Child Protective Services - Sometimes they get it right, sometimes they get it wrong. CPS has their own set of problems. If you are in the unfortunate situation of being falsely accused of physically or sexually abusing your child or if child abuse has occurred and was not properly recognized then this is not only incredibly frustrating, it can be dangerous. CPS has been known to be very difficult to work with and once caught up in their system it's hard to make your way out or to get them to re-evaluate a situation. An improper CPS child abuse investigation can spin out of control rather quickly. You may well benefit from having a private investigator to re-evaluate the situation and offer a 2nd opinion regarding any child abuse case which is investigated by CPS.

REAL LIFE EXAMPLE

One case that illustrates the point is a case in which CPS removed an infant from a parents’ home here in Austin under faulty reasons. An infant sustained a spiral fracture of the leg which in most cases is a pretty good indicator of child abuse. Basically, one would have to grab the limb, pull and twist, and is not something that generally happens in a fall. A relative placed the infant in a motorized swing (the kind that rocks back and forth) and placed it on top of a kitchen table as she turned her back to wash dishes in the kitchen. She claimed that the infant somehow fell off the table while in the swing. Because of the spiral fracture and the child being an infant, essentially being unable to move causing the fall, CPS accused her of child abuse and removed the child. However, when CPS came to investigate they never turned the swing on. If they had they would have noticed that one leg of the swing was just a little bit shorter than the other legs. When the swing would swing back and forth it caused the swing to “walk” very slightly on a hard surface. Overtime, the motion of the swing gradually moved the swing backwards with one leg of the swing leading the other 3 legs. I then approximated the weight of the child by putting potatoes in the swing and then put a timer next to the swing and videotaped the result. Depending on what speed the swing was set on and how the potatoes were position it would take from 5 to 20 mins for the swing to walk right off the table. However, with one leg leading the other 3 legs the swing took a violent tumble, first flipping into one chair and then bouncing into another chair before it hit the tile floor. It was overwhelming to actually see this happen and I consider the violence of this fall akin to a car accident. My clients at the time actually cried when they witnessed this. Additionally, it was shown that the swing’s seat flipped in an upwards motion and that the infant’s leg could have easy been caught between the seat and the body of the swing which would have accounted for this pulling and twisting action that caused the spiral fracture, not from intentional child abuse. After a very heated discussion with the County Attorney explaining I had videotape evidence and questioned why CPS did not at least turn the swing on to see for themselves, the County Attorney dropped the case and reunited the parents with the infant. Maybe it was not the best idea to place the child in a swing on top of the table but certainly this was not a case of child abuse where an individual purposely set out to harm or physically injure a child. Case Solved!!!
