Sacramento, CA – A married couple held a press conference today in front of the Sacramento County Juvenile Court building in order to make public the unnecessary and continued harassment inflicted upon their family by CPS. The Sacramento family was accused of having caused their daughters infection at a local hospital even though: 1) there was no evidence of any action by the parents which could have caused the infection; 2) three social workers assigned to the case gave favorable reports; 3) there were no reports that their daughter had ever been abused or harmed before or after her hospital stay; 4) A registered nurse, the girls principal and teachers, and every mental health professional involved with the family, except the one utilized by the court, has commended the family for its closeness and caring attitude; 5) the case was only based on the presence of a serious infection during hospitalization.
“This has resulted in months of trial, the expenditure of countless hours by social workers and of, presumably, significant County funds,” said Steve Burlingham, PJI affiliate attorney for the parents. “Perhaps instead of throwing more money at the problem of abuse, the County needs to better manage its cases and the Law should be strengthened to prevent intervention in unwarranted cases.”
“This is a classic example of how the CPS system has gone awry,” said attorney Brad Dacus, President of Pacific Justice Institute. “In view of the clear, insurmountable evidence supporting this family, there is no justification for CPS continued harassment and traumatizing of these parents and their seven-year-old daughter.”
