That's creating some uncertainty and charges in cases that would not have been considered child abuse in the past, according to Janet Ginzberg, senior staff attorney at Community Legal Services. Her group provides free legal services, in civil matters, to low-income Philadelphians.

"I know of some cases where people have been charged with child abuse under the new standards, but they haven't worked their way through the courts yet," Ginzberg says.
As details of those cases become public, she predicts years of legal battles ahead.

"We're very happy with this decision," said Janet Ginzberg, an attorney with Community Legal Services. She and other lawyers filed the case on behalf of Peake and others.

"Lifetime bans are unconstitutional and irrational. We think there are many, many people with criminal convictions who are able to be caring and qualified caregivers," Ginzberg said. "Lifetime bans deprive people of the ability to get jobs in the burgeoning field of health care."
She said the ruling may have legal implications for people now precluded from working in child care or with other vulnerable groups. The suit was filed against the state and its departments of Aging, Human Services, and Health.
"Everybody, including the court, expected the legislature to go back and fix the law," Ginzberg said, but that didn't happen. The recent ruling, she said, will require the legislature to act.
Until then, she said, facilities must make hiring decisions, keeping in mind state and federal laws that require employers to consider the passage of time since a conviction and whether the crime is related to job responsibilities.
"Employers still have an interest in hiring people who are not risks to their vulnerable populations," she said.
