CPS Abuses Power Discriminating Against a Biker Family
On December 7, 2018, Carrie Poier CPS worker, Debrah CPS worker, Lawrence Taylor Supervisor of CPS, Emily Green CPS worker, and the Preston County Sheriff’s Department all showed up at our house.
Carrie Poier, Debrah, and 2 deputies entered our home with what they called an Emergency Petition to remove five of our children.
One child had just come home off the school bus while Carrie Poier, Debrah, Emily Green, and Lawrence Taylor were loading up our children into 2 different vehicles. While the deputies were at our house with Carrie Poier they kept trying to get a fight out of our 16-year-old son. That is when our son drew a line and told the officer to step across the line and come to him and that he was not going to follow him.
The deputies placed their hands on their guns. The situation was very tense. The paperwork was then thrown in their father’s face and the exact words that were spoken to him were “this is your paperwork.”
While Carrie Poier was in our house that evening she did not check our food supply or any other accommodation. During that time the children’s grandfather showed up and was speaking with the supervisor Lawrence Taylor and told him that he would be willing to take our 5 children home with him. Lawrence Taylor told him that he would see what he could do for him on Monday. Lawrence was supposed to call the grandparents and that did not happen. The grandfather called Lawrence Taylor and spoke to him and was told that someone would be coming out to check the grandparents’ home. Lawrence Taylor lied. He then told the grandparents that they would have to become foster parents and that they could not let the Father or Mother come to their house at all. That did not end up happening either.
In the first court hearing, everyone appeared in person. The Father’s attorney Aaron Yohoo and GAL Richard Guttman, The Mother’s attorney Maria Borror and GAL Ashley Hunt, and the GAL for the children, DeAndra Burton. Anne Armstrong and Carrie Poier were also present..
Carrie Poier went on the stand and falsely testified on the children’s Father by stating that he the Father was going to “Call in Hell’s Angel’s” on her and she stated that she was in fear for her life. The children’s Father and other both stated that the Father did not say that.
While Carrie Poier was standing on the porch of the family Carrie Poier stood there looking down at her feet. The only thing that was said to Carrie Poier by the father was that she did not send any letters, did not leave any cards on the door when she said that she had shown up and she did not, and nor make any phone calls to the father or mother stating that she was wanting to make a home visit or even to let the father and mother know that they had an open case. Carrie Poier has made a home visit to their new home in November 2020 and did indeed do an inspiration on their new home that they are renting and paying rent to the mother’s attorney that was representing the mother in this case. During Carrie Poier’s inspection, the question was asked the Mother and Father if the house passed Carrie Poier replied”Yes, you have all the essentials that are needed and will work on reunification with motoring, for which there again was a lie.
Then one deputy that was in our house took the stand and testified against the children’s father and testified that the father had said to him ” I will have your badge by tomorrow.” After those 2 testimonies were finished and Carrie Poier and the deputy were taken off the witness stand the court started talking about the visitations, and Anne Armstrong stood up and yelled “Mother only” and of course Judge Steven Shaffer agreed with Anne Armstrong the prosecutor and called the Father aggressive.
At that point and time, The Court, Anne Armstrong, Carrie Poier and the children’s GAL DeAndra Burton wanted to provide transportation for the mother. The mother was being required to ride 350 miles with a male driver by herself and the mother fought and fought until she got it approved for the father to be able to drive with her. The mother does not trust other men because of a sexual assault that happened to her by a doctor and remarks that a psychologist had made toward her.
On February 15, 2019, the Mother had a baby girl. The Mother ended up having to have an Emergency C-SECTION during which the Mother and the baby both died and had to be revived. While the baby girl was still in the hospital Mother was allowed to see the baby but the Father was stopped due to Judge Steven Shaffer, Carrie Poier CPS worker, Anne Armstrong, and the children GAL DeAndra Burton.
At first, when the 5 children were removed the order did not include the unborn child. The children were separated. The 2 girls ages 9 and 6 were put together in Terra Alta (Preston County town in West Virginia). One of the boys who was 3 was placed by himself in Morgantown. And the other 2 boys who were 12 and 16 years old were placed in foster care in Huntington, West Virginia with a CPS worker. By the time the baby was born all of the children had been placed together. When the baby was born she was put directly in the NICU at Ruby Memorial and was there for about 2 weeks. When she was ready to be released she was also released to the same foster care home in Huntington, West Virginia with her siblings.
Carrie Poier went on the stand and falsely testified and that the MOTHER and FATHER “DID NOT HAVE ANY RUNNING WATER OR FOOD.” The deputies falsely testified that the children were dirty and that their clothes were dirty at the time of the removal.
At another hearing, the prosecutor Anna Armstrong, Carrie Poier, and Judge Shaffer had the Attendance Coordinator Carol Riley and Principal Jim Hoit from South Preston School falsely testify against the Mother and Father. The principal said that the Father was always running his mouth in the background to him while he was on the phone talking to the Mother when the Mother would call the school to check on the children. Then there was a psyche evaluation that was done on both the Father and the Mother. Dr. Baker who did the psyche evaluation testified against the Father as well and made inappropriate sexual comments towards the MOTHER during her evaluation.
After those false testimonies were made it was brought to the Judge’s attention by the Father’s new GAL that the FATHER should be getting visits with the children. Judge Shaffer granted the request and said that the MDT was to have a meeting about getting the FATHER to see his children. But that was also a lie because Carrie Poier came back to another hearing saying that she had a letter from the children’s therapist saying that it was not a good idea for the children’s FATHER to visit with the children because the court and Carrie Poier keep referring to the FATHER as being aggressive.
The 11-year-old daughter has not talked to her siblings since before June and the MOTHER and FATHER have not gotten to speak with their 11-year-old daughter due to the fact that Carrie Poier has had her in 3 different facilities. She is now in Virginia and Carrie Poier says she has a court order for her to keep her in Virginia, but nothing has been seen by the FATHER’S attorney who is now Micheal S, Andrew Frye Father’s GAL, Hillary Bright who is also helping with this case, or Jennifer Yost who is now GAL for THE MOTHER. Carrie Poier has also had our 8-year-old daughter moved to Parsons West Virginia in Tucker County. The MOTHER’S attorney has been trying to get info as to where the 8-year-old child is in Parsons, but cannot get any info from Carrie Poier.
At this time the Mother and Father have had their phone calls suspended due to Carrie Poier and Anne Armstrong, the GAL DeAndra Burton, and the Judge due to the fact that the Father and Mother have had vehicle problems. And now the Father has gotten his driver’s license taken away from lies and false information from the STATE.
CARRIE POIER went on the stand and falsely testified on the children’s Father by stating that he the Father was going to “Call in the Hell’s Angels.” on her and she stated that she was in fear for her life. The children’s Father and Mother both stated that the Father did not say that. While CARRIE POIER was standing on the porch of the family CARRIE POIER stood there looking down at her feet. The only thing that was said to CARRIE POIER by the Father was that she did not send any letters, She did not leave any cards on the door when she said that she had shown up and she did not, and neither did she make any phone calls to the Father or Mother stating that she was wanting to make a home visit or even to let the Father and Mother know that they had an open case.
On January 19, 2021, the Father and Mother both were forced to sign over parental rights. JUDGE SHAFFER had advised both the FATHER and the MOTHER they only had 5 minutes to make their decision or HE the JUDGE was going to REVOKE their rights himself and place both FATHER and MOTHER in JAIL.
