Ultimate Guide to Understanding CPS Child Abuse Case

This report came from a spokesperson from the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services. This comes on the heels of the revelation that the FBI had been weaponized to censor stories in what appears to be political partisan attacks. Parents and others are worried about the expansion of big government into their lives. Let’s look at the latest overreach by public servants and what the video allegedly shows a small child was explicitly told.

What Happened?

The CPS worker (who was hired as CPS support staff) was recorded by the child involved in the case as the person in the video. In the video, the girl was asked to become a prostitute. According to family law attorney Mike Schneider, the video represented “almost a threat” if the needs of the CPS worker weren’t met or the girl didn’t do what she wanted her to do.

This child abuse case has raised several problems within the Child Protective Services in the state. The following article will outline everything you need to know about this case regarding the Texas Child Protective Services and how people who may have children in care must hire the services of a reputable lawyer to file a formal complaint against the authorities.

Behind the Report from the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services

Keisha Bazley, the girl’s mom, confirmed to the authorities that she had nine children and turned to the Texas Child Protective Services since her girl was “running away and causing trouble when she was at school.”

Where Was the Girl Staying?

Until the incident, the girl was living at the Harris County Hotel, where she was awaiting placement in the Texas foster care system. According to the report, the daughter told the Child Protective Services employee to give her some food, and that’s when the CPS worker (since dismissed from her position) proposed to the girl to become a prostitute or do sex work.

Keisha Bazley told the authorities that the girl started recording the conversation as soon as the CPS Support Staff worker who had been brazenly telling her to become a prostitute. Bazley stated: “When my daughter told me the worker had been telling her to do these things, she decided to record her.”

What Happened After the Girl Recorded the Video?

Generally speaking, the video reportedly shows the Child Protective Services employee persuading the girl, who had been causing trouble at school, to become a prostitute. Some other things the worker told the 14-year-old include: “This is how you make money” and “I used to do this, and you could do the same thing.”

Bazley filed an official claim with Family Services right after seeing the video. She claimed: “If I were to do something like this to my child, I would be called a horrible parent.” Aside from claiming she would be called a horrible parent, she also claimed she could lose her kids if she ever did something like that.

Once the mother made the report about what the daughter told her, the CPS Agency’s Commissioner, Jamie Masters, went to Houston to apologize to both the mother and daughter.

Other Statements

Marissa Gonzales, who is an agency spokeswoman, stated in an interview that: “The safety and appropriateness with which children must be treated is our paramount concern.”

On the other hand, law attorney Mike Schneider claimed that he would be bashed if he ever did something like that to his child. He also said that while this case only involved “one bad rogue worker,” it worried him since this could become a bigger problem. He insisted that the agency must make sure that it’s not just one person since the agency was also housing other foster kids at the moment.

What Happened to the Worker?

The support staff was dismissed on August 10 after allegedly telling the 14-year-old girl to become a prostitute. Overall, the identity of the worker was never revealed to the authorities.

Where’s the Girl Today?

Currently, the 14-year-old girl moved to a foster home since the state went to a hearing to take the girl out of the state’s care and lost. According to Family Law Attorney, Mike Schneider, the state didn’t inform the court that there was a video.

The lawyer also stated that it was incredibly disingenuous for the agency to ignore the fact that people working there were trying to prostitute a child and not bring that to the court’s attention in the hearing.

Seeking Justice for Your Loved Ones Should Be Your Paramount Concern

While Bazley filed an official complaint successfully and got the worker fired and the agency’s commissioner to apologize, that isn’t enough to cover the emotional trauma that the 14-year-old may have suffered from experiencing that.

As mentioned by the agency spokeswoman, the appropriateness with which children are treated is our paramount concern, and if there are any cases that attempt to harm a child in any way, you must seek legal action immediately.
