I think she should have been fired. I think that if she was hired to represent a state agency and got caught doing what she did then she didn't need her job. A state employee should represent the state and know that in public he or she has an image to up hold and should not be doing anything illegal or inappropriate.

They get paid everyday to break the law it is just unusual for them to fire them for it. If they actually fired her it is because she ironically does not have any dirt on them that they are afraid of her exposing.

They have been there awhile and I can tell by Johnsons income she is crooked. You can always tell the crooked ones by how much they get paid. Pay scale within DHS has nothing to do with how long they have been working there.

I was an employee of DHS and tried so hard to stand up against the wrong that goes on, to bring to light the corruption and flat out illegal things. Went all the way to Howard H. and had proof(written and recorded) of many things I was reporting. Not only did they not want to see it and refused to address it, it cost me my job and DHS came after my child the day I went on medical leave. I was so naive and thought i could make a difference. I thought someone would do something about these illegal actions. but the only thing I learned is get along and go along in DHS or they come after you with the same illegal means they go after everyone else. Its who you know, not what you know. I have been devestated with the level of corruption. Thats what I got from the state of OK for actually giving a crap and trying to do the right thing(even when it was not popular and DHS did not agree with me) DHS is there for the family, right, I now know better. Oklahoma is in the top 10 for corruption in the US for a reason. but stupid me will keep fighting and beating my head agianst the the wall, I have to, for my own sense of what is right. good luck to all others fighting the fight for their children. from:One of the very few workers who gave a damn, and stood up and said no, its wrong, so no place for me there.

problem is that the people who investigate the fraud and wrongdoing are, you guessed it, employeed by the state( who I have found by experience, see what they want, ignore what they want and lie at will). Almost too funny, I sound like a client. its like beating your head agianst a brick wall. NO one will stand up and do the right thing. most for fear of their own jobs. There was so so much to show what I was saying was true, but as ususal anyting that I did not save outside of the dept was destroyed or is no longer there, or according to them does not exist.

That's why I suggested the Federal False Claims Act. Consider contacting Dana Lawhon, she can be reached through the Oklahoma Family Rights Association or the Oklahoma Family Rights Association. She would be very interested in your info.

My Story
(The Condensed Version)
My grandson was taken illegally over 2 years ago, to no avail I have been trying to fight for justice. It all started with an over zealous DHS worker (AnTiffany McDaniel-Fears) who had a personal vendetta against me. Note: Evan was born on April 25,2008 the first time she sent the police to my house was May 2, 2008 at 10:30 p.m. The police officer (Joshua Pershica) told her that “there was no legal, valid reason to pick up this child”. She became enraged and very rude. She told Officer Pershica “I sent you out there to pick up that baby now I want that baby picked up now”. He then reinteratted “Ma’am I told you there is no legal, valid reason to pick up this child”. She then told him,“Tell her (me) that I want to do home inspection tomorrow at 8:00 a.m”. He told me “if she is not here by 8:30 a.m. call her and remind her she sounded pretty groggy”. I replied yes sir, I could heard her, thank you. He later told me “Be careful sooner or later she is going to find a rookie cop, or a crooked cop, that is going to give her what she wants”. I then told him thank you and have a nice night, sir. She was late the next day and so I called her like Officer Pershica had told me to do. She then told me that she never told Officer Pershica that she wanted to come over this morning. I then informed her that I heard her tell him that over the phone. She then said that she would be at the house at 9:00a.m. She continued to be rude when she got here and then threatened me when I told her that she needed to obey the law. She then told me she was the law and that she would destroy me if I got in her way. On July 18,2010 she used the powers of her office to come into my home and steal my grandchild out of my daughter’s arms while she was feeding him. They chased her through the house and ripped him out of her arms.(He has now been gone for 766 days, or 2 years 1 month and 5 days). At the time that this happened the worker had 2 active warrants for her arrest for writing hot checks. When we went to court they told my daughter to take a drug test and she agreed. They said she tested positive for marijuana so as soon as we left I took her to S.O.S. to get retested. I was able to prove that they doctored the drug test to make her look like she was doing drugs when she wasn’t. I tried to give the judge a copy of the other drug test taken the same day at S.O.S. but he refused to let us use it. I continued to try and get help from other resources and so far have been unsuccessful. I took copies of the warrants for her arrest to the Governor and several others but all they did was make them disappear. The worker became enraged with what I was doing so she told to the judge that I threatened her, 5 ½ hours later she decided to file a police report. Why she waited I don’t know there were several county sheriff’s officers who could have arrested me on sight. However I would have insisted that they check the tapes from all the cameras that could have verified that I was never even close enough to say anything.

