Investigators are looking for more victims of a CPS worker accused of taking advantage of couples trying to adopt or care for foster children.
Dozens of potential foster parents already have become victims of identity theft.
Two years ago when the Robinsons began proceedings to adopt six-year-old Tavoris, they had no way of knowing the personal information they shared with Children’s Protective Services would one day be compromised.
“We felt betrayed. I really did,” said adoptive mother Leisa Robinson. “I was really hurt, because you wouldn’t expect a state agency to leak out that type of information.”
As an administrative technician, Andrea Daniels was entrusted with the paperwork provided by families like the Robinsons who want to adopt or foster children. Daniels is accused of stealing personal information from at least 70 applicants including the Robinsons in exchange for gifts and money. Prosecutors say she texted the info to her alleged accomplice, Phillip Moore, who reportedly used it to get fake drivers’ licenses.
