Lawsuits Against DCYF
It's Time for a New Road
Brielle was 3 years old when she was murdered in 2014. She was beaten to death by her mother, who was sentenced to 45 years to life in prison. DCYF conducted 10 investigations regarding abuse and neglect during Brielle's life. Mom had her other kids removed after beating one with a studded belt, and then had them returned while she still faced charges. Brielle had a broken leg the September before her death that DCYF ‘investigated’. Her father is suing DCYF. The settlement is private.
