Child Welfare Fraud and Abuse in Clatsop County

Taylor McLaren and her family are victims of egregious abuse of power by Clatsop County SOSCF and Juvenile Court. They have fled Oregon to escape family destruction by "children's services".

See www.oregonfamilyrights.com/oregon/taylor
Michael McLaren's letter to Governor Kulongoski asking for release from SOSCF
Michael McLaren's letter to Governor Kulongoski asking for release from SOSCF
Taylor McLaren and her three children are living an underground existence because of a fraudulent dependency order against Taylor. Custody of her children was sought by Tina Amelia, Clatsop County SOSCF, after Taylor complained about the dishonest, derelict handling of her 14 year old daughter's case by "Children's Services". They lost track of this girl and lied about it to the mother. After she filed a tort claim against the state, SOSCF immediately came after her with false allegations of child abuse and neglect, and Phillip Nelson, Clatsop County juvenile judge, signed the fraudulent court order, allowing SOSCF to come and seize the children. Upon learning this, Taylor fled with her children over a year ago. Taylor's now 16 year old daughter, and 17 year old son, have both given testimony about their mother, stating she has never abused of neglected any of her children.

The full story is here: www.oregonfamilyrights.com/oregon/taylor

Please urge Governor Kulongoski to investigate this case, and grant clemency to this family, so that they may live a normal life, free from fear of family destruction by SOSCF.

KidsDeserveCaring

I know nothing of this specific case and I'm no fan of Child Protective Services (having battled them many times) but I find this website to be highly offensive and counterproductive. Kids DO get abused by their parents and occasionally innocent parents DO get abused by the system. At least adults can fight back but a child cannot.

I have personally seen horrific abuse perpetuated against kids by their own families, should this be allowed to go on in the name of parental rights? Do parents own their kids? And should they be allowed to do ANYTHING they want to another person because they managed to get a sperm and an egg together?

Social work did not arise becuse a lot of social workers decided to make up lies, it arose because communities became fragmented and stopped caring. The Oregon Family Rights folks are literally throwing out the baby with the bath water. Don't buy into their neo-con propaghanda.

The Oregon social services are so busy and over worked that I doubt any worker would take the time to wrongly accuse someone. Get real.

Citizens of Clatsop County have a lot to learn about SOSCF! 17.Nov.2003 18:51

Having much experience with this system as a Foster Parent, I can honestly say - nothing would surprise me1

Here's Another One If You Find Taylor McClaren's Story Hard To Swallow 30.May.2004 07:19

Patrick McGee pmcgee@pacifier.com

Lee Coleman is DHS area manager for Tillamook, Columbia and Clatsop Counties
Ms Coleman;

I think it was back in March, 2004 that I called you about a piece emailed to my web site, "Our Astoria" at  http://bridgecity.homestead.com by a Sydney Carton at  teensreachingout@hotmail.com regarding Dean Rieman and Pat Boggess in the employee of Astoria/Clatsop County Children and Family Services.

You did say, at the time, you had a Pat Burness in your emplyee while there is a Pat Boggess listed as Line Manager for Clatsop County Welfare Office.

As of this date, there has been no response from you regarding this issue.

I want to ask you again if you have a statement to make on this issue or do you choose to still ignore it?

I want to ask you as well, how much you know about and can divulge on the Taylor McClaren case?

Here, to refresh your memory is the email

My unserstanding is that Dean Rieman specifically asked for and was assigned the case below.

The Clatsop County District Attorney(Joshua Marquis) says he knows very little about Rieman and Boggess or their background however his office is prosecuting this case as recently as a March 8, 2004 proceeding.

<b>Can Clatsop County afford the new caseworker DHS has hired to work in the local Services to Children and Families branch office in Astoria?

Dean Reiman is one of the caseworkers, along with his wife Pat Boggess, who was involved in the infamous Wenatchee Witch Hunt case of the mid 1990s.

Dean Reiman is SE's caseworker, you have already been told about, who lied to SE causing her to run to Reno, Nevada. Mr. Reiman seems to have a penchant for lying.

