The cps worker asked me if I knew about my girlfriend using suboxone ,,I said yes in front of three other people ,she then put in her report that I admitted to saying I knew about my GF using Zanax in order to bring me into the cps case, I even had my kids taken for a while until she passed all her tests , when we went to court I had told my lawyer about the lie and he spoke up as well as the cps lawyer , the cps worker admitted that I didn't say Xanadu buy rather I did say suboxone which was legal and prescribed
Can the worker lie? Can anyone lie in court? Of course the answer is no. And it is not clear if this was an intentional lie or simply a misstatement between Xanax and suboxone (both of which would legitimately raise concerns). It would also appear that the "lie" was caught and exposed, and I assume the hearing and the decision followed accordingly. There is nothing actionable here.
TO ALL QUESTIONERS: I provide this answer in an effort to assist and guide only. The answers are qualified further by you providing the full and complete facts and background or not, and by the space limitations of this forum. The answer does not serve as a substitute for a live sit-down with an attorney. In no way is any answer to be construed as a formal giving of legal advice nor is an attorney-client relationship formed. You are not permitted to quote or refer to answers given in any court pleading or hearing. TO QUESTIONERS FROM WV & NY: Although I am licensed to practice in your state, be advised that I practice on a day-to-day basis in Massachusetts. I answer questions in your state in areas of the law in which I practice, and in which I feel comfortable trying to offer you assistance based on my knowledge of specific statutes in your state and/or general principles applicable in all states. Being licensed to practice there, however, does not provide me with the detailed knowledge of local procedures and practices that comes from day-to-day work. It is always best to work with attorneys and court personnel in your own area to deal with specific problems and factual situations.
