CAUGHT: California Social Worker Throws Away Child Sex Abuse Reports

Share

The crisis in California’s child welfare system is only getting worse. A social worker in California has been caught disposing of hundreds of child abuse reports, including potentially dozens that specifically reported the sexual abuse of children.

The Sacramento Bee reports: 

Children faced “incredible pain and suffering” when a Madera County social worker intentionally discarded hundreds of child abuse reports last year, according to government emails uncovered in a Fresno Bee investigation.

Department emails examined by The Bee indicate at least some of the 357 reports may have been neglected for up to two months. The emails, obtained through a public records request, reveal a behind-the-scenes crisis in the fall of 2019 with Madera County Social Services workers scrambling to investigate hundreds of abandoned abuse referrals.

While sources said there is no known evidence that any child died as a result, emails show workers feared children suffered more abuse while reports were stuffed in waste bins and gathered dust…

Dozens of the dumped cases were emergency reports — cases involving allegations of physical or sexual abuse, the emails show.

At least 75 of the 357 reports involved possible sexual or other physical abuse, requiring social workers to respond within 24 hours. Another 248 reports involved allegations of neglect and required a 10-day response, according to the emails.

Some of the cases may have been ignored for up to two months.

Sacramento Bee passage ends

My recent report for The Epoch Times about Contra Costa County in California drew nationwide attention to allegations of prostitution in the Child Protective Services and foster care system. Meanwhile, a whistleblower complaint has been submitted to the House Oversight Committee in Washington, D.C. alleging that a family court repeatedly destroyed or manipulated evidence in child custody and child support cases in California.
