I have removed the names of the social workers in this account that was sent to me. I believe the account. It was unsigned but very consistent with other stories. As always, I am happy to hear from CPS about this case that I am sure they will recognize. I am a little perplexed about the interaction when the girl was 17. How can the state keep her when the Becka Law won't even let the parents keep her...she can run away when ever she wants...
CPS needs to be shut down for the pain the they have caused families. The Tacoma office should be the first to go. They have put me and my wife through a lot of emotional pain and financial hardship.
My 17 year old stepdaughter made false allegation while in rehab for drug abuse. She was very mad at me for sending her to rehab, for the second time, and told me she was going to do this. When she returned from rehab X. X., the investigator for CPS arrived and took our child from us. She had brought the police with her and they threatened to arrest my wife if she did not allow our daughter to go with X. They violated our 4th amendment rights and they did all of this without a warrant.We went to the CPS office for a interview with X. and she denied us the interview because we had brought our attorney with us and she said we we not allowed to have a attorney present. My attorney told her that he was going to be present. X. became very angry because of this and ask my attorney in a loud voice how could he defend a child molester. She said this in the lobby of CPS with 10-15 people hearing her accuse me this. My attorney became very angry and we left the building.
While in foster care my daughter wrote a blog on her myspace page admitting that she lied and made false allegation of abuse and she recanted her story several times. Her drug addition took hold and she began to use drug heavily, ran away several times, and fought with the workers. The case worker for CPS, Y. Y., along with Jon M., the CPS AG, went forward to falsify documents, block our witnesses from testifying, and did not even let their own therapist testify on the stand because she expressed concerns that our daughter was lying. They allowed our daughter to testify even though she admitted she was high that day. CPS told her exactly what to say with promises of money, housing, collage and told her that if she did not testify that they would put her in jail for being a run away. Of course they won the dependency and during one of the review hearings Judge Beverly Grant told my wife that she was a terrible mother and she should of left me whether the allegations were true or not. Judge Grant also said that our daughter was very pretty and she could see why I would desire her. Judge Grant called me to the court room to answer to her and she ordered me to go to a sexual therapist. My attorney told her she can not make me do this as she has no right over me in juvenile court.
Well, my daughter turned 18 and moved back home that same day. The damage has been done and our daughter is not doing good. We just hope and pray that somehow, someway that CPS and all the people involved will be accountable for the hurt and pain that they have caused this family.