I tried to explain to the judge what was really going on but he told me that he didn’t care. I was then told that I could not help my daughter in court anymore and that if I came back on the property I would be arrested. That statement was amended later to say that I was not even allowed to even drive down the street or come within 500 feet of the curb, of the property that the building sits on. I was later charged with a crime I did not commit and arrested. I bonded out and the worker became more enraged and told the (ADA Reagan Vincent) to have me re-arrested and this time make sure to hold me. I was rearrested and held in jail without the option of bond for 2 weeks. I was forced out of my job of 9 years with a court reporting firm by being told that I could either fight for my rights, and the rights of my family or I could keep my job but I couldn’t have both. Later my ex boss Steve Meador had an ex parte conversation with Judge Easter to rule against me in court and it was witnessed by Becky Quinton who is now deceased. Before I met this woman I had never been in any kind of legal trouble, I even have a 35 year perfect driving record. To this date I have been arrested a total of 3 times because of this woman. My boss also told me that she told him that she had been a case worker for 20 years even though she was only 32 at the time. She was fired from the Attorney Generals office in 2007 because of her rude and violent behavior which also proves that she couldn’t have worked for DHS for 20 years. She didn’t even get hired on at DHS until 2007. Since all this happened I have continued to collect more evidence and talk to more people trying to get help. I spent 18 months going to court 2 and 3 times a month trying to get a trial for the bogus charges against me. I was continually pressured to plead guilty to a crime I did not commit and the answer was always the same “no I want a jury trial”. I was continuing to be stalked and harassed by the worker and her friends. They were parking in front of my house and sitting in their car, being followed from work etc. In February of 2009 my 19 year old daughter was told that she was no longer allowed to have any contact with me in any form mail, phone, etc. I told my daughter not to worry I would make sure that they could not get you for disobeying an order so I moved out of my house. On June 22, 2009 I filed a Sworn Affidavit with the Oklahoma County Court. In August of 2009 I was arrested for the third time and given another court date. On February 23, 2010 I was found not guilty. The DA insisted on continuing to prosecute me with the same bogus evidence that they already admitted in court on January 21, 2010 did not exist. I then told them that I would have to file charges for malicious prosecution. I was told that everybody knew I was innocent but that they couldn’t dismiss the charges because it would cause an interagency rift. (I do have a recording of this conversation) I then told them well then I will see you in court, and then I will proceed with filing charges after that. 6 weeks later I got a phone call telling me that as of July 1, 2010 the charges against me have been dismissed. Now since they could not get me even though my life has been destroyed they decided to go after my daughter. On March 17, 2010 my daughter and my grandson were abused by DHS worker Yolanda Sherfield. I found out from her lawyer of the event and that they were taking my grandson to the hospital because of the abuse he suffered at the hands of the worker and his father. His father is a convicted felon and a drug dealer and has already tried to kill this child once. My daughter, until she met these people, has also never had any legal trouble and maintained a job while finishing highschool.