Before national attention brought a halt to the worst witch hunt in U.S.

history, 43 adults were falsely arrested on 29,726 fabricated charges of

child sex abuse involving 60 children. The witch hunt, which devastated so

many lives at taxpayers' expense, was launched in 1994 when a Child

Protective Services supervisor told the local Wenatchee office to find some cases to justify its budget.

For a quick glimpse of one example of Reiman's handiwork:

 http://seattlepi.nwsource.com/powertoharm/therapy2.html

The ACLU has confirmed that the state of Washington's child protection system, instead of serving the child's best interest did the following: allowed forced incarceration in an out-of-state mental hospital until sexual abuse allegations were produced; allowed the lead police investigator for the sexual abuse case involving the child to serve as the child's foster parent; allowed the police to dictate when a child's relationship with a therapy agency should be abruptly terminated; allowed records of interviews with child witnesses to be destroyed; failed to require that child witness interviews be well-documented; allowed coercive child interview methods to be used and fails to require minimum standards for such interviews; failed to clarify proper roles of law enforcement and CPS in conduct of child interviews; failed to provide an effective mechanism for quality control and accountability in child protection investigations.


 http://www.aclu-wa.org/pubs/wenatchee_abuse.html

Dean Reiman was named as a defendant in a case directly related to his conduct in regards to the Wenatchee Witch Hunt when another caseworker disagreed with the way in which the Wenatchee branch of DHS was handling the allegations. Juana Vasquez, the director of Child Welfare Services in Wenatchee, challenged the charges brought against Robert Devereaux and was subsequently fired. She named CPS and DCFS and individual caseworkers including Dean Reiman, Tim Abbey, Pat Boggus. After she filed, she encountered anger and resentment. She said that she would implement policies and they would be returned to her desk with the large letters, "B.S." written on them. The lawsuit was successful. The trial resulted in an unanimous finding of discrimination by an all-white jury. Ms. Vasquez received $60 thousand, but she didn't feel that the suit had been about money. She had believed it would send the message that the office's discriminatory practices would no longer be tolerated. The contrary was true. Senior DCFS caseworkers continued to ignore her authority. They continued to manipulate families to get to her. Vasquez was then given home assignment, in which she was no longer allowed to come in to the DHS office.

Finding the working conditions intolerable there she then brought another lawsuit against the state and was awarded $1.57 million.


 http://www.ags.uci.edu/~dehill/witchhunt/ccla/pages/juana.htm

To date, the city of Wenatchee, the state, and Chelan and Douglas counties

have either agreed to or been ordered to pay plaintiffs at least $10

million. This year, at least $1.21 million has been paid to settle

lawsuits.Though settlements have been reached, about two dozen people are still seeking damages from the government agencies, public defenders and other entities and individuals. Attorneys expect more suits as children who were interrogated and removed from their parents during the probe file their own claims. At least 14 children have already sued.


 http://www.injusticebusters.com/2003/Wenatchee_settlements.htm

Devereaux, a former California insurance executive, said he's since made peace with what happened to him. He said he felt some vindication when he settled his lawsuit with the city in 1999 for $290,000 and with the state last year for $80,000. He was the foster parent who Vasquez went to bat for because she felt that the charges against him were false. As a result of the allegations, Devereaux was forced to give up foster parenting and to hire a criminal attorney. Unable to make his mortgage payments and in need of money to cover his mounting legal bills, he sold his 3,000-square-foot Wenatchee house. He said the accusations hovering over him kept buyers away, and he had no choice but to sell the Ramona Avenue house for less than what it was worth. After the criminal charges went away, Devereaux was left to pick up the pieces of his life.


 http://www.ags.uci.edu/~dehill/witchhunt/cases/wenatchee/wen_report.htm

Another caseworker lost his job with the Wenatchee branch when he opposed

his co-workers actions.

 http://www.ags.uci.edu/~dehill/witchhunt/ccla/pages/garcia.htm

Witch Hunt: A True Story of Social Hysteria and Abused Justice was authored by Kathryn Lyon who describes As the media frenzy engulfed Wenatchee, townspeople wondered how a debauched group who committed horrific sex crimes against children lived in their midst for so long without detection.

