Hey there,

Normally the courts would decide that. Though, it's highly unlikely that the courts would take her away from her blood relatives. I.E her dad. Provided the dad can provide for her financially, emotionally, etc. But the substance abuse issues may impact the outcome of Jessica's living situation. My mom was a caretaker for my uncle who has a disability, and something that we learned through this is that people with disabilities have the same rights, if not more than "normal" people. So, what your aunt is doing to Jessica is not right, and in some form people might think it's abuse. Though, your aunt might not think that this is slavery/abuse. I would call it to someone's attention. Maybe talk to your aunt about what you witness going on with the way she treats Jessica. If that doesn't work, bring it to the attention of someone else who you think would make a difference.
