Amish couple sues Trumbull County Children Services

Amish couple sues Trumbull County Children Services

WARREN

An Amish couple, who adopted the biological daughter of a couple convicted of raping her at the Trumbull County Children Services offices on Reeves Road in 2011, has sued the agency and three workers.

The lawsuit, filed in Trumbull County Common Pleas Court by Atty. Michael D. Rossi, doesn’t name the parents, who live in West Farmington. They are listed as Jane Doe and John Doe.

But the lawsuit names three employees that it says are responsible for the decision to allow the girl to receive partially unsupervised visits with her biological parents starting in January 2011.

At that time, the agency decided that workers could check in on the visits about every 15 minutes, even though the baby’s biological father, Cody Beemer, had been convicted of raping a 3-year-old when Beemer was a teenager. The visits lasted until September 2011, when the rapes were discovered on a cellphone video the Beemers had made.

The suit says Jessica Watkins was the case worker in charge of the child’s case starting in January 2011 and that Robin Moon and Marilyn Pape were the supervisors on the case.

The lawsuit seeks financial damages of $3 million for the child as a result of the decision to allow Cody Beemer, along with the child’s biological mother, Felicia Beemer, to have visits with her that were not constantly supervised.

The decision led to Cody Beemer and Felicia Beemer repeatedly raping the child during visits, the lawsuit said. The girl was less than a year old at the time.

I'm glad SOMEONE is trying to hold Children's "Services" accountable for their willful neglect.
