Default DAYTONA BEACH -- Ex social worker charged with falsifying reports

Ex social worker charged with falsifying reports

DAYTONA BEACH -- A former investigator with the state Department of
Children & Families accused last year of falsifying investigative
reports is now charged with official misconduct, a felony, authorities
said Friday.


Reardon
James William Reardon, 57, was arrested Thursday after a lengthy
investigation by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. Reardon is
accused of documenting that he had face-to-face contact with a woman
being investigated in April 2007 for locking her 7-year-old daughter in
a bedroom.

Although Reardon spoke with the DeLand woman over the phone,
face-to-face contacts never happened as Reardon said they did in April
2007, investigators said.

"Those actions will not be tolerated," Reggie Williams, the local DCF
administrator, said, adding that protecting children is the agency's top
priority. "When records are not maintained truthfully, the potential for
that child to be unsafe exists."

The case came to light when a guidance counselor at George Marks
Elementary School spoke with the mother under investigation, the
charging document states.

The mother told the counselor she had not seen Reardon that month,
contradicting Reardon's claims he had been to the home.

"I don't remember falsifying any documentation," Reardon said when
confronted by state authorities in an internal investigation, court
records show.

Reardon, who had been with the DCF since late 2002, said he did not
remember whether he visited the home.

"I may have screwed up; I may not have," he said, according to the
report. "I don't know."

He added that he had a heavy caseload.

Reardon could not be reached for comment Friday.

Reardon was one of 85 investigators for the local office of the state
agency, which includes Volusia, Flagler, Putnam and St. Johns counties.
Williams said there have been two other reports of records being falsely
entered over the past two years but nothing that resulted in an arrest.

Reardon, who faces up to five years in prison if convicted of the
third-degree felony, was released on his own recognizance. A plea
hearing is scheduled March 5.






An Inconvenient Truth about Child Protective Services, Foster care, and
the Child Protection "INDUSTRY"

Child Protective Services Does not protect children...
It is sickening how many children are subject to abuse, neglect and even
killed at the hands of CPS.

every parent should read the free handbook from
connecticut dcf watch...

http://www.connecticutdcfwatch.com

Number of Cases per 100,000 children in the US
These numbers come from The National Center on
Child Abuse and Neglect in Washington. (NCCAN)
Recent numbers have increased significantly for CPS

Perpetrators of Maltreatment

Physical Abuse CPS/Foster care 160, biological Parents 59
Sexual Abuse CPS/Foster care 112, biological Parents 13
Neglect CPS/Foster care 410, biological Parents 241
Medical Neglect CPS/Foster care 14 biological Parents 12
Fatalities CPS/Foster care 6.4, biological Parents 1.5

Imagine that, 6.4 children die at the hands of the very agencies that
are supposed to protect them and only 1.5 at the hands of parents per
100,000 children. CPS perpetrates more abuse, neglect, and sexual abuse
and kills more children then parents in the United States. If the
citizens of this country hold CPS to the same standards that they hold
parents too. No judge should ever put another child in the hands of ANY
government agency because CPS nationwide is guilty of more harm and
death than any human being combined. CPS nationwide is guilty of more
human rights violations and deaths of children then the homes from which
they were removed. When are the judges going to wake up and see that
they are sending children to their death and a life of abuse when
children are removed from safe homes based on the mere opinion of a
bunch of social workers.

AMERICA'S HIDDEN HOLOCAUST

Currently Child Protective Services violates more Constitutionally
guaranteed liberties & Civil rights on a daily basis then all other
agencies combined, Including the National Security agency/Central
intelligence agency wiretaping programs…

A recent study has found that 12-18 months after leaving foster ca

30% of the nation’s homeless are former foster children.
27% of the males and 10% of the females had been incarcerated
33% were receiving public assistance
37% had not finished high school
2% receive a college degree
50% were unemployed

Children in foster care are three to six times more likely than children
not in care to have emotional, behavioral and developmental problems,
including conduct disorders, depression, difficulties in school and
impaired social relationships. Some experts estimate that about 30% of
the children in care have marked or severe emotional problems. Various
studies have indicated that children and young people in foster care
tend to have limited education and job skills, perform poorly in school
compared to children who are not in foster care, lag behind in their
education by at least one year, and have lower educational attainment
than the general population.
*Casey Family Programs National Center for Resource Family Support

80 percent of prison inmates have been through the foster care system.

The highest ranking federal official in charge of foster care, Wade Horn
of the Department of Health and Human Services, is a former child
psychologist who says the foster care system is a giant mess and should
just be blown up.

http://abcnews.go.com/print?id=2017991

Four rigorous studies have found that at least 30 percent of America’s
foster children could be home right now if their parents had decent housing.

This study found thousands of children already in foster care who would
have done better had child protection agencies not taken them away in
the first place.

The bottom line? - Child Protective Services and the Foster Care system
for the most part turns out young adults that are nothing more than
walking wreckage...

CURRENTLY CHILD PROTECTIVE SERVICES VIOLATES MORE CONSTITUTIONALLY
GUARANTEED LIBERTIES & CIVIL RIGHTS ON A DAILY BASIS THEN ALL OTHER
AGENCIES COMBINED INCLUDING THE NATIONAL SECURITY AGENCY/CENTRAL
INTELLIGENCE AGENCY WIRETAPPING PROGRAMS....

CHILD PROTECTIVE SERVICES, HAPPILY DESTROYING THOUSANDS OF INNOCENT
FAMILIES YEARLY NATIONWIDE AND COMING TO YOU'RE HOME SOON...

BE SURE TO FIND OUT WHERE YOUR CANDIDATES STANDS ON THE ISSUE OF
REFORMING OR ABOLISHING CHILD PROTECTIVE SERVICES ("MAKE YOUR CANDIDATES
TAKE A STAND ON THIS ISSUE.") THEN REMEMBER TO VOTE ACCORDINGLY IF THEY
ARE "FAMILY UNFRIENDLY" IN THE NEXT ELECTION...
