The agency that placed Marcus Fiesel with the people who later killed him is officially appealing Ohio's decision to revoke the company's license.
Lifeway for Youth has announced that it filed its appeal just before the state's deadline to do so.
A hearing will now be scheduled to hear the appeal and Lifeway can continue to operate until the scheduled hearing.
Lifeway placed the three year old in the care of Liz and David Carroll who are serving prison sentences for his death.
The state found that the agency violated almost 50 state rules, 27 just in the Fiesel case alone.
