Re: CPS legal defense

The case in which we beat CPS in the termination trial (Dec. 18 issue; Jurors deliver blow to CPS case) you should have heard the uproar by "the group" that is CPS and the ad litems that seem to always be on almost every case. 

They basically wanted the judge [Court at Law No. 1 Greg Wilhelm] to rule against the verdict, ignoring what a jury had decided after spending almost a month of their life listening to everything CPS could throw at my client. 

They have become more about winning and "being right" than they have about helping families and respecting jury verdicts. 

Everything they wanted after they lost went against their (CPS’s) mission statement. 

They, CPS, have become this unit that works like a mob, they all get on board as early as 14 days into a case and then mob together to build a case rather than look for the truth. 

It is about winning for them and that was never the intention of the organization. 

I am glad they are now aware they are not immune to a courageous jury that can see through it all and rule against them.
