter. A new trial date of Dec. 12 has been set to determine Winter's permanent guardianship.

Levanas reportedly said that he'd like to keep the case in court to help the Workman family work towards reconciliation. »