Suddenly, in the name of justice, families were being broken up, individuals were accused of heinous crimes and were prosecuted--despite the protests of many townspeople questioning the methods of the so-called experts and accusers. Now, a lone observer, an independent attorney who spent a year in the explosive atmosphere of Wenatchee, pieces together the whole story of one of the most blatant cases of misuse of power and miscarried justice since the McCarthy witch hunts. As public outrage demanded justice, an

overzealous legal system perpetrated crimes just as devastating as child

sexual abuse: the persecution and condemnation of innocent people.

Call our local DHS's branch of Services to Children and Families and ask if

they know who Dean Reiman is and are aware the money he cost the taxpayers of Wenatchee, Chelan County as well as the state of Washington.

Your phone calls do work. At the recent hearings of SE in both Nevada and in Clatsop County the court remarked how many people really cared about the well-being of this child. When a child's world is being totally turned upside down just knowing that people care means a lot and prevents them from making unwise decisions.

Although the judge's acknowledgement of your concern were appreciated your presence is truly needed, especially if Wenatchee Reiman intends to take the stand. It should also be noted that Reiman was SE's caseworker a mere 10 days when he turned her life upside down and caused her to flee, yet the state is using him in the court proceedings as someone who knows SE and has tried to work with her. Reiman and SE had only had one 10 minute phone conversation and one 20 minute meeting. Reiman, DHS and SCF representatives need to see your concern. If you absolutely can't make it call SCF and ask them about Reiman, who and why was he hired and who is going to pay for his

mistakes this time, aside from the children's lifes he ruins?

Dear Mr. Carton,

I have read with interest your emails regarding a person whom you call "SE".

I am aware of the case, as is the school district, DHS and the District

Attorney.

I believe at least some of the information you have been

disseminating is in error.

If you wish to discuss this matter to the extent

that the law allows, please feel free to call me at 503-338-6411 x1.

Thanks,

Rob Deu Pree



Obviously we feel that the information we have disseminated is not in error. SE's sister verified that Officer Hansen made the statements on her

voicemail, the boyfriend's family verified that they had been told that

Officer Hansen would go to the Warrenton school to arrest the sister in

front of everyone and the sister verified that the attorney, Steve Roamn,

did indeed call the DA's office to see if any arrest warrants were out for

the sisters. At this time if warrants have suddenly materialized it seems

rather like the tail wagging the dog, and much like Wenatchee scenario will

be played out here. If so, the lawsuits, for which we will all pay, are sure

to follow as well.

It would be interesting to know where Dean Reiman's wife Pat is now working.

It has been reported that she is in a managerial position in a local branch

of a state service agency.

March 8th, 2004 is the next court hearing. At the one held today SE was placed in the temporary custody of her paternal grandmother. SE's mother said that she turned all parental rights over to the state as her daughter is incorrigible and uncontrollable. Until the next hearing neither SE's sister nor her mother is allowed to have any contact with her as each alleges that the other is harmful to SE. At the court hearing on March 8th evidence is to be presented regarding the allegations that SE is a delinquent (as alleged by her mother) and that her mother is mentally and emotionally ill as well as verbally and physically abusive (as alleged by SE and her sister).

Update on McLaren Hunt 24.Nov.2004 18:16

Susan Detlefsen motherinterrupted@motherinterrupted.us

I just now saw these comments and would like to speak to Pat Boggess and Rob De Pree about this.

This malicious prosecution has continued for two and half years now. Tyalor now has advocates in the Michigan House of Representatives and Congress. This malicious hunt for her three children is just plain wrong.

I would be happy to speak to someone about this. Susan Detlefsen

PS Regarding the comments of denial that there is anything fraudulent going on in CPS, I invite any of you to attend a juvenile (sham) proceedings.

I am working on a cable show, MotherInterrupted, that will continue to expose this problem.


