Trumbull CSB policies to be reviewed after toddler raped

WARREN

The Ohio Department of Job and Family Services has agreed to conduct an independent review of the visitation policies of the Trumbull County Children Services Board after allegations that a Warren couple raped a 1-year-old child they were visiting at the facility in July.

Nick Kerosky, executive director of CSB, said in a press release that CSB asked Ohio Job and Family Services to conduct the review.

Cody Beemer, 22, and his wife, Felicia Beemer, 21, both of Austin Avenue Southwest, were indicted Thursday on rape charges that could result in each of them getting a life prison sentence.

They are accused of performing sex acts on their 12-month-old child during a visitation at CSB, 2282 Reeves Road NE.

They also were indicted on charges of pandering sexually oriented matter involving a minor, which carries a penalty of up to eight years in prison, and gross sexual imposition, which carries a penalty of up to five years in prison.

The allegations came to light because family members told police about a cellphone video the couple recorded while purportedly committing the crimes.

“Trumbull County Children Services is shocked and saddened by this terrible tragedy,” Kerosky said in the press release.

“We are cooperating with the prosecutor’s office on the criminal investigation. Beyond that, this agency will follow the recommendation of the Trumbull County Prosecutor’s Office and will not comment on a current criminal investigation and prosecution.”

Kerosky has refused to discuss details of the visitation, such as how much staff supervision took place during the visit.

“After the criminal cases are completed and the review conducted, Trumbull County Children Services welcomes the opportunity to share a full accounting, as permitted by law, to the public.”

These (govt) agencies use children to make their money.....children are drugged and treated like commodities. What else is new?

The GLBT crowd has their rights . The social workers will be working for years to undo the trauma over this arrest . Some serious jail time for them is too much to expect . . ..

Maybe we should fire everyone at CSB and start over with a new staff. There are plenty of educated people looking for work and it's obvious these clowns don't know what they're doing.

According to the grandmother, who was quoted in the Tribune, this woman has birthed 4 children, the last 2 of whom (at least) have been taken by CSB at birth. She is the "mother" of the little girl beaten and killed in foster care a year or two ago. The grandmother is outraged at CSB, but seems to have no clue that her daughter should not continue breeding. Beemer is a case for court-ordered sterilization. The CSB issue is another story, heads should roll if this was supposed to be a supervised visit and this happened to the child while under their care.

First off, I am familiar with the procedures at CSB and they don't enjoy taking children. Second of all, the supervised visits aren't supervised 100% of the time- which that might change. The sick thing is the the ones that assaulted to girl, because they had no idea if they were being watched or not. Stick a needle in their arm and call it a day.

"CSB don't enjoy taking children." an excuse for not doing their job. Why did they go into Social Service work in the first place? Take the kid gloves off and deal with the dysfunctional parents, quit enabling. It's not about what they enjoy, isn't it suppose to be about whats best for the child?

I agree that they should clean house at CSB, fire everyone. They have a history of covering up for each other and hiding the facts.

It is because of idiots like the CSB employees that foster parents with great skills and intentions get treated like criminals. Here we see clearly who the real criminals are.

Since training to become a foster parent myself, I always felt they were not to be trusted, period.

Criminal negligence and failure to protect a child in clear and present danger.

Remember the little girl that died as a resuilt of their negligence a few years ago?

The parents of this child should get life. The CSB should be dissolved, no reviews or policie changes will ever help these children, one is dead and another now scarred for life.
