Judge: Sweetin Not Allowed

to Be Alone with Baby

12/17/2008 4:07 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1217_jody_sweetin_ex-1Jodie Sweetin is not allowed to see her 8-month-old daughter without supervision.

Moments ago, an Orange County, Ca. judge made the explosive ruling after Sweetin's estranged husband Cody Herpin accused the "Full House" star of being an unfit mother -- citing an alleged incident where Sweetin drove intoxicated with their baby in the car.

The couple faced off in open court today for an emergency custody hearing at Cody's request.

Jodie, an admitted meth addict and alcoholic who lives with her parents, will not be allowed to be with the child unless one of her folks is present.

A doctor also took the stand and claimed that Jodie had recently fallen off the wagon. However, the doc confirmed Jodie has been in touch with her sponsor and is attending AA meetings. The doctor said she does not believe the baby is at risk at the moment.

A judge ordered both Cody and Jodie to submit to drug tests before the next hearing.

I see alot of comments on here about her husband about how he looks like a liar and he looks like he cant take care of a baby. Is it because he has tattoos and and piercings?? I'd be willing to bet he is a better parent than she is. Never judge a book by its cover. You people are so damn judgmental.

Ok people it is very simple, I'm sure they both have great attorneys and the court they went to has seen everything in a divorce a million times. What I am getting at is, if anyone is lying, the court will see through that. Obviously since the judge granted what has been granted there obviously has to be proof. So stop talking bad about either party and stick to the facts. She has to have monitored time with her daughter the judge is a professional and obviously ruled this for a reason.

63. All you on here making nasty comments, do you know these people? Better yet, to those that are parents, are you telling me you don't occasionally have a drink or two. Grow up! She didn't loose anything. She is already living at her parents house, so not much of a stretch for one of them to be there when she has the baby. And to haha.... once an addict, and that makes a person bad? People can be an addict and go into recovery and get better, but just like someone on a diet that slips and has a cookie or candy bar one time, the addict may slip too. I know I did a few times, but have now been clean and sober for over 12 years! So don't be so know all and nasty when you obviously know nothing!


Hi Jodie! You're washed up.
