My question involves child abuse or neglect in the State of: New York
Bottom line, the local elementary school gave false information to the local CPS about myself and my daughter. I've proven to the CPS worker that he was lied to, but no action was taken against the false information and even though I've proven my innocence to CPS, the case has yet to be dropped. I need to know what the penalty is for supplying false information to CPS. I also need to know if I have the right, under law, to confront my accuser in court or at a hearing. As well, if the accuser has documented proof that the charges are unfounded, can they legally withhold that information from CPS just to keep their accusations strong? If that is punishable by law, what is the charge? I read somewhere that giving false information to the CPS is a class 3 misdemeanor. True or false? I know I've skimmed through all the solid details, but if someone could toss out a few facts for me, i'd be grateful.
