At the fact finding hearing, the judge had found that the father, and not the mother, had inflicted the child’s injuries. But the mother later told a social worker, whether accurately or otherwise, that she had inflicted some of them.
Held: At the next hearing, the judge should subject the mother’s apparent confession to rigorous scrutiny and if he concluded that it was true, he should alter his findings.
