Even though this happened in Racine Wi, it is rampant through out the entire country. I found out some things that were very interesting in the case in Jackson County Georiga that involves Alice Samantha Thomason. It seems that even if I were to tell them that I could take the three girls they would not give them to me. The reason, I have totally pissed them off. Yes, I found this out. How did I piss them off. It is this blog and the facts that have been posted here. The corruption ,greed and abuse is being brought out into the open and they don’t like it.
They would falsify records, stall, lie or anything else to keep me from getting them. This article is just one of the corruption tools they use to keep families from being reunifed or to keep from taking children in situations that they really need to be removed from that is true abuse and harm. Not poverty.
This is the main reason they stall and try to keep the parent from getting their hands on the records, they don’t want the true to the surface. It is time to stop this corruption, lies, abuse and greed by CPS.
RACINE – He was in charge of investigating cases for child protective services in Racine County, but Todd O’Brien has been accused of falsifying documents that could have put hundreds of children at risk.
O’Brien pleaded not guilty in a Racine County courtroom to six charges of falsifying documents.
His former employer, the Racine County Human Services Department, is in the middle of reviewing his entire case load.
The trust O’Brien allegedly fabricated may take years to repair.
“This is a combination of a white collar matter and a typical criminal investigation,” said District Attorney Michael Nieskes.
O’Brien, who is 37 and from Franklin, was in charge of investigating child abuse and neglect cases.
But instead of investigating, he allegedly marked the cases as “unsubstantiated.”
He has since been fired, and Racine County Human Services is reviewing about 250 of O’Brien’s cases.
Neither O’Brien nor the people he was with in court would talk to us.
Officials with Human Services would not comment about the internal investigation or what specifically they’re doing to make sure this doesn’t happen again, but they say they’re taking this situation very seriously.
So are prosecutors.
“Our fear is that someone will continue to be victimized or was victimized further,” said Nieskes.
O’Brien is scheduled to return to court next month.
A Child Protective Services caseworker in Floresville is free on bail after being arrested in the theft of hundreds of dollars worth of Walmart gift cards meant for children.
Stefanie Moore, 32, was charged with theft, officials said. Floresville police arrested her July 2 after an investigation.
Moore is accused of stealing $650 worth of cards that the Karnes County Child Welfare Board donated to CPS, agency spokeswoman Mary Walker said. Thirteen cards, each with a value of $50, were taken, she said.
Employees didn’t immediately know the gift cards were stolen because they were in a desk of a supervisor who was on leave.
Walker said every employee has background checks and that nothing was suspicious about Moore, who has worked for the agency since January 2009.
“It’s certainly not reflective of the other folks who work here. We’re here to protect children, not to steal from them,” Walker said.
According to Walker, Moore confessed to stealing the cards, which were intended to help children who need clothing, prescriptions and other items.
Moore “separated from the department” the day she confessed, Walker said.
“This is something the agency does not tolerate,” she said. “It’s a huge violation of their trust, and we hope that the actions of this one person are not reflective on what goes on this agency.”
