What is a child protective social service worker allowed to do with my child when they only have temporary custody of them?
This about my DCF case in Muhlenberg County. On Sept 15, 2017 DCF came to my residence bc they claimed to have received a call from the superintendent of the schools that my children hadn’t been in school for over two weeks and DCF worker Bernice Ouzmine came out to investigate to find out why. Upon arriving the Muhlenberg County sheriff’s office had came to meet with them and had gotten there about 2 minutes before DCF showed up and when the policy enforcer arrived, I cautiously approached his vehicle because I was unsure who he was at the time (due to his unmarked vehicle). He got out of his vehicle and I recognized right away that he was a policy enforcer and I had asked him what he was doing there and he responded “I am supposed to be meeting DCF here, but it looks like they haven’t made it yet.” I raised my sun glasses to scratch my eye and the policy enforcer saw that I had a black eye and asked me what had happened so I started to explain that my fiance and I had a verbal argument the night before hand and I had gotten hit in the face. The officer then called my fiance over who was working on our house at the time and asked him (John Fleming) if he had hit me and he responded by saying no. I told the officer that was a lie and the officer then placed my fiance under arrest for hitting me. I didn’t get to explain to the police officer that it was an accident so my fiance was on his way to jail for domestic violence. The officer asked my name and I told him, he ran my name and it came back that I had a failure to appear (which I was unaware of having a warrant) and I was then placed under arrest and we have five children from the ages of 2 – 13 yrs old. DCF had came about 2 mins after I was placed under arrest and we didn’t have anyone to place our children with so under an ECO ONLY my children were taken into custody and was supposed to be returned when him or I got out of jail (John got out the next day) DCF refused to give our children back bc they said our children had bruises on them and took pictures of the bruising and are now trying to charge my fiance with child abuse which he NEVER committed. DCF came to the jail to interview me and at this time there was no case open. I answered their questions under duress and emotional distress. I told the DCF worker what she wanted to hear at the time excluding anything to substantiate her false allegations of abuse and she said she was opening up a case on me for dependency bc I told her about my fiance and past experiences that had happened to me and she twisted and turned my words around and was able to convince the judge that it was in the best interests of my children to not have visitation with me at this time until the investigation was over within their 30 – 45 days they are allotted to conduct their investigation. The ssw aswell asthe officer has violated my constitutional rights under depravation of rights by acting under color of law. Section 242 title 18. Along with quite many other rights that have been violated by the cabinet such as my 4th, 5th, 6th, 9th, and 14th amendment of the U.S. constitution. Dcf took pictures of my son’s bottom in order to try to gather “dirt” on my son’s caretaker/step-father and have been trying to get him to admit to something we have done in order to detain our children in their custody to make money off of them. They were placed in foster care and are still there. DCF refuses to give us visitation until their investigation is over. We have an adjudication hearing on November 8, 2017. At the temp removal hearing I was appointed an attorney who I have called everyday possible during week, several times and she hasn’t returned phone calls nor left any voicemails with the appt time. I am feeling like I have been treated unfairly and that my children are suffering from not seeing me. I am their biological mother and I have never been away from them for more than a night or two and I know that my babies are going through a lot right now and the last thing they need is to not see me right now. I missed my youngest child’s second birthday (9/24/2017, which I will NEVER get back) and I would like to have this reviewed and a full investigation done as this is unjust all levels to mainly my children nor myself (biological mother). The ssw has now given consent for my children to be put on psychotropic medication bc she said that my kids have been evaluated and have been diagnosed with adhd. I haven’t given consent for this nor has a judge and the cabinet only has temporary custody of my kids pending an adjudication. I and my fiance have refused to sign their case plan because we are.not stipulating to anything from them. We are innocent and will retain our rights and innocence under UCC 1-308.