My daughter’s lawyer is also a witness to the abuse that took place that day because he was there.(There is also a recording of this event also) While she was at the hospital with her son the worker called the police and told them that my daughter abused her. We also called to file police report with the Midwest City police department where the abuse occurred. &#65279;In June 2010 I gave permission for my daughter and her fiancé to move in and take over the house it had been vacant for over a year. Later when we went to court we asked for a copy of both reports they gave us a copy of the one that was filed against my daughter but didn’t have the one that she filed. We asked where it went and we were told it had never been filed, so we asked to re-file and we were told no. The next time we went to court the judge did not care whatn had happened to my daughter and did not care about the tape recording of the abuse that was
made that day. The Judge told her she was guilty and told her to leave, as she walked out the door the judge told the police to arrest her. At this time she was 9 months pregnant and was forced to the ground by the police. She screamed when they hurt her and so they charged her with disturbing the peace and resisting arrest. I asked the worker how she could lie in court like that but she didn’t care. I was also threatened when I was asking them to please be careful of the baby even if they didn’t care about my daughter. We managed to get her out of jail before she had the baby.

&#65279;On July 29,2010 she gave birth to a little girl. On August 5, 2010 DHS called Emma to let her
know that they knew about her baby that she had just given birth to. They said they wanted to
come by and do a home inspection on Monday August 9, 2010 and Emma agreed. On August 6, 2010 they showed up with the police to pick up the baby but Emma was not there. On August 7,2010 they returned with the police to pick up the baby and again Emma was not there. This was all told to me by my neighbors that DHS talked to asking them where my daughter was. My neighbors later informed me that they saw Emma and her fiancé loading up their car and it looked like they were moving out. I later went to the house to check it out and sure enough they were gone. I spent several hours there cleaning the floors etc. hoping I would maybe see them come by but they never did. Since all of this has occurred I now know that they again know where I am staying since I moved out of my house in Feb,2009. They have been coming by and parking in front of the house and will sit there for 45 minutes to an hour and take notes. They make it real obvious that they are watching me but I just let them waste their time. I know this because at night I like to sit out on the front porch to get some fresh air. I do not leave the house anymore without someone being with me. I refuse to go anywhere by myself from now on, and I insist on having a witness with me 24 hours a day 7 days a week now after all that I have been through, and am still going through I am truly afraid to be alone.
Sincerely,
Dana

If u only knew. If all of you only knew. I resigned my position, because I was wrong from what I did and I deeply regret my actions. Athank you DHS for the amazing opportunity to serve the children and families of our great state. Thanks for the many prayers, kind words and support and thank u for all of your opinions and responses, I may not agree with them but I deeply respect them. You can only know another mans choices when u have walked in another mans shoes.

Yea well if you only knew what it feels like for someone to kidnapp your child just for the money. Then for DHS to have the nerve to destroy you just because you are trying to make them obey the law and do what is morally right. I don't understand how you people can be so cruel. To take a child that is loved and not abused and put him or her in a home only for them to die. DHS used to be a good organization and CPS workers used to be good people but not anymore. I wonder how many of you know that you have sold your soul to the "Devil" just so you could have some money and destroy people in the process. I appreciate your apology but at the same time I can't help but wonder if you hadn't gotten into the mess you got into how long would you have waited to tell the truth. At least somewhat anyway I can tell by the way your conversation is going that you still refuse to tell the truth of DHS as it really is. How nice it is for you to be able to keep your children yet I am a law abiding citizen not even so much as a traffic ticket and I am denied by people like you who are drinking and driving. I hope you can at least see my side of it and why I have a problem with the "DOUBLE STANDARD"

To Dana,

I do not know your specific case. I never had to 'take' a child from a parent, that was never my position. I worked diligently for 5 years to reunite families...it truly was a great joy of my life. I'm very sorry that you are going through all of this, my prayer is that it will be rectified for you and your family soon. Please know that there are really great people in the DHS organization...many warm and loving people. I do not know all the ends and outs of DHS nor do I care. I cared about the children and families that were placed in my care. Now did I do my job perfect everyday, no! But I tried. Unfortunately when my own personal word fell apart, my choices did not reflect the true person that I am. I hope things start looking up in your life!
