"There is no truth to these allegations," Jimmy Workman tells Us Weekly. "The allegations made 20 years ago are not true and the ones today are not true."

In the latter instance, Jimmy is referring to the fact that Ariel's sister - Shanelle Gray, with whom Winter currently resides - was also transplanted from her house two decades ago due to similar abuse claims.

Shanelle never returned to live with her parent.

"This is a mother who does everything for her kids," Jimmy says, adding that his mom "misses Ariel and wants her to come home."

A hearing has been scheduled on November 20 as the next step in the matter.
