Attorney Wants Governor To Take Over Trumbull CSB
A local attorney is asking Governor John Kasich to take over the Trumbull County Children Services agency.
David Engler, who represents the maternal grandmother of a victim allegedly raped by herbiological parents during a supervised visit at CSB, requested the move in a letter sent to Governor John Kasich.
Engler said CSB allowed the father to visit with the infant, knowing that he was a previous sex offender.
He also said there were no cameras in the visitation rooms.
“The bottom line issue is once they found out a crime occurred then they started completing records that should have been competed for the last 11 months and that is very serious,” Engler said.
CSB director Nick Kerosky said while some people want to twist the facts for their own agenda, he believes better record keeping could not have prevented what happened to the victim.
“I think the governor will do the right thing with it, and I think the ODJFS report speaks for itself. From the beginning the questions were on the level of supervision and I hope people look at the report and take it for what it is,” Kerosky said.
Trumbull County CSB is also in the process of putting monitoring cameras in all visitation rooms.
CSB officials stress that there are other investigations still ongoing on the case, including one by the state Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation and the crimnal case where the two biological parents are facing charges.
Parents Felicia Banks Beemer and Cody Beemer remain behind bars.
