In 2004 Collin county cps removed my children from school and daycare. I was a single mother working and going to college. I was being harrased by my ex and they knew it. He told them he wanted my kids taken so he could move on with his life and not have to pay child support. My oldest son made allegations of sexual abuse by his father and cps covered it up because they had forced me to leave him at his father's when it happened. I
was harrassed by cps for 17 1/2 months. I was not giving an attorney until nine months after it started. my ex had filed and had multiple people he knew file false reports over the previous 7 years. They were proven false and I had signed documents stating my name was supposed to be removed. Only to have those same false reports put in an affidavid of fact to the court and I was not allowed to refute them.

The attorney I was appointed (Martin Leyko) informed me there was no way I was going to get my kids back and even told me I should lie and say the allegations were true. My oldest son was assulted on multiple occasions by foster families and they covered it up. The attorney ad-litem (David Kleckner) stayed absentee and refused to help them, even after being contacted by the CASA representative(Denise Halmark). Denise Halmark also supervised many of our visitations, during which she would rwrite reports.

These reports were altered by her supervisors and she was told she was not permitted to write reports that were in anyway a posistive reflection of my childrens relationship with myself or with each other. I was harrassed every couple of days by Cathy Cammeron(The CPS Caseworker) because I told them they were not permitted to send my children to church(I am very protective when It comes to my children's religious education)I was accused of being athesist. When she found out I was volunteering to help feed the homeless in downtown with a church group she went off on me.

In the end I was laid off my job one week before my court date and was told there was no way they would postpone the court date. CPS only had 3 weeks jurisdiction left. I was told if I didn't relinquish my rights. I would have a judgement put against me and never have any contact with my kids again.

My attorney claimed he was ready for trial but he and I only spend about an hour together going over the two boxes of documents he was given. At the court house the day the trial started he said if he were me he would just give up now. (He wasn't willing to fight for us) I signed the relinquishment but it was contingent on certain provisions. I am to be able to send letters and gifts and my children are able to do the same. CPS must forward them.

Now it has been a year since I have seen my children I have sent them letters, christmas and birthday presents and have not gotten anything from my children. I don't believe my children haven't sent me anything. I am pretty sure CPS just isn't forwarding them to me and don't know whether they have forwarded my gifts to my children.At least one of my three children would have sent something in the past year.

Collin County CPS Corrupt

AUTHOR: Justice1 - (U.S.A.)

I pray that you get your children back. Collin County CPS made my life a living hell, I am so glad they are out of my life. Hopefully one day they will be exposed for everything that they are. The whole Collin County System is so very corrupt.

#2 Consumer Comment

I am a victim as well as my children!

AUTHOR: Michelle - (U.S.A.)

I was referred to Mrs. Ealsey in March of 2007 when I was going through the Road Adventure in Richardson. The people who referred me were Stan and Pat Rogers. Stan's son is one of ministers at Prestonwood Baptist Church on Plano Parkway (where my boys and I were baptized).

I had previously been referred to attorney David Schiller of Prestonwoods' Foundation which helps its' members write up their Last Will and Testament. I was referred to him by the Women's Ministry Debbie Stewart. Because Mr. Schiller was unwilling to help me, he referred me to Ann Bibi' Bacchus. Who in turn referred me to Rosella Pietrobon Segreti. While she did take the $2500 I had to borrow from a high school friend on October 31, 2005. Segreti failed me and my sons' as she withdrew from my case on Dec. 19, 2005.

All of my attorney's are claiming that they are being threatened to misrepresent me or else! I am being told that they are being threatened by the LDS/Mormon church members who are directly involved in my cases. I too have been threatened several times, but I have not given up! So why should they or you be allowed to give up too?

When I had confided in the Rogers they referred me to Mrs. Easley. She seemed very sincere in wanting to help me. But then she disclosed that she was once affiliated with David king Haynes (opposing counsel representing my ex-Gregory L. van Dyke of Salt Lake City, Utah). This case involving my son is still pending; therefore I cannot give out a lot of details as we have trial set for August 24, 2009 in McKinney 199-51878-05.

When I did meet with Mrs. Ealsey she would yell at me and my two sons. I also found out that she had part of her cranium removed from a tumor some two years prior and that she was not the same person. How can a person make an informed decision as to have legal representation when even the attorney does not disclose pertinent information to make a major decision to legal representation?
I was made several promises by Mrs. Easley, like "you will have your son, Chandler back by the end of the summer", "If you do not place your son on the airplane you will be just like "them" and "I will quite as your attorney if you don't" and other threatening language.

Then the final straw that broke the camels' back in our working relationship was when I told Mrs. Easley in the hallway of court on September 27, 2007, I told her that while she was in the court that Mr. Haynes had walked by and my other son, Cameron gave David K. Haynes a dirty look. Her reply to me was as she yelled at me in the hall, "This is what everyone is saying about you, that you are crazy!" It was then I realized that I made a HUGE mistake in hiring her. As I confided in her! I went into court moments late and fired her in front of Judge Dry, David K. Haynes, the Bailiff and court reporter.

Other attorney's from her office tried to have me go back to their office to discuss things. But when I did and to get my personal files, photos and other evidence to present my case Pro se, I was met by a Plano Police Officer Scott and told by the property management that if I stepped foot on the premises that I would be arrested for criminal trespass. Which I did nothing wrong. This became a reoccurring theme when I went to CPS, the Plano ISD and even CASA.