CPS and Propaganda 24.Nov.2004 18:20

Susan Detlefsen motherinterrupted@motherinterrupted.us

This is propaganda, pretending that children are better off kidnapped by the state. Between 66 and 90% of kids taken were never abused, and the trauma they suffer from being kidnapped by strangers is more traumatic usually than anything their parents did to them.

No, parents do not own their children. We love them and care for them, but since the State of Oregon now owns the children, love and good parenting are thrown out the window.

By the way, you don't work for "children's services" do you? You're invited to talk on MotherInterrupted.


Pat Boggess should fry for what she's done 10.Aug.2005 21:38

pissed off parent

How can this woman still be in the child snatching business? I thought we had rights as citizens of this great country of ours. Not if Pat Boggess is on the prowl, or rather her broom. She took my children over one year ago in Clatsop County for no reason. Damn near everybody in that office is scared as hell to stand up and say anything. I think you can tell who is who there but not really. They all have rent or mortages to pay. The others they know what happened to the other employees who stood up for what was right in Wenatchee, they were axed. Im here to say it has got to stop NOW!!! When are we the people going to make a stand for ourselves and our children for goodness sake!! Allright all you out there who have had your children taken away in Clatsop County or any other let's get busy on it. I Want to here from you A.S.A.P. I have to go for now, may the Lord lead to do what is right!!

Contact the Juvenile Justice Project if you have child in foster system 17.Sep.2005 03:52

Syd

If you have a child in the foster system in Oregon the Juvenile Justice Project has information for you as well as legal representation for the child if s/he hasn't been provided with an attorney, yet. The sooner a child gets legal help the better. Also, contact CASA in Clatsop County. They are not friends with the DHS-Child Welfare office as they know what takes place there. Boggess has been demoted at least once, if not more, because Judge Brownhill has placed contempt of court charges against her for her refusal to follow the judges decrees. There is no reason that this woman remains in that office except ... what? SATAN? (ala church lady circa saturday night live). I think she knows how to pick up dirt on people and blackmails them. Contact CASA. Contact the County Commissioners and tell them you refuse to pay for this woman's mistakes, as in how much she has cost Wenatchee and Chelan County.

Before arriving in Wenatchee, Washington, where did the Boggess & Reiman family demolition team come from?

For information as to why she was hired, and why for a while her husband was hired as well (Dean Reiman, who has actually been named in the lawsuits being pressed in Washington as recent as 2004, was also a senior caseworker in the Wenatchee Sex Ring scandals) please email or call the state DHS offices:

For Clatsop County, you have to call Lee Coleman in St. Helens, because she is head of Tillamook, Clatsop and Columbia Counties. Which might explain a lot. We don't even have anyone hiring locally, so why do they care if they saddle us with someone who will cost our county millions of dollars? Which is something we should be asking our DA as well as our county commissioners and our city councilors. If they all protest the presence of this woman in our local DHS child welfare office, because of her track record and the FACT that her cases have cost the state of Washington and Chelan Co MILLIONS of dollars, DHS will HAVE to take notice.

Lee Coleman can be reached at (503) 397-3292 x305 her assistant in Astoria is Dee Bristol at (503) 325-9179 x318. Their emails are  Lee.Coleman@state.or.us and  Dee.Bristol@state.or.us
A list of all of the managers for all of the counties can be found at link to www.oregon.gov

The head of DHS-CHild Welfare? Hidden now, deep within the bowels of DHS, every since the debacle of the Oregon City Girls Miranda Gaddis and Ashley Pond case, there is no notice on their website as to who the head is. In 2003 it was Ramona Foley, her email is  Ramona.L.Foley@state.or.us.

The Juvenile Rights Project forced Ms Foley and then director of DHS, Jean Thorne, to sign a settlement agreement between them, promising a minimum amount of care to foster children, to be fully implemented no later than 1999. When it became apparent that Oregon would not be compliant with the settlement the settlement was re-iterated. The most current one was signed in 2003. It has NOT been enforced and more than 50% of the counties, including Clatsop, are not in compliance with it. If you want to go to the Juvenile Rights Project and read about the agreement it can be found at  http://www.jrplaw.org/SystemofCare.htm . They also provide attorneys for kids stuck in the foster care system w/o representation.

