    It’s a classic case of "she said, she said." Detectives with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department are doubtful there will be any charges filed against Ariel Winter’s mother. The 14-year-old Modern Family star alleged her mother was physically abusive, but the authorities haven’t found evidence to back up the claim. Winter’s mother, Chrisoula Workman, has made her own allegations—against her daughter’s then-18-year-old boyfriend. Workman says he unlawfully had sex with Winter, who is too young to legally consent. Police haven’t been able to substantiate that claim either. Winter’s older sister, Shanelle Gray, has temporary guardianship of the young actress.
