Social Worker Lied In Court To Persuade Judge To Remove Four Children From Their Parents

An Iowa social worker who lied 10 times to a judge and suggested four children should be placed in foster care has struck a plea deal so she could serve no time in prison.

The Daily Mail reports Chelsie Gray,30, lied during a December 2017 court hearing about attending monthly visits with the family and provided false evidence stating the mother agreed with the terms of her probation and testing positive for drugs.

Judge Gregg Rosenbladt said Gray’s claims were unbiased and credible, leading up to the child being separated from their parents.
