DSS Supervisor Fired for Injuring Child

Parents place an amazing level of trust in day care providers. The realities of modern life require many families to seek out day care just so they can make a living. By and large, most day care facilities are caring and supportive places for a child to learn basic skills. However, there are times when a bad worker or even a bad facility slips through the cracks.

In Union County, a DSS supervisor was fired after it was found that she had abused an 11-year-old boy. She had handcuffed the boy by his ankle to her front porch and hung a dead chicken around his neck. A sheriff’s deputy found the boy in this condition and took care of the situation. Police also charged the partner of the DSS supervisor, who was not at home when the boy was discovered. According to the termination letter, the charges were:

  • Intentional child abuse with serious physical injury
  • Willfully failing to discharge duties as a public official
  • False imprisonment
  • Cruelty to animals

Such stories are shocking, and parents will demand answers from the state and from the woman as to how this could ever happen. The parents of this child and the other children in the care of this woman may choose to file a civil suit because of the injuries their children received. No parent should have to tolerate seeing their child injured by someone they trusted. Call Auger & Auger if you need to file a daycare injury lawsuit. We can help bring you justice.
