My question involves child abuse or neglect in the State of: CA
I have a co-worker who had the police called on her the other night for an argument she and her husband were having. When the police showed up the husband mentioned methamphetamines so the police asked if there was anything in the home. My co-worker said a smashed pipe.
To make a long story short the police ended up asking her to become a C.I. or they would arrest her and her husband for child endagerment and put her children in the system, ages 14 & 12.
She has no prior record and there is no previous C.P.S. matters.
Without all the accusations of being a bad person for using, etc. etc. She is worried about her family if she becomes a snitch.
Can the police do this to her children without any actual proof or come back on her for something else?
Please only advise on this if you know what youare talking about. She don't need any sarcasm or ridicule. She got enough of that from me.
