PEARLAND, Texas — Parents coping with the sexual assault of their 6-year-old daughter are blaming a Child Protective Services employee for compounding their pain by trying to cover-up the assault.
CPS employee accused of covering up child’s sexual assault
May 29, 2009
I cant understand how someone in a position of trust could do something like this, said the victims mother. Its devastated our family and turned my world upside down.
The suspect is a 12-year-old boy and the alleged assault took place a year ago at the couples Pearland home.
The couple says neighborhood parents and children had been invited over for a graduation party. The boys mother, a CPS Supervisor, left her son unattended at the party even though she allegedly knew her son had a history of assaulting little girls.
According to the victims father, there was a scream upstairs and he found the boy molesting his daughter.
It makes me feel less of a father. It makes me feel I didn’t do my job as a father, the victims father said.
Both parents say the suspects mother urged them not to call the police, because involving the authorities was not a good idea.
They say when police did become involved, CPS workers began showing up at their house without explaining why.
They were coming by without having any documentation to support that they should be coming by, the victims father said.
The 12-year-old boy will face a judge next week on charges of taking indecent liberties with a minor. The victims parents have filed a lawsuit alleging the suspects mother used her position at CPS to try to cover-up the crime.
We have material to support this claim and intend to prove it in court, said Fernando Valdes, the attorney representing the victims parents.
The suspects mother refused to comment, but CPS officials said they found no evidence she did anything wrong.
We conducted an investigation with her supervisor and found no wrong-doing on the employees part, CPS Spokesperson Gwen Carter said.
The victims parents fear their daughter has been irreparably harmed.
Shes changed and may never be the same little girl again, her father said.
