Warrant details allegations made against father

Copyright © 2018 Albuquerque Journal

A search warrant affidavit filed in 2nd Judicial District Court lays out the allegations reported to Familyworks against the same foster father:

• In May 2000, a 16-year-old girl reported the foster father had raped her and grabbed her. The Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office investigated the allegation and turned the case over to the District Attorney’s Office. A DA spokesman said the victim recanted her statement and the prosecutor closed the case due to a lack of evidence.

• In October 2012, when a 15-year-old girl was admitted to Desert Hills residential treatment center she reported the foster father had brought alcohol to her room and raped her. That was reported to CYFD.

• In February 2013, a 12-year-old reported the foster father had grabbed her by the arm and dragged her through the house. CYFD was notified but it’s unclear if police were told.

• In November 2015, a 10-year-old girl reported the foster father had raped her. CYFD was notified, but a Familyworks employee noted “we only reported because we had to, not because we were concerned.” No safe house interview was done and police weren’t notified.

• In August 2017, a 6-year-old girl reported to the foster mother, who in turn reported to Familyworks, that the foster father had touched her vagina. No report to CYFD or law enforcement could be found.

• In September 2017, a 16-year-old girl told a respite foster parent, who told Familyworks, that their foster father was watching the same 6-year-old inappropriately and often makes sexual comments and pulls her close to him. CYFD is notified and a safe house interview is done with the child but she doesn’t want to talk about it.

• In December 2017, the foster family reported the same 6-year-old has said her vagina hurts. No report is made to CYFD or law enforcement.

• In April 2018, a 10-year-old girl reports the foster father raped her. The disclosure is reported to CYFD and sets off the audit and investigation.

• In June 2018, an 8-year-old girl who had been living in the home is given a safe house interview and reports that the foster father digitally penetrated her.

Foster family has troubling history
