Hello. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be glad to help you.
Are you online with me?
Welcome to JustAnswer.com
I am sorry about this difficult situation.
Did you report this incident to the local police and Oklahoma Child Protective Services right away?
thank you i just found out that the man gave it to my son to yesterday and i have not reported it yet because im in california and going back to oklahoma on tuseday and i wanted to what till i was there so my kids would stay together my oldest son is my stepson but i have been there sence befor he was born and he sees me as his dad but the courts may not and i dont want them split up
Well, this type of incident has to be reported to the local police where the children reside and also to the Oklahoma Child Protective Services and the authorities will investigate your report and will take proper action upon conclusion of their investigation, however such investigations take time and the authorities will interview the kids, the mother and also the boyfriend and will also request medical records from the ER for the child.
Does this make sense?
Can you please let me know if what I stated above makes sense?
yes but can i have both of them charged? and can cps do anything now?
Unfortunately, you cannot charge anyone with a crime.
It is up to the police and prosecutor to make determination whether to bring criminal charges.
All that you can do is report any information of child abuse or child neglect that you have.
CPS can do a lot of things if the report is verified and it is determined that the children are being drugged up.
ok then i think i need to get on that right away thank you
The action can range from CPS taking custody of the children away from the mother to bringing felony child endangerment charges against the mother and her new boyfriend.
I completely understand how upset and angry you must be with this situation and I would encourage you to try to stay as calm as you have and to pursue this matter by reporting this unacceptable and criminal actions to the authorities as soon as you can.
