I live in a very small town in Oregon where everyone makes up accusations for fun. My husband was accused of Hurting his granddaughter. CPS investigated and found that allegations were unfounded and closed the case. A year later friends of ours had CPS called on them, neighbor thought the kids were left alone. CPS showed up and seen my youngest son there playing and told them to keep our family away and gave the lady details. Her case closed as unfounded. Well she stated she would go to court with us for what the worker had said to her. Then another worker was on another assignment here in this small town and again brought my husbands name up and details on the case. Let me stress, they filed court documents they have the case closed as unfounded. Is it worth for my Husband to SUE?It just upsetting that a year later after the case has been Proved unfounded, that the agency is ALLOWED to spread "rumors" OR give details on a closed case that they closed for unfounded proof. As for the "EMOTIONAL". We work and live in this SMALL town. Less than 1000 people. This is a charter attack on their part. It hurts us at our job and our children. I don't feel that my husband has to explain to away rumors every time CSP comes into town. I understand their job and have some respect for what they do. We worked with them on the false allegation. And they did a thorough investigation, I have the papers to show the depth they went. But I do feel they are over stepping their Authority. What if any protection Do we have in order to be protected. Especially my children? There job is to protect children and to HELP Familys. How are they Helping any child or family if they are part of that problem?
