I just received a call from a gentleman who was falsely accused of child sexual abuse 14 years ago. The charges were unfounded, and following that disposition, the caller to our hotline thought the matter was closed. Not so. Recently he tried to complete an adoption and found out that the matter was still recorded by CPS. The result? The adoption was blocked!
This is not an unusual situation. We have handled many cases such as this. CPS will often dig in their heels, notwithstanding a finding of “unfounded”. Anyone expereincing these problems is urged to contact us at 1.800.400.8886.
