And this is just one reason the system is corrupt!


Matthew Lappin is just one reason the system is corrupt. How many more are out there? In light of what has happened in the last few weeks first with Nubia and her brother and with the two children and their mother one wonders when it will all stop! Added to that was the case worker who was arrested in Orlando for drugs and now this. The system is beyond broken. It is corrupt – greedy and abusive. It is past time to shut it down!

Matthew Lappin

A Department of Children and Families employee was arrested by the Leon County Sheriff’s Office on Wednesday on two charges of lewd and lascivious molestation against a child, LCSO spokesman Sgt. James McQuaig said Sunday.

Matthew Lappin, 29, was arrested on charges of fondling/molesting a child younger than 12 years of age, McQuaig said.
If convicted, Lappin could face life in prison.
DCF Communications Director Joe Follick said Lappin worked as an abuse registry counselor. His job was to field calls on the department’s abuse hotline, take information from the callers and dispatch that information to the proper authorities. Follick said Lappin did not come in physical contact with children on his job.

McQuaig said LCSO received the case on Feb. 25 through a report from DCF, informing LCSO of allegations that a child was molested twice, once on April 1 and once on Oct. 1.

“The system in place worked,” McQuaig said. “When DCF became aware of a criminal allegation, they did what they were supposed to do and contacted the appropriate law-enforcement authority.”

Follick said Sunday the department had become aware of the allegations against Lappin on Feb. 25, contacted LCSO and placed Lappin on paid administrative leave. On the day of Lappin’s arrest, Follick said DCF sent Lappin a letter stating the department’s intentions of firing him. He has 10 days from the receipt of the letter to contest the firing.

“On the rare occasion when a department employee allegedly commits a crime, we react quickly to remove that person from any interaction with families during an investigation,” Follick said.

Lappin currently is being held in Leon County Jail. Bail has been set at $25,000.
