NY: One father’s fight to remove his name from child abuse register
Buffalo News – January 15, 2017
A custody battle was going on, and accusations were flying both ways. But with Mylett creating a steady ruckus, Erie County’s department of Child Protective Services decided he had emotionally harmed his 10-year-old. The agency placed his name on the state’s Child Abuse and Maltreatment Register. It’s a list of people deemed unfit for jobs caring for children, and the stigma can reverberate in many ways. For Mylett, a Family Court judge restricted his access to his child.