I have not seen nor spoken to my son, Chandler now age 12 in over 20 months!
Because I mentioned to Mrs. Easley that my "other" older son, Cameron knew something more than he was telling me which prompted her to say "what other people were saying about me" prompted CPS to take that son away from me on May 9, 2008 and now the State of Texas has permanent custody of him. I know for a fact that he (Cameron) was helping David K. Haynes and my ex-Greg L. Van Dyke because I went to the Spy Shop in Plano and purchased a hidden camera. Yes, my son Cameron knew about the camera, but what he did not know was that it was on one morning when I got into the shower and the camera disclosed that my son was helping Mr. Haynes by allowing people into my home when I was not there. When I asked him why he helped them. He stated, "Because 'they' told me that you were crazy".

Cameron is now 17 and was taken when he was 16. From May 9, 08 when he was taken till June 2008 I was allowed to see him for one hour and no telephone contact. The only reason why I was allowed to see him at CASA in McKinney was to give him all of his clothes. Then I was not allowed to see him for another couple of weeks. Then from that point I saw him for one hour supervised visits for 2-3 weeks. Then no visits from July 30, 2008 till October 7, 2008. Then a couple in Nov. 2008, but nothing over Thanksgiving holiday, nor my birthday. Then twice in December, but nothing on Christmas. Then on Dec. 29, 2008 till April 16, 2009 no visits no contact at all. Then I told by my three attorney's Carole Stevens, Kathy Erickson and David Kleckner all for CPS case 417-30023-2008 that I must relinquish rights to my 17 year old son, because I would never get him back till her turned 18. Just because he stood out in front of his high school for 30 minutes on Friday, May 2, 2008 and Thursday, May 7, 2008 for 30 minutes. They claimed 'neglectful supervision'.

Because of these cases I lost my home, my cars, my two dogs, visitation of my two sons and a lot of my personal possessions were stolen from my home and storage.

All this is over money! Not about what is in the best interests of my two sons'. They are both of legal age and are told by CPS and their respective attorney's that I am crazy, which is absolutely not true. I have been slandered and libeled ever since I left Utah (May 2000) when a then 26-year old LDS/Mormon Bishop Nathan Smedley counseled me to move closer to family (which was either California or here in Texas). I took his counsel which I thought was sound at the time. Now after the past nearly 10 years I realize that worst thing I could have ever done was listen to a younger man who had no life experience with children of his own.
I at the time truly thought that people in the LDS/Mormon church had mine and my two sons' best interests are heart only to find out that they wanted themselves and others in Utah to be spared the humiliation of believing the slanderous lies of others, instead of believing the truth I was telling. Instead I was met by other LDS/Mormon members on the Plano ISD board, teachers, administrators and the like wanting to protect their own self interests, instead of the children (namely my sons) whom they had the responsibility and moral obligation in protecting (my sons').

If you are homeowner (which means that you are a tax payer who supports the Plano ISD) you have the right to stand up for yourselves and your children and not allow this to happen to you as well. By helping me and my children, would in effect be helping you and your children too. I am pleading with you, if you have any information that could help my case on August 24, 2009 (199-51878-05) please come forward and contact my current attorney, Lance Baxter in McKinney on Virginia.

The teachers and administrators at Sigler, Wilson and Vines and countless attorneys' like Howard Shapiro (Florence Shapiro's husband). I personally spoke to Kristi Rome, Florence's constituent in Austin, Texas on June 20, 2005 when I picked up my son, Chandler from the airport after a 5 week visit with his dad in Utah.

All of these people of authority knew what was going on and they just sat by and watched it happen in fear of losing their jobs. Yet some of these people are voted into office, they allowed a huge injustice of our legal system to happen to not just me and my sons', but also to other countless single parents in the Collin County Courts.

I did meet and discuss the issues with Duncan Webb (10/2005), Melody Timinski (10/2005), Tom Solomon (2006), Debbie Moilenan (2002-2003), Sandra Muzquiz (2003-2006), and countless others within the PISD and they all failed mine and your children by doing nothing!

I did my due diligence. I even filed a Code of Ethics violation with Gov. Rick Perry's office on Nov. 28, 2005, but because 2006 was an election year, my complaint was brushed under the rug. Trust me I did everything I could think of and everything that was recommended to me.

It is imperative that we all stand up for one another and correct the wrongs and make our justice system a working justice system once again! Because until we do, this will continue to happen each and every day to the innocent lives of our children that we hold most dear on our hearts and souls.

Please do not be disillusioned into thinking that you cannot do anything to help. That is what some' people want you to think that you are powerless. You/I/We have the power, we just need to stand together and fight back!

I know that because I have total Faith in God that I have been able to get through these very trying times in my life. While I am no longer a member per say' at any religious one organization. I will no longer praise any one religious group. I do praise my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! For if I did not have total faith in Him, I would not be able to tell my story (and this is only a small portion of the entire story).

Please if you are in the same or similar situation, please pray and give you thoughts to Him, allow Him to take some of your burdens from you. Trust in Him!

I am a human being and I too make mistakes, but through first forgiving myself, I am able to forgive others. While it is very difficult to forget, as I will never forget what has happened to me and my two sons' I do know that faith in God is the only way to my Grace and Mercy shown by Jesus Christ.

Update! STealing from myself and my children

AUTHOR: Teresa - (U.S.A.)

I was told to sign the relinguishment so a judgement would not be filed against me. I wrote letters to the attorneys and left messages tring to make sure my children were getting all the presents and letters i was sending them on to be sent a letter saying a judgement had been placed against me and they would not verify what my children had recieved or if my children had sent me anything. Which was the terms of the relinguishment. They are liars and theives!