The state foster care system and child welfare program are a complete bust. As one who has a zero tolerance for drugs, substance abuse or domestic violence it absolutely galls me to even form the thought that these children would be better off left in their homes, but I am slowly coming to that conclusion and it angers me to no end. Perhaps we should turn this over to private interprises. Surely, each county could chose a private business to a much better job then the dismal people we have there already, whose main job seems to be making sure they have a job tomorrow.

A local forum you may want to go to (and discuss this with an Astoria Councilor ward 2 candidate) is  http://www.voy.com/197835/ He will listen to you as one of his primary concerns are children and youth.

Get rid of Boggess 17.Sep.2005 04:08

Syd

Contact the Clatsop County Commissioners and tell them about your anger regarding Pat Boggess being hired given her track record in Wenatchee and Chelan County and costing those tax payers, along with all of the tax payers in Washington State, millions upon millions of dollars. Look up your city councilors and mayor and tell them who someone in St Helens has hired and put into the Astoria branch office to disrupt the lives of Clatsop County constuents. Call/email your state reps and senators as well.

Judge Chuck Weller is Out of Control 20.Oct.2006 16:07

A Parent

Chuck Weller is the judge who got shot: for a good reason. He is an idiot who is out of control. He always made up his mind before knowing the facts. He seems to be bias toward women: no one knows what had happened to him in the past. But one thing he always did very well: anything that destroys the future of a child will be a base for his decision. He destroyed many families and he still continue to do so, after being shot, many thought he will learn, it did not even slow him down. He just needs to be impeached otherwise he is still on a rampage to destroy as many children lives as long as he is on the bench.

Update > Rieman and Boggess in Clatsop County 14.Jan.2007 01:20

Reiman served as chairman of the Cannon Beach chamber of commerce, AFTER the city council & mayor were informed of who he was and what he had done in Wenatchee. They were asked to share the information with the members of the chamber of commerce. Their response? It was in the past and they wouldn't dream of punishing Dean Reiman, owner of The Wine Shop. They concluded by stating they really don't care about a person's past and they certainly don't care about alleged lies regarding a sex scandal.

Boggess is still serving as a case worker in the branch office in Astoria. All caseworkers are afraid, wondering on who she will lie next or maybe drop a child or deceive another Hispanic person. Such a racist.

DO NOT COME TO CLATSOP COUNTY IF YOU HAVE CHILDREN! Stay away! Not safe!

Clatsop county stole 7 year old daughter and sister from loving family. 03.Nov.2013 13:06

Clatsop county juvenile court Judge Paula Brown removed my daughter from my home due to false allegations by D.H.S. Workers Amber Walters and Tracy Woody Carmen. I have had my daughter living with me and her baby sister for the past 3 years in Portland Oregon without incident. I have had and still do have full family support along with support of numerous people in the community that were involved in our lives on a daily basis. My daughter was thriving in my care. In march of 2012 my husband filed for divorce using my distant past as an excuse to use the courts to abuse me, children and my entire extended family. I live with constant worry about my daughters safety and whereabouts due to the nefarious circumstances in which she was taken. Documents were falsified and lies were told to gain access to my child. I have never been given the chance to defend myself and have not been granted any visitation with her. She has disappeared from our lives with no real explanation. Her teachers, classmates, church, pediatrition,neighbors and especially her family miss her terribly. It is very disturbing to witness such an abuse of power and gross negligence of the courts in America today. I was viewed as a perfectly good mother as long as I remained in a miserable marriage, this makes zero sense as people get divorced everyday. Nothing has changed in my situation except for my address. I am just as capable of being a responsible loving mother today as I was during my marriage. Please put a stop to the terrorism bestowed upon children and their families perpetrated by the very system that is here under the guise of keeping families together. If you ever get to read this sweetheart...your family misses you terribly and we will never stop thinking about you. We pray that you are safe. I will never give up on you baby and neither will your sister. Stay strong and pray. Love you soooo much. Distance and time will never change that fact. Love your real mommy, Georgia
