CPS INVESTIGATIONS

Child Sex Offense -- CPS Investigations: A teacher conducted her own "investigation" at school and believed my client's three children were being sexually abused by their father. CPS interviewed the children at school and ordered the father out of the home. The mother retained me to protect the children and see that a proper and impartial investigation occurred.

We obtained a child interview expert who was better qualified than the prosecutor's. The prosecutor refused to video record child interviews. The court approved our expert instead of the prosecutor's to interview the children on video. When the State reviewed the videos, it agreed there was no evidence of sexual abuse. No criminal charge was filed and the family was reunited.

Homicide/Child Abuse: A new father retained me when his infant son was hospitalized in a coma. The State believed the child had been shaken to cause brain injury. The court restricted the parents' access to their child in the hospital. We obtained visitation to permit the young parents to see and hold their baby, who soon died. A later autopsy revealed no evidence of abuse. No charge was filed.

Juvenile Sex Offenses: Parents retained me to advise them regarding accusations that their son molested their younger daughter. I helped them establish an appropriate safety plan to keep the daughter safe. When CPS responded to investigate, it approved of the safety plan we had in place and did not require a dependency action.
