I read a post on here a few months ago about a man who was fired from DCS in Putnam County for inappropraite behavior with a child. Anyone remember who this was and anyone know what ended up happening with that case? I heard he was fired and hope so...as I have family that receive services from DCS. I don't want those kids to end up in some pervert's hands.

I think you are talkin about Greg Bowman from DCS. Yes - he got fired for inapropreate things with a child. Somebody said he was going round sayin that he got let go for not doing his computer work? Phuleaseee.

I remember him back in the 80s at Grady's. Me and my hubby used to go to that restrant he owned way back when. I mean food was pretty good, but he payed more attention to our kids than the service. Makes sense on why now. How can creeps like that even land jobs at a state level.

Yucky. Greg has to be almost 60 now. We always thougt he was a crazy weirdo.

Know one thing's for sure. Would never have left my kiddos alone in a room with him.

Greg.........I know him. That is just nasty. Not sure if he did that or not but wouldn't be surprized. There's alot of strange people out there that act normal. Anne, do I know you? Use to go to Gradys all the time too. It was a hangout of mine........long time ago.

Oh, almost forgot to say. Curious, there's no need to worry about your family's kids. He is no longer with DCS.

But at the same time wanted you to remind you that you can never be to careful with your kids/grandkids. Keep um close to ya and always be cautious of potential predators of children.

Years ago when I was 7 or 8 I was with a friend of the same age walking around our neighborhood. He was in a blue Mach I with two friends. He was with a long dark haired boy (who was driving) and a long brown haired girl with blue fingernail polish. They pulled up and Greg started whistling and hollaring at us asking if we wanted a ride. It really scared us as no one was around and we were little. We said no and they laughed and peeled out. I saw them later that day at a store and told my mother who went outside to the car and confronted them. They were about 17 or so at the time. I have never forgotten him all these years and always thought he was a creep. I don't know who the other two are but remember Greg since he was the one nearest to us in the passenger seat and doing most of the whistling and cat calling. I heard other awful rumors about him through the years but don't know what is true. After reading this, I think there was truth to them. His exwife from about 20 yrs ago could tell you some stories. I heard DCS was involved then. Amazing that he passed a background check. They obviously didn't talk to her.

I know Greg as well and I would have to see him convicted of something before I believe this is true. Greg is a good hearted person that means well. I truly believe this story is being fabricated some.

Not fabricated at all. I have told friends about it for years as I didn't trust him. I would speak under oath about it. My mother would also. It has been so long ago that I was told when I spoke to an authority figure that there was nothing they could do about that particular incident but they would make a note of it. Looks like it has all caught up with him.

What do you expect? This is the town whose officers routinely come under investigation for planting evidence, the county who has at times elected a tax assesor so bat s*%t crazy he assisinated a state senator, who elects a county road supervisor who is in his EIGHTIES, who accepts a city council that is OBVIOUSLY operating as a matter of COURSE in ways that are the very definition of "conflict-of-interest " by accepting bids for insurance from spouses and offering duel positions for decades to fire chiefs/councilmen, and the home of police officers who shoot one another in the heaad at backyard barbecues over women without even getting arrested that very same day. It does'nt matter if it's the county school board laying off every single maintenence/custodial worker and substituting them with contract workers (a theft of pensions), playing games on the Algood city council with paying earned vacation pay and severence on a "who pissed who off that probably should'nt have been there to begin with" basis, or a D.A. who decides his office should be incorporated into his proselytization efforts, if you want a shining example of beaurocratic kknow-how, look no further than right here in our own backyard. Normally, I could'nt care less, but the fact of the matter is you are about to see the beaurocratic machine EXPLODE nationwide thanks to bail-out cash and the "world is burning" mentality that made sure cap and trade and soon enough government healthcare will be passed.

If so ohhhh yeah i remember him, he was creepy.
I had a run in with him when i was about 14, him and his little follow along Hawkins who seem to ignore it all.

People like him are the reason i still don't trust men.

Did'nt expect to run into another "reader." Don't worry, we're definately gonna be in the "minority". Everyone here is going to forget about how their local Democratic-Republican elected moron had pissed on every elected office they've held and put the idiots or their successors right in again. The only lesson learned around here from the byron looper "republican revolution" is that the flavor of the month will make you feel good for a month or so. This is the state that put Andrew JACKSON in the White House. We sunk GORE!(people don't understand that.... if vice-president Gore had carried ONE SINGLE tobacco-producing state in 2000, there would have never BEEN a Florida recount, look it up, if you have more than a Mtv-oriented attention-span). Forget I said anything. Life's great here now.

Just to clarify - there are 2 Greg Bowmans in Cookeville area that have BOTH worked with children. I have heard that the one that works at the Juvenile Probation Office is actually ok.

The other one (person that Curious was asking about) worked at DCS and got fired not long ago for inappropriate behavior with a child. He has a LONG history of messing around with underage kids. And - as far as I know he is not married? He also owned a restaurant many years ago. 55-60 years old - he is, I believe.

DCS probably wants to keep that "hush hush" would be my guess???? But - as we can see here, looks like there are at least a few people that have suspected he was a pervert for a long time.

OhBoy - again, sorry for about your experience of him trying to trick you into a car when you were just a young girl. Glad you are one child that got away unharmed!

Going to church doesn't make one a good man. A church is a hospital for sinners. There are all kinds, good and bad, in churches. Just like pedophiles often seek jobs working with children, hypocrits also go to church. Maybe he will learn something.

Wow.. This speaks volumes about what's wrong with his (daughter- his only daughters older sister, which is not his). She used to be a good friend of mine and she's flooded with mental illness. When I would spend the night with her he would hit on me!!!! Hope they get the help they need..
