Helpless-aunt in gret need of help !! December 10, 2006 2:34 AM
Im in desperate need of legal links on child-abuse for wv. We are having a hard time finding a lawyer willing to fight the state for legal neglect & possibly alot more.The state failed to help my 7yr.old great-nephew & 3yr.old niece after numerous reports by family,neighbors,teachers even doctors.Took the state years before they steps in to protect these children. WV. state Prosecuter of Hancock Co. failed to prosecute the parents. There had to be enough evidence to go with, the 7yr.old had to be placed in a mental hospital for children when he was removed from his home because he has some mental problems caused by abuse, that should have been enough evidence to go with.The children went through many diffrent Child Protection Workers so nobody followed through with the case.The mother signed over both children to the state,divorced the father and got remarried.The father signed over the 7yr.old to state but not the 3yr.old. The Judge in Hancock Co. and the C.P.S. set the father up on a Parental Plan to gain back custody of the child. Somebody did not do their jobs at protecting these children but everbody is doing a good job at covering the mistakes to avoid being sued!! And I plan to sue,not because of money I just want somebody to pay for the abuse and neglect these children suffered. And they want to send the 3yr.old back to the abusive father.How many more children have to die before they listen and change things.Our Governor Joe Manchin passed the Child Protection Act after little Logan Goodall & many more But would not name it " Logans Law " WV. recieved grants for this cause, now where is the help at? WV. child abuse/neglect rate is at 22.5% This needs addressed!! For the people that dont have legal resources to help spread this topic eveywhere you can and write to our governor in WV./GOV.COM and demand help for us!!
