Reversed on Appeal
Henderson & Waterkotte, P.C. represented a Ferguson, Missouri woman, a registered nurse, on an appeal to the Child Abuse & Neglect Review Board after Social Services made a finding that our client was the perpetrator of neglect or abuse of a child. Social Services alleged that our client failed to protect her children from the children’s father who was alleged to have engaged in sexual misconduct involving the children. We argued to the Board that there was absolutely no evidence to support their finding that our client knew or should have known about the sexual misconduct. The Board agreed and reversed the Social Services finding. Our client was removed from the child abuse database, and her career as a registered nurse was saved.
