Do I need a lawyer if I am being investigated by the DCF?Return to Video FAQs
Absolutely. If the Department of Children and Families is telling you that you’re under investigation as it relates to your conduct towards a child, that you put your hand on a child, you left a red mark on a child, you pushed a child. Even if it’s in a lunch line or in a Kindergarten room, or whatever. If there’s an allegation that you put your hands on a child and you’re being investigated, you should contact a lawyer immediately, because that conduct can be criminal and ultimately you can be criminally prosecuted and/or potentially lose your job or any certification that you might have with the state to practice your profession.
